Hi,
Recently purchased Legion Y25-25 monitor. I am testing it for two days now, and I noticed there is a small yellow color coming from the lower left corner of the screen. Not sure if this is normal or it is malfunction and must be replaced. It can be noticiable in dark areas or black screen when you look at the corner (not in all games), moreover if the room light's switched off, it is more visiable. Should ask for replacement from same model or change the model at all?

K9spawn Not normal. I own many monitors and I've never seen this before. Your Legion Y25-25 has an IPS panel, and therefore could be subject to some IPS glow. But your examples are extreme and IPS glow is a whitish color, not yellow. I only notice the yellow in screen shot #1, 2, 4, 5. But still I would recommend that you return it directly to the store/online store where you bought it from. I would not waste time with troubleshooting it with Lenovo. I wonder if the problem is a design defect or specific to the unit that you happen to receive. Your examples are bad enough that I'd personally be somewhat discouraged from buying the exact same model, although I've heard very good things about Legion products.

I'm assuming that your display wasn't grossly miscalibrated by the OEM.

Were it me: I would return the Legion display and purchase a MSI Optix MAG251RX or something comparable that was recommended by Hardware Unboxed.

FYI: I prefer 1440p 165-180Hz displays. I'm personally using a LG 27GP850. I prefer 1440p over 1080p, but that's simply a personal preference.

@rcald2000 thanks for your fast response. I will return it as you suggest, but honestly the budget was the determine to get this monitor as it is cheaper compared to others. I think I am going ask the supplier for another sample of same model as this is screen comes with great prize and promised 240hz. Will check, and if it has the same issue I will then ditch the model completely.
