It sucked, as it was an otherwise ok unit. There was just this ever present bright white mini spotlight..
Maybe that's not what he's referring to, but it happened with one of mine..
Was it the second one from the right? On my first one, I had something the shape of a triangle where the lightguides crisscrossed above that one, so way above the regular lightcones to where it interfered with text. I have seen that same exact light spot on some replacements, but not as bad=bright.
