So I have always had problems with my iPad 2, the original I purchased launch night had terrible backlight bleeding. I exchanged it once, the same problem. I got a refund, and a month later placed an order hoping the problem would be resolved. I received that iPad, and AGAIN, bad backlight bleed. It is important to me because I watch videos on my iPad all the time, so I constantly see it. At this point I received another replacement. Right off the bat I noticed shadows around the sides, and how yellow the screen was. I kept this one for ~ 4 months because I needed it for work, no way I could get around that, Now that I have time to exchange it (note that up to this point I have documented everything with AppleCare, and I do have an AppleCare plan). I called and got an express unit today. Needless to say the home button is crooked and looks like a diamond, and the screen still looks like puke, but no shadows. I called back and got a senior advisor. He said I am going to have to go through the return exchange routine until I get a good one, but he is taking responsibility. I bit the bullet, called him back, and said I will make the 2 hours drive tomorrow to an Apple Store to finally put my issues to rest, and get a good one. When I get there tomorrow, am I in the right to ask for a new unit? My friends iPads look fantastic, while it looks like someone took a "leak" on mine when comparing. These are all new units. I have NEVER had so much trouble, even with my iPhone, iPad, iMac, and I am so jealous of my friends. Thank you for your input, it is appreciated. I will be taking the box, guides, cables and charger. Everything is in great condition.
