    Noticed this morning that I am having some light bleeding in on the upper right hand screen. Compared to my brothers which has none. Anyone else noticed this. Kinda annoying when watching a movie so thinking about exchange.

    Got a picture? A comparison with your brother's would be good too.

    Did they just replace the ipad and give you a new one?

    I have a feeling slight light bleed will be common with the iPad. You only notice it on a completely black screen anyway.

    Doesn't seem like something that would require an appointment, but I know some Apple stores are really anal about sticking to their genius bar schedules...

    not ipad, this is a technology issue with LCD. dead pixel, backlight bleed are very common. quality ensurance department should check and fail the product if they find it. low quality and cheap LCD tend to have more of these issues.

    Wouldnt call it common, its the first one reported on this forum, and only one other user here has posted about it. Although many people wont even notice.

    Oh for the love of... look, people see light bleed with every single Apple product. It's a product of your imagination. Let it go.

    4 of 300,000 ... How do we define "common" again?

    Oh no, I wasn't saying that we are comparing to the whole world. If four iPad owners on MacRumors have a problem then thousands of other people are likely to have it, agree?

    It might be common but my bro was very different than the org one I had. This one is different also. The store even saw he problem. I did make a genius appoint due to them being anal. They said mine was one of the first coming back. Oh well

    light bleed on my screen too

    I also have a slight light bleed on my screen as well. In portrait mode - its in the exact same spot.

    Its very easy to notice in a dark room with an iphone app or watching movie in widescreen.

    If I choose to exchange this for a new one. How easy was it to notice in the apple store?

    What was the process for you?

    As soon as I noticed it - I knew for a fact that others would have noticed too. Additionally - I wonder how many people don't notice but have this small problem.

    I upgraded from a 16GB that didn't have bleeding issues to a 32GB that does have bleeding. I noticed it immediately when I got home, and it's very distracting. I'm going to take it back for an exchange.
