Eh...I'm used to this, it isn't just them. My LG and ASUS both have bleed from LED backlighting. But I don't have money to spend on high end monitors so to me its a non-issue.

This is what happens when you sacrifice panel quality in order to cram 3D down people's throats.

If I had the money, I would much rather spend good money on a high end IPS panel than on a gimmicky 3D. Dell's IPS panel comes to mind. Unfortunately, I can't justify spending $600+ on a monitor, so I'm stuck with my 'crappy' TN panel.

Yeah though the bleed on mine is on 60HZ non-3D monitors.
Out of all the ones I have the best BLacks come from my wifes Dell Ultrasharp (its old) and an HP one.

I'm referring to TVs here folks. NOT monitors. On monitors it is easy: PVA or one of the non-LED IPS derivatives.

Try to find a non-TN high end HDTV these days. I dare ya.

They all have bleed, it's HOW MUCH they bleed and it seems the faster the refresh rate and miore 3D compatible the more they bleed.

Which is why I don't own a 3D compatible TV :) Anyway, my preferred HDTV brand is Sharp.

I'll know in a few days if their new TVs have it to. I am due to receive a UN55ES8000 on Thursday.

On a separate note:

A few weeks ago a story was posted that Samsung was getting out of the digital panel market in order to focus on OLED. I forget exactly where the story was. Does this mean that they'll stop making Samsung branded displays alltogether? Or will the existing display technology be built by a subcontractor, and still sold branded as Samsung?
