    One dead pixel is nothing to complain about. I'd say your display is perfect. Mine is perfect too. Sweet I'm happy for ya buddy. Cheers, tom

    That's a very good display quality, if you compare it to the other pictures floating in the net. Congrats

    PS. I hope my new MBP 15" will have a perfect display too (ordered today) :)

    You can search around on tips to do it, but you can probably "rub" that dead pixel out.....turn off your computer and gently massage that part and turn it on in the process and you can kind of work that spot out. I'm pretty sure you could get that working.

    Nice screen. I was wondering how you get that white screen. I imagine that it makes it easy to see dead pixels? So far I have not seen any, but maybe I am not using the right color screen.

    I also got my MBP week and half ago and it has a perfect screen all even light throught. :D

    Just FYI I had purchased a Macbook back in July and it had a dead pixel or stuck pixel as some say but I took the Macbook back to the Apple store and they exchanged it for another new one.

    My screen is a 9C57.

    And about the stuck pixel, im one of those people that actually accepts the fact that these things happen on this type of display. Its only one, and other than that, this thing is absolutely perfect. The screen even closes perfectly flush. So i guess ill just learn to live with it. I have had three laptops, and unfortunately all of them had at least one stuck pixel. The only one that really bothers me is the one on my psp! But kidos to those who have no stuck pixels at all.

    I had a stuck pixel on my 20" aluminum cinema display. It wasn't there when I first got it -- only appeared after I moved (it was packed away in the original foam packaging, but it might have gotten jostled a bit?).

    I used a little quicktime movie that I found online that flashed through a bunch of colors... no change. I tried gently massaging the spot with a microfiber cloth... no change. I finally decided I would just live with it. A month or two later, it went away and hasn't come back.

    I must be another of the lucky few. As I have no stuck/dead pixels and my screen is almost perfectly uniform (as close as I've seen for any lcd)

    Are you able to post some photos with a light and grey background? Would be appreciated and a would instil confidence in many users that there are at least a few evenly illuminated display out there...

    cheers,

    my concern is the possibility of scratching off some of the paint on my blackbook when trying to wedge out the display.....

    Not to rain on your parade but uneven backlight is the least of your concerns. I can see the same narrow viewing angle issues of that screen you have. Coupled with the graininess and I won't see you working on that machine for extended periods (read > 30 mins).

    The movie has dead pixels in it. :D

    My screen is perfect. Although I have no idea how grainy screens or uneven backlight screens look like. It does strain my eyes after a couple of hours working in it.

    Hey, congrats.

    The MBP 17"er arrived today. Awesome.

    It may have been more accurate to state "this next phrase is specifically designed to rain on your parade"...

    Alright then :p

    Personally I am not too bothered by uneven backlighting. It is the sparkling screen that really kills it, especially when you are browsing the web (with white backgrounds) or text editing.
