Default I have defective monitor? GB2488HSU

i. My monitor is GB2488HSU IIyama. Sometimes i can see on screen weird little spot,screens:

Not my screens,but the same.

When i am close to monitor it looks like smudge. Screen:



But. When i go away few meters to rest in bed it looks like this:







But this doesnt look like bad pixel. More like smudge or something. Also this doesnt appear always. Sometimes is visible,sometimes not. Any ideas?
Also why sometimes i can see this and sometimes not? Any explanation?* **
Somebody said that i have defective hardware. So exchange my monitor?
Also actually is my 3rd day without that thing on screen.

Please share your opinion.

Hard to tell from the photos - does this 'spot' move or is it the same location consistently?

Was the screen damaged at some point - i.e. slightly dented?

Didn't we already go down this road in this post? http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...u-monitor.html

Is this the same monitor you were having the trouble with before?

My suggestions would be the same as your other thread: try and RMA it if you can. And intermittent could lead to something worse so if they will replace it with the intermittent problem get rid of it now.
