Why so much backlight bleed?

Basically this yeah, curved screens require different solutions for backlight, which are more flexible, but of lower quality i guess. The spreading of the light looks good so nothings broken i guess.

My HP Omen 32, a 32" 1440p 75hz flat monitor has no backlight bleed. 

 

I bought a Benq ex3203r, a 32" 1440p 144hz curved monitor and it has visible backlight bleed, thought only when the screens basically black, but it's a jarring comparison. 

 

I looked into it and it seems backlight bleeds just an acceptable norm but how does my Omen have literally no visible backlight bleed even in pitch black conditions but my way more expensive Benq exhibit bleed?

 

I noticed it when playing the intro to Catherine Full Body 3 days after I purchased the monitor. I was going to use this Monitor for gaming and my flat Omen for editing but am wondering if what's seen in the image is normal or not. Thanks.

Yes BLB is a common problem with curved screens.

 

it has to do with the seal between the backlight and the LCD layers of the panel.

 

Small areas can sometimes be tweaked by the user, its a bit of a DIY approach but is relatively safe.

You have to tighten or loosen the screws around the edge of the screen, the idea is to squeeze or loosen the grip on the panel in an attempted to 'fix' the areas the light of getting through.

 

However, severe BLB is next to impossible to stop,  its best to , if its important to you, just get it replaced and try ur luck again with the panel lottery.
