• Red tint in corner of XL2420T monitor
    4 replies, posted
So I got a second BenQ XL2420T monitor after my last one suffered fairly bad back light bleeding and clouding in the centre of the screen. I got my second one today, no dead pixels or the problem above, except for this: [THUMB]http://oi49.tinypic.com/209ghhs.jpg[/THUMB] I get this JUST on standard mode. Not on movie mode, not on photo mode, not on FPS mode either. It happens when the RGB is 100/100/100. However, if I tone the red down to 96, it disappears. Me being slightly OCD, I feel I should replace this for this little problem mostly because it's new; I paid £260 and I shouldn't have to be adjusting my settings to counter this red colour in the corner.
If you paid that much for the monitor, it's unacceptable to have a problem like that. I'd send it back and tell them to give you a new one.
Going to have to live with it until monday and send back for tuesday, I will return, thanks! [editline]15th June 2012[/editline] What if the next one has backlight bleed or a dead pixel? This currently hasn't.

[QUOTE=Protocol7;36340472]Then you RMA that one? Truth be told I dunno why you bought another one when your first one was so problem ridden[/QUOTE] A large majority have found no problems, luck of the lottery. I LOVE this screen for the sake of 120hz. I'm also fine with the colours and gave the colour enhancement a boost in the Nvidia control panel by 10%. Looks fine for me and i'll do my best to get a good one. This is a screen I want to last me for a while for gaming. I will still be in the market for a decent IPS or monitor for films in the future.
