    Anyone experiencing... creeping bleed on their ux31a?

    When I got this one (my 3rd) there was no bleed at all... then there was a little and after about a week of use theres alot. Now it ranks up there with the worst bleed unit I had. I can only imaging what it will be like if it keeps getting worse.

    So is anyone else seeing their bleed get worse over time?

    Actually, I had the opposite! There was moderate light bleed along the bottom edge and after two days it seriously diminished to the point where there's almost none. Perhaps the glue finally set that holds the display?

    Backlight bleed? Fan issues? :(

    I've actually read a few posts where people said their bleed got better with time, too.

    Unfortunately for me, it was the opposite. Or at least it seemed that way. On first boot, it looked like the bleed was only in two or three places. Over the course of a week, it seemed like it grew to cover nearly the entire bottom and right side of the screen. Not sure if it really did get worse, or if my ability to ignore the problem diminished over the course of the week. I know at least that it certainly didn't get any better for me.

    Regardless, I shipped it to Asus the other day to get the problem fixed. Hopefully they'll take care of it.

    Both of my microcenter units had backlight bleed... I think its nearly universal with these things. Its a real shame too.

    I'm having fan issues with the 3rd one (from best buy) and newly creeping backlight bleed.

    In my case... its definitely getting worse with time. This one (my 3rd) didn't have any bleed when i bought it but is getting worse daily.

    Maybe a weird question, but is there any way to further turn down the brightness of the the UX31A display? It's too bright in a dark room, IMO.

    Use the Nvidia or Intel brightness and contrast adjustments.

    That did the trick. And any way to improve scaling? Seems to suck in Chrome. Firefox might do it alright. Seems to scale okay with I use the 2 finger gesture to make things larger. But I don't see a setting in the options to keep in zoomed in.

    IE seems to scale okay, but it's IE. Would rather use Chrome. Or FF if need be.
