    As reported by Sager on August 15th... :)

    '....we have added additional QC Testing into our process to screen for ghosting issues panels. Panels with ghosting issues will not shipped be to customers.'

    Believe me, It does suck having gone through this entire RMA process first hand for this stupid display problem. The one thing I don't regret though is my decision to buy from Malibal. They don't make the display, they just install them into their laptops. It's good to know they are now checking the display so what happened to me doesn't happen again. Besides the red ghosting, the display does look absolutely AMAZING! =P

    I just want to note that I'm not trying to be a fanboy for Malibal. For me, it was hard doing research on laptops. The Clevo models had such great spec's, but I had never heard of the company's that sold them. I was the person who always went with the brands I could find in stores, such as ASUS or Gateway. Wherever you buy your computer from, Malibal, XoticPC, or straight from Sager, I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed :)

    If you have any questions about the Lotus P151HM1 and want some feedback from someone who owns one, just post back, I'll be happy to answer them if I can. :)

    What percent of the screens are defective?

    Is it prevalent in the shipments you've received?

    Thanks for the assurance Brian. I have no concerns about Malibal, I just don't want to be of the unlucky few.

    But with their reassurance that they are doing further testing to combat these issues, I feel very comfortable with choosing them.

    Thanks Again

    I feel quite betrayed that the normal QC process didn't catch this.

    The ghosting has been seen on laptops shipped in May.

    I've got the ghosting issue on my 5165 as well ... It shipped in early August ... now i'm stuck paying shipping to have it RMA'd ... sucks. A $1000 laptop is now costing me $1500 ... sucks.

    Why do you have to pay for the RMA? Isn't this covered as a warranty issue?
