Sorry if this has already been asked but I did a search and couldn't see anything...

Can any one else see faint vertical bars on the display?

I can see it worse on dark colors.

Is this normal?

You have to look for it to see it but now I've noticed it I see it all the time...

Any one else that can see it.

I've wondered this myself a few times, but I've also done a ton of acid in my lifetime and am willing to chalk it up to brain failure.

Yes! I have the same exact problem! It almost looks like faint pinstripes right? And they go away on a mostly bright screen right?

Re: Vertical bars on screen

The silver dots shouldn't interfere, they are best seen when the screen is off at somewhat of an angle to direct light.
