    I don't know but when I look at my 15 inch retina screen I find it to be normal.

    What symptoms should I be looking out for? So many people here have problems with their screens so I just want to double check.

    Why don't you just enjoy your screen instead of trying to find something wrong with it?

    But if folks followed your perfectly reasonable and logical suggestion...there would be little to complain about...and half the posts on MR would disappear.

    No fun being satisfied with what you have...


    :rolleyes: ;)

    You can do lots of screen tests here:

    None of them are 100% perfect. If you expect that you may as well return the thing.

    I am exaggerating my desire for a working screen of course! ;)

    I just get worried when I see so many complains. People saying that 80% of screens have some major flaws etc. I just want to know how they found all these "faults".

    I don't want to find out in a couple of months that there was some glaring problem with my screen.

    I originally had the base line 15" model and the screen looked "perfect" and I retuned it and got the high end model (for completely different reasons) and its screen also looks "perfect". Now either I just won the jackpot twice or I am not looking properly.

    I'm am not complaining..... I just wanna be sure that there isn't any glaring problems with my screen. The source of my concerns have been all these threads in this section regarding screen problems.

    And if your screen looks OK to you..why are looking for faults?

    Is there some reason not to just enjoy your computer...irrespective of others sad need to have something about which to whine and complain...

    Everything has flaws. Nothing is perfect.
    Thats what makes everything unique ;)
    I never return anything, flawed or not. (Unless it really doesnt work anymore)
    Returning stuff for petty flaws takes the magic away.
    I know many others who feel the same.
    Nevertheless: 'good luck' finding something wrong with your screen :D

    Go on an internet forum dedicated to anything. Consoles, computers, cars, you name it.

    What do you see most of? People complaining of a problem.

    Nobody bothers to sign up on a forum to start a thread saying "hey, look at me, I bought X piece of hardware and everything just works". People sign up to find solutions to their problems.

    You end up seeing what a very vocal minority is experiencing. If you take that as statistically relevant, you'd never buy anything from fear of having problems.

    If you don't experience anything wrong, don't look for anything wrong. You'll drive yourself crazy. Just enjoy your machine as it is.

    Such a good point! I have found backlight bleeding, 4 dead pixels, slight image retention. But I was happy up to the moment when I made numerous tests and gone crazy :) Now don't know to do, whether return to leave it.

    Well there's your problem. Don't let others tell you how to enjoy your machine.

    Because some people want quality when paying a lot of money for something?
