But I'm not joking, it was like night and day from when he first received it. Have anyone here noticed it getting better over time?
Welp, just did a comparison to the Dec rev and the blacklighting on the older model is completely even now and looks completely different than how it did when it first came outta the box. Maybe they do need some time to break in as Nick observed. Gonna give it a week or so and if it doesn't get any better, I may just keep the older one and say screw it. Tired of fooling with 'em...

O btw, I took some pics earlier but they were very inaccurate in showing the slight blk/wht contrast on the monitors so it wouldn't of done any good to post 'em, plus they kept coming out blurry.

Rip, after a few days of use, has yours gotten any better or worse? Just curious.
