Hmmm, are you sure that isn't exactly the same display as in the Y2P? I haven't heard of anything else having that resolution yet other than the RGBW PenTile technology that the Y2P and others are using.

 

Not sure your yellows would be any different there if so.

But yes that laptop uses an entirely different and far more advanced display panel than the Y2P, it is an IGZO panel that is 80~90% more power efficient than the ones currently found in approx 90% of LCDs. Also, the UH90 and Y2P are completely different machines in terms of its respective target market.

 


Ok, well I did some searches and IZGO seems to be an orthagonal technology choice to the color filter array, and I see Sharp are making RGBW displays, so whether the display in the UH90 is RGB stripe or RGBW is still not entirely clear.

 

Even if it is RGBW, they might have done it better than Samsung...

Re: Yoga 2 Pro 13 Yellow Color Issues

I realized that my replacement order would not ship until mid-Jan and have thus cancelled everything. It doesn't sound too promising anyways.

 

I rely upon solid colors a lot in my work -- powerpoint presentation, look up tables for fluorescence microscopy, etc. It'd really be very inconvenient if what I see on the Y2P is going to be very different from other screens.

 

Besides the yellow issue, I also noticed that black texts are indeed super crisp however texts in some other colors may have some more jagged edge. I've adjusted Cleartype text many many times however the result is the same. I suppose the RGBW layout isn't quite there yet.

 

My first color monitor was a NEC Multisync CRT in late 80's, and I had not seen yellow being rendered like this. I wish Lenovo had chosen a less ambitious and more time tested panel. For example, the QHD panels used in Toshiba Kirabook or the new HP Spectra 13 (very cheap with discount codes, also with a huge touchpad comparable to MBP, BTW). The fact that Yoga 2 Pro offers such a great price/performance ratio and Samsung is now heavily discounting the once unthinkable Ativbook 9 plus (with the same yellow color issues), maybe Samsung is trying to move on to the next generation of these panels. 

 

I went with Y2P mainly for its portability and the QHD screen, which allows me to read textbooks and papers a lot easier. I think I'm getting a Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 for reading/studying and keep using my 2009 MBP for other purposes. 

 

I don't buy that all products are expected to have "defects". Design compromises, yes, which you'd know before you buy an item (you knew, for example, MBP can't bend like Y2P). However I consider the yellow issue to be more than that, and lead to my return of the unit, which is rather unfortunate.

I went by Best Buy today and looked at the Y2P, and the yellow is horible.  I put a Surface 2 Pro next to it, and it was dead on for the yellow.

 

Mfg. date was mid November.

 

Hoping when mine arrives it will not be like this after applying all the fixes.  I edit in Photoshop all day, and this would be a deal breaker.  I like everything else about this little GEM.

 

Keeping my fingers crossed!

Not surprising, since the BIOS fix probably wasn't installed.

 

Was it plugged in and running in high power mode? If so the yellow should have looked fine. Anything else and all bets are off without knowing all the settings, BIOS version, etc.

Yeah, that definitely looks like the fix is not installed, or the machine has deliberately been put in lowest-power mode. Have you looked at the images in this thread:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/Y2P-Colors-Compared-to-reference-monitor/td-p/1339631

 

That show what it can look like with the fix installed and not set to the most extreme low power mode?
