    Read through all of those already. Didn’t get a sense that the screen was garbage. Some had defects or screen bleed. But, wouldn’t use the word garbage to describe what some experienced.

    It was one person complaining about the screen quality. All of the reviews place it in the middle of pack. sRGB is close to 100% and Adobe RGB is around 60%. The Pantone calibration brings the deltas into a narrow range which make it usable, but not ideal, for content creation. The problem with the funky backlight issue is tied to a Windows setting when the screen is at or below 20% brightness, other than the 60hz refresh rate, there isn't anything to complain about. It's a good screen on a great laptop. Could it be better? Sure, a 120hz panel would be awesome or one that's closer to 100% Adobe RGB but for what this laptop does the equipment is more than sufficient at the price point.

    Do you guys think the backlight bleeding issues are overblown?
    I am thinking about getting this but i'll be moving from US after buying this so i'll have no chance of returning. I don't want to be dissapointed in a 2k device.
    There really is a lack of choice in 1070 laptops. MSI Stealth looks OK but then you'll have to live with 120hz TN which is meh or a pen-tile 4K which is also very meh.

    Maybe the Aero 15X is worth it even with the backlight and keyboard issues.

    IMO the backlight bleed issue is less of an issue with the 15x compared to the 15 (they might have ironed out some kinks). But it's still a lottery. My Aero 15 has a great screen with minimal to no issues.

    The monitors are plugged into my external sound card with balanced RCA cables. The sound card is connected to the Aero via USB.


    Yes, the ferrite core is still on the charger.

    Just put in an order for mine through Gentech, they seemed to have the most promotions, though still fairly basic. Pretty much just opted for the free backpack and mouse, along with the Grizzly thermal. Looks like most retails are out of stock until estimated december 25th!

    I am noticing an odd shading pattern at the bottom of the screen every time I turn it on. As soon as I change the brightness it disappears:

    After I have changed the screen brightness: https://imgur.com/lc6HQi8

    It only seems to happen when the screen is on low light, but as soon as I have turned the brightness up, I can turn it back down to low and the pattern is gone.

    Any ideas what it could be?
