LG 29UM67-P light bleed?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought a LG 29um67-p a week ago. It came with noticeable light bleed or IPS glow. I honestly cant tell the difference since it's the first IPS panel I have owned. I decided to request an exchange. Amazon sent me a new one and it appears to have the same bleed/glow in the exact same spots. Bad luck or poor panels? No one in any of the reviews has mentioned bleed/glow this bad and I'm wondering if I should just return them both.

The photos are a little over exposed but I dont have a fancy camera to take them with.


Original Panel


Replacement Panel



I mirrored the settings I had on the original panel. And I already have the brightness set to about 50%. The replacement panel seems to be worse then the original.

I had the 34" version of that screen. The IPS glow was very noticable. I did not have time to test the backlight bleed fully, but I did see some on the black screen when Windows 10 loads. I just got a refund in the end.
