    It's what I have been saying, when they release the 13 inch we will see what is going on.  They clearly weren't going to jump in the pool... the 15 inch was the big toe and the buyers were the nerves.  The 13 inch has the flaws designed out and the 15 inch will get the change it needs. 

    Or... it could be the case that Apple was wrong in their sale volume predictions for the rMBP, and decided to ensure that they wouldn't repeat their mistake and would try to avoid running into the constraints they did because of that, and decided to order a very large supply of displays, since they are really the critical path here, and which they now have in inventory, and they will have to run through those before any "fixed" displays can be put into the supply chain, which could be a very long time from now. THAT is a great run-on sentence.

    Thanks! I'm trying to avoid the store at all costs. lol I only live about 15 minutes away from one, but it is always total chaos in there. I went through **** and back even trying to buy this thing, and was convinced to go to the store and they'd be able to place the order for me and get it all fixed (apples site hung on my order and screwed up my account).

     

    The guy was a complete idiot and after an hour with no more information then I walked in the door with I left. I decided to wait for an apple customer support supervisor to get my account cleared up and then ordered again. Then got the bad machine (of course).

     

    If going there to get the screen replaced would guarantee me a Samsung display, I’d probably go for it . . . but I’m guessing it would never go that smoothly. lol

     

    ADDITIONAL NOTE: The issue on the new LG I received seem so slight that I'm concerned they won't fail it too.

    From reading enough accounts of peoples' experiences and my own observations, I honestluly thing you guys are blowing this way out of proportion in terms of overgeneralizing that all LG screens are immediately undesirable, automatically assuming there are incredible faults and that ALL Samsungs are somehow perfect.

     

    The fact is Samsungs are having the same degree of issues as does the LG where although Samsungs do not have IR, many, with exceptions, have mura, yellow and pink tinting, and generally poorer performance color and contrastwise in general comparison to the average LG screen.

     

    If you get an LG screen, dont be so naive as to immediately dismiss it as terrible amd assume that getting a Samsung will actuallu improve on anything. I am assuming now that people are reporting better IR performance by newer LG screens that  LG has resolved this issue and are now supplying Apple with good screens, hence why Apple has not completely dismissed their contract and are still using LGs.

    Well if you had actually read more than a couple of posts you would understand that the reason people are returning notebooks "automatically" is that not all Apple stores are behaving honorably when a customer comes in with a bad LG screen showing IR to a level that a reasonable person would say there's a problem. Apple created a bogus test, changed language that included calling these defective screens with IR "feature" "awesome" "normal". Not bother to explain why, if this awesome feature isn't showing out of the box right away and why do most Samsungs not show it to the degree that the LG's do.

     

    So, it's pretty &)()* of you to say that to people that have spent thousands on a defective product without knowing their story. Have you seen some of the pictures being posted? I've never seen screens that bad and I've been using all kinds of computers for 25 years. I've never seen IR like these LG's are showing.

     

    As far as LG having fixed the problem, fine, they should announce it. How would you know. I think you speculating is far more naive than anything the people here are doing. Unless you want to identify yourself and let us in on some inside info. Otherwise my advice to people is, stay in control and return within 14 days or you'll have to depend on the ethics of the Apple employee you're dealing with at the time. Not me. If something has changed, they should announce it.

    In other news, 13" rumors of an October launch are more solid now. Considering Apple and Samsung are not really best buds right now and AUO is to busy building displays for mini, we're gonna be stuck with superior Image Retention by LG for some time to come.

    I am getting replacement. Mentioned Samsung display only. Asking for checking dead pixels, yellow tint.

     

    I am not afraid of dead pixel as long as they don't refuse to service you , if you have this problem. In fact, they do help you in this problem. If I had to replace it again coz of dead pixel, I will ask for Samsung again. I believe there is perfect Samsung out there.

     

    Yellow tint can be solved by using spyder4 pro. So it is not so big problem.

     

    IR is a biggest problem as they refuse to service you and you have to fight hard for Samsung.

    So what I've learned is, if I can write like Matthew McMillion and have it shown on gizmodo.com, there's a good chance Apple will help. If not, we have to deal low lifes that claim there isn't a mura when there is and blow you off with, "all screens are different" to explain a defective screen. Really Apple?

    Would somebody post a link to the Mac Rumors article indicating that an update for the rMBP is in the works?   I looked and I couldn't find it, but then that's pretty normal for me.

    Had the issue, it was an LG display. Took it back, they happily replaced it with what turned out to be a Samsung display. Issue is gone. Was ghosting for about 2 minutes with the LG (I timed it), zero with the Samsung. Display also appears brighter. I measured with a light meter.

    I have a week 31 LG screen. from what I see, i don't seem to have any problems. i've had it for a while now, got it maybe in august? I'm just curious if I should try testing a bit harder, or just leave well enough alone.

    I'd suggest if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

     

    With mine, 5 minutes in Mail would result in retention that was clearly visible on the darkest grey desktop background and stick around for a few minutes. I didn't need to do anything more thah that.
