    I don't have the Bestbuy version so don't have the horizontal lines issue but that asus spledid utility did default to some very weird color option. I uninstalled it and it looked fine after that.

    I sort of regret buying this thing now. It has been nothing but a headache since turning it on.

    Have the same issue from the BB version. Will test it with an external display today and see. Very disappointing as other than this issue the machine has been great.

    I, too, uninstalled the Splendid utility. The weird color change went away and I think the horizontal lines are gone, too. Black appears smooth black now on my machine. This is a G750JW-DB71.

    Tried with an external LCD and the issue does not occur at all on it. It only happens on the built in screen and usually just in dark areas, parts where shadows are visible.

    It was happening before in other areas as well (windows 8 login screen) but that went away by removing the Splendid Utility program as others have reported.

    Seems the Best Buy isnt all that Best buy anyway.
    From all I've heard and read so far, only BB models have this flaw, not other models.
    Seems theres a fairly good reason for the lower price.
    I've once been told - "You get what you pay for", looks like it aint worth saving a few bucks unless willing to get the flaws also..

    I fixed it... https://www.asus.com/support/Download/3/521/G750JW/36/
    Your going to need the latest VGA driver plus get rid of "splendid".
    Now it runs much nicer plus i got my screen up to 70hz looks quite a bit smoother.

    That is all

    Well the ram on it is garbage its 8gb of 800mhz and the 5400rpm hard disk isn't exactly gaming quality. Other than that its the same thing if i could have got the JH I would have but no one has it so i got this POS. Its not the best buy model that sucks its the jw as a whole.

    Take the gpu into account it has a lousy 128bit interface that is a FAIL. If you look up recommended screen rez for that bandwidth its like 720p. Even 192bit isn't good for 1080p. It was a dumb move but hey i guess even asus makes mistakes. Razer uses this gpu on there laptop and they flat out said we had to use a lower resolution 1600x900 screen for better frames.

    Dear All,

    Very sorry you've been having problems. Our RD and product managers are looking into it and at the very least there is a new version of Splendid in the works. For now though, uninstall it and it may fix it for some of you.

    FYI: The upcoming JW and JH LCDs are different from the JX here.

    (FYI about Best Buy: they will always create the spec that suits their business model, which is separate from every other 'more specialist' retailer we work with.)
