I bought my first 15" rMBP back in Nov '13. That rMBP had a Samsung screen and seemed to heat up pretty fast. It was a base model. I decided to exchange while I still could for one with 16GB of RAM. When I did this I went for a CPU upgrade as well, 2.6 GHz. This new one had Samsung flash storage, no noise, never got hot, but did have a LG LCD. Of course over time the IR/ghosting occurred. Finally got to the point where Apple replaced the LCD. Now I have a Samsung LCD. This machine is a work of art. It's perfect for all my uses. I read all over MacRumors of people bashing it or saying it's a gimmick. In reality it's so much more than any laptop I have used or owned. Yes, it took replacing the LG screen but it truly is amazing...
