    I've had a new LED display since Christmas, and it's been perfect thus far. Until about five minutes ago.

    About five minutes ago I noticed it shift color, as if it was switching a color profile. It was faint but definitely noticeable. I watched it and kept surfing for a few minutes and noticed it shift back and forth arbitrarily several more times in a five minute time span.

    The monitor is plenty warm in the bottom left behind, as it's been on for about 4-5 hours now.

    I've never noticed this effect before. Anyone else noticed this, and does Apple know about it?

    There has been some threads regarding the color shift issue.
    I was one of them that had the problem.

    I didn't go through the Apple support,
    but was concerned with LED Cinema Display overheating.
    When used for many hours, the bottom left corner around the speakers was getting hot.
    Since the color shift problem came when it got hot,
    I lowered the brightness setting.

    Since the display comes in 100% brightness, I lowered it to about 90%.
    Then the issue was gone.
    The display wasn't overheating and the color shift issue no longer appeared.
    Not the best of the solutions, but it did fix it.
