    Hello,

    Im about to get back my 15" late 2013 rMBP from repair.
    I had bad spots on the screen, which looked like glares, they appeared about 3 months ago and multiplied lol !
    Apple genius offered me to replace the screen, which is great.

    What do you guys recommend to test the new screen, I certainly will see right away if they changed it, but is there any kind of procedure to test it ?
    I thought I remembered that there was 2 different brand of screens, which one is better ?
    I was really glad of the Retina quality of my previous screen.

    Thanks for your input,

    Dimitri.

    Every screen is different, each of the 2 makes had separate issues that were more prevalent on one or the other but they all show some problems in some machines.

    Just use it, if it looks good then why worry if it doesn't take it back and complain.

    you're right samuel, ill see by myself i know.

    It's a Samsung screen, same as before, and of course there is no more artifacts on the screen.
    I gave my XRite to my brother so Ill have to get it back and make a new calibration profile.
    Will search the forum about specific samsung issues.

    Thanks !

    I'd recommend just using it as your normally would as well. If there's any issues they'll crop up in your usage patterns.
