    As per the title, I have a samsung LCD display (C68) on my SR MBP that i purchased on June. This is my first mac. I have been told by a couple of my mac using friends that MBPs that ship with samsung LCDs are a bunch of crap, and they are yellow in the bottom 1/3.

    I don't see any yellow tint anywhere on the screen (unless I view it from a side). Looking straight on, the screen looks just normal to me. My pals still say that I am a dumb@ss for not exchaning my current MBP for a MBP with an LG screen.

    so being completely clueless to what differences LG/Samsung screen might make, do you think I made a mistake by keeping my Samsung fitted MBP?

    One thing is for sure- the forum boards are filled with people having problems with Samsung screens...

    There were some problems with the Samsung screens, however, these problems do not even come close to affecting all the screens.

    If you don't see anything wrong with your screen, then nothing is wrong with your screen. I see no reason to return it. The problems that were experienced were their from the factory so if you don't have them now, you won't ever.

    Keep it. If it doesn't have the tint straight on, it doesn't have it an should never have it. Just imagine: "Hey Apple, I want to exchange my MBP because of the company who made its screen." Forums are a bad place for reinforcement, people complain more when they have a problem than when they don't.

    good to know that not all samsung screens are affected. the mbp's treating me well, so I just wanted to make sure that an issue wont develop later on.

    thanks a lot.
