Sorry for the late reply. Mainly lightbleed, but also connectivity issues with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, andSo, why are you on your third Surface Pro? Because of the light bleed? Or did you have different issues?
Mine is completely uniform from the bottom, about 2cm up... really noticed it on a presentation I was watching on a training course the other week!Was wondering: anyone experiencing light bleed, is this only on the edges? Or is it in the middle of the screen as well?
I have two areas on my screen that seem slightly brighter than the rest. One is a square of 1x1 mm and then there is a more rounded area of about 5mm x 2cm. Showed it to my wife as well and asked her: "Do you see this too or is it typically mee, to see it?" She answered:"No, it's there and I see it too. However, to make an issue out of it is typically you"
It's the sort of stuff: Once you see it, it cannot be unseen
I am currently going for the third one… because of light bleed issues. It is not the sort of light bleed you mention. I just have spots in the screen that light up a little bit brighter than the rest. And overtime it gets worse and more spots appear. It is very hard to see, but as soon as you see it it cannot be unseen Especially for a device this expensive it shouldn't happen!I've wanted a SP5 for over a year now. I went through 9 models in 2017 and, exasperated, bought a Macbook Pro in the end. The reason? ALL the SP5 models had that hideous line of lightbleed at the bottom.
I ended up selling the Macbook as, I didn't like that, either - I prefer Windows 10 over MacOS (and that's coming from someone who worked on MacOS from 2012 - early 2017) and the MBP wasn't silent or that easyto handle at all.
I tried again last week in a different store with the SP5 - the staff opened up 3 boxes for me, ALL with lightbleed.
Is this just something that I'll have to come to terms with if I want a SP5? Is there anyone that has a model that's perfect?
I'm in the Netherlands myself, all the models were from batch 1796.
