I am just happy I don't suffer from same type of OCD that the MacRumor iPad forum members suffer from.

I couldn't be more happy for you. Now because you don't have any issues, can you please either contribute to the original question of where is factory DY, or leave and go start your own "I'm super happy" thread that I will be sure to stay out of since I have nothing to contribute to that. I don't need a bickering match in this thread too and have the mods shut it down.

Thanks.

-Kevin

No you just suffer from a lack of visual intelligence and competence

Hey Magicpie1980....I'm the one from the old Yellow Tint thread. As you can see I did end up getting back into the retail channel and 14 day return period.....of course at a price of a $100 loss having to sell the bad one.

Still not convinced this latest is totally good. That left side does appear darker in iBooks which makes it really noticeable when reading

Hey mcdj.....can you try something for me. I have no idea if it's just my eyes playing tricks....but I notice the left side is darkest for a minute or so after the screen is turned on. I know it's not my eyes adjusting because I'll open the smart cover....and see the darker left side. If I put the iPad down, still open, but don't look at it for a few minutes, when I go back....it's still a darker shade....but doesn't seem AS dark to me.

Sorry...what I'm getting at is.....does the darker left side get "brighter" almost as the display warms up?

1) Have your iPad screen off for a while.
2) Pick up your iPad and turn the screen on....look at the left side and notice how dark it is.

3) Now, put the iPad down....but keep the screen on. This is just so you eyes don't get used to looking at the screen. Let it sit for a few minutes.

4) Pick up the iPad and look at the screen again....does the left side seem lighter?

I have no idea if this is just me....but to me it seems like after the screen is on for a few minutes....it's almost like the old days where displays would have to warm up.

I wish I had as good luck as everyone else with DY serial iPad. My DY was really pink and dim on full brightness. Right when I showed my wife who doesn't really care for these small details even saw it. And the worst part was that the bottom half seemed dimmer and darker pink than the top half.

Fyi, mines a DY serial week 15 and the screen is good. 4th iPad - all others had noticeable pink tints.

...mines a DN and seems pretty evenly lit, with no dust or dead pixels...if you hold it at an extreme down angle the top right side of the bezel to screen seems to not be completely glued to the screen but at any kind of normal viewing angles you can't see it at all...

Thanks for looking. I'm assuming it's just my eyes

Damn this is starting to piss me off. Really don't want to go back to the iPad 2 just to wait for the 4th gen to hopefully fix things.

Anyone have any luck getting a DY model from a brown box? I'm passed my return period and swapping is my only route right now.

Can you see the 'DY' on the box before you buy from the apple store?. I was waiting for the screen issues to be fixed before I purchased another one. Perhaps it's now time to give it another try?.

Yes the sticker on the back of the box shows the serial number.

Yes. DY serial. Production week 15. Good screen. Other 3 were all pink tint and not DY.
They were DL wk 5, DM wk 7 & DM wk 9 i think.

I think mine does have a very subtle dark line on one side but im not going to make a point of analysing it. Im happy - i don't see anything wrong in normal day to day use. My first 3 iPads had pink i was noticing most of the time. I think if you are looking to closely then you arent going to be happy.

The apple guy in the shop said different people see different colours. Some see more pink and some see more yellow depending upon each persons eyesight so he couldnt guarantee a perfect screen. I don't believe that - to has to be something to do with new retina technology in the larger iPad screen. But luckily the screen was fine for me - the best i got and better than my brothers which was my comparision model.

I did notice the different serial number and that the sticker on the back was shade whiter than the other serial number stickers when he was scanning the numbers for the swap. When i saw it i thought maybe it's a refurbished one - but it was all new and with the plastic wrapping.

so if my new iPad shipped from chengdu, it's not going to be DY? Although I think this is probably coincidence rather than a new screen, but who knows..
