Okay my two cents.....
IDid the multitude of posts about "blotchiness" worry me as I waited for my 8890 to arrive? Of course.
Was there blotchiness in the "bliss" background and in the default IE tool bar upon arrival? Sure was.
HOWEVER! I considered this to be a problem inherent within this background and toolbar color theme which affects ALL LCD screens.
Why? Because as it was said above.... and I have seen it in every other LCD screen I have ever looked at.
As soon as I changed to a new desktop theme and background...problem was gone. I have run every screen test on this baby I own and not a single problem has come about since then.
Ghosting? Aint seeing it....
Gaming? Great and only getting better...
UXGA? SXGA? Get whatever floats your boat and be happy!
And if you arent smart enough to toss out that horrid "bliss" background as soon as you turn the computer on for the first time...then you arent smart enough to own ANY Sager (UXGA or SXGA) anyway!
The Syncmaster 191T LCD here at work doesn't have it, neither does my 23" Planar LCD at home. If you switch to 16bit color on both of them, then yes, it does show as blotchy.
What about the IE toolbar, is that suffering from JPG compression as well? No, it's supposed to be a smooth color gradient, and on most LCD's, it is.
