    My iPad has two dead/stuck pixels. Very hard to notice and really not much of an issue. I am just curious if any of you have it. Mine are extremely hard to even see when trying, but there none the less.

    Nope. None here. You should take it to apple and tell them that it annoys you and maybe you can get a replacement

    My first iPad had some dust/debris under the screen which i thought was dead pixels at first. The genius looked at it with a eye thingy (like a doc would look at your ear with) and determined it was aluminum dust. They replaced it with a new one right then and there. I was very happy with apples service!

    I don't see any dead pixels with my iPad. Maybe it needs repair somehow. But if it does not bother you, then why should you let yourself worry for something like that?

    As dumb and petty as it sounds, now that I have noticed it, I keep looking at it. Mine I cannot see in dark backgrounds but on white its there. So browsing the web etc is annoying.

    My appt is tomorrow now so we shall see how it goes. If they want to give me a new one in its place, I am not going to say no. But I am more going to see what they do as opposed to demanding a new one.

    Apple stands behind their products, they're pretty awesome like that.
