I have just transferred all my data from time machine and I have noticed like some others, that the Samsung screen even looks better than the LG. I just hoping for the best!!! I don't have each to compare on hand, but at least to my eyes it looks better or may be that I am happy to have gotten a Samsung on such short turnaround. Maybe LG should steal some of Samsungs patents it may help them.

FYI the Samsung screen I just got is in my opinion brighter than the LG I had before. Hard to compare as I don't have that one now, but I'm comfortable using this one a couple of notches lower than full brightness. The LG was always on full.
Just a shame Apple are sending out laptops with scratches, chips and the like, just to add to the screen issues!

Looks like I have a DCN 232 model:
Only just had the replacement installed on Saturday, but when discussing this with the AC rep over the phone 2 weeks ago I made a point of saying I'd be happy with an exchanged screen, if they could install the Samsung one straight off the bat.
Which they didn't do, of course - I can't say I'm all that surprised with this (I don't really see Apple going much out of its way to even acknowledge this, never mind actually fix it properly -- yet), so I'll just do the replacement swap lottery thing if this one develops problems.
Bit of a shame, they are great machines otherwise ...

Good point stecube, I notice the same! Maybe it is good news.
Of course there are orders that are not delivered yet, such as mine. I will report here my screen model when it comes. Also I think I should check the rMBP in the store for scratches because I see that there are a few out there :/

I figure I would give it a shot so like golf1410. But as someone said I am sure it will not be until either after Wednesday or the release of the iPhone 5, if at all.

My LG screen is still going strong with no problems over a week in, as people are saying it seems as though the newer LG screens are very much improved.
Info of mine from Terminal:
Week 35 build.

Day 4 with my newer (week 34) LG screen, still awesome. Definitely white-pink instead of heavy yellooooow... but I will try to calibrate it later.
I prefer white-bluish such as the rMBPs with Samsung displays (looks more like my Apple Cinema Display), but at least there is no image retention, which was the real problem.
So I got a refund on my previous rMBP (i.e., the one with the three different LG displays which all exhibited image retention). Apple Store employees gave me a bit of a hard time at first, but I pointed out that the delay between repairs, and the number of repairs, made it so that it's already been almost 3 months...
I'm going to report in every week from now on, i.e., less frequently. But I wish you all luck!

Is it too early for any conclusions, but it seems as if the newer LG screens, starting with serial number DCN232xxxxxxxx + are IR Free...
Or wishfull thinking????
My old DCN23020*** had still IR, but not as bad as my previous two.

Mind just under a month old, and I have been experaining very bad IR. In some cases its taken up to 10 mins for the IR to leave the screen. I have currently raised a case with Apple about this problem.
What is the normal proceedor for replacing faulty screens? Do they replace them instore?
