    That's pretty normal for a laptop display. I wouldn't worry about it unless you constantly use your machine from an angle like that.

    Ditto. From head on mine looks great, but at an angle my 9C84 is yellowish. I don't consider this a big deal.

    Try some different calibrations and see if you prefer them. I'd at least prefer a blue tint to the yellow.

    Actually I believe it is a characteristic of screen with LED backlighting. Every LED backlight display I've seen has a yellow shift when viewed at an extreme angle.

    If it's not yellow straight on, then your display is fine.

    My guess is the color shift is due to it being a TN panel.

    I have the 9c85 and it does that too... I have also heard that it is because it is a TN panel

    Mine does the same.. as long as it's not that yellow when viewed straight on (or within a 90 degree range) it's fine. Every MBP I've seen has the same thing.

    I'm not sure what your point is. That Apple uses a pasted image that doesn't the color shift? Well, duh! Show one image from any computer manufacturer that's an actual picture of the display rather than a pasted image.

    Here is a suggestion:

    1. go to Sys Prefs > Displays > Color > Color LCD > Open Profile > Line 13
    to see if you have a 9C84 (LG) or a 9C85 (Chi-Mei) display

    2. go to this thread and try a few display profiles that match your display.

    Cheers!

    I have the exact same thing on a 9C84 (LG) panel and it is completely normal. The same effect was present on my previous generation MBP 15 with LED.
