    Mine is fantastic, H series, base model 2.0/8/256, first one I got.

    I tried the command to determine display manufacturer, but it just said “Color LCD” and nothing else at all. So I tried piping ioreg to a file, using TextWrangler grep to remove everything that’s not hex code between angle brackets, and xxd’ing the result, but a bunch of gibberish came out.

    You could just check under Color Lcd mmod and see if it's A019 LG or A022 Samsung

    I have a Samsung, 5th digit is 3, and my screen is perfect.

    EDIT: My mac's serial number 5th digit is an L. I for some reason thought he was asking after the serial number of the display.

    Aha, thanks. Manufacturer 610, Model A019, Date CCD71000. You say that makes it an LG?

    So far so good.

    I believe the fifth character of your Mac's serial number is meant to be a letter...

    Yeah...I started my Thanksgiving PTO about 3 hours ago with beer. I wish my cognitive abilities were as clear as the rMBP display. Fifth character is a "G". :D

    My 15" rMBP has nothing wrong that I can see. I'm loving it. My fifth digit is "L".

    No yellow tinting here. I adore this screen. I've had 0 issues with it.

    Not sure what the fifth letter of my serial number is supposed to tell you though.

    It's supposed to tell you the week it was manufactured. There's a theory out there that newer versions (with 5th digits being N or greater on the alphabet list) have less problems...

    Mid 2012 here, and display about as good as you can expect an IPS panel to be.

    Model: LSN154YL01001

    Do you want the fifth digit of the panel serial, or of the laptop?
    Panel: 3
    Laptop: D

    I had LG with ghosting, very good LG after replacement (both in 1st gen rMPB) and now I have again an LG screen. Almost perfect, unnoticeable bleeding, no yellow tint, great colors.
