Man ordering one of these displays... it's like Russian roulette. Finding a perfect one is damn near impossible... finding one you can live with might just end up being difficult.
My 2001FP has perfect backlight uniformity. A little leakage I can deal with... But some of the descriptions I've seen online - well it isn't pretty. Hope I have better luck than they did but I'm not holding my breath there.
I ordered via the web. I guess people that got theirs shipped same day were just lucky to have ordered at the perfect time.
