Anyone else have this 27" iMac screen issue? Blackish streaks?

    As many of you are, I am frustrated. I am currently on my 4th new iMac for REAL yellow screen problems and one that emitted a brain piercing squeal at certain brightnesses.

    I finally got an i5 that had baaaaarely any yellow at the bottom, so I kept it. Now, after a little over a month, we are seeing what looks like black streaks behind the top left and top right of screen. It's almost like someone poured liquid back there and its dried. My GF does photo editing and initially noticed this, and yesterday I myself noticed upon boot. It's clearly visible on any white screen and shows up on certain other colors as well.

    Has anyone had this problem? What is it? What was your course of action and how did apple handle it? Any info is greatly appreciated. If you need me to post pictures, just let me know and I'll get them up asap.

    Thanks for your time.

    Just so you're thread stands out it might be a good idea to rename it as currently the title is quite ambiguous and could just get lost amongst the many other iMac screen problem threads.

    Can we get a picture of this since it is a rarer screen issue?
    Thanks

    I had a 27" i7 with a black streak across the bottom two thirds of the screen from the left- it was about 1" tall. The computer had the yellow tinge as well, and after the senior tech specialist (something like that) reviewed the photos/video of it he confirmed the black streak was a problem. He put me on hold, talked to "engineering", then set me up to send it back.

    If you look at my pics I tried to attach you can see it across the bottom. Although it looks like a reflection of the edge of the desk (which I thought it was initially) it is not. Also, notice the streak in the pic with the flash, which I think is interesting, but have no idea what that could mean.

    I am awaiting my 3rd 27" i7 now...
