Right, since i've been been spending hours of each day scouring these forums up to the launch of the iPad 2, I was very worried about the backlight problems, even thinking about waiting till a fixed version arrived. That would have been such a mistake. Though faults may be there, you will barely notice them while doing stuff. These photos were taken with HDR on from an iPhone 4. (100% Brightness) Normal Home screen http://james.am/ipad2/IMG_0564.JPG Typical Backlight problem screen (Zooming in to a 100% black photo) http://james.am/ipad2/IMG_0566.JPG Zooming into an iPhone app http://james.am/ipad2/IMG_0567.JPG Dark Background on app http://james.am/ipad2/IMG_0568.JPG Movie with black borders (also lulzy Screenshot) http://james.am/ipad2/IMG_0570.JPG General Darkish screen http://james.am/ipad2/IMG_0571.JPG I saw the flaw the second I turned it on, because I was worried and looking for it, but after that, I never saw it until I looked for it again today. Note: Obviously, some backlight problems are worse than others, but by judging the in-app screenshots against my Fully black screenshot, you can guess to what extent it will actually affect you. Lemme know if any prospective buyers want any other photos.
