the VX2025WM is using an MVA panel, not a PVA panel or IPS panel. Just to clear that all up it's listed on Viewsonic's official site here: http://www.viewsoniceurope.com/UK/Products/LCDX/VX2025wm.htm it's the same Premium-MVA (P-MVA) panel as the Belinea 102035W (AU Optronics M201EW01 V0 P-MVA panel). Sounds like the "backlight bleeding" reports were more down to slight viewing angle anomlaies, i've experienced this on models like the Dell 2405FPW as well, where the screen seems a little lighter to the sides, but when you move your head along the screen it disappears. Regarding the 1:1 pixel matching, can you definitely not do this through software or the OSD then? seems like quite a big flaw to me?!
