    Hi, Guys, I just got my iMac 5K 27, and I did a burn in test, and found that my unit have Burn In problem.

    Anyone have similar issue?

    ( This reminded me about the Macbook pro retina burn in problem for all LG display in 2012. )



    BTW, I test my 5K retina display from here.

    the retention problem is bad.

    I will have to return my unit back to Bestbuy

    I had this problem for months on my 2012 rMBP, but this is the first time I've heard of it on a Retina iMac. I suppose it was only a matter of time before one showed up with image retention issues. Return it and get another, mine did just fine on the test.

    Sorry about the problem. I tested and don't have any problem. I don't understand why one screen would have a problem when most don't seem to.
