    What about the blues and the green-ish tint? Does that exist on your new panel?

    I got so carried away with the reds that I didn't take a "before" picture of the blue/violet :mad: . From what I can tell now, there's also the same degree of improvement of the blue/violet as there is with the red/orange--i.e., enough of an improvement I can live without grudge. Even without a side-by-side comparison I can tell based on some pix I took of some purple/violet flowers. Same with the greenish cast--less than before, still noticeable especially when I have windows explorer open on different computers (i.e. any white screen shows it off the worst).

    So yours is similar to Pakii's photos? If you do get a chance I'd love to see some photos or some impressions about sites that we can visit to compare colors like facebook or dead pixel test. I actually see the biggest difference when I look at this screen (not my screenshot) where the colors are very noticeably more blue on my E14.

    I guess that is the only benefit of Apple products (for the consumer). If they had a problem like this there would be such a massive uproar and exposure that Apple would release a solution (that actually fixed the problem -.-) really quickly. With HP, not so much

    You mean the way Apple blamed users for the iPhone reception problems that ultimately resulted in a class action suit? No, Apple is not perfect there, either.

    Apple's response if they had OrangeGate on their Macbook:

    "You're looking at it the wrong way"

    Heh.

    Has the issue of orange reds been fixed lads?

    I am thinking of sending back my new Sony VAIO S15 and replacing it for an Envy 15, however the last thing I want is another laptop with incorrect reds that show as orange.
