Okay, so, I have a Dell IPS monitor, but not exactly your model. I just checked by creating a black picture and making it full screen.

I also have something like in your photo on mine in the lower left area of the screen. The lighter spot in that area is pretty large and might be about the size of my palm. It also does not go away when crouching down and looking at it directly, just like you describe what you see on your screen.

There's also some bleed in the top right corner of the screen. In that area, it's not the size of a palm, instead a 10cm strip of about two fingers width along the top edge and the right edge.

Those bleed areas on my screen seem to be a bit more yellow than the normal light shine of looking at IPS at an angle.

I don't see the bleed I described on my screen if the room has some lights turned on. I have a dimmer in this room, and if the lights are at about at least half strength, I feel I can't really notice the bleed. The whole screen is in general not really good at being used for showing something black without the lights on in the room or the daylight from the outside flooding the room.

It's really hard to judge if what I see on my screen is worse than what you've shown in your photo or not. I feel I can't say at all if your screen should be judged as "bad" or not. frown.gif

Thing is I wanted to go with an AM-VA panel because of the low chances of getting backlight bleeding, but I heard the P2414H doesn't have bleeding either. Well I guess the jokes on me. You'd think after 20 something years of LCD monitors they'd do something about it.

It's a lottery, since all manufacturers have a pretty forgiving boundaries for backlight bleed testing. I doubt any VA would be immune to that either as a reason for bleeding is basically a tiny extra spaces in the frame that allow extra light to pass through, not something panel related really.

Almost seems like it is a 50/50 chance to get a sample without noticeable backlight bleeding.

I also have same or even worse bleeding on mine. Tried RMAing it but was denied it was up to specs for them. Mind that is in Eastern Europe where service level still have a way to go.

I'm also from eastern europe but over here I get 10 days to return it. Still deciding whether I should go through with it.

That's some pretty nonexistent bleeding according to the picture you took. I can almost guarantee that unless you get an older VA panel, it's not going to be any better.

Just got my monitor replaced, this one is a bit worse. Dell should quit making monitors, really. What are the chances of fixing this bleeding if I open it up and try to even out the pressure on the panel?

You had a perfectly good monitor replaced? -_-

If I'm able to see a brighter spot of light with hue distortion from 8 feet I don't call it a perfectly good monitor. If people buying monitors 15 years ago would have told manufacturers to go eat a d**k and didn't buy these horrible panels they call monitors maybe I would have received a perfectly good monitor

I share your pain ...I also got a lemon of a screen ...from the pictures you posted it is even worse then yours.
I also plan to return the screen and exchange it for another ...hopefully, I will be able to arrange for the shop
to check the monitor before sending it to me so that I will not get another bad unit.

It seems that the reviewers got cherry picked panels for good reviews ...I examined few Dell monitors at
work (27" units) and they were very good in regard to background bleeding.

Mine has minor BLB.

To be honest it really doesn't bother me - you never notice it unless you are looking for it on purpose.

Shall I take you literally or not? You can keep complaining all you want, but the fact is that unless you want to spend significantly more than you did (llike 2x-3x more), pretty much no modern monitor is going to be better than the first one you had.
