    First, the iMac 27" doesn't cost $2700. You may have paid $2700 coz' of optional upgrades. It starts at $1700 and you can easily knock $100 off from the edu store.

    Also try to compare Apples to apples per se. First, 23" does not equals to 27". Also a 1920 max resolution screen does not equals to 2560.

    No one twisted your arm to pay $2700. If you don't like it, return it and be happy with your 23" Samsung OR ask Samsung to build you a 27" version and see if it has the same color uniformity.

    Your forgetting the fact that the 21.5" imac which smaller than the samsung, and has the same resolution as the samsung is even worse than the 27"

    And don't give me the "It's a new technology thing"

    The only thing ips screens are good for is viewing angle, and that's when the uniformity flaws look even worse!

    Who cares whether you can view your screen at 178 degrees.
    Just give us one that works proper when we sit in front of it...

    Well, the iMac does cost $2700 "COZ" that was how it was configured. A little non uniformity isn't a huge issue for me since I don't look at white screens. However, it is curious that my mid-level Sony Bravia 40" LCD TV connected to the internet via my PS3 displayed perfect color uniformity doing the iMacsqueaked test. My issue was the combination of a screen that was more yellow than the last combined with hard drive failure. So stop the sarcasm. Apple now admits the yellow screens are an issue. My replacement arrives Monday and I'll be quite happy with a decent, if not perfect, display-no dead pixels, and a hardware that works correctly. You are having issues with your own display so why flame what I said?

    21.5" doesn't cost $2700 either. Only $1199, though you can always add on more RAM and say it cost $2700.

    The problem with the person who claimed a $2700 machine shouldn't have such defect and comparing it with a 23" monitor is invalid. It is not a fair comparison for more reasons than one - screen size, screen resolution and one being a computer and the other, just a display.

    Secondly, the 27" iMac cost $1700. Adding more RAM, upgrading processor, hard drive, buying accessories etc. does nothing in terms of display upgrade. Whether you paid $100,000 for an iMac with diamonds or $1700, both still come with the same display.

    Again, let me repeat this again. If you are not happy with your iMac, all you got to do is return it. Stop complaining and whining about the yellow screen and then still keep on exchanging or buying another. You can buy your Samsung screen and your Dell, HP, MSI, Gateway, Sony etc.

    Hellloooo?
    Isn't this what you were talking about?

    "There's no magic cure. Bumping up the temperature will make it less yellow at the bottom at the expense of it being cooler (bluer) at the top. Personally, even when I'm editing photos, my main focus is in the middle to upper portion of the screen. I'm not concern about the yellow on the bottom, though that's not to say it is not important to some folks who edit photos professionally and need the ENTIRE 2560x1440 and demand every single one of the 3686400 pixels to be 100% true.

    Personally, I don't think this update does anything, though through the power of suggestion (as someone already said it looks like it did something), I think my screen is more yellow now than before. Haha."

    Read my post a little more clearly. My inital post that got you all riled up wasn't even in response to your post above! My FEELING is that what was dismissed by Apple is now acknowledged and though I would be surprised with a near perfect display, I'm OK with one with some non uniformity...You are talking about the same thing! I was fairly pleased with my last iMac despite the increased yellow but the hard drive issue sent that baby back after 7 days ownership and was sent back because AppleCare instructed me to do so. This forum is about yellow tinge and that's what you discussed as seen above. So cut the silly flaming. My post was in response to the person with the 24" iMac who claimed everyone had OCD posting here. What concerns me (and I've had three not couting the one that arrived bashed in) was the hardware issues, kernal panics, HD failure. Yes, I believe this display should be more uniform color temperature wise but right now it's a trade off. Now cut the crap attacking what I have said and take out your frustration somewhere else.

    People should start a new discussion because the new and up most wanted iPad is an iLemon pad, just saw a test done to it and guess what its a yellow lemon.

    Not only the iPads, my iPhone 3G has the same yellow tingle at the bottom of the screen. noticeable on greyish backgrounds.

    I did packed it up and brought it to the store within my return period. As a few people have indicated, at the store lighting, I couldn't see the yellow that much. I then make the decision to keep the iMac knowing the lower portion of the screen is a bit yellow.

    The difference bet you and me is, I made the decision and thus move on and not ***** and moan about the issue any longer. However, you come across as someone who keep insisting your machine cost $2700 and must have the perfect screen. You know it is not perfect, but choose not to return it for a refund. Yet, still continue to insist your $2700 spent should result in a perfect machine.

    Question is can you read? My iMac $2700 (actually it was more)was returned for hardware issues and increased yellow screen. The screen alone I could have been OK with (not thrilled but OK with it)...the warnings on my dock, the black screens that would not go away unless I put the Mac to sleep, the kernal panic messages...adding that all up and for a week old iMac, this was not good. OK? Understand? I get my new one tomorrow so wish me luck...decent screen, no dead pixels, perfectly running hardware..not alot to ask for in a computer reaching the $3000 level...I have a feeling that I'll be very pleased.

    Do you think you made the wrong decision in accepting your iMac? I see very few complaints at iMacsqueaked for macs made recently and it looks like the screen issue has been resolved. I'll post an update tomorrow night.

    If you made your decision and moved on as you say, why are you still visiting this thread LOL

    Truthfully, I didn't read much of your post. I got to be honest. I was merely pointing out the fact iMac doesn't cost $2700 and comparing it with any other LCD out there is not an Apple to apple comparison in many ways - screen size, resolution and the fact iMac is a computer and the other is not.

    So rather than bicker about this topic anymore, I'll resign from posting on this thread. Will only do so if I choose to replace the screen under Applecare in the coming 3 years.

    Enjoy your $3000 machine. Hope the degree of yellow is acceptable and you'll get your money's worth.
