Backlight bleed on 2012 21.5" iMac

Hi guys,

Got a new late 2012 iMac 21.5" from Best Buy the other day and have noticed today that the left side of the display seems a little faded or washed out. Can you guys confirm if what I'm seeing is indeed backlight bleed?

You can't test that by doing a print screen! Use a camera and don't over or under expose the image.

You can't use screen grab to show that!
Anyway just take it back for a replacement.

Backlight bleeding looks fine, however you should immediately check for,
Yellow tint
Green tint
Glue residue
Stuck pixel
Bad wifi when holding it
Take a picture of the casing, blow it up to 20x and look for imperfections
Check to make sure its a retina screen from Samsung........
