    Hi guys,

    Got a new late 2012 iMac 21.5" from Best Buy the other day and have noticed today that the left side of the display seems a little faded or washed out. Can you guys confirm if what I'm seeing is indeed backlight bleed?

    You can't test that by doing a print screen! Use a camera and don't over or under expose the image.

    You can't use screen grab to show that!
    Anyway just take it back for a replacement.

    Backlight bleeding looks fine, however you should immediately check for,
    Yellow tint
    Green tint
    Glue residue
    Stuck pixel
    Bad wifi when holding it
    Take a picture of the casing, blow it up to 20x and look for imperfections
    Check to make sure its a retina screen from Samsung........
