I think it is pretty annoying. But i wonder your opinions anyway. The Model is EIZO Foris FS2333. I paid $400 for it. It uses an IPS panel. I had thought that EIZO monitors were of high quality. Or maybe I just have bad luck?

Picture is taken by my 3.2 megapixel cellphone.

Yes, that is backlight bleed. Looks rather normal to be honest.

I don't believe I've ever had one that bad. The top left corner looks like a normal amount of bleed whereas every other corner looks pretty bad IMO.

This seems atrocious for a god tier (I'm talking a step up from Asus IPS and Samsung PLS here) branded IPS screen.
I would honestly contact EIZO directly first to see what they have to say.

Yikes, that's supposed to be a fairly high end brand isn't it? My $330 Panasonic TV doesn't even bleed that bad.

Is that an LED? I have 2 acer LED LCD monitors that don't really bleed at all but my Samsung LED TV bleeds like no other, used to drive me crazy but now I don't really notice it.

Isn't it so that you would only notice it if you are watching in the dark? You should not do that anyway (it is not a projector).

You would notice it all the time, white becomes yellow and colours shift.

I would venture to guess that the cell phone picture makes it look worse.

no. considering cell phones have lower light sensitivity, whatever shows up is infact less brighter.

No, It'll boost the ISO to compensate for low light causing exactly as 3870x2 said.

The effect you are talking about is with an unlit subject with strong/medium bias lighting, you would see that there as the contrast is underwhleming..

For a high end monitor that's bad my 120$ dell monitor isn't that bad.
That screen should look like the top left corner all around.

Yes that isn't a TN monitor its a really expensive IPS, he should have really really low bleed, even my TN doesn't bleed that badly
