Just curious is all. I'm not looking to bring up the gradient issue again for the 88th time. Thanks.
I'm wondering the same thing too.
I have a refurb on its way to me right now, should be here in a day or two.
my refurb 2.4 24" is fine in every way. i'm very happy.
Same here. I finally went for the 24-inch 2.4 refiurb about 2 weeks ago. No problems whatsoever. I did purchase Apple Care for it also. It's a real sweet upgrade from my mini.
that's great that you love your new machines... so, do they have band-obvious gradients? or are they smooth gradients?
How would one go about checking for gradient issue?
Set the desktop background to "Solid Aqua Blue", "Solid Aqua Dark Blue",
or "Solid Gray Medium."
On the 20" ALU, drop some colorful icons at the top and bottom edges of
the screen -- and compare their color saturation and brightness. Or open
an iTunes window with simple list view (no cover flow, no iTunes store),
and check for top-to-bottom (non)uniformity of the horizontal stripes.
On the 24" ALU, compare the brightness of the left and right sides of the
screen. Here are some examples of 20" ALU, 24" ALU, and 20" white:
Also try a solid white or light gray background and look for color uniformity.
Some 24" displays appear "dingy yellow" at the right-center or right side of
the display. (The photos linked above do not exhibit this defect.)
mine has both
bands running horizontally and gradient vertically (brighter on the left).
I work in publishing and it's not a bother in any way for me, though. Not noticeable in everyday use.
