MiniLED Vignetting - ROG Zephyrus M16 - GU604VZ (4080)

Level 7

Hi! I purchased the M16 (2023) couple of months ago. Noticed slight dimming of the screen along all 4 edges of the screen (vignetting of sorts). Clearly identifiable moving cursor from center of screen to edges and the dimming becomes obvious (especially on all-white windows. Is this common? Does anyone with this model and screen see the same issue or is your screen uniformly lit edge to edge? I'm afraid it's going to get worse as time passes.

If this is not common for Asus's miniLEDs then I shall contact ASUS tech support for a resolution.

Thanks in advance. See photo below and the dimming along the entire screen edge.

Hi Anbby,

Thanks for the input and I realize that the image isn't the best but there is a clear dimming of approximately 3cm thickness along the screen edges. Visibly dimmer than the rest of the screen. I will have to bring it in.
