    Just picked up the new iPad2....there is slight bleed through on the very right side edge...about half way up the screen. I've seen a few vids on this...mine is very slight but still there. Not noticeable unless you have dark screen displaying....reminiscent of the iMac yellow screen phenomenon...I'm gonna hang tough a while and see what happens....

    I have a bit that I noticed when I was watching Netflix. It's not very bad though.

    So what is Apple's current stance on the light bleed?

    If you buy from them (shop or online) and your not happy with the light bleed, do they replace it for you if you take it to an Apple store or....?

    No problems at all with mine
    From what I've read thus far, it goes away on its own. A sealant/glue issue.

    I'm on my second iPad to date, first one returned with excessive bleed, the second has the same bleed and two dead pixels. They swapped the unit with no problems whatsoever. They simply made a report of the fault and swapped. I think I'm now going to return the second iPad and wait to see if later batches are of a different standard.

    I'm a bit confused, does the yellowing or the bleeding go away after a while? I have some slight bleeding in the lower left corner and upper left corner. it's not really noticeable unless the screen is dark. Should I wait and see if it goes away? I haven't even taken the plastic off (i'm waiting to buy a screen protector)

    As I understand it, the issue goes away on its own. I don't have mine yet, though; I'd do a quick Google search and then judge.

    The light issue has nothing to do with the glue drying and no, it won't go away. If you're unhappy with it i'd return it/exchange it. Im waiting to get a third replacement due to severe light bleed issues.

    It sounds like the issue is widespread. If I exchange mine, it sounds like I'd have a good chance of getting another bleeder, perhaps a worse one. Should i exchange mine anyway? I'd like to. If i pay this much money, i should get a quality product, but I don't want to do it more than once.

    I would exchange it definitely. Like you said, you've paid a fair amount for it so it better be satisfactory.

    I have been told to wait two weeks before exchanging again in the hope that there will be a better batch of stock it but I am doubtful.

    I am going to keep exchanging it until I get one that doesn't have it.

    Do you guys all have the white one? So far, out of the 5 iPad 2s we have at work, only one of the white ones has this issue...

    Mine's black...as mentioned in the initial post mine is very slight...since nothing's perfect ..I'm ok with it...I can't notice it at all during normal operation and is mildly visible under full brightness and darkest conditions...

    I just returned mine (I got a black one from the online store, and returned it to the store in the mall). They gave me a gift card for the amount, and said they get new shipments daily (I think they meant new merchandise, not specifically ipads), but I think they said I couldn't exchange the next one if it has problems, though I don't think that's true.

    My question is what is the likelihood that I'll get another (perhaps worse) bleeder, or one with dead pixels or other issues. I just don't know. I suppose I could ask to confirm the quality of the ipad before taking it home?
