    I have gone through a couple of rMBP 15' and I noticed on at least 3 of them (2 LG and 1 Samsung) that when I have a black image displayed (for example begining of the movie) there is significant yellowish hue/tint on the left side of the screen and red tint on the right side.

    Have you noticed that on your screens? Is it something Retina-specific?

    You can easily test it for example with that website: http://www.flexcode.org/lcd2.html (select the black color test).

    here is an example (it's actually upside down for some reason, so its opposite tinted ;):

    Looks like backlight bleed.


    I have it on the lower left corner of my macbook pro retina, but it's very small, so I don't really mind. Yours look bad, so I'd take it into an Apple store and ask exchange it.
