    Well got my 2nd replacement today and there is light bleeding :confused: ohh well I just say F with it and just deal with it I am convinced that all ipads have this light bleeding. Its a great product I love it so just have to do a mental blockage.

    yea it seems right now almost all units suffer from light bleed. Im going to wait till the end of the month before i go in to ask for a replacement. Hopefully they will have fixed whatever they needed to by then.

    I'm waiting until June to replace mine. Hopefully it will be corrected by than.

    When you get a replacement is it a brand new one in the original box or do they have specific replacement ones in simple white box (like replacement iPhones). Also how do you show the light bleed issue to the geniuses without having a dark room to display it?

    The replacement I received was a new/sealed in-the-box.

    Apple has a long history of simply ignoring issues like this. I'm quite confident it won't be addressed until the iPad 3.

    Agree. The average user won't even notice this. Assuming it is a fundamental design trait, they will just leave as is for this version as opposed to retooling the product. It would be cheaper to just placate us picky folk reselling the returned units as refurbs.

    Now if a simple 'line change' can fix it they will just quietly make that change.

    I don't really understand why it's such a big issue. Do you enjoy staring at a black screen? You don't even notice it while using the device. Mine has it, and I really couldn't care less. It works perfectly fine.

    Mine has light bleed, but it's nowhere near as bad as some of the pics I'v seen on here. I have my brightness set to around 40% and I can see it along the bottom of the screen (bottom as in the side with the home button), when I have a dark background. It doesn't need to be a black background to see it. (no I'm not viewing it in a dark room either lol).

    I know I should just ignore it, beings it could be alot worse, but it still drives me crazy lol

    Apart from the light bleed, my iPad 2 is perfect. So I'll probably just put up with it and hope the iPad 3 has some better quality control. :rolleyes:

    Just hope my bodyguardz hurries up and gets here, before it gets scratched! :eek:
