Hmm that poll has a worrying large proportion of problematic cases.... I can't help but be put off, I was thinking of getting a 27"
I wouldn't put much weight on any open poll. There's no way to tell how many sincere opinions were voiced. In the past seven months we've purchased over 190 iMac's and I didn't see any problem with them. I've been to two Apple stores and three Best Buys in that same time and only saw one with a yellowish cast in one corner. Apple sells a little over a million computers a month. Statistically speaking, you are going to see more PC's from each manufacture fail within the first six months than you would see a iMac with a problem. If the manufacture was HP or Gateway, their failures are almost double that of Apple (percentage).
When something goes wrong with an Apple product it's big news. When something goes wrong with a PC, it's par for the course. That's because it's so rare that Apple products have serious issues. That's why Apple is number one in ever category they sell in (according to PCMag, Consumer Reports, Amazon and many others). You can call it consumer stupidity or blindness, but the numbers are pretty solid.
If you really have a problem with the screen Apple will replace it. Also, if you go to an Apple store, just open it up and test it there. There are tests that can be saved on a thumb drive to see if the screen has that problem.
