    So my 15-inch rMBP was sent out for repair due to a heat issue. However, not only was my fan/heatsinks replaced, my speakers, logic board, and display was also replaced after they found other issues apparently. My main gripe about this is that nothing was wrong with my display and they changed it out from my Samsung retina display to an LG retina display. Does anyone know if the newer revisions of the LG displays still have issues like ghosting?

    It appears it was the earlier versions that had the problem.
    You have the MacBook now so why not test it yourself if you are concerned, it only takes ten minutes.

    Similar thing here with the same heat problems.
    They've changed the logic board, heatsink and 2 or 3 weeks ago they changed the screen and a fan. The new screen is a LG but that's fine as the old one was an LG too and I like the cooler whites.
    So, all in all I've got a "new" mid 2012 retina MBP :D
    Running better than ever too!

    Good to hear!

    Passed fine here. Thanks for the link!

    Haha, I guess they're doing this for all the Mid-2012 rMBPs that are in for repairs!

    No, I took mine back to Apple for the heat issue. The screen was done a couple of weeks earlier.
