U2713HM, Macbook Pro Retina, Drop-Shadow & Gradient "Banding"

My Specs:

  • Macbook Pro Retina (Mid 2012)
  • OS X 10.10.1
  • U2713HM Monitor
  • Connected to the U2713HM from my Macbook Pro via a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable
  • 2560 x 1440 resolution

My Problem:

I've noticed harsh edges on drop-shadows and gradients with extreme "banding"/ distortion (see attachment). When I set my desktop background to a lighter color everything with a drop-shadow (nearly every application window and piece of text in OS X) looks completely "off". I've tried calibrating the monitor with software but it hasn't resolved my issue. Did I receive a monitor with a bad panel? Please advise.
