You can see it on the back of the monitor. Near of the S/N

You can also get the exact week by opening Windows PowerShell and pasting this:
Code:
Get-WmiObject -Class WmiMonitorID -Namespace root\wmi |% { "$(($_.UserFriendlyName | foreach {[char]$_}) -join '') - manufactured: $($_.YearOfManufacture) week $($_.WeekOfManufacture)"}

Was trying to wait it out to see if anything got better but no dice :\

Manufacture date is September '15

That bleed is a bit much. I had a Dell with pretty much that same amount across the whole width of the bottom. I got a replacement from Amazon that had Zero bleed on the bottom. It has just a tiny bit on the bottom right corner. If it bothers you in normal day to day operation, then RMA/replace. It should not have that.

Yeah, I guess I'll go through with an RMA. Just curious, when was your unit manufactured?

It's November 2015. But let me show you a more exposed picture, so you can see the detail in the deformity.
Normal view

top view, but only about 55 degree angle

I don't know how everyone is taking their bleeding pictures and with what settings, can you tell me what should I better use? Well the uniformity more obvious, though, no matter what. But it's a whole lot more visible on camera, than with eyes.

Wait, no, that was a bad example, here's a better picture, which looks pretty close to what it looks like to me, only the dark areas are more black, actually everything is darker.
I captured with setting monitor brightness down to 5 from 78(close to 75 (default)), also brightness used in my previous pictures.
