Is this backlight bleeding for a new laptop (HP envy 13t d000, worth $900) acceptable: http://imgur.com/a/WV9C2

Since this laptop is new, I can exchange it. But I wanted to ask if this is good. Thanks for any help.

Regards.
 
Not at all @rainbowten. Backlight bleed should be RMA'd, always. Manufacturers are greedy. They don't care about the consumer line, they care about their pro line of displays. Bleed is absolutely not exatterated, it's a matter of how much you're willing to take before going insane. Exatteration has absolutely nothing to do with this, at all. I've used most monitors on the market, and I've tested a lot of TV's. I know for a fact that 1/4 1/5 cost TV's, bigger screens, still have less consistency issues than smaller PC displays.

I am sorry. I am unable to understand your question. Are you asking something about my camera. I used my phone to take the shot. Laptop is around 15 days old.

It would be great if you could explain your question. I am a novice.

Thanks again.

Was the computer on when took the photo?

Like, what part of the cycle was it at?

Yes. Computer was completely on. I put a black image to full screen. Brightness was around 50%.

Thank you so much for your help.
Here is 10% brightness look: http://imgur.com/Y9EmXlf
And, here is 100% brightness: http://imgur.com/275ez6i

Backlight bleeding with 100% brightness doesn't look very good. Though, I should say that my camera exaggerates the bleeding effect.

I would say that in pictures, bleeding is exaggerated by around 20%. But still pretty good backlight bleeding. I think, I will go for RMA to be on the safer side.

Thank you so much for your help.

Hi!

Did you do the RMA thing? I'm having the same issue. Did you get a new one without the bleeding?

Thanks.

Totally agree, makes no sense to not review it right there and come back with the same issue. If they refuse to do it, I will return it to them. I't is a shame i have to erase all and reconfigure it again :S
 
I have them cut open the boxes, no issues for me. Though some may have a problem with that, but it's technically still considered new, so they won't have to lower price and sell it used. A piece of tape isn't the end of the world. Hopefully it all works out for you.

Yes. I did the RMA thing. However, new one also has considerable amount of backlight bleeding. I was tired of returning and waiting, so I kept the new one.
