It's gotta be more than just having the Samsumg screen - mine is pristine, with NO "rippling" at all - not with movement, pressure, twisting - nothing.
I'd love to be able to do a side-by-side comparison of someone's 8204 with the QDI screen next to mine, because I couldn't be happier with mine (and I'm pretty demanding about my laptop screens!) Even if Acer would come up with an offer to "upgrade" to another screen, I'd be reluctant to try it - my screen is crisp and bright, with even lighting, no "light leak," and not a single stuck/dead pixel. <knocks on wood>
