Clevo’s M980NU is a rather large notebook PC sporting a 18.4″ LCD. The LCD features a 1920 x 1080 pixel format. You will know when this beast is powered on because there are blue LEDs everywhere! Notebook Check took a preproduction model for a ride and checked the massive 18.4″ LCD. The LCD showed a decent brightness of 220 cd/m2 in the middle but they did mention that light fall-off toward the edges were a bit pronounced with the upper right corner registering a brightness of just 164.1 cd/m2 and the upper left just 163.7 cd/m2. Contrast ratio was a very good 595:1. Color fidelity was very good and was measured by a Spyder 3 tool. The color gamut was a bit higher than regular LCD panels geared for notebook PCs but a little less than RGB LED backlit-LCDs. Very good news indeed for gamers who want their colors to be excellent!
