    I live in the UK, so I won't be getting mine until the end of March. However, I'm starting to get a bit worried about the screen problems that have been reported. So, I've made this poll to see who has what, if it's a small or big problem(s), and if it's an isolated problem to the 3G or the wifi version.

    If you have no problems at all then you check:

    - No Yellow (glue problem) *wifi*
    - No Backlight bleeding *wifi*
    - No stuck / dead pixels

    I have backlight bleeding, but i did with my original iPad too. It's barely even noticeable, and I'm not sure that it's even considered a "problem".

    Sorry but this poll is not a very good way to gauge the percentage of people with problems vs the people without.

    It should be simply 2 options:

    1. Backlight bleeding, and/or yellow (glue) problem, and/or dead/stuck pixels
    2. No problems at all.

    In fact I know there is already another poll that does basically just that. "Screen issues vs no screen issues" basically.

    Online polls of this nature are notoriously unreliable.

    They tend to be self-selecting: In other words people who actually DO have a problem are the ones that respond. People whose iPads are just fine are either too busy playing with them, or not going on iPad forums looking for fixes for problems they don't have.

    Apple is going to sell between 500,000 and a million iPads over this weekend. Even if there is a 99.9% "no defect" rate - that means there will still be between 500 and a thousand people who've got a problem. And I'm quite certain that some of them will show up here to complain about it.
