Yes bad viewing angle is partly to blame but that make no difference. I mean the point of having widescreen is to watch movies as well. This panel is very unforgiving, you have to look it dead on.

There is nothing more annoying than someone trying to read what you're typing when you're trying to work. Watch movies head-on. It's really not that bad.
