Yoga 710 Backlight Bleed, Acceptable?

I just purchased a yoga 710 11.6" model and the first one had a good amount of backlight bleed coming through on three corners. Enough that I went in for an exchange. My second unit looks much better but still has a bit of bleeding in the lower left corner. Not really visible in normal tasks, but I notice it on boot up and any dark images/videos especially when viewed in a dark room. Of course it lessens with brightness, but is still there.  Is this acceptable or should I have it exchanged/replaced? I'd hate to do an exchange and get an even worse unit in return. This one isn't thaaaat bad, but I still notice it. The image is also a bit exaggerated from the camera and doesn't look as bad in person. Opinions?

Hi PWVR4,

 

Welcome to the community,

 

This is not light bleed as such, this is IPS GLOW. It is normally and down to the nature of the technology used.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

Re: Yoga 710 Backlight Bleed, Acceptable?

Im pretty sure it's not glow. It doesn't change with viewing angle and when I pressed on the bezel it darkens. It's so slight compared to others I have seen though but kinda of annoys me lol. I am sending it in to service to see if they can get it any better. I can live with it as is but if there is a chance of making it better, why not lol. I'll post once Lenovo gets their hands on i.
