Defective 2GIG panel ( rebooting screen artifacts) ?

Been noticing artifacts on the screen prior to rebooting, is this normal, or does it indicate a problem with the panel?. Does it every time. (Ordered on October 31, 2014).

If I were to guess, I would say this artifacting indicates the integrated GPU is having issues.

Is this issue new or has it always occurred?

Screen image warping is a known issue which affected some units on certain production runs. These will warp the screen during normal use and your panel would fully boot up with a warped image.

Boot artifacts are more common, and may not indicate anything further.
