    Guys with the 2015 13inch Rmbp

    I was wondering how are the screens on the current model?

    Do they still suffer from uneven tints or image retention?

    How is the backlight bleed on them?

    Which model do you have A02A or A029 and how have they been so far?

    Please share your thoughts :)

    For those wondering which is which;

    A02A - Samsung
    A029 - LG

    I started off with the A029 and immediately noticed that there was a darker transparent spot (like a shadow) on the bottom right of the screen. It was especially noticeable when it was displaying whites.

    So I returned it and received a new 2015 13" rmbp with a A02A. No issues at all, it looks great! :)

    That's great to hear. I have just ordered mine and I hope it's the A02A :).
    Is yours the 128,256 or the 512gb model?

    I've got the 2,7GHz 256GB 16GB and I'm very happy with it. Don't worry to much about getting either the LG or Samsung. Both are good screen manufacturers. If it wasn't for the dark spot on the LG screen it would definitely been a keeper!

    I don't know if it's just me but mine seems to have some sort of blue glow at the sides when not at full brightness.

    Btw this is almost noticeable with a white background like macrumors forum, on black screen it's almost non present.

    Where I can see if I have a A02A or A029 one?

    1. 'System preferences'
    2. 'Displays'
    3. Open 'Color' tab
    4. Select 'Color-LCD'
    5. Click 'Open Profile'
    6. Go to nr. 17 ('mmod' tag)
    7. Check your Model number

    Surely the number in the Manufacturer field is more relavent to who made the display?
    Where did you get your info from regarding the A02A and A029 code being manufacturer?
    I received a 13" MBPR 2015 with a A02A screen that was aweful. The A029 that replaced it was much better.
    Something i noted is that the A02A has 17 lines in the colour profile section. Make and model being line 17. Abd the A029 only 16 lines, make and model being number 16......wonder whats missing.

    Hi! Sorry to open this up again...

    I bought one on sale last week, same exact problem! It's driving me nuts!
    Plus it has some light bleed in the corners...
    I was thinking of swaping it but its not guaranteed I will get the Samsung display or that it will bw better than this one.
