Dicebier 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB have returned a few 3.06's then got the i5 on problems yet (yes the 3.06's has dead pixels...yellowish tinge...and the last one had the flicker)
sandrotto 27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Does nobody of you have an issue with a yellow tinted screen (normally only in the lower third of the screen)? Mine was built in calendar week 45 and was flawless except for the yellow screen. The problem might not be that obvious from the beginning.

27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Just like iMacs from 2 years ago (returned), this has the yellow tinge in the lower center & right parts of the screen. Cannot color-correct images with a screen like this! So aggravated.

27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB no other issues except the crap screen.
27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB 8 GB none
27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Some occasional flickering. Temperature or CPU/GPU usage doesn't make any difference. I also just noticed that lower right corner of the display is slightly yellowish. Yellow screen
ECCM 27" 2.8 Quad i7 2TB I have the wonderful new 27" iMac i7 (2TB HD), from week 47 manufacture run. However the screen had a very slight yellow tinge along the bottom from day one, but over the last week that has developed into yellow blotches around the full bottom right... Read More
sirjoseph 21.5" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Noticing that throughout the day that the yellow is spreading. Specifically across the bottom from the right to left. Definitely can't wait to get this resolved.
Schwa72 21.5" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB Another data point for what it's worth...I went to Best Buy and checked out the 21.5" and 27" iMacs they had on display. The 21.5" definitely had the yellow tinge and the 27" definitely did not have the tinge. The smaller iMac was a week 39 model and the... Read More
dratter 21.5" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB I noticed the yellow tint in the lower right corner this morning. I called my wife to look at it. She didn't see it at first, but then noticed after I Started Textedit and moved that window from the upper left of the screen (white) to the lower right... Read More
tjtoed 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB Took my first 27" i5 back due to screen flickering after 9 says of ownership, the new one I received is showing the yellow tinge on the bottom half of the display. Very annoying... not sure it's worth exchanging yet again... my guess is this is more... Read More
sirjoseph 21.5" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB First let me say that the Genius Bar and Apple store were awesome to work with. They swapped out my iMac even though I bought it from Best Buy. That being said, I fired up my new iMac and the yellow is still there. This time it is predominantly on the... Read More
27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB Yellow screen
27" 3.06 Core2Duo 1TB This one had noticeable yellow blotchiness in bottom 1/3rd. Exchanged at store for a 2nd one which I have now -- this one is warmer across the center vertically, but it's less apparent.

Magnus Lundholm 27" 2.8 Quad i7 1TB I got my 27" iMac Corei7 last week, and I think the backlight bleeding in the lower corners is quite disturbing when working with darker colors. The screen is constantly "glowing" in the corners, even at low brightness and good ambient lighting. Is this... Read More
