Is the 15 rmbp still having burn in issues. I have heard the 15 inch is pretty much only LG displays.

I have a MBPr 2.6/16/512 with a Samsung Screen and never noticed any burn in (never tested. daily use is enough).
If you want it, bought it. If you have any problem just call Apple!

so far only LGs have the problem. the Samsungs are better but have leaking ,dead pixels and color problems.s o they are better. but apple will stop using samsung soon according to news/rumors so im not sure the problem will be solved anytime soon. ive returned two MBPr machines and will not buy any until apples solves this. if they continue being arrogant as they are now. ill switch to windows after almost 20 years.

I have a MBPr with zero problems. Perfect display, perfect body. LG screen with no problems.

Couldn't be happier...

NOTE: I believe Samsung is not making displays anymore for Apple from what I saw on my headline feed(?).

Just replaced a MBPr with a LG screen which had bad image retention. The new one I got today also has a LG screen but did a quick 5 minute test which with my last one would have issues and the new one didn't. I'll test more tonight but so far this LG screen looks like to be a winner.

Burn in is what some plasma screens get when the image is burned into the screen I thought. IR is temporary retaining a past image. I don't suffer burn in on my lg but very faint IR.

thats because you have a samsung. all LGs have this problem as far as we know.
So far the new one I picked up today with an LG screen has been outstanding. About to do a full 10 minute image retention test and see how it goes. I'll report back when I'm done.

ok good luck with that. im looking forward reading your update when IR shows up. it will sooner or later, maybe not this week but in a month or two
After 10 minutes it did great! The one I returned it was EASY to see only after maybe a minute. This I did 10 minutes and am VERY happy. Uploading the video now.

I've had my rMPB since right after launch day and I have never had that issue, and have tried "testing" it.

had the exactly same screen as yours. IR showed up after 3 weeks not before. had not heard of IR before i bought a MBPr. ive had macs since 94.
Again the one I returned today very clearly had a problem. It was very clear and happened only after a minute. This went 10 minutes and I see nothing. Will keep an eye open and will change out if it shows up but so far so good.

dont misunderstand. its good news that this one is at least better than the former one but dont have too much hopes.
Just hope this is a sign of something being done because I do agree after owning one with the problem.....there is a problem. Many will ignore it but the screen isn't something I would accept in a $3500 notebook.
