    Anybody out there have an Area 51 with the 360hz/300nits/IPS 1080p panel? If so, how do you like it? My current R4 17 has the LG 1080p IPS panel and I swear I've never seen anything quite like it ... just an amazing, perfect monitor that reaches eye searing levels of brightness and clarity. It's 60hz but overclocks to 100hz easy. Hoping the Area 51m I ordered with the 360hz screen comes close to matching it ...

    Well finally got the dreaded palm rest staining - its light, tried dishwashing soap, magic eraser (don't do this, leaves a slightly reflective surface at an off-angle in the right light) and even Meguiar VRL stuff.... planning now to put on some kind of vinyl skin to cover it :mad2:

    Yeah, be damn careful cleaning the fragile coating. This is one below of the worst I have seen. [​IMG]
    If this have been an Apple product it would be a huge case on the web. And none would accept it. Would probably been named Coat-Gate:D

    You can get full body skins for these ... might be a good option as that's dang unsightly; glad I got the black one. The skins come in solid colors and other textured variants ... search around ... I think one manufacturer is "MightySkins" or something like that ...

    An option here...

    Another here...

    Some examples:

    Skins are easy but a respray looks better, in my opinion. I'd love to get my hands on a 51M to try a respray.

    A very disappointing, but true, statement.
    Most disappointing since it wasn't always this way.
