I am not sure if this problem is related to previous problem I've reported, so I'm just opening a new thread.
I've noticed that there is a general problem with grey colors display on my machine.
For example, when I scroll my start screen, which has desktop icons with grey background, when the animation stops the greys 'flicker' for a second (change between different shades of grey) before settling on the final colors.
I tried to make a movie showing this, but the effect is quite subtle so it doesn't quite show on camera.
Additionally, there is a banding problem with grey gradients - they are not smooth and the borders between different shades of grey can be seen. Again, I couldn't take good picture of this effect.
I've noticed both problems on the Windows metro UI and the xbox music app. I tried to reproduce them using desktop MS Word by drawing a rectangle with grey gradient fill and moving it around, but the gradient seems smooth and the animation is fine.

I get the same issue. As I posted in other threads, I have tried both an i7 and an i5 model of the helix.. Where I notice this issue the most is in the URL bar for IE 10. When I click refresh or press 'enter', I will sometimes see this flicker in the entire bar.. It looks like a graphical tearing or glitch you would see in a video game when vsync is not properly set. It is definetly isolated to specific parts of the screen. I never saw anything like this on my x220, or my wife's T420/W520 models.

Got the Flickering too. Its concernig the colours grey, green und sometimes blue. Desactivating the 50Hz mode on battery helped somewhat but the flickering is still extremely annoying!
