Other than that, this is the best monitor I've ever seen. If I was not so occupied with Oblivion, I would have sent it back to get a replacement. I'll send on Monday and fortunately I still have my trusty NEC 1375X 22" CRT.
Yes I have the same problem, but only buttom left and top right corners. The reason that I hadnt commented on this yet, is that I had read and seen in photos on another forum that this may totally go after about a week of heavy use. If you want to look at the photos Im talking about, Im pretty sure it was on the widescreengaming forums, under user review of this screen, Ill dig up a direct link.

**Edit**
Just thought I would repost the two photos comparing the improvement over one week.
