Hello,

I wanted ask for your advice on a new monitor I've purchased.

This particular model is Dell U3417W Ultrawide. My concern is the backlight bleed - it's definitely discernible on a black screen in the dark and some dark scenes in movies in lit conditions, especially the top left corner. I wouldn't bother about it so much if it wasn't for the fact this is not a cheap device.

Is it something normal what I can expect on this panel and monitor model? I've read over the internet about similar issues, but am not sure whether this is not too much.

The IMG_4406 perhaps is not the best quality, but perhaps captures what can be seen with the eye.

Thank you in advance for any comments or advice whether I shall opt for a replacement or is it likely going to be the same.

Looks like IPS glow to me. I have the U3415W and this seems pretty normal. If you can calibrate the display see how it is then. The out of the box setting are usually too bright.

Thanks for the response!
Yes, the pics were taken from distance but upper corners might be ips glow primarily. The bottom though is pretty persistent. Below picture in dim daylight. Brightness at 60%.
My main concern would be the bottom left corner..
