I'm certain the tinting is due to the screen coating. I had to burn through 3 different panels until I found the one I can live with. And it is HANDS DOWN the best 1080p picture I've yet to see.:D

Yes, I've noticed this as well. The 8bit processing is not very good on the panel. I've gotten use to it because the picture is so good in general.

This is typical of these panels. If you watch a lot of B&W, it can be distracting. But for color, it's barely noticeable.
