Finally have an ipad2. Best buy was my store to buy (gift card bound), and it took weeks to get one. First one, light bleed heavy on three corners and sides.
What is light bleed? Scan this thread at MacRumors for many stories, but it’s light appearing from the edges and corners when the screen should be black.
So the store got more weeks later and what do you know another bleeder! So this time I took it back and luckily they had some still there. This time I checked it before I left, and slight bleed on one corner but too little to worry about.
Yes I paid over 700 for a device with flaws. But I think they have an insoluble problem or it’s not worth fixing because new model(s) are coming. If I were Apple I would not want to invest much if many people just let it go or don’t notice it.
But to be clear mine was quite noticeable. If you don’t believe me, it did pass the wife test, which is the theory that if she notices something that I would be picky about, it’s not picky anymore!
That said I can see why people love this device, it’s very polished. If this one had been bad I would have been tempted quite a bit by the new Galaxy Tab 10.1.
