So with every product launch there always seem to be some issues with manufacturing such as backlight bleeding, dead pixels, yellow screen, etc.

Can someone provide me with a complete checklist of what common defects to look for when I get my new ipad? Also it would help if someone could also explain how I can go about looking for these defects.

I just want to make sure the ipad I receive is in good condition and have no manufacturing defect before I enjoy it ^^ I'm sure other readers might benefit from this as well.

Thank you!

It seems like you already have a short list of what to check for. If people start bringing up any new issues in droves, you'll know what else to look for, yeah?

Why not just enjoy it instead of being OCD and searching for an issue you'd never notice if you weren't trying hard to find it. if there are any defects besides OCD that will effect you enjoyment they will be obvious without asking on the internet.

Although it's true I'm a little OCD but no need to be rude right?

I'm moving overseas soon to a country that is not apart of the initial ipad launch and it would just suck for me to realize that there are dead pixels on the corner of my screen right after I get there. I'd rather be safe and scan out any defect before I leave.

Turn up the brightness, go into a dark room, use a black background and see if you have a lot of light bleed or just a bit.
Thank you this really helps, exactly what I'm looking for.

oh god, THIS. People, if you're hell bent on finding defects, believe me, you'll find them. And the harder you look, the more ridiculous and stupid they'll be. Do yourself a favor and enjoy the device. If anything jumps out at you as a defect, investigate and if necessary, swap it. But don't ruin the experience for yourself. I learned this the hard way with my MBP's "yellow" display. All I got was a bunch of heartache and no resolution.

Makes sense, this is good advice I'll keep it in mind.
