THE FLAGSHIP Apple line of Cinema Displays is shipping with faulty LCD panels, it has emerged. Most acutely affected appears to be the 23-inch line, which can exhibit a strong pink or yellow hue across the display that cannot be cured by colour calibration. Industry reports suggest that LG, which supplies Apple with LCD panels, may be the manufacturer in question.
Apple's own web board is awash with people who are mad at the problems. The Cinema Display 23-inch costs in the region of Â£1500, and users don't expect quality control problems at that kind of price. One poor chap is onto his fourth display, after receiving three faulty units previously. Another Mac Addict in Japan reported that every 23-inch display in the Shinsaibashi Apple store was defective, and a similar story is reported at locations across the US mainland.
