Hello everyone! I have for a long time been reading this forums and enjoyed the myriad of helpful information and thought I'd join the forums to chime in with my own experiences with the rMini. So, I live in Sweden, Stockholm and to what I must assume is no one's surprise we have faulty rMinis over here as well. So, I'm up to my 11th rMini now and all but one have suffered from the image retention... and very bad cases of it as well -- just takes 10-15 seconds for ir to occur. The one that didn't suffer from ir suffered from horrendous yellowing that covered about 1/3 of the screen. 9 of the rMinis were of the F4KL variants which I have understood from methods learned in this forum to be the pegatron manufactured variant. Every single one of these besides one had ir and yellowing / light leakage. Two of them were of the other DMXL or whatever they were called variants, which were from the Foxconn production lines according to the chipmunk site. All but one of them were manufactured between weeks 49 to 51. Every rMini is of the cellular variant and ranging in storage sizes between 16 to 128, though most of them were of the 128 variant, but I tried (illogically) a few with less in storage density hoping that would make a difference. I hope this information helps... I don't really lend any significance to production week/facility or storage capacity after these experiences. Just seems like there is tons of lemons out there at this moment. I honestly can't really say I'm shocked about this... the quality control seems to have gone downhill ever since the unibody macs if I just use my own experiences as a measuring rod. Never had any problems with the iPhones I've owned or the larger iPads though. Why do I keep coming back? Grass is definitely not greener on the other side when it comes to issues like these (tried both the Surface Pro 2 and Nexus 7 2013 this year and both were lemons in terms build quality(loose nexus logo and dented kickstand and severe backlight bleeding on the Surface Pro 2, and a few dead pixels on the Nexus 7); besides that I didn't really like the software experience of those devices either. I guess I keep coming back because of the stellar software and the exceptional customer service Apple offers -- and lastly to my chagrin my itunes/app library. But boy is it frustrating nowadays to have to always open up my Apple branded boxes in fear of the quality control failing me once again, instead of the joy I used to enjoy doing so a few years back.
