Same happened to me!
I live in Bucharest, Romania and checked 4 MBPr's at local retailers (since I have ordered mine and expected to arrive next week).
Three of them were LG and showed IR after only 1 minute on a dark grey background!!!! The fourth was Samsung and "surprise" no IR at all! Very, very dissapointed about this bs Apple is selling!
I talked to the guys in the showroom and they told me that current Mbpr's have multiple issues (have you heard that the wireless fails if you connect a bluetooth mouse - say magic mouse- on every current mbpr even with ML installed?) and that Apple does not recognise these as problems.
It seems Apple is not anymore what it used to be in terms of quality.
I can understand innovation but what good is it if in comes with a faulty product.
In the past I have exchanged one Iphone 4 and three! Iphones 4s till I got one actually that worked.
Big thumbs down for this.

I guess Apple is too busy now with the launch of the upcoming Iphone5 so till september I doubt they will give an official response to MBPr issues!
And they are doing this using our money, time and nerves!MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion

I posted a while back.
1st rMBP was a good LG no IR (2.3/256/16) I wanted to spec up to the 2.6 so I returned it after 7 days and recieved one with a Samsung screen, no issues (SN does start with C02). Both looked good, white point was definitely different and the LG was slightly dimmer.
Side note, I have a brother in the home appliance industry - he claims that LG ***** at making home appliances too. FWIW.

LG is an up and coming manufacturer but based on what I have seen and see living in Asia, LG quality (or their subsidiaries) is not as refined as Samsung (not even saying Samsung is the best). In addition, what I am seeing with these Apple LCDs reaffirms my beliefs.

Please reply fast on : Do you know if the middle east (Dubai, UAE) can replace my rmbp with a new one or repar it with apple care like you guys have in the US/CA and Europe?,
Becuase I want to know fast so I could take a dissision

Last night was the first that i had to use my rMBP
It is a custom build 16/2.7/512 and my heart sank when i went to the terminal to find it was a LG screen
I have done the checkerboard test though and cannot see any traces of IR
should i carry on checking to hope they "fail"
my 2.6/16/512 arrived yesterday, and my heart also sank when I saw it had an LG screen! But I don't seem to have any IR as of yet. I'm a little disappointed by the yellow tinge to the screen however, and I can't seem to get a good calibration manually either. This alone is making me think about a return while I still can.
Just wondering from people in general who have received LG LP154WT1-SJA1 screens - are you returning them anyway? I am still thinking that a Samsung screen sounds superior colour-wise, and even if I haven't got IR (yet!) I still would prefer a samsung (for photo editing), and for longer-term pice of mind.
I could just get a full refund on this one and wait. But do we know when Apple are likely to finally sort this out i.e. admit there is a problem, and use ONE screen which works for everyone, instead of this ridiculous lottery?!
