    I have been already though 7 rMBPs – 5 from Best Buy, one from Micro Center and one Custom Ordered on Apple’s website – ALL of them were with the LG screen.  I custom-ordered my last rMBP, encouraged by these few people who ordered online and got Samsuns in week 50 of 2012 and the first week of 2013, hoping that I will get lucky too, but no luck here either.   It seems that Samsung supplies less and less displays for the rMBP, and it will be increasingly more difficult to get a Samsung one.  The manager of one of the Apple stores in my town told me that all of the rMBPs in his store are with LG displays and when I asked him “what about the other Apple store in town?”; he was positive that they have only LG displays in their rMBPs as well.  He was not willing to comment how he knew that. 

     

    I think that the chances of finding a rMBP with Samsung Display are bigger if you go to a non-Apple store (Best Buy, Micro Center etc.) in the middle of nowhere, where people are not crazy about buying this expensive machines and the store has in stock some rMBPs from June / July of 2012.  Back then the saturation with Samsung was much bigger. 

     

    BTW, I chatted today with an Apple Customer Service representative telling her that I am willing to order another rMBP right away if she can guaranty that it will come with a Samsung display.  She told me that she cannot know that, and asked why I’m so specific about it.  When I pointed to this discussion board, she was surprised, but said that if this is a known issue Apple must have fixed it already. 

    In spite of the 440 pages on this forum, and close to 230,000 views there, bunch of people out there don’t know about this discussion and about the issue.

    The game is about increasing my chances. If I give it time, I'll be past my 14 days no-questions-asked return window. And then Apple can fob me off (or try) if a problem shows up, and there's already early indication that it might happen (using an artificial test admittedly).

     

    Dead pixels or uneven colours can be spotted right after purchase as well, so would warrant immediate return.

     

    Tinge of any colour that is even across the screen can be corrected by calibration, I'm fine with that.

     

    I'll try a few more, but probably won't have the patience to try more than another 5-6.

     

    Wish me luck!

    I think it's just ridiculus that :

    LG with IR

    Samsung with yellow area and i don't mean yeallow screen that you can calibrate.

     

    Apple answer :  for IR use screensaver

    for yellow tinge....

     

    Big Apple llisten us on this thread and call each of us asking sorry and replaced screen with a really best one.

    I'm so sad for all that money...

    I agree with your words. I'm also sad for all that money. Apple should listen us and give us good Displays for this Money. They said it's Perfect but it isn't a perfect rMBP.

    It have just a good hardware but not a goog display.

    I'm try to live with samsung yellow area but it's like when you have a pain to a tooth. Tongue is always on the tooth. so my eyes are always there.

    Of course if it will became worst during the mounths i'll go to them to change it. I think i'll wait a little bit because there is no fix for this problem... If i read threads on this forum i just see all of them that have this kind of problem and worst than mine.

    That's so frustrating... i think that Steve Jobs would not allow this... Now i understand why a person should always search the perfection. If you search the perfection you can ask a lot... if you just say "it's perfect" but it isn't than this is the result!!!

    Its quite shocking to read this thread and find people wasting their time and lives on this issue. There are instances here of people having gone through 8 or 10 rmbps hoping to find the perfect one. I was fortunate enough to compare an LG display to a Samsung one at an Apple store, and let me tell you there is marked difference in picture quality in favour of the LG. Whites are whiter and colors have much more pop. These benefits far outweigh image retention in my opinion. I specifically asked for an LG screen when buying my rmbp and could not be happier. Have had it for three months without any issues and am certain even if there is image retention it wont affect me as I dont have the time or patience to sit and stare at a grey screen  This is a true instance of people not getting the bigger picture and basing their decisions solely on the comments of other people. Wow!

    ....and now i understand why samsung display have a yellow color... it's because with it you can't see yellow zone problem... and i agree with FAALi!!! LG have better color than SAMSUNG.... but i disagree with him about IR... it is hateful if it show soon and you use a program with grey background.

    I totally agree with FAAli. I compared both the Samsung and LG at the Apple Store as well and preferred the image quality of the LG

    People may be "spending too much time" in this but it's not just when a grey background is used, the retention occurs when using all kinds of apps, especially serious during photo editing where I see faint lines and patterns all over my images, it's really hard to tell whether something is Erin with my photos or just the screen.

     

    Really unacceptable. I have been wanting to return/exchange this for a long time, but busy work/school schedule is not helping

    After having my MBPr for 4 months and no IR problems, last week I was working on an email and when I quit noticed the message window had left IR. Now I notice it happening randomly with Email,Pages,Safari,etc

    Has anything been updated on this situation? Not sure what I can do at this point but I really thought I had an IR free LG
