    I finally got home and gave it a full inspection under my bright lamps looking for damage or dings. I ran a series of color pattern tests checking for lint, abnormal light bleed, dead pixels, or banding along the left side some folks have said they had. It checked out perfectly fine. Same for the gyroscope.

    I can finally enjoy it in peace really happy w/ my purchase. Good luck guys!!

    First one had a black speck under the glass.

    This one has two faint shadowy bands going across the screen and a dead pixel.

    This is so frustrating.

    Going back again to the store tomorrow and trying again. They are probably sold out now though.

    Everything is A-OK on my 32GB Black Verizon Air.

    Immediately setup a free 200MB T-Mobile plan on it.

    Perfect. Leaps and bounds better than my iPad 3.

    Okay, as a virgin ipad user (lord that sounds silly), what all should I be looking for?

    To my untrained eye, so far, everything looks fine. Went into a dark room and didn't see any light leaks (if I did that right) & don't think I see the left side shadow column peops have mentioned. Already checked for dings on the casing while at the Apple store & it's all good. No clue what this pink/green/weird screen color is some have reported.

    Anything else I should check?

    Some of you are freaking insane with a dash of hospital grade OCD.

    I just took my air out of the box, did a 5 minute inspection and I am good to go.

    As long as there isn't a defect that I can notice under normal use, why do I need "more"?

    Will you really use your iPad under the extreme conditions that you use to test? No. And if you do, you may need something other than a tablet....
