The screen itself is beautiful. Vibrant and the colors are very vivid. No dead or stuck pixels.
I'm having to get used to the resolution, it's really high so webpage text is very small. I've reset the font size deal so it shows text larger if the page is coded correctly.
I have yet to mess with the settings. It's a little bright but that's easily adjustable. There is a Fn + F8 or F7 to adjust the brightness in steps quickly. That way you can adjust it in game without having to go into menus.
I did take it with me when I drove my wife to a doctor's appointment and tried to use it in the car. It's kind of big to use between myself and the steering wheel while parked, and the glossy screen isn't good outdoors. All the light reflections made it hard to see.
It's a trade off though, it looks spectacular in the right surroundings, it'll just be difficult to use outside. I don't tend to do that though. While sitting on my deck I'll be under trees and in the shade though, so it's not a problem for my intended uses.
