I just received a new LG 32UD99-W 32" IPS display, and immediately noticed that it has color uniformity issues. The left side of the display has a "yellow/green" tint, and the right side has a "red/pink" tint. This problem persists regardless of viewing angle. The tinting is clearly visible and not subtle.
I contacted the retailer and they claim that this is "IPS Glow", and that it's to be expected.
I am not sure if I should be convinced by this explanation. This is my first LCD panel (having owned an iMac before) – but from what I've read, IPS Glow should disappear depending on angle, and should not have a withstanding effect on colors when the display is lit. Is that correct?
When the display is black, I don't notice any excessive glow or bleeding. But it bothers me that the colors are tinted when the display is showing white backgrounds.
Do you think that this is "just" IPS Glow, or a defect monitor?
