    Anyone else happy they didn't upgrade to the iPad 3 after reading about all these problems on the forum (like yellow tint, underwhelming retina display etc)

    I am content with my iPad2.

    I love coming to Macrumors on a device launch so I can read hilarious posts like this.

    People come to forums when they have issues, your "horror stories" are grossly overstated. Millions of us are enjoying our new iPad's :)

    LOL, you obviously weren't around on these forums the day the iPad 2 launched. Today is an exact duplicate/repeat.

    OCD is OCD and some QC issues will always slip through. The iPad 3 is better in every single way than the iPad 2. I bought six and none of mine have any of the issues being stated here, nor did my iPad 2's when I bought those last year either.

    Read the same thing when the iPad 2 came out, and the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S. hahaha

    Amen. I think some people are just copying and pasting their complaints from last year's posts to save time.

    It happens on every device. People come on forums and see other peoples problems with it and get it into their head that there's has a problem too instead of not going looking for problems and just enjoying the device.

    Yes, keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

    May be a million but not millions.
    The other millions that bought the new iPad are here posting their frustration buying in to the apple hype.

    I didn't upgrade as am honestly content (for now) with my iPad2, but I hope these "horror stories," as you put it, are overly exaggerated...and pretty much trust they are...
