    Can anyone else with a 27" ACD tell me whether they have any image persistence with the display? I just got a new one, and if I switch the background to be a solid gray color (a dark color but not black), and then I place a few browser windows open all on the Google homepage. After 15-20 minutes of not moving the windows, if I view the desktop, I can see the "burnt-in" or image persistence of the Google logos....very faint. If I don't put anything back on the screen, they go away in under 5 minutes.

    I had this issue once with an old 23" ACD....and I've read all over the web where it's a common issue with LCD panels.....but I'm not sure whether it should be happening so quickly with this ACD?

    Not sure if I should be taking it into Apple or not. Generally I would never see it unless I had the gray background and had a bunch of windows on the screen just sitting there.

    This is my 2nd ACD, after the first one had something trapped under the glass.

    Thanks!

    PS. Also, anyone have any good color profiles for this display? Very blue out of the box......don't have the cash for a calibrator right now.

    Ok so an update. I left a bunch of windows on the screen overnight with the brightness set to full and the screen saver and energy saver set to never. Using a gray background, I went this morning to check and while I was able to see faint burn in style images on the screen, they were no worse then what happens after 15 minutes. And, after just 5 minutes of closing the windows, the ghosting went away and I couldnt see any remnants of the windows.

    Guessing I'll never notice this normally.
