I get what you're trying to say. There's a ton of similar issues with monitors both LCD and CRT. You can have the same exact model side-by-side, and the color output will be different in most cases.
It is a Westinghouse LVM-47W1. I've had this problem on every LCD monitor I've ever owned, so it could be just a matter of bias since everybody's oppinion of what is white and what isn't tends to be different. In general this monitor is very decent when it comes to accuracy (I've owned a few Dell, Samsung, and Sony monitors, and this one is by far the best I've had in terms of accuracy.)

This "monitor" is actually marketed more as a TV, but IMO it's much more of a monitor (for starters, it doesn't have a tuner of any kind) and it's a good one at that.
