X220 still suffers "Backlight Bleed" ?? How about the X230 ??

2012-06-10, 22:23 PM

I have sent mine in for repair. It was leaking light from atleast 6 places on the bottom. It also recently had a white dot (not pixels, more like bleed) appear on the right side of the screen.

 

 Any chance they will actually do something ? I am hearing that they just ship them back without even fixing anything. 

 

Also, what is with all the "this is normal, its just you"....

 

The ipad 2 had the same backlight bleed issue and it was LG's fault. 

 

Anyone who had the issue was able to get as many exchanges from an apple store until the problem was fixed. 

 

Now I pad $1000 for this laptop, MUCH MORE than an iPad 2. Not to mention it has a LOWER RESOLUTION.

 

This light bleeding issue is unacceptable. Excuses are also unacceptable. 

 

So someone please answer. Has Lenovo fixed this light bleed issue ???

you are comparing an iPad with a laptop?

The newer revision LCD do have less backlight bleed, but it is still present, even on the X230 to a certain degree.

 Yes it does. The quality is a joke.

White dots / blotchly spots have become a normal feature of modern laptop screens. I don't know anyone with a screen over a year old that doesn't have one or more of these, regardless of vendor. However, Lenovo has a decent track record of fixing them as long as you have the accidental damage protection. Without the adp, its possible it'll be classified as "user damage" or some such thing, and then you have to deal with that hassle to have it replaced.
