I feel that it has some kind of anti glare film because white colors don't seem so crisp and if you look closely it's like there is a sticker and the screen seems as if it has an anti glare sticker on it...

I am just afraid to apply force and scratch it so I wanted to make sure with you guys first...

why is the screen so dull for an HD screen????

There are no films or overlays attached to the screen but what you are seeing is typical of a matte finish screen opposed to the glossy screen on the older models.

The trade off of the matte finish opposed to gloss is that it will not show reflections like the glossy screen but it will as you've seen sometimes make the colors seem a little off. I do suggest using a microfiber cloth and some LCD cleaning solution to clean the screen thoroughly as my screen was a bit dirty when I first opened the box and it seemed to help with my screen.

I usually use a 50% isopropyl alcohol 50% deionized water solution applied to a clean microfiber cloth, I'm sure someone will chime in and tell me that this is a bad idea but it hasn't ruined my 46" Samsung TV, work laptop, G75, friends G53, other friends G74 or my G75.

I tried cleaning it but that didn't help...it looks funny when the page is completely white....

doesn't look so smooth as if you had some screen protector on it of bad quality...

I dunno if this is normal of this screen or what

It is indeed normal of this type of screen, higher brightness may help overcome it but it is just what you get when you have a matte screen.

Thank you for confirming this is how the screen is I wasn't in the mood of going back to return this notebook as I love it..

So tell me man, why on earth would ASUS choose to put a Matte screen????

I find its quality to be nothing like HD to be honest

Yup ... normal ... many of us love the matte screen ... you have to know what you are buying ... get something else if what you want is a glossy screen!

why would ASUS stop including the 2 year warranty? Why would asus include a faulty subwoofer and speakers quieter than a mouse? Why a matte screen? Why not include O/S Discs?

Because companies only get worse as they get bigger.

:(

I noticed this too and assumed it just has some goo from the screen protector that had used. haven't been able to find a microfiber cloth as one was NOT INCLUDED in the box, opposed most electronics these days.

Very sad not to include one when you buy a cheap mobile phone these days you got one...

I cleaned it with the MacBook Pro cleaning cloth which is a piece of cloth made with the best quality

I know there's 1 year difference from your post,but just saw it, when I got mine, a small microfiber fiber was included.. By the way, when you clean your screen just breathe over the screen and use that moisture to clean it with the microfiber!

the problem is, that it is not a high-quality matte-finishing of the display.
i would like to see a semi-matte display in the next G7X...

I've got micro fiber cloth with ASUS. Difference between a matte and a glosy screen is in contrast, not colors or color consistency. Remember this to show colors on a matte screen you actually need better LED backlighting. So matte screens are usually better than glosy ( 90 % of PRO monitors have matte screens). So ASUS to achieve any decent look to its matte screen had to put bit better backlighting in it (and if you meassure it it above laptop average i think it was 270 cdi ) Point is your screen is fine,you'll get used to it. And if you take your G outisde you'll se the difference. PS- HD means 720 p resolution, 1080 p means full HD. It doesn't have to do anything with glossy and matte.

My main concern is if i I am looking at let's say, a fully white page like Notepad or MS Word, if I look closely, I can see like little small tiny dots of rainbowish kinda colors

I expected that an HD screen would be close to looking at reality, this screen is close to looking at garbage IMO

The quality of the 60Hz panels in the G75vw/vx made me get a refund. Except for brightness and contrast level, the panel is garbage.

@Walkir if you exclude brightness and contrast you are left with response and color consistency/coverage. I'm not sure what is response ( but usually TN panels have good response compared to an IPS panel (thought there are some IPS panels with better response). Color consistency/coverage is crap on all TN panels (actually on 120 hz is even worse). So what's the catch? TN panels are better for gaming. Why? because response time is important for gaming(it reduces blur in games because the pictures appears quicker.) So what is wrong with G series TN panel? Nothing it's a GAMING NOTEBOOK. So ASUS did a good job actually. If you are searching for an IPS panel on laptop,you might as well forget about gaming laptop because you can found them on some ultrabooks, workstation laptops (with qudaro GPU ) and yes I believe on a MacBook Pro (with retina display)... I use an external monitor (I'm a graphic designer) and I bought my G for the power and cooling system, I knew that the display will not be sutiable for any work. For gaming works fine.
@Fire You have supervision! :)This is also the TN panel problem (less deeper blacks, and bad whites)

I guess it wasn't fair to compare it to my 21.5" iMac IPS screen. I would have kept the G75vx if it didn't have the faint lines issues due to dithering of the Chi Mei panel. Together with clouding and low white to black refresh (ghosting), I just couldn't keep it.

I read a few review before buying and they all pointed at the G75vx having a AUO panel instead of Chi Mei. But I ended up with a Chi Mei CMO1720 in my machine.

that's right you can't compare an IPS panel to an TN panel. iMac have a rather bad IPS panel though people tend to think it's amazing due to its over brightness and over glossiness...It looks nice maybe but in fact when it comes to color reproduction it is not just as good. But I see how you feel any IPS panel looks million times better then a TN panel. Imagine difference between my color calibrated DELL Ultrasharp and G75's TN. Miles and miles away...but I have no trouble looking at my external screen wile the G beast is under my fingertips.

(Edit: This is for G55)

To me, I absolutely needed matte, because I get a lot of eye strain and issues looking at glossy screens at work (fluoro lights) and at home where it is quite sunny.

Having used glossy Macs for the past 5 years, my goodness I'm glad it is Matte.

It is a personal preference though, so if you're not happy, get glossy or something that you are more happy with.

Overall, it reduces eye strain for me. Glare is not healthy in many cases.

I used Datacolor Spyder4Pro to calibrate the screen. It is a must for any computer I use nowadays, night-and-day difference with colours.

i noticed there is a matte-type screen protector in the market (i had a crystal-clear screen protector between the panel and me), can it be of help by putting that on your screen?
