I do have what I would say is average BLB for these monitors. Plus a little yellowing on the bottom right so I'm going to eventually take it apart and do some fixing. Have a different issue that I managed to snap a picture of. In an all-black screen I get some sort of off-shaded bar that runs vertical. Its hard to notice and took some work to just get a shot of it. It seems to source right out of that yellowing I spoke of and doesn't appear in any other color than all black. Any color or white, there's no sign of it. Its not a huge deal and its something I can live with if I have to but I personally think it has something to do with the panel issue (bend) that is causing the yellow. Anyone else ever experience this?
Mine has something like that as well, except it runs horizontally from left to right and it's more noticeable while I'm scrolling on a web page or something. Not noticeable during gameplay or anything. It's towards the bottom of the screen, a little ways up. I think I can live with that. Where I notice it most is using this web page.
Also, I did a red/black/green/blue background test. It seems I have a dead red subpixel in one spot. That's all. Since I'll rarely be ever looking at a pure red background, I think that's fine, since that's all I've seen. I haven't even ever noticed it during regular use, just pure color background tests.
This is what is bothering me the most:
I have two reasonably sized patches of backlight bleed (yellowish) that are on the very bottom middle, that's what's bothering me the4 most. To the left and right of the bottom middle. They extend a decent ways in though. Anyone got some ideas on how I should go about fixing these? They're pretty apparent on dark backgrounds and stuff regardless. Picture:
It's kind of a crappy picture but you can see those two patches. Right in between them is pretty much the center of the screen. I've tried bending the left and right side of the monitor towards me a bit. What happens is it shifts to the opposite side of the side I'm bending when I do that. I guess this might be possible to resolve using some cardboard or something. Any ideas on where to put it?
So total list of flaws:
1. Random very slightly off-color band about 30% up the screen (annoying during browsing but nothing major).
2. Dead red subpixel (really terribly minor)
3. Backlight bleed at the bottom.
Well for 320$ it's still not a bad deal. Plays games fine, though that backlight bleed is terribly noticeable on dark backgrounds... though it's not any worse than one of the Viewsonics I got. If I get it fixed this thing will be much better. Though that off-color band kind of bothers me... it's not even an accurate description since I don't know what to call it. I probably won't bother with overclocking since I don't think these are meant to do that.
Edit: Actually dead subpixel thing turned into a stuck pixel... o.o Well whateverEdited by stolemyowncar - 10/24/13 at 10:01pm
