But when i get closer with the cam al 4 corners light up like christmas trees. Here is the pic:


That looks very good. And yes, what you see in the corners is IPS glow and no amount of returning will fix it. If it bothers you a lot I recommend placing a bias light behind the monitor, this masks most of the glow/BLB, increases perceived contrast and reduces eyestrain. Alternatively you could get a VA or TN panel instead.

It is important what you actually see from your normal viewing distance, not what camera shows from 2 meters away. This just doesn't make any sense to decide whether to return monitor or not based on photo of a monitor from 2 meters away. I mean if pointlessness will ever take physical form it will be photo of monitor's blb/glow from 2 meters away.

This is all very simple, if you see those negative effects from you normal viewing distance and it is bothering you - return. If not - keep. It is not important what it is and from what distance. If it occurs within your comfortable viewing distance and it is affecting you experience negatively in significant way then this monitor is not good for you. Simple.

Except IPS glow isn't a defect and no amount of returning would help. These pictures are meant to show BLB, which is a defect, not glow.

If the glow bothers you get a TN or VA monitor.

There is some strange misconception going on that crazy glow that is covering half of screen with yellow stains is always IPS thing. This is extreme condition that cannot be accepted, there is always some glow on IPS but this kind of glow he showed on his pictures is far from acceptable, if this photo reflects what he actually sees on it. I had this U2515H for 6 months and it was very good, there was some glow but not huge yellow stains, only a bit of silverish shades around corners, basically visible only on camera and affecting only black uniformity. U2515H is very good screen, there are many very good units around, he can get much better unit.

Except that huge glow that you see on pictures is always vastly overexposed by the camera, there's no way it looks close to that in person. Glow is only obvious if you're in a pitch black room, but you shouldn't use an IPS in a dark room anyway.

No that ain't IPS glow- that's bleed- but very minimum.

I bought a U2515H a week ago. Almost zero glow. Just some very, very minor glow in the top right and left corners. I returned it though, but that was because it had bad white uniformity with the left part of the screen being noticeably warmer than the right.
