I had mine replaced after two months use. Suddenly there were four dead pixels. All good now.
Sent mine off at the weekend for 7 stuck pixels and image retention. 2 large stuck pixels I think we're clusters of 4 and just appeared over the last few weeks. They even left a small hole in the coating of the screen where they were.
I just hope I get it back in perfect condition unlike the nightmares I had with a Dell machine I sent away once...
I pre-ordered a 15" MBPr upon release. That one came heavily scratched on the palm rest and lid. 3" long, scratches deep enough you could feel them with your fingernail.
Took it into my local Apple store and they gave me a replacement, yet after just a week six pixels stuck, as well as showing the much talked about pronounced image retention problem (burn in to some).
Long story short, three replacements later and no progress. So I got out of that one and waited.
Two weeks ago, I decided to try again, since it's my past experience that Apple will make some unspoken, silent rolling changes which cure some of the early model issues.
The current 15" MBPr I have is just fine.
Mine was a brand new replacement from Apple, the previous owner sold it in Ebay, including 3 year extended Apple warranty (Apple Care). So far no issues!
Mine is perfect after screen replacement. There must have been an issue with the first batch of machines.
Mines back. Working perfectly and Im very happy with the service I received from the reseller.
Also I now have an LSN (Samsung) screen, so I think whoever sends theirs in for a screen replacement will also get the same.
Mine came with an LG screen and developed IR and a stuck pixel after about three months.
I took it to Apple Genius bar a few days ago and they replaced it with a Samsung screen. I had it back the next day and it's now perfect. No IR and no defective pixels.
That's interesting, I had the same problem! After about 3 months, I got a stuck pixel or dead pixel in the middle of the screen as well as IR of course!
I'm going to get my screen replacement soon. Fingers crossed
How long did it take to usually get the screen replacement?
Mine was not done by Apple themselves but a premium reseller.
It took about 8 days to get it back all in all. (They had to send it somewhere for the repair)
If I had of travelled 50 miles to my nearest apple store I would imagine it would of been a bit quicker.
This is exactly what happened to mine with an LG screen. but, I had 3 stuck pixels develop in just over 2 weeks and they could be felt when moving a finger across the screen.
It was kind of like the pixels had exploded outward and left the coating residue on the screen. (Sounds crazy I know)
