I am on my 8th iPad and am getting increasingly annoyed with the terrible quality control. For the most part I can mostly put up with some minor uneven screen tint, but I cannot stand scratches, dead/stuck pixels, dust under the screen and excessive light bleed RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. All 8 iPads I have had either one or more dead pixels, or a peices of dust under the screen, sometimes both and 4 of those have even more surprising issues. And what starting to get a little bit upsetting is the attitude that the employees have been giving me, one of them going so far to call me anal. It is not my fault I am getting iPads with problems that are clearly defined as manufacturing defects and are not normal. I miss the days where I can walk into a store to get a defect free product on the 1st shot, me like many others, am a loyal apple customer, and I want the quality products apple used to make (heck, I still have my iMac G3 that is working perfectly fine after 14 years.) Also, just to list the ones I have had: 1st: cluster of dead pixels or cluster of dust 2nd: Dead pixel and a piece of dust stuck under the screen 3rd: Dead pixel and 1 LED backlight dead, making a very dark orb on the side of the screen, also damage out of the box 4th: 2 Pieces of dust stuck under the screen and a green bright stuck pixel 5th: Major Light leaking from an angle (like this:http://att.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1342106) and a dead pixel 6th: clusters of clusters of dead pixels or dust 7th: Very deep, dark scratches out of the box all over the back of the iPad, and a dead pixel 8th (current): Dead pixel and dust stuck under the screen, also after I went home I realized there were smaller scratches on it too This is not me being picky, for the most part I can accept minor things like screen tint, but these are huge issues I should not have to settle with, I have asked a few of my friends if they would accept that, and they also said no, one of my friends even has an iPad 3 with NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER, even after me examining it. Also, I cannot give up the iPad platform, especially the iPad 3, because I am an app developer, and I need it to test apps on, but of corse, that is not the only thing I do on it, I specifically got the 64GB LTE so I could to a lot of web browsing and also document editing on the go, especially when I don't have my mac with me. But the main reason I can't leave the platform is because of the app development. But regardless of this i should have to settle for manufacturing defects like this, especially for $1000 after the extended warranty that should cover these defects.
