Lenovo X270 screen is dark on the sides

2019-01-21, 23:13 PM

Hi all,


I have recently purchased a Lenovo X270 with the 1080p IPS display. I like the display however, I have noticed that both the left and the right edges of the screen seem visably darker. My previous X220 did not suffer from this issue so i'm wondering if this is a model centric fault, or have I been unlucky and recieved a poor display? 


One other observation was that the display should appear to be brighter than my X220 as the 220 was rated at 200 nits and the X270 is rated at 300 nits, however both seem to be as bright as each other. Maybe I was lucky with my X220? Both are bright but its the banding issue that's concerning me.


Any advice appreciated.
