    Hi Everyone-
    My first Ipad2 had some serious light bleed issues and I had no problem exchanging it at an apple store for one with no issues. Here is a great site I found that you can use to test your screen for light bleed/bad pixels:

    http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php

    It contains pages of solid colors that you can test your screen with. It helps to use a browser like Mercury that allows you to view at full screen.

    Cheers!

    Link corrected now. Thanks and sorry.

    Thanks, i'll use this when I get my pad this week. Just checked my 2007 laptop screen and all is fine. I can only hope the 2011 pad screen doesn't have any bad pixels.

    If you can't see this with your own eyes in normal use (without the use if some other utility) is it really a problem worth feeling bad about or returning your iPad?
