IPS Retina Screen Burn/Backlight Bleed


Active Member

What level of screen burn/backlight bleed is acceptable on a MacBook Pro retina?

I just bought a 15 inch 2015 one and the screen is pictured below. I appreciate I will not use it in these conditions but it’s more significant than on. My 13 inch MBP of the same era.

I noticed the top right corner when I flicked to a dark screen. I appreciate this happens often, but is this level normal?

These were in a dark room with the screen on full brightness (as mentioned, doesn’t represent normal usage conditions).
