    It's basically impossible for edge lit displays to have perfectly even backlighting, so it really depends on the severity of the unevenness. If you're cranking up the brightness to be able to notice this, I wouldn't worry about it. If it's fairly noticeable even on lower brightness settings, I'd take it in. You can google for examples of uneven backlighting and compare. From your image, I probably wouldn't be concerned.

    This is very good to know. At least Apple stands by their product and bends over backwards to make their customers happy. That's why so many people are faithful to the Brand. I get that. Well, said.

    Uhhhh...have you actually read this thread?

     

    I agree that there's been a lot of bending over, but in many cases the bender and the direction of the bending are the opposite of what you're assuming.

    Just received my new Haswell 15' MBPr with a SJE2 screen and noticed that the whites are much whiter than on my previous SJA2 screen (which replaced a SJA1 screen due to IR issues). Worth noting is that the screens are set to the same brightness setting.  No IR issues to be found or color bleeding on my new model.

    Sorry guys, slight correction.  My screen on the new Haswell is

    LP154WT1-SJE1

     

    Wishful thinking I guess

    Apple Service changed me the display again

    After a LG with pixels problem + IR and LSN154YL01001 samsung screen with a yellow shadow in In the left top corner.

     

    The new display is a LG ...  LP154WT1-SJA2 and is not the newest LG display.

     

    Any experience with this model?

    How did you find out?

     

    All the following does:

     

    bash-3.2$    ioreg -lw0 | grep EDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

     

    returns:

                        Color LCD

     

     

    bash-3.2$ ioreg -lw0 | grep EDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings

     

    returns:

     

    %

    PT

    4p0 6

    Color LCD

     

     

    Can anyone make sense of it?

     

    Thanks (Macbook Pro 15" late 2013, UK version)

    PS: I don't think I suffer from the yellow tint but still interested in the maker of my display.

    Is your MBP connected to an external monitor?

    No.

     

    Maybe Apple changed the supplier of their screens?

    One more data point.  Late-2012 Retina MacBook Pro here.  It's out of warranty, but having the exact same ghosting/burn-in problem.  Genius acknowledged it but, since it's out of warranty, couldn't do anything about it besides take pictures and open a ticket with the mothership.

     

    Forgive me for not reading 500+ pages, but has anybody else in my position had success getting their screens replaced?  Once I cool down, tomorrow, I'm going to call AppleCare but frankly I don't expect much since it's not in-warranty.

     

    With a problem as widespread as this, IMHO, Apple should replace the screen regardless of warranty status.  Also their "Image Retention Test" didn't show the problem, but leaving Chrome open for 60s, then switching to Dashbaord, exploits the problem quiet easily.  Kinda funny that they have a test for this exact problem that doesn't even trigger it!

     

    Cheers,

    Brand new just arrive after ordering it through my school two weeks ago. The screen is very nice and I'm thrilled with it thus far. I don't see any yellowing and as far as IR goes well who knows don't use it enough to know yet. However everything about it is pretty dag'on perfect. Brightness is great and have no complaints here.

     

    Very very happy here thus far.

    Have you tried using quotes (escaped) around EDID? As in the following:

     

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

     

    Also, you may be able to determine the lcd manufacture via the Color Sync utility. See the following post:
