Even if the problem doesn't get worse, I may return it anyway because a lot of people are saying that they don't have the issue at all. In fact, I just convinced myself to return it while typing that last line. I don't want to be in the position of having Apple physically replace the screen when I can just return it and get a new one.

Maybe because Apple and Samsung are in a huge legal battle....

Samsung - looks great! My first rMBP had white spots, not sure what screen that was, but this one is great!

I *think* my first was an LG and had horrible ghosting.

Replacement is also an LG and is perfect (so far!)

Glad to see that so many LG owners are having no issues.
I was worried this would turn into 2011's MBA disaster all over again.

LG with minor ghosting, didn't appear after almost a month into use.

Oh well no biggie, not going to replace it, doesn't bother me that much.

LG, no image retention ("ghosting"), but had uneven brightness and white point across the display (darker yellow patch in the lower-left quadrant of the display). It's in the process of getting replaced.

Which version with which screen?

I'm curious to know which screen is common on the 2.6/512 version.

It is completely and absolutely luck-of-the-draw.

Thank you so much for sharing how to check the panel specs for each model. Turns out I have the LG panel and color uniformity is way off. The upper portion of the display is reddish.

Fortunately already in the process of replacement for a different issue: crooked key.
