Hello! I have been following the whole blacklight bleed story since the beginning. I live in Europe and I was actually quite scared about it, since I am planning to buy one this friday. Reading and reading, most of the posts say that all iPads have it and the pictures actually look REALLY BAD. They also say that all LCD screens have it, etc. How comes then that I have never had this problem before?? Well, I did a little experiment: I have a Macbook since 2 years ago and I am really happy with it. I never had any problems and I WATCH MOVIES WITH FULL BRIGHTNESS IN THE DARK all the time. Of course I have never seen anything wrong and I still don´t. So what I did: I took my macbook to a 100% dark room and I covered the logo. I made some pictures with my IPHONE 3G. and what was my surprise???? I guess I MUST HAVE A HUGE BLACKLIGHT BLEEDING PROBLEM!!! My screen looks awful!! MUCH WORSE than most of the iPad2 pictures that I have seen. Does it mean that I have a problem?? NO. I haven´t noticed anything in two years so it is not a problem, and I still do not notice it at all. What it comes from all of this is that: 1: I am sure that there are iPads with a big blacklight bleed problem but it is not as extended as it seems. 2: You cannot trust the pictures that are posted because in a normal use you cannot even see "the blacklight bleed". 3: Do not worry if you are going to buy an iPad 2, buy it if you want, and if you notice that you have a problem then you send it back, but not be scared because you have read that there is a "blacklight problem". Cheers! Here are the pictures of my "awful macbook"
