P70 4K screen as grainy as the P50 4K?

We all know that the 4K monitor for the P70 is much better than the one in the P50, but how grainy is it? Don't mind matte screens, and in some cases prefer them, but I really don't like when they are too grainy. Is the P70 better in this regard?

Not grainy to my eyes, but I don't have a P50 with which to compare.

Thanks. How do you feel about the PWM issue that seem to affect all ThinkpPads these days?

IMO people are way too concerned over too little things.

Sure, if one has particular sensitivity about PWM, and it does cause discomfort in a blind test (so no placebo effect), that's a concern. Most people don't have any problems with this. Most people even can watch 24fps video sources on TVs/monitors that don't have 3:2 pulldown working correctly, and still enjoy them! Smiley Happy

When work is to be done, and one to spend hours and hours every day staring at the screen, there is simply no replacement for an external monitor(s). It can be both much larger and much higher quality if desired, and the most importantly - can be positioned vertically, and not attached to keyboard at the most bizarre point.

For the dire on-the-go situations, P70 screen is fairly good, at least my copy is. Matte. Reasonably uniform. No noticeable backlight bleed.

PWM is tricky as it is hard to decide how affected you might be by it since even if you dont notice it, it might cause eye strain and fatigue in the long run. That said, you are probably right about being to nitpicky but after having seen the 4K screen on the P50, which is REALLY BAD, you tend to be with Lenovo panels.
