Default [Q] Dark area above power port when using low brightness

Just wanted to see if anyone else has an issue where there is an area of low brightness just above the usb/power port when brightness is below 50% or so. The area remains in both landscape and portrait mode, and is unaffected by a reboot. It is more noticeable as the brightness setting is lowered. Attached are photos of the screen at high brightness and low brightness settings with a white background. I apologize for the quality, but my phone camera was wigging out in the dark a little.

I am running 4.3

edit 2/2014: The dark area disappeared for me and the display is back to normal now. If I had to guess, I'd say it was either a loose connection that fixed itself somehow, or a software issue which was resolved by multiple reboots.

Yeah, I don't think that will be possible through the retailer (Best Buy) as it is outside of the return period. I can try to deal with the ASUS customer support of doom, though. I am also dealing with a pre-november/december dock that is also giving me troubles.
