dpwrite 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB 1.5" crack on the bottom left side of the screen
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" 2.66 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.
Breaksandbeats 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB I got the new iMac 27" (dual core) about two weeks ago and have experienced the flickering screen to a lesser extent than many on here but still enough to worry.
CarpeNoctum 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB I got only one flickering, rebooted and never saw it again until today (12 days after purchase). I called the shop in Brussels where I bought the iMac from and they told me they know the issue, asked me to take the iMac there, they will send it to repair... Read More

Anijake 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB Well this just started to happen to my i5. 3 times today, flicker and the screen tear. I took pictures and plan to go to the store tonight for a replacement. Mine is less then a week old.
TonyDio 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB 4" wide red vertical bar that's about 3" in from the left side of the screen and is pixalated and jittery. Some times its nearly undetectable, other times its...well, a 4" wide red bar from top to bottom of the screen. What's even more odd is when its... Read More

robgb 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB Flickering and blackouts started about three hours in. I zapped PRAM and it went away for a couple days. Then it was back. Then it was gone. Then it was back again. This, over the course of a few days.

rpeders3 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB I have the i5 27 iMac and after 14 days of pretty much continual use (i.e. 15 hour days) started to have a flicker issue (white horizontal bar). The bar was worse when I moved a Safari window or opened one. It had all the trademarks of a software issue. I... Read More

mdevereux 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB Have watched a few movies and the flicker and black out is annoying. Random 1 second black outs and flicker is a problem thats starting to annoy me. Did not seem to notice it happening much at first but I think its getting worse.

Slicecom 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB The iSight in my 27" i5 has 28 dead pixels. Needless to say, it's going back to the Apple store.
