    1) I have has 2 dust particles.
    2) When in boot screen the screen is black and just before it changes i see a white pixel, this only happens on the book screen.
    3) It stales in Air Video and TwitPad

    do you think i should exchange it? do you think they will exchange it?
    or will it think its to minor?

    If it bothers you enough, then try it ... if they let you then its a win. If they won't do it ... welp, you tried :D

    Did you buy it from Apple or Best Buy or ?

    2 routes you can head.

    - You want to return it, you don't like it ... then purchase another one. You might get hit with a restocking fee.

    - Flat out tell them the issue, dust behind an LCD can be very annoying and is a flaw more or less.

    The only legitimate complaint is dust under the glass. All ipads have flash of white on boot up. No idea why. Also, Air Video stalling is likely a slow wifi connection or a computer that's too slow to stream the video.

    actually there shouldn't be a white pixel on boot screen.
    they gave me a new iPad, this one doesn't have white pixel on boot screen, no air video problems and no dust under screen!
    I'm finally happy.

    It's not a white pixel, if we're talking about the same thing. I have TWO iPads, and both have a slight white FLASH on bootup. If it's not a dead/stuck pixel on the WHOLE time, then there was nothing wrong in that regard with your previous iPad.

    yeah its not a dead pixel its a white pixel that shows up in random places. I taped it and took the recording to a apple store, they saw it and changed it for me i ask if it was normal and they said it wasn't.

    the other ipad i had before the white pixel pad didnt do that but had yellow stains. Im just glad this last Ipad is perfect, no white pixel in boot screen, no hag ups in Air Video or Twitpad and no yellow stains.
