    On my unit, I have some backlight bleeding on the bottom right edge (in portrait orientation). Visible in 100% brightness, full black screen, pitch black room. And barely visible in normal operating room.

    Just want to see the general consensus on whether a lot of people have it or if it is just a one off.

    I don't have one but, personally, given the price of these things I wouldn't settle for it being less than perfect. Especially with Apple's friendly return policy.

    (My 5-cents. In Canada the penny is depreciated. ;) )

    Just checked another unit. Backlight bleed also, but in another corner.

    Again, these are very minor and are nowhere near the bleeds back in the iPad 2 days.

    Holiday policy is awesome. I got almost 2 months to decide and try different ones. To date, I have not found a device that is 100% perfect but have gone to accept many devices that are 95% perfect.
