what does this mean "refurbished" ? i didn't get. And can I call for a replacement again ?
The whole screen, not yellow patches/spots/blotches?

How yellow? Is it a warmer off-white or quite yellow as in a coffee stained look?

If it's the whole screen then I'd say it's not defective but just how it is. Some people prefer the 'warmer' screens to the cooler blue screens as they're not as harsh on the eyes.
I've heard Sharp and LG are now doing screens for the iPad 3, not just Samsung. I wonder who are the 'culprits' for the yellower screens?

Though I know it is difficult but not impossible. Does anyone know the one's starting with serial "DY" who is making the Display Panels for the iPad units coming out of this factory ?

My iPad has the worst angle of view that I've ever seen. I always see half the screen as green.. Is that normal?

Compared to iPad 2 it is a little yellow, but I guess that is due to higher resolution screen. The screen is fairly even color, slightly more yellow in some spots, not noticeable unless you look hard for it.

Yep, this is pretty much me as well. Color temp is a little bit warm, but fine. Pretty uniform screen otherwise. Mine is a week 1, also manufactured at the DL factory.

Screen is perfect, ordered from the Apple Store online. Seems the DM factory is having the least amount of problem screens. Though this is going to be extremely hard to determine exactly where the problem children are coming from because everyone's idea of a perfect screen is going to be different as well, what is great to one person might look like crap to another.
