Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
After backing up my data and restoring the computer to the factory default settings THE BRIGHTNESS CONTROL WILL STILL NOT MOVE ABOVE ONE BAR.

I’m very annoyed that the maker of this laptop have had me jump through hoops and try a multitude of actions for what is blatantly a hardware issue.

End of story, I just want to be able to see my computer screen. The screen is currently so dark and text is so hard to read that I no longer enjoy using this laptop at all.

Can you explain to me how you intend to fix this problem with my laptop? Or will you ask me to perform another hand stand?
