    I have a brand new 17.3" with the UHD panel, it is model AUO B173ZAN01.0.

    It has appeared to me that when I look at it head on there is more brightness in the centre than at the edges. However if I move to the left or to the right, a very small change in viewing angles, then the brightness shifts.

    I attach some photos as caught by the camera.

    The question I am asking is do you think it is faulty? Do you have an IPS UHD screen and does it also do that?

    I have a ew more days window in which to return the laptop if the screen is indeed defective. Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

    Brightness always shifts when you move. Its due to the polarisation of all those screen layers within the panel.

    Thanks rinneh, is that shift acceptable though? Considering I only moved half the width of the laptop on either side off of the centre?
