    Just wondering how serious it is to have the backlight bleed problem? I have one that has the bleed but am hopeful that it isn't a big deal in the long run? I only noticed it after reading threads and testing on a black background.

    Thanks for any advice.

    It's only serious if it bothers you. Chances are, if it is bugging you now, it's only going to bother you more in the long run. If it's minor, try putting it out of your mind, if you keep noticing it, get it exchanged. I'll say this, my experience with apple regarding backlight bleeding has been that they are more than willing to resolve the issue as long as your under warranty.

    If it bothers you then it is serious, if not then just enjoy your iPad.

    Mine has no bleeding that is noticable under normal conditions, but if I turn up the brightness and show an all black screen it is more visible.

    Don't care though since I don't use the iPad at max brightness or with all black images.
