    backlight bleed is very common and it varies.

    if we all bought the same monitor you could have no backlight bleeding, I could have some in the right corner and Alien could have it in all corners.

    sounds like he lucked out to me.

    the only backlight bleed i have noticed is a small area in the bottom right corner where the power LED is. Even then its only minutely noticeable on a completely black screen like the ones in the link BB posted.
