I'm part of the original drop and I think I went through 4 replacements. Each being worse than the other with the backlight bleed.
I'm very happy with Massdrop's support. They were very accommodating and not only sent me replacements, but also allowed me to wait for the 2nd drop and sent me a replacement that had almost no backlight bleed, dead pixels, or defects (knock on wood).
I'm glad to see Massdrop listened to user feedback and fixed the issues from the previous drop.
Unrelated question. Has anyone calibrated their monitor yet and is willing to share their settings. I used some of the settings from the Tom's Hardware review from earlier this year, but I wanted to see if anyone has used different ones successfully.

Just got mine in today. Got it calibrated but before it was calibrated with the graphics LUT and with only the monitor settings, it still had a bit of a yellowish/pink tint/hue to it. I still need to experiment with it more later on since the color temp, gamma, and gray balance stability goes wonky below 25% brightness. If you want to try it anyway, here you go (ymmv; each monitor is unique) :
Brightness 37 Contrast 48 Low Blue Weak Gamma 2.2 Color Temp User: R62 G52 B46 Hue/Sat: 50
Out of the box, the monitor was very blue in color temp (~7500K), not to mention super bright (~180 cd/m3). No idea what the other settings in the OSD do. The manual is rather dearth on any good information (read; crappy) can can't figure out which one is for setting Overdrive.
Edit 1: The initial calibration I did here did not account for black crush which I hear is inherent with VA panels. Also a relatively fast and dirty cal so yea. mm

Thanks for sharing and yea I still don't think anyone knows what Overdrive is (this has come up in this thread in the past)

still though, kinda bad you went through all those replacements. Was looking to have this replace my benq bl3200, but enough problems have me rethinking it. Guess I'll keep waiting.

Yea. I had really bad luck with the first batch but at the same time Massdrop was underreporting how many people had backlight bleed issues with batch #1.
The new one is great so far. I just need to find a monitor calibration tool.

It's a bit late now but here's the settings I ended up with. A calibration with a hardware calibrator is definitely needed to tune in the colors for this monitor unfortunately.
Brightness 31 Color Temp User: EDIT: R53 G46 B28
All other settings I left at default. I have Freesync Off as I'm running a nVidia gpu. LOS (whatever this is) is at 1. For my particular monitor it at least sets the starting whitepoint to the standard daylight 6500K. Color temperature out of the box is way out of tolerance. Here's some results with my monitor in particular before and after a calibration. Keep in mind the software that generated these charts is really for TVs (the software that generated these reports is for HDTV calibrations, so its targeting Rec./BT 709 for a color space which is very similar but not exactly identical to sRGB) but it gives you an idea of what you can expect.
Looking at another report that's generated by displayCAL instead shows an average/max dE color error of 0.46 and 1.18 respectively. Color stability and temperature deviates from 6500K below 15-20% brightness. Calibrated constrast is just below 2500:1 at 2490:1.

What did you set your contrast, hue, and saturation at? Also gamma?

I believe I left these at default settings. I’ll check at home but they should be 50 for the contrast, hue and saturation. Gamma at 2.2
