    Guys can you post pictures of what your iPads look like on full brightness with just a black image.

    Im onto my 3rd iPad now due to screen issues... and I have a horrible spot where the black looks yellowish due to the light bleed...

    I dont want to go back to the apple store and complain for a 3rd time for a swap... il feel completely stupid... and like I am just being an awkward customer...

    Another reason I dont really wonna go back is because next week il be attending an Apple hiring event at the same store.. and I dont want any of the employees to notice me and be like "Hey theres the guy whos swapped 3 iPads how fussy..."

    So if anyone could spare the time could you please post images of your screens on full brightness with a black image..

    If they are much better than mine then I guess I will have to go in for a 4th replacement...

    maybe wait until after the event? If you get hired, you'll have a captive audience then..

    FWIW I just looked at mine at full brightness and it seems fine on images with black in them. I don't have any all black images handy..

    I also noticed that at full brightness with auto off.. It's almost painful on the eyes..!

    Personally, I think that unless you're having a clearly defective amount of light leak, another iPad won't be any better.

    Heck, $500 monitors & TVs often have light leak. I wouldn't expect an iPad to be better.

    If you're looking for a professional-quality screen in the iPad, you're going to be disappointed.

    I'm not sure if its enough to get a swap over, it distracts me while watching videos or looking at a images with black backgrounds.

    Can anyone post some pics of how there screens look like on full brightness with just a black image please?
