    After reading some threads how do I check for screen yellowing, light bleeding from corners, and image retention or ghosting. I have stared at the yearly calendar for ten minutes if it is yellow on the bottom it's not much if it was yellow would I know it?

    Good grief! Yes, you'd know if it was yellow because it... would... be....yellow?

    Image retention? Use your screen. Do you see any? No? Good.

    Next. There will be brighter corners on your display. Period, the end. It's normal. You'll see it on dark material. It's not bleed.

    Quoting myself from another thread...

    The yellowing issue is it a bright noticeable yellow and does it get worse or stay the same.

    It doesn't get worse. It gets better if you calibrate with an i1 colorimeter or some other brand.
