The screen is nice, but that ZOMG G4M3R keyboard deck is still rather hideous. I don't even like the logo that's on the deck of the Omen 16 I'm using right now.

I would stay away from this laptop. The backlight bleed is really bad. It also has bad Coil whine.

The one he has does not have backlight bleed as his is a Mini-Led screen. 

 

The models that are sold here in the US has light bleed and I agree 100%.

The screen is 18" 250hz, I believe it's QHD too. I do not know the model number.

Sounds like the same panel used in the Helios 18, which was made by AUO. Does Armory Crate allow disabling FALD (single/multi zone) on this panel as they do with the 16 inch variant?

I actually don’t know. My friend already left back home.

yeah i doubt this is a miniled model.

i remember searching for what laptops they sell in miniled and just checked again multiple regions and still listed as nebula hdr only

mainly limited to the scar 16 and the zephyrus duo 16 for gaming

 

it is a nice 500 nits peak brightness 100% dci-p3 display 240hz

but if you see the mini led they do on the those models the 1100 nits peak brightness and blacks are night and day

 

nothing beats opening a a website like this one and flashbanging yourself

I can assure you that it was a mini-led screen. Here is another picture that I took.

with a high screen size and brightness you would be hard pressed to tell unless in truely bright content also the photos you take dont really translate well

especially considering someones cranked the brightness/contrast of that stock image used as a wallpaper ontop of camera compensation

 

heres my laptop at full brightness 1000 nits

and also at 30% about 400 nits

fyi the 2nd was 1000 nits with some nice glare in top left thanks to sun blasting

You can tell the difference , a lot. Look at how much rich the color and details on my picture. 

 

Edited: The picture was taken with a camera phone. That is just the wallpeper from microsoft. Nothing manipulated.

your argument makes no sense about colours looking richers etc

 

 

the pictures i just took where from my asus zephyrus  duo 2023

its a literal laptop with a mini - led display

 

so if your argument that your assumed mini led display looks richer than my pictures of a a laptop with a 100% mini led display you really dont know what your looking at

 

also looking richer can come down to anything which is why i said the image used in his wallpaper looks like the colours are cranked and the contrast

which i said before

perceived quality is skewed when you have an image with contrast and saturation cranked

 

since the original image i used for the wallpaper on my example there is less saturation and more depth overall

Bro, did you not read the message. It's a stock floating wallpaper from Microsoft that changes every few minutes, you can't crank the contrast or saturation. You can adjust brightness. 

 

I know it's hard for you to believe because you read specs from the manual and it does not say the G18 comes with a Mini-Led. He could have modify or upgrade it himself.

 

But anyway, I rest my case lol. You can believe what you want. I know what I saw in person.

"he could have modified or upgraded it himself"
"my friend from overseas"

"i cant get a model number"

 

Literally has no info

meanwhile asus specifically dont sell an 18 inch Mini-led and if they did it wouldnt be in the G18 their budget model

it would be in the Scar 18 which is their flagship

but alas they only sell Flagship 16 inch models with the mini led display, specifically the ZephyrusM16, Zephyrus Duo 16 and the Strix SCAR 16

 

but yeah "i know what i saw"

 

GL HF think you need to fix that eyesight mate

when its mini led or oled you can nearly instantly tell due to the inky blacks or contrast. I don't see in the pictures how its misinterpreted. but yeah interesting laptop for sure. I just got a vivobook oled and having an oled display in a game changer, I personally wont buy anything non oled now. the gains visually are just that big
