    I have exchanged my iPad 3 times in search of one without backlight bleeding, and finally got one that is perfect. Every one I have gotten has had the glass slightly risen near the home button. I'm starting to believe it's just a problem with all iPads. Does a perfect iPad exist???

    I always have thought very highly of apples qc. It's disappointing that the iPad 2 has so many issues with it's build. I guess I'll just stick with this one and not risk getting a worse one

    No problems here with backlight bleeding or glass on the screen. iPad Bought on launch day in the UK.

    Maybe I was lucky.

    Same here, I find the amount of complaints of faults that get posted on here hard to believe.

    Why? There's even images to go along with a lot of the problems posted.

    Sheer number and tales of multiple replacements, not just iPad problems either, none of mine or friends have any of the issues that get reported. although it seems people only mention the defective units and the good ones go unmentioned, which generates a false image of any issue.

    So the more complaints you hear the less likely you are to believe there's a problem. Ok.

    I believe there are issues, but I also believe Apple users expect perfection, (as Apple advertises that image.) The glass being slightly raised around the home button is an issue for an Apple branded device. Nearly any other manufacture would not consider it an issue.

    same issue

    I posted this same issue the other week prior to returning the device. I had an AT&T 32GB WiFi+3G that I bought at Walmart. The bottom half of the glass screen was raised increasingly as it reached to the home button area. Enough so that I could actually see movement when I pushed the screen down in those areas. Since it was difficult to find a 32GB or AT&T model anywhere in my area, I returned it to Walmart rather than trying to exchange with fears the next open box would have the same issue.

    I'm debating on waiting altogether until the iPad3 or waiting out the initial production rush.

    Has anyone's screen gotten worse over time? I think for the normal consumer the glass would be a non issue. But people on macrumors are not the "average" consumer and we have high standards for our tech

    Errr no. Why on earth would you think that.

    No product that has a glass surface which is stuck down should have the glass lifting away from the device anywhere. Be it $4.99 or $499.99

    I talked to applecare and started a case log on my glass. If it gets worse i will swap it out but for now im just going to keep it. Don't want to lose my sp and skin again.

    I can't tell if mine is the glass being too high or the home button being too pushed in. It is annoying though.

    All the iPads I have had have all had backlight bleed and glass issues. Si the fact that I eliminated 1 of the 2 makes me feel like I should keep this one unless the glass starts flying off the screen

    Yeah, but all of the backlight bleeding issue pics I've seen had to be so enhanced to see the issue that I have trouble believing that the problem isn't a minor issue that's been there all along, but just being blown out of proportion. Too many people have had to find a dark screen, turn brightness up to 100%, in a darkened room, to "see if they had the problem". That's like having to smash your hand with a sledgehammer to see if you have carpel tunnel pain. :p

    Not saying that there aren't issues, but I think a lot of the complaints here have been of the OCD-enhanced variety. Most of them probably have other LCD devices with equal amounts of bleeding that they never noticed because they didn't go actively seeking it out.

    I was one of the people who had mine swapped out for bleeding. I could obviously see it most notably in a dark room with the backlight at 100% using a black background. But I could also see it clearly at 50%. And, believe it or not, a lot of people like to watch widescreen movies in a dark room. So it's not an uncommon scenario, and the bleeding was bothering me even at 50%. Why should I let a defect in my $630 device distract me from using it as intended?
