Today I received the new iPad and had to find extreme backlight bleeding. The white is shown not homogeneous. Anyone who has encountered something similar?
I would never take the time to do such a weird test to find something wrong with a product I buy that I couldn't notice in REGULAR use.
I tell you this in your thread because......you shouldn't either Life will be simpler, your anxiety level and blood pressure will go down, and you will ENJOY your day!
You can thank me later...
Me too. My iPad 2 has bleeding but I completely forgot about it. It's really not noticeable during normal usage.I was terrified about this when I bought my iPad2 a year ago. Soon as i got home i checked for the bleeding. Unfortunately, mine was bleeding too. As the ipad was sold out everywhere i could not swap my ipad, so i decided to hold on to it for a while. In all honesty, i simply forgot the "problem" existed. You will never notice it under normal usage, as you will never use 100% brightness in a dark room. I swear this will never effect normal usage (although yours seems a bit extreme)
Incredible. I thought they would have remedied this. It is obviously because of design/ manufacturing. It is not faulty panels. Just like the 2 was packed to the gills and the glass sandwiched on produced an uneven distribution of pressure around the perimeter of the screen where the bezel meets. Try it yourself- press along the bezel close to the bleed spots and you will be able to make it better or worse depending on pressure distribution.
I thought perhaps the slight change in thickness with the new iPad was an attempt to remedy the situation by creating more leeway for the components to rest properly with even pressure distribution. I guess I was wrong. I could not deal with the 2's bleeding, so I purchased an original iPad and I am happy. No bleed. Not on my original iPad or my sister's. It is a design flaw, and for those who enjoy watching letterbox movies, it is unacceptable. I will wait for the next redesign.
Apple is praising this incredible retina display, only to have a faulty design or manufacturing process ruin it with light bleed? I don't understand.
Thanks for the tip but didn't work. When I press on the sides the backlight bleed gets worse and back to the previous state when releasing the pressure. I am returning mine next week.
I wasnt saying that it would get better permanently- its not a fix, I was simply implying that you could see for yourself that it is due to pressure distribution varying in certain spots and that's what causes the bleed. You being able to make it worse by pressing and releasing to make it better (or back to the way it was) was exactly what I was talking about. Sorry, should have made that clearer. Definitely return it.
