Is there a 'break in' period for LG screens?

    I bought two MBAs. Opened one the same day and the second one a day later.

    - Both are LG and 13"ers
    - The first one is an i5/8/256
    - The second one is an i7/8/512

    When I opened the first MBA, it had a warm screen tint. This was a bit surprising as I had read that LGs are overall brighter than Samsungs.

    Anyway, so a day later I opened the second MBA. Now, when I compared the first with the second, the second looks warm while the first one seems to have a bluish/cooler tint in comparsion.

    My cousin also commented that the first one looked a bit different the second day, and that the second one looked like the first one did on day 1.

    I hope that made sense lol...

    So, this got me wondering if the LG screen ( or TNs in general ) have a 'break in' period after which they change their temps ? :confused:

    Would love to hear from you all... This is my first MBA, and other than this screen tint, I'm loving it !!!

    Thanks :)

    I had posted something similar. I bought a 2013 air and was comparing it to my 2011 air. The 2013 wasn't as bright and the whites weren't as white. Yet when I checked, both were LG panels. Not sure what is going on but I just wan't a nice panel in a 2013 air....

    So, no one knows... ? I'm using the stock Color LCD Profile right now, because the MacRumors.icc profile lowers the brightness.
