    When youre on the web and even after its finished loading you scroll and get he checkerboard effect? it is, on every single ipad 2 ive owned. If you can let me know, it would be much great.

    News to me. I've had the iPad, iPad2 and now the New iPad and have never experienced what you describe.

    It was removed in iOS 5 I believe. So its not the new hardware but software, update your current ipads and you shouldn't see the checkerboard

    Yes that has been corrected. If you go to scrolling on a large web page before it is finished and you scroll too fast you may get a blank white page briefly but you've really gotta try to do that and you've gotta search for some intensive page for that to happen.

    It cant be the IOS, i get it on mine even well after pages are loaded and running ios5. Ive seen it on every single ipad 2 ive used, and thats about 12-15. You dont know how ****** annoying this is. Makes you feel like you own a cheap device with inferior technology.

    So I basically have to buy ipad 3 if I dont want this. :thumbsdown:

    If your iPad is updated to IOS 5 then yes I agree that it must be a new iPad thing because like you I have experienced it as well on both the original iPad as well as my iPad 2. It is common and for anyone who has never experienced it, just scroll faster! Quit doing the Steve Jobs finger on page and gently slide down and place your finger on the page and slide it fast as though you are in a huge hurry to get to the bottom.

    You'll get the checkerboard on the iPad 1 & 2 but I really haven't seen it on the new iPad. Now maybe others will chime in and either verify this info or shoot it down!

    The pathetic thing is that i dont even have to scroll a lot or fast to get it. I can do a quick tap and itll checker everytime and delay 1-2 secs like if this was a Commodore 64 from the 1990s. Like seriously Apple? Its absolutely unacceptable for any ipad to have this. I was this close to throwing my ipad 2 out the window cause the checkerboarding can get that bad at times.

    My speeds are fine.

    Try engadget and meetup.com Wait till they fully load and do slow and fast, small and big up and down scrolls.

    How long you had the ipad 3 for?
