    Just interested in how bright every one sets their iPad to.

    I personally set my brightness pretty much full (or about 1cm from the top)1. Its my home device and wont get much use other than in the evenings, so battery isn't really an issue for me.

    I'm intrigued by others thoughts though.

    About 60% for me too. Near full is way to bright for my tastes. The auto brightness works very well.

    Probably right around 45-50%.

    Also of note - I've not felt the iPad get warm on the back like many have been reporting. Whether this is related to brightness settings is something I can't confirm right now. Just speculation on my part.

    I have mine max all the time, except for when I wake up to check an email or notification, then it goes down to the lowest!

    I have mine abot 1/5 of the way up for normal in home viewing, why does everybody crank the brightness way up?

    Mine sits about 65-70%. Yesterday my eyes started hurting after using it on default for four hours.

    Ever since the inception of the original iPhone, I have trusted the ambient light sensor to do it's job.

    Just what I was thinking, I'm very similar to you on brightness

    I'm actually glad on the new iPad that the brightness at the bottom level is lower than the iPad 2, because I always found that a little to bright for reading at night and first thing in the morning

    Please, people. Basic grammar. Especially in thread titles.

    "What's your brightness level set to?"

    I kept my iPad 2 set around 50% but I find the new iPad to be a bit darker and have set it to 60% or so.

    I had mine set at about 70% on my iPad 2 but the new iPad is considerably less bright so I have to move it up to about 90%.

    I would say mine is a little under 50% usually. Once in a while I will turn it up to about 75% or so... Just depends what I am doing and how much light is around me when using it.

    That grammar is something up with which I will not put!:eek:

    Brightness set to about 30-35%. The iPad is used in a dimly lit room by a dimly lit user.:p

    Don't correct people's grammar. You will get a PM From a moderator stating that you're a bad, bad man.

    I got one yesterday.

    ROLFMAO...That reminds me of the scene in "She Devil" where Meryl Streep's German maid quits in a huff, "Up with this sh** I will not put!"

    About 55%. Don't want to have eyes tired after an hour of using an iPad.
