please respond if u do or don't have a problem such as:
~black light bleed
I do not have a screen problem now, but did. Replaced imac for mega stuck pixels. The new one is perfect.
Perfectly gorgeous screen (on 24" refurb). No problems.
Nowt wrong with this one, although the TN panel can be annoying when I want to watch a movie.
only problem is that i can't stop staring at the gorgeous screen
I have one dead pixel. Not sure if its worth bothering apple about, since otherwise its perfect.
The biggest problem I have with it is that it doesn't come in 30" versions with 8GB of RAM and a desktop quad core processor.
None here other than I only have one - I wish I had two of them.
24" iMac ALU
I am awaiting my third one now. First had half inch blue line in it that would intermittently come and go, and massive screen light leakage. second is almost perfect. but has one very annoying white hotspot on dark backgrounds (light leakage). I bought unit with intension of watching movies on it and such and this was a deal breaker.
I initiated round three today so on monday I should be able to schedule this to be picked up by fedex and will await unit three. I will add that my first two were purchased through apple's refurb store online and if unit three is not acceptable, I will demand full refund and attempt to purchase something brand new.
I will also say that apple has been great and even offered me a new ipod or headphones or a ipod case and like an idiot I didn't take them up on it. I just want a working acceptable computer. I can accept a level of light leakage if it is diffused enough. but this is like a spotlight coming from the back of the screen.
I know good units exist. We have 2 24 inch imacs at work. a 2.4 ghz and a 2.8 ghz and both are perfect in every way (no gradient and no light leakage) and are used a lot harder than I will ever push one at home.
I hope to get a good one. I love the design and It is a very fast unit. the video card is also very good for a casual gamer. I loaded america's army on it for my nephew and at full resolution it looked and played beautiful. Even with the light leakage, the screen was stunning.
So we will see. I will report back...
yes i would love this
sucks hope to hear good news back
This is amazing most people have no screen problems
As is usually the case. And I love it when people claim to have gone to an Apple Store and seen problems, while I haven't and there are two of them in my area.
I think the only problem I have is the screen isn't strong enough to beat the OP over the head with.
I had an issue, but I got the logic board replaced on mine. I guess it was the video card overheating. Had a line across windows, whole screen, or in a particular app only. Always random, and sometimes resizing the window would fix it.
no matter what the product is you will always hear tons about every problem that exists even if only a select number of individuals ever experience this problem. Very rarely do people just start a thread about how wonderful the screen is of their brand new iMac, rather the threads are dominated with doomsday stories of bad screens. So yes good screens do exist and in plentiful quantities!!
I would like to know from all of those who have no screen issues, was it your first imac or a exchange and also did you guys test it out for backlight and pixel problems or didnt bother since the screen looks good?
This poll won't reveal how many people have iMac screen problems. At best, it can only reveal responses of the people who come to this site, see the poll, and decide to participate. That's almost none of the total number of people who've purchased an iMac.
I know but i seems soooo many people are worried about getting a bad iMac and as u can see it is not that likely (according to this survey)
Well, if you knew that, why did you post the poll?????????
To find out the number of people who have had screen problems who come to this site, see the poll, and decide to participate.
Those who click "no problems" did you guys check it for all the issues or you're just clicking "no problems" because you dont notice anything.
I just received my 24" iMac about a week ago. There is a gray horizontal bar in the upper right hand corner of my screen. When moving a window from the right to left side of the screen it becomes noticeably brighter. I am very disappointed in this and for the money spent I should not be having this issue. I will be calling Apple tomorrow to see about a replacement!
just recently have i noticed the gradient problem on my imac. its not too bad compared to what others have been experiencing but it is somewhat noticeable. im torn whether i should call applecare and send it back or should i just ignore it. i mean its not to bad but in the back of my mind i know its there. school is starting up again and i need my iMac for my design projects. im torn.
Of course. I had a similar problem on day 1 and brought it back to the store for a replacement.
