Should I keep this used GR3?

Bought off Ebay for an irresistible but what I maybe should have identified as a 'too good to be true' price... I went through the pictures and description quickly when I saw the ad, didn't notice any red flags, the seller has great rep, offered 30 day return, so I snatched it up...

Noticed this LCD damage right away (purple splotch lower right with small crack) when it arrived today. He had one picture of the LCD in his ebay ad that revealed the problem (though it was a wide angle shot so I was seeing the screen from much farther away), and he didn't mention it in the description...

a crop in on his shot

my shot tonight

So I contacted him about it right away and he replied basically that it's been just like this since he bought it used from B&H over a year ago and it hasn't gotten worse, but I can return it if I want... I'm torn... Got it for $550 with a case and 2 extra batteries...
