Re: Late 2013 Macbook Pro Retina - Screen Burn In
As a quick update to this thread, I spent a decent amount of time reading the Apple Discussions forum lengthy threads on retina macbook pro screen issues (not very comforting as a consumer of Apple products since well.... They are Apple products and are all about quality etc).
I did some tests of my own using different wallpaper colors and brightness at 100% and here are my findings. (BTW I used the terminal command and found out that I have a Samsung made display, and from what I read on other forums, its revision A01).
- I don't see any trace of image retention/ghosting (aka burn in)
- No dead pixels
- Display backlight seems pretty even to my eyes (usual slight brightness near the edge as is with any edge lit LED display, even TVs)
- Using a solid white wallpaper and brightness cranked up to 100% I believe that I can confirm that I have a slight yellowing at the bottom left corner
- Interestingly, unless it's my eyes (you all do know that we all see very slight variances in colors unique to ourselves.... just nature), the Apple logo on the case when lit up exhibits a slight pink color in its glow..............
I'd like to hear more from you on this forum regarding these apparent screen issues. Reading other forums I gather Apple has been replacing displays, however people are going back four, maybe more than four times for replacement displays, because apparently the replacements exhibit the same issue. But it seems as a whole Apple is mum on the subject. No official announcement or recalls or anything.
I would be lying if I didn't say that the yellowing isn't annoying and disappointing seeing as how this is an Apple product and a brand new modern one. But as a whole it seems my display is better than what others have reported. Should I play the game of roulette and seek a replacement or is this what we owners have to deal with for the time being? Anyone here have any display issues, advice, or further information regarding the topic?
Are there ANY retina macbook pro models out there since introduction with good displays!?
I would love for Apple to officially address this issue/topic and (in a perfect world) do right by its customers and issue a recall/replacement for retina macbook pro screens with good ones.
