    Nice post projix...

    Good when people can post up some rational thoughts instead of jumping on the internet bleed bandwagon. Puts this virtual non-issue in good context!

Download color profile for it from tftcentral, they also tell you what brightness values to use etc. If the second picture is lifelike, then you might even consider yourself lucky :P.
    Hey there Janne-71,

    Thanks for the reply, ehm the picture is not as representative of real life as it could because let's say when I have the brightness high, 80 for instance and I have a dark background from ingame or a movie or perhaps even a wallpaper, i can see 3 spots where the bleeding comes through, however, like you pointed out I think the chances of me getting something as good as this is pretty slim because the previous specimen was terrible when compared to this one.

    Now ofcourse, an individual who is OCD on perfection and what not could say this is not acceptable but I am quite inclined to keep this one unless of course i find scratch marks or other blemishes on this one too, if that is the case then I will ask for a refund because I find it difficult to fathom how a monitor for this price can have such bad QC that a scratch is on the display and the possibility of having extreme bleeding issues and what not.

    So you reckon me lucky huh?

    Try to use 30-40 brightness at most, it is really enough for this monitor. That might help with the issue also. Myself i use 25. And yes, that 60 brightness looks good to me, almost no bleed at all. Should not bother you in real life gaming or whatever you do with it. IPS monitors have their faults some more some less.

    Im with Arne on this one. I find it laughable when I see someone post one day of how great the monitor is then the next day how awful it is when they read of how if you do something that no one will ever do in normal operation by making the room pitch black, cranking brightness to max and displaying a black screen. If you do and sit around looking at a black screen you have other issues that only professional help may have a chance at resolving.

    I have this monitor and have it set up in a dimly lit room with settings at a comfortable level and If I go to a dark screen and look at it in precisely the right angle I can see a small amount of bleed. Normal use I don't notice it at all. Have I tried the aforementioned test with the dark room and max brightness, uhhhhhh NO as I will never use it to stare at a black screen in the dark. I'm old but my mental state hasn't slipped that far off.

    Who is Arne? I think you mean Janne?

    Anyway, I do not understand what you are trying to imply since nobody attested to anything you addressed, but now that you mention it, I do think that any individual should test their monitor and see whether there is any excess bleeding or some physical damage as was the case with my previous specimen because the acceptance of ips glow and bleeding is very subjective and depends on the individual, BUT, scratches or any other physical damage, nope, there is no way in hell that something like that is acceptable for a 800 euro product, you might not agree with that but then again, it makes no difference, at the end of the day people will decide for themselves whether they will accept physical damage on a 800 euro monitor or not.

    I think i will keep mine because for all I know if I return this one I might get something much worse than the first.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts guys.

    No I mean Arne, Poster at top of page and long time member.
    Go back and read the previous page and some of what I addressed it there and this forum and multiple others as well as youtube is saturated with precisely what I addressed.

    Scratches should be addressed by the vendor you bought it from for selling used and returned items as new, you are right that this is not acceptable and I find it highly unlikely they are leaving the factory like that. This is all from people doing precisely what I pointed out then returning multiple monitors trying to achieve the impossible. You may or may not get one that is a little better but none are perfect.

    I bought this monitor a few months ago. I have been nothing but pleased with it. I did extensive testing ot make sure I "won the lottery", and buy, I sure did. I use it almost exclusively in a dark room with no lights but the red LED on its base. I keep the brightness up all the way, with the blue light filter on level 4 until I fire up a game. I leave it overclocked at 165 Hz, and I use G Sync to slow it down dynamically when required (rarely, though, with my O8G).

    I am happy to report zero stuck pixels, zero dead pixels, zero bleed, and minimal glow. I will point out that I have a very recent serial number, such that it is after all of the production issues that this monitor sadly faced. That said, though, I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

    I think the only thing I'd ever change on this would be a USB port or two on the left side for easily sticking in a USB stick now and again, as accessing the ports from underneath is difficult and only really for permanently plugged in devices. But those, for me, run directly to the computer. Given that the M8E has a ton of ports already.... well, you get the idea.

    Anyway, thanks for the write up. Along with many other reviews, it helped inform my decision to make this be my early Christmas present towards the end of last year. It's just taken me a long time to come back around and finally post here

    Happened to read this thread again, and +1 on this.
    My brightness in a lit room is 33...

    I can't imagine using 80 brightness in a dark room - that will burn your retinas out.
