    Wow, I think you're very right. I don't think anyone has an MX3 in this thread, but I'd love for someone to check the display manufacturer in Window System Information or w/e.

    As I posted in the ThinkPad Yoga forum, this seems to be a problem with IPS displays in general, but especially ones made by LG and especially at the 12.5" size. Sigh. I'm not sure this is even an avoidable problem.

    My regular use-case is probably the worst possible for exhibiting the image retention problem: I switch between light-on-dark vs. dark-on-light display modes, spending sometimes hours on one or the other in full brightness and then sometimes switching quickly between them. In addition they sometimes display sensitive information that I need to obscure quickly. So it would be problematic for me to drop $3k on a non-returnable, non-fixable Japanese import laptop only to find it manifests this problem even after a year of use.

    And there aren't many other products on the market that quite suit what I'm looking for. Maybe the Fujitsu T904 is my best bet, although it's bigger and heavier, the IGZO display at least is made by Sharp and not LG!

    Not sure about the CF-MX3 but the CF-AX3 enables you to set the language to English in the BIOS.

    Even though I have the LX3 and really like it, the MX3 is more what I want - except it can't have 16GB of memory like the NX, SX, or LX. All of the Panasonics weigh about the same (~2.6 lbs), so it's a matter of form factor and features.

    There is no topics about LX3, so I am asking You here.
    Do You use docking station? If yes, which one did You choose?
    Do You have WWAN in LX3?
    Thanks.

    Did you link the wrong video? That just shows the viewing angles, with and without the privacy-filter screen accessory. I can't identify any image-retention (if that's the problem you're referring to).

    Thanks though, I'm still waiting for the Thinkpad Yoga and Dell XPS12 communities to identify that they are getting updated panels from LG that do not exhibit image-retention. A bit after that happens I'll take my chances that hopefully Panasonic would be using the fixed panels as well. Otherwise I can't trust that they won't get bad IR.
