Does anyone else have a panel that is noticeably darker around the left edge?

I told someone a page or two back that I'd post pictures of my panel at brightness levels similar to theirs for comparison. Here we go:

On a white screen:

At 0% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 10% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 50% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 100% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


On a red screen:

At 0% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


My panel seems to be darker along the left edge than other areas of the screen. For instance, if I have a window open in Windows Explorer and have the window snapped to the left side of the screen, the navigation pane to the left side of that window may seem like a somewhat dullish grey when in fact the entire window itself should be white.

Is that normal?

I don't notice it on mine dragging a window across the screens. If you can see it with the naked eye and it bothers you, get a replacement.

So I just got this monitor yesterday. Coming from an 8 year old dell ips and I've to say it's pretty perfect after calibration. No dead pixels and no noticeable blb.

The two things that bug me though is there's a 1-2cm scratch on the top right. It's not noticeable unless you shine a bright light on it. The second is that the enter button on the osd is a little off and I have to push it a little hard to get it to register.

Do you guys think it's worth the trouble to get it replaced or are they small defects that can be ignored? I can be a little knit picky when it comes to stuff like this so I'd like some 2nd opinions.

Uniformity issues seem fairly common. Give it a few days and see if you think you can deal with it.

I'd probably try to get it replaced. It'd suck to have the button fail and not be able to make OSD adjustments anymore.

Actually the button isn't that bad. Just a little harder then the rest. I'm more bugged about the scratch though.

A scratch is definitely a valid reason to return or exchange it. I know I'd always end up focusing on the scratch if I had a monitor with one.

Has anyone had any luck ordering these through Newegg? I'm sick of dealing with Amazon, I've received three or so lemons from them so far.
