This is bugging me every other day. Straight-on I'm satisfied with my screen, but at any angle over 20-30 degrees off-axis, this pattern is visible.. not even sure if it's the backlight at fault, or whether it's the coating that is uneven. I don't think it's noticeable on a totally black screen (at least compared to the backlight bleed on the bottom and corners). I keep forgetting about it, but then as I leave or approach my desk I look at the screen and go What would you do? I still have a few days before the initial 14 day period expires. Sorry for the image quality.. only have a cellphone available at the moment.
