The "bleeding-like" issue appears clearly on the stripped pattern though I have seen way worse, so your unit seems a "good" one. At least I cannot see the "bleeding" on much of your other pictures, which gives me a better opinion of this screen than what I have had so far.

Yes, there is a small amount of bleed-like symptom seen on the grey bar test. But you've also noticed that it is only a small set of certain color tones and hardly any of the "real world" images are affected at all. People have blown the grey bleed on the sides way out of proportion compared to the other incredible characteristics of the display and it's overall place as the most well rounded gaming display out there.

I concur! This monitor uses parts that failed quality control for an industrial 6K monitor with the exact same features.

You have to realize that it is VA panel, which has angle viewing nuances that make the light bleed issue seem worse than it is. This is not an IPS for photo editing. Crosshatching is only seen if you sit way too close to your monitor. Color accuracy is only bad for the outer edge of the CIE sRGB triangle, but saturation sweeps are acceptable along with accurate ColorChecker and Skin Tones.

It is awesome in games!

Please don't try to judge other people's behavior without first-hand experience with the same exact unit these people actually own rolleyes.gif YOU may have gotten the perfect units - that is perfectly fine, and I wish I was as lucky as you are. Unfortunately, the "blob" of light on MY PARTICULAR unit is very noticeable and not only on test patterns but in actual games (this is how I actually noticed it at first) and in movies (it is barely visible at first but gets much more noticeable when monitor warms up) and does bother me a lot, especially considering that I prefer to play games and watch movies in a completely dark room. And yes, this is an excellent monitor in every other aspect but it still doesn't mean that everyone should tolerate a very noticeable imperfection.

Its just that those who kept exchanging them always regretted it later unless their unit was real bad. I think this monitor should be simply cheaper to be worth it but I doubt the exchange will be better... All LED monitors have light bleeds... I am not sure how much more your defect is visible but considering that defects are identical - I assume an exchange may be worse or slifhly better. Agai, these are defective screens and panels meant for a much more expensive monitor.

I had returned my 1st Eizo FG2421 back to Amazon after issues with BLB in the bottom left and random restarts. I bought it again 100 euros cheaper and this time around I got one of the Japanese built ones, 0 BLB (I've tried a lot of LCDs lately and NONE had 0 BLB like this one) no restarting issues and only 1 stuck pixel in the top left hand corner which is impossible to see unless 2 feet away from the screen on a white page. Extremely happy with the image quality now, watching movies and playing immersive games like Far Cry 3, Metro last light and Outlast is just a blast on this screen at 120hz. I do not use the 240hz as I do not like the darkening of the screen that comes along with it and the increased input delay, however I am extremely satisfied with regular 120hz mode.

I was wrong in calling that defect a backlight bleed. It isn't - its just some defect that all models do suffer from. Look at the left and fight sides when viewing dark full screen patterns, not black ones, but medium to dark gray ones. If there are no 3-5mm strips of image altering lighting then you got lucky with that one of a kind monitor because I am not aware of many others who got one like that. People kept exchanging them and either settled for whichever one they got or got a refund... What is the build date on yours? Are you using display port?

OMG - I must be going nuts but that 3-5mm "light-bleed" is moving! Put your head 100% perpendicular to either side of where you observe that defect and just stare at it - it moves biggrin.gif - gets a wee bit thinner, then thicker, etc. I wonder what it even is!

Going? You sound like you're already there. I'm not putting my head perpendicular to a defect and just staring at it. You're probably hallucinating.

I know! I like it - it wobbles! It makese think of candy and Fast & Furious 5 for some reason... So yeah I am there... but not sure if I want to go back...

Maybe just an optical illusion.
