Yep! I'm typing from my iMac at work right now that does it. 2009 iMac 24".... just looked up the screen specs on it and it reads "LG.Phillips LCD" when I look it up online.

The screen is horribly yellow and it has constant "ghosting".

Basically I'm more worried about the yellow tint issues than anything else, especially given that the iPad 3rd gens are plagued with them. Given that my original iPad has the issue, and half of my iPhones have had it, I'd say its an issue with the glass used in the IPS panels.

I have plenty of IPS monitors with great screen uniformity, all without any fancy glass cover on the front. Yet all my iMacs and Cinema Displays have all had yellow tinting at the bottom, along with the illustrious black bar.
You don't by any chance wear glasses do you? What you have described sounds like the chromatic aberration you get from the coating on modern lenses. I get the same thing when wearing mine.

Oh my GOSH! Early adopter babies. If you are early adopter then you should know.

And really, people are setting their computers wrong. They need to put on display sleep. So is non-issue.

Both of my 23" alu cinema displays do this as well, but the problem only started after about 3 years of near constant use

My 2008 iMac 24" has ghosting as well. Been going on for about a year now.

Ghosting issues seem to be very difficult to pin down. I have a 2011 iMac and it doesn't show even a hint of ghosting. On my MacPro at home (actually a HackPro) I have been using a Vizio TV as a monitor. I too thought that screen savers were a thing of the past, but where I had a few icons on the desktop they became almost burned into the display. When I used the TV as a TV I could still see the icons. I put a screen saver back on the Mac and about a month later I think all the ghosts are gone.

I think I will just be more cautious about using screen savers because it seems like there is no predicting which screens will ghost and which won't.

That's what happens when you live on the bleeding edge of technology. (where I live most of the time ) Hopefully they will fix this by the time I need a new laptop

And this is why you should never be a first adopter. Although, I was a first adopter of the first iPad, and I didn't have any problems like this. The technology for retina computer screens still needs to be perfected though before I could ever buy a retina MacBook.

And this is the reason I do not buy first release anything from Apple any more. I lived through the iMac screen issues, battery on iPhone 4s issues, etc. I had the retina mac book pro in my checkout basket and decided to hold off. Glad I did.

I'm massively disappointed with my retina MacBook pro. I maxed it out with additional Ram and processor as I intended to use this computer for 3 years.

I'm have an array of issues and will list them.

1- After logging in the screen goes black, only a hard reboot will bring the screen back. This happens every morning and it takes 2-3 times before I get to login succsessfully.
2- wifi constantly dropping. Dispute how close it is to the router
3- lack of built in Ethernet is Driving me nuts. I've gone through many adapters in the past 2 months. They all fail and the thunderbolt connector does not have a tight fit and cables break loose.
4- retina display is ghosting.
5- retina display produses a blurred image on high res settings.

All in, this has been the worst computer I've ever owned.

I have to agree, as much as I want one of these MBPs... The next generation is probably going to be amazing-er, and without the drawbacks. Here's to hoping...

No ghosting on my side, but dead pixels (5 to be precise). Not going to say I'm disappointed, but I feel a little let down by a $2000 product

Agreed. Way worse than anything I've seen from the rMBPs. However, this didn't start happening so soon after purchase for me.
