    My Samsung display has ~20 dead pixels and so I'm going to going to get it replaced. I was wondering however if there's still a lottery in the sense that the LG has worse image retention, etc? Or did LG catch up with Samsung?

    Sorry to hear you have so many. I did the online tests and could detect zero. Is this even possible or did I just do a poor job checking? My computer is only a few weeks old and I have the Samsung display.

    I guess it's not only possible, but also desirable to have no dead pixel on the screen. All screens should come with no dead pixel, and I guess this is the rule, although dead pixels sometimes occur. Or am I wrong?

    Clarification: I love the display apart from the dead pixels. My RMBP is 10 months old. The dead pixels arose mostly during the first 3 months.

    Ok I see, so it seems new displays might have zero then pixels fail. I had a macbook air with about 5-10. I only checked after owning it for a year though

    Will Apple exchange it?

    I've never had a problem with dead pixels with Apple products.
