    For purposes of comparison, I took a photo of my RMBP next to the display model at the Apple Store. Looks like it's definitely yellower. What do you all think - can I do better with an exchange? Mine is on the left, display is on the right.

    Who is the manufacturer of your screen vs. store display? Agree that yours looks slightly yellower. FWIW, I like to compare "whiteness" by checking the Finder window (maximized).

    I can't see any significant difference at all, & my eyesight is good...

    My long distance sight is way above avg, & my short distance is avg.

    There may be a tiny amt more yellow in yours, but it's really pure estimation, as there's so many artifacts in those pictures.

    I've been following this thread for a long time, waiting to purchase a new machine.

    I thought I'd just add my two cents to help provide perspective for those of you out there dealing with screen issues.

     

    I went into the SoHo store in Manhattan this morning to try my luck and left with a week 48/R 2.3Ghz 15" Retina late 2013 model. The display is A019. Perhaps a little warm compared to my 2011 27" iMac, but very minor (and I'm especially picky) with very even with no backlight bleeding. And no IR issues after 20 minutes of testing.

     

    No other creaky issues or anything else to report as far as I can tell.

     

    I hope my info helps. This has a fairly recent production date.

     

    While I may have been incredibly lucky, I think its important to post when someone actually gets a good unit.

    Thank-you, it's incredibly rare for people to post when they're more-or-less happy...

    It's human nature, & I've observed it countless times in my many yore's engaging on the internetz.

    I know exactly what you mean.

    I just wanted to let you guys know that there is hope.

     

    And I certainly appreciated everyones efforts contributing to this thread. Hopefully Corporate will take notice, this is certainly the longest discussions thread I can remember.

    I have the same LG A019 on my 15".

     

    Dim the display down to the lowest black level and carefully inspect the screen. Mine shows a horizontal blurred faint line extending all the way from the left to the right screen edge (with some semblance to 2 tiles).

     

    Mine doesn't suffer from IR or yellow tint yet.

     

    I bought mine quickly after the first release. Your post once more shows (as we share  a A019 screen): there is absolutely no proof that Apple has changed assembly line methodologies or stopped production of initial tainted models and the same screen models are still floating around in 2014 as they were in October/November 2013.

    I just checked and on both white and black backgrounds and I can't see a discernable horizontal line and high or low brightness. Also FYI, I did this test in a dark room in case it makes a difference.

     

    I'm happy to post any display info anyone wants.

     

    I also used my Spyder Express 4 on the MBP and the calibrated profile shows very minor changes. The only real difference was a slight reduction in reds on greys and whites. Very minor.

    My Macbook Pro with Retina display just recently started having the ghosting effects. It's only one year and a couple months old, I really hope something can be done about it. I've been using it more recently, didn't use it that much in the first 6 months. I was still using my old Dell because most of my documents were stored on there and it was just more convinient. Even when I did use my Mac I set it up so the screen would shut off in about a minute and didn't use full brightness that much. Maybe if I used it more at the start, this would have popped up. What's most noticable with the ghosting is the icons along the bottom. Regardless of  the brightness setting on the screen, it's always there.

     

    My Dell laptop is probably over seven years old and still runs strong. Left the screen on for longer periods of time, always full brightness, the screen still works amazing in it. No ghosting, no burnt out pixels, no color issues, nothing!

     

    I'll stop by the Mac store it came from this upcoming week or even call Apple's help line.

    P.S.

    What's with this forum auto-logging us out all the time, is there a way to stop that?

    I've participated in dozens of major communities/forums over the yrs & most don't do that.

    I compared Macbook Pro Retina 15 Haswell to Dell XPS 15 Sharp IGZO Screen and let me honest, Macbook screen look not bad but compare to Dell IGZO is the shame. Dell screen look incredibly sharp, clear, high constrast and very bright, color look perfect and accurate, white look like snow...etc. I wish IGZO will be used on my rMBP but.......daily-dreaming.

  • x0054 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    That’s very good to know, thank you. The next generation of rMBP is going to have the IGZO screen, hopefully with some other cool features. I hope Apple also adopts the carbon fiber and titanium skeleton construction, because the all aluminum look and feel, though “cool” looking, does get hot.

     

    So, I have something to hope for The Dell looks really nice, but I have two problems with it. It runs Windows and it has an intake on the bottom of the case, which causes it to have cooling issues, if you use it on your lap. I have no problems with Windows, per say, but their  HiDPI does not work as well as Retina on OSX. Most Apps have not been updated to the HiDPI mode either, so, it’s hard to experience that display in it’s full glory.

     

    Any way, this is off-topic Apple, buy the same panel Dell is buying, stick it in the rMBP, and stop ******* your customers off.

    The new iPad Air screen is IGZO, so I am guessing that next year Apples entire lineup is going to migrate to IGZO.
