Viewing data for flickering,firmware

Comments: This is my 2nd 27in i5 iMac; the first one worked fine for about a day and then suddenly half of the screen went dim - looked like the LEDs got sluggish. After leaving my replacement on for about 2 years (sleeping on and off) I thought I noticed some flickering. It got worse, and has even blacked out a couple times. This is a real pain in the ass. Also, since my imac is a week 51 build, it came with the firmware update already installed, so I can confirm that the firmware update doesn't solve (at least not universally) the problem. I've tried resetting the SMC and am going to see if that helps. Let's hope Apple actually does something about this, because this is unacceptable, not for the price tag they attach to these defective machines.

Specs: 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB
