2023 Blade 16 Mini-LED

This has been posted before but I feel like it needs to be overstated.

PLEASE make a toggle-able option to disable local-dimming for single-zone brightness.

its the best… and worst feature of this laptop.

websites with large sections of dark and white content look weird when scrolling. White surrounded by black is dimmed if small enough. I can’t see how anyone is going to use this for photo, film, graphic or other professional work outside of connecting an external display.

other Mini-LED laptops have this option. I managed to get a massive deal on this laptop.

i had the 4080 version and loved it but sprung for this one. Now I can’t go back because the model I bought is no longer open box. I almost liked that one better. It ran cooler, could be used for work. 1440p 240hz. What do I do? Go full Blade 18” and get the 4090 and the non-local-dimmed display?

the 4090 version is perfect. I love the 1080/240hz modes. 4k is beautiful. But the local dimming always on? Achilles heel.

If you have a test bios or something please send it to me. Display firmware, panel hotfix 2.0 anything I’m willing to try it.

I would ALWAYS use local dimming for movies and games. I would NEVER use it while browsing the web or doing specific work.

Don’t warry mate im launchning a class action against them due to this exact problem with the display and the single Zone they have not yet implemented..  If you would like to join PM and I will set it up.

That’s OK! I wish you luck though.

I was within the return period and ended up buying a 2023 Asus ROG Strix Scar 16 (4090). It’s QHD+ and mini LED but it does have single zone toggle. It’s an incredible difference.

its a thicker laptop and I don’t think the speakers are quite as good but for what I need, it’ll work just fine! I upgraded it to 64gb at 5200 speed and it supports dual-sided nvme (4tb) vs blade 16 at single sided only (2TB per slot).

I do hope they implement this feature soon for you. I FB messaged Min directly because he does go through and look at them. Doesn’t respond really but I know the issue has been seen.

again, good luck! I’m probably out of the laptop buying age until at least 2028 lol.

Thanks for the answer, Good luck with the New Asus.
