Hello guys, today I got my new IPS monitor LG 27GL850-B! Straight after plugging it in I went on to test
potential IPS glow/backlight bleeding and came up with a couple of results (see links). Both pics
are taken with my smartphone on different brightness settings. I have to say tho that it actually looks alright when
I look at the monitor with my bare eyes, without the usage of a camera (except for the bottom left part maybe).
When watching movies or playing games it sometimes becomes noticeable and pretty annoying to be honest.

Do you guys think the backlight bleeding is too much? Do I replace the monitor with a new one?

I would suggest sticking to it. I myself not really susceptible to blacklight bleed as well as IPS glow. But all of the monitors I've ordered so far (3 of them to be frank), suffer even from a more severe blacklight bleed. Your's is not that bad, it is mainly on the edges of the screen which is acceptable. In case it annoys you greatly, I would suggest to return it, but be warned that it is purely a matter of luck if the next unit will have less blacklight bleeding, or in best case scenerio no blacklight bleeding whatsoever. If you have nerves to play IPS roulette then the best option for your is to return it.
 
I'd return it.
But you don't even know what it looks like :p

It says in the post that it looks different in person, which means none of us know what it actually looks like. Which is normal for backlight bleed/IPS glow. You can't capture it with a camera.
