Possible to get a perfect VivoBook?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, in short, I have purchased a X202E VivoBook from Best Buy. I have gotten an exchange 4 TIMES in the past 2 days. Why?

Well, the first one I purchased had a white dot-like item stuck between the two screens.

The second one had a scratch in-between the screens and several dead pixels

The third one had air bubbles between the two screens and dead pixels.


NOW my forth one has a scratch between the two screens -.-


Does anyone else have a vivobook that's ran into similar issues? I am a perfectionist, borderline OCD but I am afraid of getting put on a list for swapping laptops constantly. It's embarrassing, because I am there daily. It's also annoying to spend all the gas money to go to my Best Buy lol

I don't get it. What do you mean "two screens"?

the glass touch screen and the actual display screen. They're fused together. Essentially there's a screen behind the glass-part of the screen.

Well, I think I have decided I am done with this VivoBook BS.

I took my last one in to get a replacement, and the replacement has

#1. Scratches ALL over the aluminum lid. They're quiet LARGE.

#2. MORE scratches between the screens.
