Lenovo Y700 IPS Bleed/backlight glare

Hello, everyone!


I just received my new Lenovo Y700, and overall, I love it!
But there is a thing that's bugging me: backlight bleed/ips glare.


While working on the laptop, or even watching movies (watched Star Trek Beyond), it doesn't seem to bother me, I don't really notice it. But if if there is a full black screen and i stare at it, yeah. I can see the darn bleed.


Is this much bleed normal? Should I return it and get another one (hopefully I will be more lucky)? Or do ALL of the IPS panels out there have such issues, and i better stick with this one?


I am attaching screenshots taken in full darkness, at 100% brightness. (N.B., in reality it doesn't look SO bad as on camera, idk why; also, if i set it to 75% brightness its A LOT less visible).


One more thing: Can any of you that have this model attach some pictures under the same conditions, so I can at least compare? 


Thanks a million!

Re: Lenovo Y700 IPS Bleed/backlight glare

Hi MirceaCaraiman , 




There are certain acceptable LCD OEM standards but looking at the image you shared , seems the top and left corner may not and best action plan here is to notify technical support and have their recommendation .


I would leave fellow members for comparison on their models but if this is something that would bother users specially for media graphic works then the concern should not be neglected (specially on the second image). 


Update us how things go best for you.
