That is backlight leakage.
Wow that sucks.

It's pretty common and varies a lot as far as how bad it is. Most screens have at least a little backlight leakage in one corner or another. It can be pretty distracting if it's bad especially with games that are dark (Doom3 for instance) or if you happen to be watching a movie on the screen that has a lot of dark scenes in it. It can make things look pretty washed out.

One of the few areas that LCDs really suck wind - generating true blacks.

Quick question though, which revision did you get? The newer Dec revision is the one not likely to have issues.
December A00 Rev Made in Mexico. I contacted Dell about the FP. I should have a replacement on Monday. Crossing my fingers hoping I get a good screen this time..

We have reviewed your order. Although we had anticipated being able to ship your order sooner,
we are experiencing an unexpected delay with your order and will not be able to ship this order and any associated orders until on or before 01-14-2005.

No action is required to proceed with the new date, however, if you do not wish to wait, you may cancel your order.
I wish they would give me an explanation instead of some vague crap like this. WTF is the problem? Hell if I know.

*EDIT* Called them. They are on backorder now. Weeeee... I suppose if there's a bright side when I finally get one it should be a newer revision than the ones that supposedly have backlight issues.

Hey Riptide I think the delay is being cause by a new revision that should be available in the next few weeks. I recieved a 2005FPW from the December batch and the backlight leakage issue is still not 100% resolved. Hopefully your FP will be perfect!

like I had said before... dell generally doesn't keep inventory on its shelves and ships as available...

the delay should not be too long but the product is extremely popular

I will keep checking the status for you as best I can... I am not seeing any extended delays on your particular order screen and like I said your order should be shipping soon...

Just got an e-mail saying that my 2005FP shipped friday the 7th!!
Now I'm impatient. I really hope I get a new revision (Dec.A01 or Jan.A01?).

Not really worried because I have 21days to get a refund if it doesnt work out.

WTF. That makes me just a little irritated. I placed my order on the third, you placed yours on the fifth, and yet you got one shipped out and I got put on backorder?

That is effin annoying as hell. I swear to all that's holy, if I didn't have bad luck then I wouldn't have any luck at all. I can't believe how I always manage to get crapped on.
