    Hi all,

    recently I bought 3 switches and I must return 2 of them. I want to choose switch with the best screen but to be honest I completely don't know which one I should leave. About switches: all of them are Neon Blue & Red; no bundle; bought in Europe.

    Switch no. 1: serial number: XAJ400094; FW: 1.0.0
    Switch no. 2: serial number: XAJ700098; FW: 2.3.0
    Switch no. 3: serial number: XAJ700082; FW: 2.1.0

    Personally I would choose the switch with number 2 because its screen is the whitest BUT I concern about two things with this screen. The first thing is when you look from an angle on the screen then you can see that it changes colour to the more bluish. The second thing which you can't see in attachments is when I turn on switch no. 2 and nintendo and switch logo appear at startup screen then I can see that there is some clouding - maybe it's a too big word but upper-right corner seems to be a little bit lighter than other parts of the screen.

    Could you help and tell me which one would you left? Should I pay attention on something else apart the screen?

    Cheers! 20170831_212857_HDR.jpg 20170831_212905_HDR.jpg 20170831_212916_HDR.jpg 20170831_212928_HDR.jpg 20170831_212941_HDR.jpg

    OCD.

    Anyway, took the one you like the most.
    I prefer whitish/blueish tones, personally I would go for #2.

    Calm down fellow - I don't want you to get a heart attack. First of all it's not your business why I have these 3 consoles. Second thing is that this is the law in Poland - you can test the thing you've bought from an internet within 14 days - of course test in reasonable way. If you think that turning on console to check for dead pixel is overstatement then I would say that you are a little bit an idiot gently speaking. If you have a problem with return policy in Poland then please consider contact with Polish government. Otherwise deal with that. EOT.

    The screens should be identical, just that newer firmwares changed the colour profile.

    You think so? I definitely don't want to check that and update firmwares because I want to return consoles in exactly the same condition as I got them. But that's interesting and I haven't heard about that - I thought that it's a hardware thing.

    warmer screens are more close to the rec 709 calibration.
    so 3 for me, 1 is way too yellowish.
    2 is too blue for me.

    my switch screen looks just fine.

    The clouding lighter effect that you refers is called "Screen bleeding" and is only noticeable when the screen is all black, this is due to the backlight leaking through the lcd panel or the edge of the screen.

    So you think buying 3 Switches to get the "best" screen is reasonably testing? This law is to protect buyer from fraud, not that someone can compare three products, get the marginal "best" one and send the rest back. This makes me sick, sorry dude.

    No question ask, the screen in /2 is by far the best one. Just compared mine, it's like /2, thank god there is no yellow shit-stained on my screen.

    Lol... you know that the viewangle of the screen of the switch is not that great... SO your pictures are not able to tell the difference.

    Switch #3. 1 is too yellow and 2 has a lot of blue (and blue light for those trying to reduce exposure to it for health reasons). 3 looks nice and has a nice warm white look so I would choose 3.

    From a blue light exposure view, 1 would be optimal for less exposure and would be best for lots of gaming in the dark but 3 would still work good for gaming in the dark. 2 is not even an option for night gaming but would be ok when playing with lots of ambient light.
