    Just seems that every other post has someone returning a iPad. I know it's a forum and does not represent everyone but I'm just curious.

    Edit: It does not matter what the reason; defective, wrong color, not enough memory.

    Zer0. Either I have a perfect one or I'm not nearly as neurotic as I thought

    One, I suppose. Or maybe zero. I'm not sure really. I exchanged an AT&T 16gb for a VZW 64gb. Haven't done or will I do a return/exchange for "flaws".

    Anyone who chimes in with "OCD" for the 10,000th time hasn't an original thought in his head. Fact.

    Oh, I freely admit to returning 5. Your Geraldo Rivera moment is already public record. But thanks for playing.

    Im not sure if its luck, it certainly isn't lack of attention but I have never had to return any of the 3 iPads I have had. All have been fine.

    1. And that was because I wanted a white iPad instead of black.

    This is a terrible poll and should be updated.

    You should individually list units from 1 to 30. We dont want to see the 5+ lumped together.

    This is a very revealing poll. If my math is correct, as of 8:15 est. 73 out of 165 iPads were returned; for an effective return rate of 44%. That 44% is based on using a count of 5 for the 5+ category; so the actual return rate is higher.

    In addition, of the 61 who have not returned any iPads, there is a certain percentage that either: have not looked for problems, have noticed a problem (e.g., uneven screen tint or lighting, etc.) but think it's due to something they are doing (e.g., not set up properly, lighting problem in their house, etc.), or have noticed a problem but have accepted Apple's lower quality standard. So the actual number of iPads with screen, Wifi, and other issues could be well over 50%.

    I suspect the same percentage (>50% with issues) would hold true with the general public. The only difference between them and MacRumors forum members is that they have a higher percentage of people who are unaware their iPads have issues.

    This is a good point. It's like saying (made up statistic alert) the divorce rate is 50% when 1 out of 8 people get divorced 4 times.
    You're starting to go off the deep end.
    Either that, or a lower percentage that hallucinate. I would've said with OCD, but I'm not a doctor and also I don't want to be accused of having a sterile imagination.
