Does your new Surface Pro have light bleed problems?
If you watch the Surface space anywhere near as closely as we do at Windows Central, you've likely read reports about some potential "light bleed" issues with the new Surface Pro.
Depending on your source of information, you might believe this is a catastrophe of cataclysmic proportions that affects each and every Surface Pro Microsoft shipped. Or you may think it's just, well, par for the course.
What is light bleed? Our Executive Editor Daniel Rubino tackled the Surface Pro light bleed reports yesterday and summed it up thusly:
In general, light bleed results in a less-than-ideal amount of light "leaking" through random parts of the display, so that the light looks uneven. And it's fairly common.
But how big of an issue is it really? And how many Surface Pro users are experiencing problems? Windows Central forums member Stevie04 created a thread on this very subject asks:
I've been using my new Surface Pro for about a month, and I never once thought about light bleed. But I also wasn't looking for it. And I still haven't gone hunting for an issue that I don't have, just for the sake of finding one. But that's just me.
Do you have a new Surface Pro that's experiencing significant light bleed? Do you plan to return it in hopes of getting a device with less of an issue? Even if you don't own a Surface Pro but have experience with light bleed on other devices, is it really a big deal? We want to hear from you, so jump on over to our forums and sound off.
