    it seems the back lighting is all messed up and i'm wondering if its worth contacting samsung about this. it really only is noticable on black screens but there are very bright sections on the top and bottom of the screen and then on both sides there are triangles of bright that are pointed towards the center of the screen.

    This is really unacceptable for a $340 monitor

    determined it was faulty very quickly and they're sending me a new one for free, send back this one and hopefully have a nice monitor
