I think you are looking into to it WAY to hard..... LolOriginally Posted by overthetop75
I tend to find that it can take me a 2 or 3 days before I can 100% say everythings okay, by that I mean, it can take a couple of days before somethings gets noticed.
When I tried my new iPad3 later on Friday 16th the release day, everything seemed fine.. I gave the screen a good check, for bad pixels, everything looked 100% ok, but over the weekend I spotted a small 1mm spec of dust (under the screen glass), showing up on the screen like a tiny short hair 2" in from the side, and once I knew where to look it was easy to spot, especially on white or light grey screens, you could barely see it on other colours or anything else.
So how come it took me almost 2 days to notice it... very strange, but like a bad pixel... once you know where it is.. you can't stop looking at it...lol
It got changed today, and this one seems okay, though it does have very minor light bleed in couple of places, but for normal brightness levels it's not visible at all, infact I checked my iPad1 today which I've had for well over a year without any issues at all, and was surprised to see that it actually has slightly worse backlight bleed than this iPad3, and I wasn't even aware it had any at all...lol So perhaps we need to ask the question.. were you happy with your new toy and enjoying it before you started reading about other users iPad faults and comments that they were allegedly having...

You have to take into consideration the lighting conditions you are viewing you're iPad in too.
It would be nice if apple offered some kind of screen calibration option... But I'm not too bothered, that's what my MacBook is for.
BTW, I am keeping my one to replace my aging Touch. I wiped it and added back Rhapsody, Pandora and my music and all my downloaded music from Rhapsody for offline playing. So much easier to search, make playlists, etc in Rhapsody AND I have the 10 hour plus battery. It does much better than that too when just streaming.
i was at first under impressed with the white balance of the photos as well. I noticed in settings that Auto Brightness was set to On. I switched it to Off and that helped.
I'm not sure if it can simply be done in a future iOS upgrade without hardware modification, but if it were possible, it would certainly be nice to have.
My white balance and colour on my iPad 3 looks pretty good to me, but we are not all the same, some people like warmer pictures while others like a cooler look, so colour control would be a plus for everyone, including Apple, as they would'nt get so many Ipads returned with white balance issues.
