I read this review, and sure enough once I swapped my cables, my monitor with a "yellow tint" turned properly white. The problem is the mini DP to HDMI cable I've been using that has been adding a yellow tint. So not all cables are equal and your monitor should be tested with different cables.
I notice he mentions conversion from HDMI to VGA, for example, and in my case the problematic cable is indeed a conversion cable, in my case from mini DP to HDMI. A straight HDMI or DP cable probably is less susceptible to issues.
I have 2 of these and probably going to order a 3rd. I didn't order them at the exact same time as others are blaming the new design to cause a "yellow tint". I had this "yellow tint" and washed color issue due to the cables, graphics card, and KVM that I use so I fixed the issue via software.
For those who read the negative reviews about this yellow tint... This is more than likely caused by the cables, graphics card, or other device in between. I confirmed it by simply switching the cables... A very simple debugging task that takes seconds to perform rather than simply blaming the manufacturer...
I'm writing this review to clear up some of the confusion that I had read with people who didn't do this simple debugging task and blame the monitor and go through the whole replacement process. I'm trying to educate and inform those who are looking to buy this monitor that the specific "yellow tint" is a cable / port issue which can be corrected by software.
If you are going to convert say HDMI to VGA, make sure that the reviews are solid. I had ordered a new adapter and it cause more of a yellow tint. Plugged the other adapter back in and it was back to normal. Also I had another video card that by default didn't have this issue. It was a cheapo fanless Geforce 210 that had DVI and VGA. My new GTX 750 Ti caused the HDMI + VGA to have a "yellow tint" which was easy to correct.
