Just looking for a little guidance. But first, here's a little backstory I received my 64GB 3G iPad last Friday. Upon taking it out of the box, I noticed some nasty backlight bleeding on all sides of the device (with the right side being the worst). Immediately, I took it to the Apple store. Long story short, they replaced it with a brand new one. I took the new one home, examined it quickly, and applied a screen protector. Later in the day, when I finally got around to using it, I noticed that the brightness was reduced to around a quarter (I think the Genius did this on purpose when I asked him to step into the back room and check the backlight in darkness). When I turned the backlight to about 50-55% (my preferred brightness), it became apparent that this iPad had the same problem, almost in the same places as the original. Hoping that this was a fluke, I asked my dad if I could check his out. Sure enough, he has some terribly uneven backlighting as well. His is not as severe as mine, but bad nonetheless. I called Apple and explained the situation. A day later, they called me back after speaking to the "engineers." They said that, if the backlight bleeding wasn't visible in normal room lighting, there was nothing they could do. Apparently, that's the "yardstick" they use to measure the problem. I even sent them these two photos, but they didn't change their assessment. Anyway, I'm considering trying another exchange, but I was wondering what my odds were of getting an iPad with the same problems I've heard many people on this forum say they've gotten perfect specimens. However, I've not seen any pictures of their flawless iPads. So, if you think you have a perfectly even backlight, please post some pictures. That will make me much more eager to return mine and eat the cost of the screen protector!
