    People lets all get our eyes checked this week okay? I think it's a good idea to get your eyes checked very 6 months along side our routine STI tests :) Some STI's affect brain activity which affects everything.

    Love you all.

    Thanks for the screen model number. I had similar issues with the exact same configuration. First 2 had the A034 screen that had the screen characteristics that you have. My 3rd exchange has a A033 screen and is a keeper. From previous posts the 13 inch model appears to have 2 screen models.

    I'm not sure there's any correlation between screen model and the incidence of uniformity issues. I've actually seen problem reports from more A033 screen owners than I have from A034 screen owners. In the end I suspect it's all a crap shoot.

    Regardless, the issues I have on mine are very minor; I really don't even notice them in regular use, and certainly not enough to start playing the panel lottery.

    Well, I played the screen lottery with my 2016 MacBook Pro and ended up with a perfect screen after trading six or more times. I now own the external 5K LG monitor and the left side of the screen is pink, while the right side of the screen is green and has a dark patch in it. Can't win lol. I may go to the 4k screen since the color anomalies aren't as obvious on the 21". Yes, I'm OCD about wanting a white screen as I find the color hue changes when reading text and working on spreadsheets distracting... apparent while viewing some images as well. I own a 27" LG 4k monitor I picked up from Best Buy that I use with my gaming rig and it doesn't have any extreme color anomalies on it unlike the Apple influenced screens (I only paid $370 for that on sale)... colors pop on the 5kLG, but I'd appreciate all of the colors being fairly consistent.

    I it just me or is something wrong with my display?

    Please tell me if you see a problem. I don't want to tell you, maybe its just my imagination :(.

    Had the screen swapped because of an other display issue.
