    I got my i3 Version yesterday (Europa) and the first thing i noticed was this backlight bleeding. It was obvious right when starting the SP3 showing up the logo which is very common. However I can see this clouding by watching movies too as there are these black bars due to the 3:2 ratio. It is only visible at black backgrounds and it looks like this:

    It is hardly visible when turning down the brightness but gets worsen when using the SP3 at full brightness.
    What can I do? Is this sort of bleeding beyond the majority?

    this problem is quite known among LCD screen devices. there is nothing you can do about yet just ignore it

    I know this issue is common however it occurs with varying severity. I saw screens without inhomogenic clouding. The bleeding was there but evenly.

    I wish i could ignore it, but try watching a movie. You can't unsee it, trying as hard as you can.

    Like Sean said it is a common issue with LCD's and of course I have some bleed as well, but nothing at all obnoxious or distracting no matter what I'm doing.

    You may have a faulty unit and have to exchange it.

    So when looking at my picture above, is your clouding as severe?

    No, I only get the typical light bleed around the edges, like in your pic. Nothing like what's in the center though.
