    This is exactly the trap that people fall into when they read up on threads like this. Since it's already too late and your ignorance of the issue has been shattered, you now have to make the decision if you can live with the issue. However, first think to yourself it is actually an issue to you.

     

    You always have the option to get the display replaced later on in the future when your IR really does get worse.

    I just got mine back. They only had to have it for a day to replace the screen. I do notice a slight yellow tint. I got a lot of it out with the color tool. I checked and I have a samsung monitor. We shall see in the next few weeks if it holds up. I am a graphic designer and teacher and will certainly put it through its test.

    Today I received 2 more units and... *drum roll* HOORAY I got 2 more Lemon Gs!! As of now these are my 13th units and I have given up playing the Samsung lottery already. I'm hoping Apple's media event on Oct. 23rd will reveal a new iMac and rMBP 13" so I don't have to bother with this 15" rMBP any longer. It seems this product in particular just literally hates me and will go through any lengths to give me problems, whether it be cosmetic blemishes/damages, keyboard squeakiness, backlight bleeding, yellow/pinkish tints, pressure marks, and of course, image retention.

     

    Also, after comparing the 3 rMBP units I currently possess, I have noticed 1 is more duller in brightness levels than the other 2, as well as some minor backlight bleeding on the corner edges of the screen for the brighter 2 units. There is also no yellow/pinkish tints present on all screens, but I'm probably going to expect IR occurring very soon on my latest unit I received. It took only 2 days after receiving my previous units to produce IR, using a dark gray background and witnessing outlines of my browser in under a minute.

     

    Cmon Apple, release the new iMac and 13" rMBP since I'm absolutely done wasting a ton of money on the 15"! 5 LG displays ordered online in a row is absolutely absurd.

    I have decided to take rMBP back and buy a new generation as the intel will come out the better embedded graphic than intel HD 4000. Code name is Haswell. The new graphics processor in Haswell will support 4K graphics, allowing for a resolution of 4096 by 3072 pixels and cut down the power. This will make rMBP more perfect. Meanwhile, Apple will come out with solution for display and the heat problem. This is the first generation. Too many problem. Apple, I give you a time to get this fix. So, fix it.

    thats what im planning too. do you know when Haswell MBPr will be out? Im hoping April 2013, as soon as posible ;-)

     

    the reasons for waiting.

     

    -1st gen apple *****

    - graphics not strong enough
    -my economy doesnt allow this yet, specially not defunct product

    -hoping that by early 2013 something will happen

    Laptops and desktops with Intel's next-generation Core processor, code-named Haswell, will be available in the first half of next year, Intel CEO Paul Otellini said during a financial conference call on Tuesday.

     

    Haswell will be "qualified for sale" in the first half of 2013, said Stacy Smith, chief financial officer at Intel, during the conference call.

     

    Intel's next-generation laptop chipset (Codename: Haswell) isn't set to come out until next year, but when it does, AnandTech says the 3D-transistor-based hardware will offer twice the GPU performance as Ivy Bridge, and when idle, will consume 20x less power than Sandy Bridge. Excited yet? [AnandTech]

    thanks just saw the articles myself. even though intel releases it in february-april we are not sure when apple will update the MBPr. does anyone know how often apples updated the MPRs?

    dT.Tb Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I think it is in June. That gives Apple enough time to fix this problem. In fact, applications aren't ready for retina. Only a few.

    The MBP is usually updated in June just as the rMBP this last summer.  Sometimes the update is minor and sometimes it is a full redesign as the rMBP was.

     

    Because of the display problems with the rMBP I am going to delay getting one for a full year until the update comes out.  The news about the Haswell processor and the increased GPU capability is intriguing; HOWEVER, is there any news about a display update?  I'd heard a discussion about an OLED earlier, but nothing recently.  What direction is Apple heading to fix this IR problem?

    according to buyers guide the average between releases is 129 (Avg = 267) days and its not always in june, im thinking that there is a possibility of a speed bump earlier than june 2013 since Haswell is out in Q1 2013. just a wild guess..

     

    remember in 2006 when there was a january 2006 release and a speed bumb in october same year. But **** times have changed unfortunately.

    its 129 days since the release of the retina.

     

    a release in april will give it another 6 months 6x30 = 180 days in addition. more than 300 days in total. i cant believe that apple will wait a whole year before a release with the current GPU and the IR.

    you think that they will put an update for that?

     

    seems not many people have it or none of them ;

     

    so they wont change the display for that right;

    I don't know, sounds like you are getting them by the cart load and devoting a good part of your life to this. Maybe its best if just get your money back or go with another model or brand.

    Thanks for putting things back into perspective and ending the week long agony of reading this thread and obsessing with an issue that really isn't an issue for me.  LOL!  Just to repeat myself I have a MBPr week 41 LG screen.  There IS IMAGE RETENTION but only the image retention described on the apple website. 

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5455

     

    I have decided to keep mine because the only way I can see it is if I use a gray background and let the image sit for around 5 or longer minutes.  Once I minimize the image the IR is gone within 30 seconds...or maybe even 40.  If I change the background to any other color I can't see it.  I will keep mine and take it to Apple if it gets worse but I have been monitoring it closely and it has actually improved but lets just say it has stayed the same.  Not really a concern.  For graphic designers and people that rely on perfect screen...might be a good idea to purchase something else.  For someone like me who is a music producer it works fine and I probably will not be able to notice the IR.  I would probably notice a yellow screen even more but that's just me.  The only reason I noticed it in the first place is because I accidentally found this thread.  I hear the early LG screens were worse and have seen pics but mine has shown nothing like that and I have to admit at this point I am completely happy with my purchase.  So bottom line...

     

    LG - Slight IR that's barely noticable...only noticable on gray screen with a static image sitting on screen for awhile (for the good ones of course.  I'm sure there are some faulty ones out there).  It is temporary and will disappear under a minute.  I checked the LG website and it appears they address image retention.  Due to the nature of the technology this is typical for their screens.

     

    Samsung - Some report yellow screen...sounds more of a permanent issue.  Some say can be calibrated which is cool. 

     

    If you have any issues that fall out of the scope of what is described above you may have a faulty screen and apple will check it out and take care of you. 

     

    Guess we can take a poll on which you would prefer but for my profession it would be more of a task to generate the IR and be annoyed than booting up a my macbook and noticing a slightly yellow tint.

     

    For those who can't live with these issues wait.  The display really does look amazing.  I can't imagine using another monitor.
