scopro 27" 2.8 Quad i7 2TB No damage to box or styrofoam.
aaydogan 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB Outer box, inner box and all packing were in excellent shape. When I finally unwrapped everything I discovered the lower left hand corner of the glass was cracked in three places.
hubmonkey 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB When I opened it, I noticed a crack in the lower left hand corner of the screen before I had even removed the plastic sheet.
drpixel 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB The lower left corner has a crack on mine. My packaging was immaculate when it arrived.
vvo 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB Mine also arrived with cracked class in the lower left corner. But otherwise the system seemed to be working fine.
johnkuo 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB a small crack in the lower left corner of the glass

dpwrite 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB 1.5" crack on the bottom left side of the screen
27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB Crack was at bottom left hand corner. No damage to boxes (Outer and Inner) which tells me that its some sort of packaging or manufacturing issue.
27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB also got replacement iMac (it's fine)
27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB Cracked glass in the lower-left corner, right out of the box. The box was in perfect condition.
landskouter 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB showed up with cracked glass in the lower left corner. There was no apparent damage to the box.
27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB cracked screen on lower left
27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB I was promised a replacement on priority status. Apple has twice delayed the ship-date, so now they are telling me it won't even leave the factory in Shanghai until 14 December. Almost 2 months after I placed the order. Dell has better service than that.
eayost 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB My box was totally undamaged too, so the screen crack either happened when it was put it (which you would hope would never even be shipped) or just by the force of being dropped or something.

ahaskell 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB small crack in the glass at the lower left-hand side, over the black border, the drive also seemed to be damaged. It started up fine, but I could clearly hear the drive wobbling like an out-of-balance fan
techcafe 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB it was evident from the black scuff marks on outside box, that the system had been transported either face-down or face-up (not upright, as it should have been), so the couriers are laying the box on its side and piling other boxes ON TOP of the iMac
27" 2.8 Quad i7 2TB Glass cracked, lower left, apx 3 inches. But computer still starts up OK, so I'll use it until the nearest Apple Store gets me a replacement. I don't want to risk another shipment with all these cracked-glass reports. BTW, no external box damage.
Andrew X Harrison 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB I think the problem may be a slightly raised section of metal near the very left edge of the iMac where it meets the screen at the bottom.
reachbgk 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB Like many others, i received my 27-inch iMAC with cracked screen as well. My replacement 27-inch iMAC arrived today. Guess what ????....its cracked.
