Sony FS series has an X-Bright display, and the Z70V does not use an X-Bright equivalent display. A friend of mine has a brand new Sony FS series, and actually we set our laptops next to each other and we were in awe. Both are beautiful machines. Honestly, the Sony had a brighter display when I put solid white on both of them. It's also has significant glare (which is marketed as a positive feature, right?). If you put the computers together, you will probably say the Sony has a better screen. However, that doesn't make the Z70V display bad. It's actually quite good. As I mentioned in my review, it's brighter and just as sharp than the HP ZV5000 series display I had. 'Hope that helps somewhat.
