I think its a general problem with the monitor.  I have the same issue... white seems to be brown-ish.  I'm no expert on the matter by any means but it seems as if the monitor is designed for images that have "arcade behavior".  So very bright static images like a Windows window... seem to be difficult for it.

However... when I ordered the Kortek, the first one I got was not in a Betson box and appeared to be re-packaged.  It was missing an AC power cord and the monitor bracket on the right side was mangled (interestingly the box was not damaged).  This monitor had horrible white quality.  I thought it may have been banged up, repacked and returned to factory and resold.  Turns out it was... Betson sent me a replacement and the new one does not have nearly the brown-white that my first unit did.

Monitors don't like the jostling around they get in shipment. Sometimes the picture tube gets damaged internally. If you bought a brand new monitor then it's under warranty or also the shipping company should be contacted for hidden damage and a claim filed.
