even after a sync this morning... WTF?
Are you syncing to a pc or a Mac?
Check your timezone?
Huh? How would that make a difference.. besides, the timezone is accurate
Mac, and the Mac has the right time

Seems a lot of people are having time/clock issues with their iPads? Bit of a worry. Would mess up calendar/todo notifications too. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Have fixed it several times, it doesn't stay accurate
Return it to the Apple store is my suggestion
No problem here.
What if I got it at Best Buy? Will they exchange it?
I believe so, if not talk to the manager there and be polite.
A simple restore should fix the issue.
As celticpride678 says, try restoring. However, as other people have reported similar problems, it might be an actual firmware problem, in which case you will have to wait for a fix from Apple.
The clock will drift over time, just like any digital clock. The solution, for networked computers anyway, is NTP. The iPad has no facility to sync its clock -- whether with an NTP source or any other source, AFAIK. Our iPhone's clocks are correct because they automagically pull the time from cell towers.
He said it was just after syncing, for the time should at least be synced with the Mac.
Mine has always been correct.
I've seen enough of the "wrong time" threads to believe there is a defective component in those iPads. The company assembling the iPads may have gotten a single batch of defective parts which ended up in a subset of the iPads out there. Take the iPad back. Make them prove to you the clock keeps time in a new one before taking it home.
NTP is an Internet protocol and should work spiffy with the iPad when it's connected to the Internet via WiFi, just like it does with any other laptop or desktop, Apple or other brand. Cell towers are not needed in any way.
I have noticed some minor time drifting on my iPad - just a couple minutes fast on my iPad.
I tried a full power cycle thinking that perhaps Apple put an NTP sync function into the power up items, doesn't look like it.
Odd that this functionality is missing, perhaps they couldn't stuff it into the original release for some reason.
My clock works perfectly.
Just a thought; turn off auto sync, manually set the time to several hours off, then reboot, then turn on autosync again. This has worked for me on those rare occasions when my MacBook's clock drifted.
