There were some early complaints about the D800 LCD that it had a greenish tint. Nikon indicated the color was true, but I believe it was tweaked in the firmware update. There was no impact on the actual image.
While there may be a slight color tint to the D600 - I have not seen it. The LCD looks fine to me.
The color in the LCD is not intended to be exact or the best the camera can produce. Keep in mind the image viewed in the LCD is a small JPEG using whatever camera settings are set in the camera. If the photographer is like many and ignores white balance in favor of a post processing WB, that error is reflected in the LCD image. My guess is you are seeing poor WB from someone who is shooting RAW and applying a WB in post.
A slight green tint to an image helps to keep faces and skin from looking too red - a common error. The D600 and D800 provide the ability to choose a warm or normal/cool Auto WB as well as other options.
All in all I don't see Rockwell's review as being too bad. He has his own preferences and picks out some minor drawbacks. Rockwell does a lot of snapshots and appropriately uses auto settings and and do it all lenses for those shots. Most photographers shoot a lot more snapshots than commercial or art images. But he likes the camera a lot and recommends it. Sounds like a winner to me.
