    I just dropped off my 2012 MBPr (purchased on launch date) with an LG screen for IR issues at the Apple store.  It failed the apple image retention test.  The mere fact that Apple has an image retention test proves to me that this is a widespread problem.  I'm praying my new display is Samsung.

    It *****. The 2013 update is like a slap in the face for people that bought a mid-2012 model, including myself :(

    If my new display is LG, I'll seriously consider selling it privately.  It was getting worse by the day.

    My temps while maxing out the CPU with batch processing average near 100C and both fans are at or near 100% the whole time.  Just browsing the web or most other basic tasks it runs between 50 - 70C according to 'temperature guage' in the menu bar, which is showing the overall average of all the sensors I believe.  I never really look at the actual CPU core temp readings unless I'm doing batch file processing.

    I recently purchased a 13" rMBP and it was delivered on Saturday.  Since the terminal command doesn't work on this model, is there any way to find out the display's manufacturer?  I'm still within the return period and would like to have this info, so I can make a return decision.

     

    Most people select this model for the retina screen quality and pay for that upgrade. Apple customers should not have to "play the lottery", worry about IR or dealing/fighting with Apple later if a problem arises after the return period. I'm just sick that I found this thread the day after I ordered...

    Did you have apple care to return it? Or is it covered under the warranty?

    Im wondering that myself. If an overheat was affecting the LG screens, but the Samsung glass is a bit more heat resistant.. I have no data, just speculation.

    Can someone provide an update on where this issue stands? I gave up trying to scan through the 468+ pages of comments spanning several months.

     

    My pending questions:

     

    1. Is there a currently functional Terminal command for determining the display manufacturer on the latest (2013) rMBPs?
      (I've seen several iterations of suggested Terminal commands along with comments that Apple is now blocking users' ability to determine the display manufacturer this way.)

    2. Is Apple still replacing new machines when they exhibit the burn-in symptoms or are they trying to pass it off as being "within spec" and urging use of screensavers?

    3. Is there any evidence that the latest batches of LG-manufactured displays have improved in any way or are they just as likely to have this issue?
      (...given that Apple has a clear interest in moving their manufacturing from Samsing to LG.)

    Hi guys.

    My MacBook Pro Retina is 2 months old. Manifactured on week 48 ( November 2012 )

    LG display.

    Still no sign of IR at all.

     

    It is simply amazing.

    Does anybody know the Terminal command to list the display info for the 13" rMBP?

    There doesn't seem to be a terminal command that works for the 13" rMBP. I'd love to know, as I recently pruchased a 13" rMBP that I can detect IR on. If the 13" rMBP all have LG screens and there's no IR free (Samsung) versions out there (like there are with the 15" rMBP), that would be useful information.

    @freediver, this worked for me in terminal to test my MBPr 15":

     

    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    Well I hope I don't regret not taking your advise. Today my return eligibility expires from Amazon. 30 days without any sign of IR so I felt I couldn't give a return reason of defective. Their policy states they can charge a restocking fee and that would be substantial so I decided to tough it out. I followed the remedy given by a previous entry in this forum to display a series of solid color frames for 10 hours straight to, as he called it, age the pixels. He had success preventing IR on plasma screens and claimed it actually cured all 7 of the rmbp displays that he applied it to. They had already shown signs and following this the IR disappeared and had not returned. I thought, worth a try. Mine was listed as week 51 so I don't think they'd fixed anything yet. We'll see. As soon as I see the first sign I'll be back for a public mocking in the village square. Had his chance and let it go.

    Wow!!! almost 500 frames panning months of posts and replies... I gave up when I accidentlly clicked frame 468!!! after scheming through upto frame 109...   I says "...M%&%&&%F@&%#&#%..."

     

    So, I got upto looking up my new 15" retina's panel manufacturer using the command, and Luckily? it's a Sammy! Phew~  I just upgraded from 13" retina to size 15", which initially I thought was too big, but was just too saliva dripping good to ignore.  Anyways, after the handsome discount due to the "new" early 2013 rolling out was just too good to ignore... Brand new, non-refurb's, I might add, retina 15" mid 2012 for $400+ off MSRP and with the Sammy-seemingly much better display was the end of the road of returns and exchanges and settling home.

     

    But the news of Apple using "newer" components were putting shoes on my feet again and looking for the receipt.    I know,,, some say I may be too anal... but owning a 2+Grand Apple laptop is like having a Porche in my Garage... it's an experience, more than just a computer.  BTW, I LOVE this thing! it's a GEM.  Best laptop ever.

     

    Nevertheless, my question to those of you who have been following this post and with better judgement than I, please throw in your 2 cents in my hat.  Knowing what you know now, will you? if you were me, return this lucky machine that is mid 2012 with Sammy panel, and take a chance at Early 2013 with seemingly "improved" components and miniscule CPU speed bump?  Yes, it would be just a $100 more with my discount.  Is new always better?  Just reviewing the last few posts suggest even the new ones seem to still have the 'infamous' LG panels.  Or is this issue just overblown?  Please erase my ignorane and clarify.

     

    I would really appreciate your opinions.

    If your current machine is perfect as it is, I'd just keep it if. Don't take the chance.
