If you peer behind the border, you'll see the pixels are actually lit, discolored yellow discoloration that's found on the bottom of the panel.
Regardless of the cause, this panel is going back to S. Korea.
Interesting thanks for the update. That stinks you received a defective panel. Unfortunately you never know if you are receiving an A- or B+ panel with any Korean monitor.
Do you plan on having it replaced?

Well, let's evaluate this fairly and objectively. Two issues, doesn't constitute as "a lot". Also, the issue that Aerostah is experiencing is not a disaster or the sellers fault. Everyone is warned in the postings that these are not A+ panels, which is why LG didn't use them (could be a small backlight bleed, defective pixel, miscolor, etc). Most, and I will say, most of the time the panel issues are very unnoticeable or tolerable (i.e. a defective pixel or slight backlight bleed). It's even stated in the auction that there could be backlight bleed and it's not grounds for returns. That is the chance you take when you buy any Korean monitor. Asrostah's issue is different and is probably experience a patch of dead pixels which is over the allotted amount and the seller with refund or exchange the monitor.
