Only really visible when the screen is white , they annoyed me for a couple of weeks but now I don't notice them. Recommend you see the monitor working before buying. Sadly my original monitor failed and the warranty did not meet my expectations. A 3 year 'on-site exchange warranty' is promised in the documentation.
