    I bought the iPad 2 on launching day in Spain. I was the third in line

    My iPad came with backlight bleeding, so today I Have gone to the Apple store that is 1 hour from my house and they changed my iPad with a new one
    The new one has backlight bleeding and a DEAD PIXEL!!

    This is worst!

    The iPad they gave me was the last one and they said to me that I have to wait and call them the next week.

    I'm very angry!

    Look the photo, is unbelievable.

    PD: Sorry for my English, I'm Spanish

    ^^^ stinks. Hopefully your replacement will be better.

    Just out of curiousity, why are people so stuck on backlight bleed? I ask this because most LCD's have it. Look at your televisions and such, they more than likely bleed light. take a gander at your computer monitor, more than likely it bleeds light. As a matter of fact, you probably wouldnt give a rats behind about it if you weren't on here all the time reading what others are saying about it. just my .02

    I'm sure i'll receive hate for the above, but it's just not that big of a deal.

    It's an electronic device, it wont be 100% perfect.

    I wouldn't mind a slight backlight bleed if it didn't interfere with viewing movies, etc., but I've checked my 2 mbps (13 and 15 inch), iPhones, iPods, 27" monitor and both of my tvs and none have it.

    I completely agree. The light bleed is only noticeable in complete darkness with the brightness turned up really high. Even then it doesn't interfere with anything. I'd rather have this great LG screen than the yellower replacement I'd most likely receive.
