Model: Asus Q550LF

My laptop is set on High Performance with maximum brightness. For some reason the screen just does not seem all that bright... I seem to typically have this issue with the more modern laptops I've handled. Anyone know what's up?
EDIT: I might have just seen it adjust automatically...perhaps adaptive brightness causing this?

There is no adaptive brightness in Advanced Power Settings.
