Level 24 is way too bright to comfortably read in this room.
But I'm not seeing the blotchiness all over the screen like I did with my defective PW. There is some shadow/light variations, but they are not that bad. My screen looks much like most of the photos I've seen from good units. It does NOT look as white and clean as the marketing photos, but I wouldn't expect it too!
Thanks for the information. It sounds like your screen is essentially the same as mine.
