    The some of the website features some random facts, news, reviews, and commentaries about the generation of Ipad. And being the latest, Ipad 2 now creates larger waves than the original one. Makes sense, though. But what’s more surprising is the growing list of criticisms about where Ipad 2 has skyrocketed from our expectations, and where the ‘revolutionary’ Apple product has fallen flat on the floor.

    Here’s the top 10 list of Ipad 2 problems users complain about, ranging from glitches to major defects:

    1. Cancelled Orders
    2. Backlight Bleeding
    3. Yellowing of the Screen
    4. Wi-Fi Issues
    5. FaceTime Freezing
    6. Microphone Distortion
    7. Speaker Quirks
    8. Mysterious Heat
    9. Poor Quality Camera
    10.No improvement on screen resolution

    Among the list which one did you encounter or you're still dealing with. And how did you fix that problems?

    1. Orders were filled in timely manner.
    2. Don't have it.
    3. Screen seems to be normal color.
    4. Wi-fi works great.
    5. I've seen some ugly faces on there, but no frozen ones.:p
    6. Sounds ok for a tablet mic.
    7. Added Soundjaw and quirks went away.;)
    8. Haven't burned myself yet.:D
    9. See #6.
    10. Resolution is still the same as when I bought it.

    I guess I'm just lucky.:)

    Only things I've encountered don't bother me:

    Minor backlight bleeding is visible only cranked to full brightness and in a totally dark room. I don't use my iPads in such conditions and wouldn't have ever discovered bleeding if I hadn't gone looking, after reading complaints.

    My iPad 2 is yellowish and dimmer than my iPad 1. The funny thing is, I prefer the dimmer yellowishness.

    To be honest, I was one of the people that said the iPad 1 sorely needed cameras. Now that I've had the iPad 2 since launch, I probably have taken 3 photos with it. It's just not a photo taking device, and I don't need a badass camera on there. I'd rather it be as slim as it is than have a better camera and be thicker.

    Some of the items on this list are completely new to me - speaker quirks? Mysterious heat? Microphone distortion?

    I'd be interested to see the website or review where these were cited.

    My ipad2 and past and present Apple experiences has been faultless.

    Well, tell a lie, if anything there is a minimal light leak around part of 1 edge, but it's not noticeable.

    You would do better to make a separate post in the Hacking section. Hijacking a thread means this post probably won't get noticed, so you won't get much response to your problem. Delete your post and start a new thread in the Hacking section on this issue.

    I am still have wifi issues & am close to throwing this thing out the window. I have to log off/on about every 4 or 5 Internet pages. It's the most frustrating thing I've ever encountered. I've done all the tricks, like changing brightness, etc.

    Have you tried exchanging it for new unit? Does the device work okay on other wifi networks?

    1. Cancelled Orders
    - have not had this problem
    2. Backlight Bleeding
    - none that i've seen
    3. Yellowing of the Screen
    - none yet
    4. Wi-Fi Issues
    - perfect with wi-fi no issues, multiple connections made
    5. FaceTime Freezing
    - dont use it, no issue for me
    6. Microphone Distortion
    - none I've experienced
    7. Speaker Quirks
    - no problems here
    8. Mysterious Heat
    - heat is part of anything with a processor in it, but it does
    not bother me
    9. Poor Quality Camera
    - looks fine to me, if I want quality pictures I grab a digital camera
    designed for it, not the iPad
    10.No improvement on screen resolution
    - iPad 3 promises this, iPad2 did not

    Most of this is blowing smoke, and non issues.

    You should link the source I have a feeling that there not
    Apple friendly in first place.

    Most of the yellowing of the screen is caused by the adhesive not having enough time to cure. That is a side effect of the speed at which the units were being shipped out.
