    Just submitted my 3 star review to the HP site commenting on the color issue. It looks like several of the other color complaints are now posted.

    Just go mine yesterday and the reds are orange. Havent tried color calibrating with my Spyder yet.
    I did try to plug in a Samsung 830 SSD - recovery discs wouldn't work with it the first time around. I'll try again tomorrow, probably send the thing back.

    It might be that I don't have good eyes for color or I'm just a few lucky one. But so far, my E15 with IPS screen can produce RED and VIOLET. The hardware ids: LGD0323. Also, I reinstalled my E15 windows 7 as clean installation.

    call me crazy, but iTech4Life's looks orange to me (i'm on my work computer with a good display at the moment)

    or maybe i've just stared at my 15 for too long and am losing my understanding of red

    Like I said, may be my eyes are not that good with color or my Lenovo T410 has the same problem? I don't know.. You'd be the judge.

    His comparison shot shows that the Envy 15 gives off a slightly more orange color reproduction that his other laptop, but the difference is minimal. This goes in line with the conclusion that another user who posted various comparison screenshots with photos that had shades of red in them: the Envy 15's ability to produce shades of red (not just pure red [255,0,0]) is inconsistent.

    I'm not using a calibrated monitor, but I never have had an issue with seeing red on my Lenovo's display. The comparison you posted is way more similar than other people who posted pictures of the Envy 15 and another monitor displaying pure red. The problem with comparing comparison shots though is that people are using different quality cameras, and it's possible that some cameras are not correctly capturing the color differences, or that some cameras are exaggerating the difference.
