Philips 58PUS8555 black screen not black!

Bought this Philips last month and only recently noticed this pale patch on a black screen.
The TV has been replaced and the second one has the same patch!
Anyone have any idea what it is?

Every TV or monitor have these issues, unless you'll get an OLED. Yours actually looks relatively mild. Because it is in the middle of the screen, it is often called "clouding".

At first it migh feel disturbing, but after a while you should be able to ignore it. In practice, it isn't that different from reflections.
