usually around 75% - I like it bright. however, I don't really feel that the panel itself is as bright as my iPhone 4s or other iPads in the past.

40-50% normally but adjust it according to ambient.

Like that with one swipe I can adjust anytime.

Air is good!:p

At home I usually run it at about 20-25%. The ambient light in my house is low though, so even 20%~ seems quite bright to me.

I typically go between 25-40% for most use, in brighter settings I go up to 70-75%. Battery doesn't seem to take too drastic of a hit with higher settings.

I ended up putting mine around 50%. I turned it all the way up to see what that would look like- Geez, about blinded me. That thing can get really bright, lol.

Every device of mine is at 100% unless I'm in a particularly dark setting.

im keeping mine about 20% with auto on. no idea how you guys are using 80-100% cause it will burn the retina out of your eyes

My buddy showed me something on his phone the other day and he had it at full brightness, it nearly blinded me!

I probably use it at 40-50% most of the time.

I agree. The only time mine is ever at 100% is if i'm outside in direct sunlight.

100% indoors is overkill, though it does look nice at the Apple store.

When I am inside on my iPad 1, soon to be an iPad Air, it is on 25-40% but when outside or looking at pictures I turn it up. I like that I can do it quickly in control center now.

100%, why not? I don't need to save battery like I do on my iPhone.
