hi there, My SP2'sscreen is uneven in brightness or illumination. That is, edge to edge, the illumination is uneven. The top long edge (adjacent to front camera) of about 1cm is about 15% to 20% dimmer than the rest of the screen. The bottom long edge (next to Windows key) is slightly dimmer. Both short edges are bright edge to edge. -- Anyone else have this issue? (to test, open the NY Times in IE metro-- open any article and hold as portrait. Look at the top long edge (camera side). It might be dimmer down the 1cm edge. -- does this bother you? -- is this fixable by firmware, or likely baked into the units? Now, at my local Microsoft store, each Surface display unit I've inspected has the same characteristic to one degree or another. None of the Dell Venue 11 Pros have this (they are all edge to edge bright), my Nexus 7 and Lumia 920 are edge to edge bright. Dell Venue 8 Pro looks great, too. I guess I expect a $1000 tablet to be edge to edge bright. As a pro photographer this is annoying as heck. and embarrassing, as I think some client will notice this some day.
