    Anybody get an iPad 2 recently? Can you post how the screen is looking?


    We know Samsung is now making at least some of the screens for iPad 2's because of the lightbleed issue. I'm wondering if anyone's still getting issues or if you think the new screens look lighter?

    I read on macrumors some people were having issues with the new screens because they're color seems to be a lot less rich/lighter :confused:


    Well, I had an iPad 2 ordered on monday so ill post back how that turns out. I just hope by the next week or two Apple has this issue figured out for the perfect screen :ipad-peacock:

    cheers

    Bought two 64GB 3G black units last week. The screens are both perfect and, based on posted comparisons of LG and Samsung screens, I would guess they are LG. No leaks.

    I got one last week. It has a bit of leaking near the home button. At least the glass sits completely flush with the frame. Earlier models had problems with the glass sticking out along the bottom. I think I'll keep it.

    I got two from a Target in early April. No bleeding or leaking issues. I don't know if that's considered new but I know during that time those issues were in the news a lot.

    This is really interesting as I got mine just over a week ago and noticed really bad backlight bleeding. I researched online straight away but everyone else seemed to be having the issue but now some here are saying there's are fine.

    I'm just on the phone to Apple now, may get a replacement. Just don't want to have to wait too long for one.

    Got mine last thursday May 5th. No leakage, and I'm not looking for any. If it ain't obvious, it ain't there as far as I'm concerned.

    Got mine a week ago. I've not used it much till today but it seems to be as good as any apple stuff I've ever owned. 2 iPhones, 1 MacBook, and now iPad 2 32g wifi. I really like the app. Signmypad. I've just began setting it up today. I think I can save a few trees with this!

    Just got mine yesterday and when I played galaxy on fire it had bleeding, very disappointed with apple. Going to exchange it but if the next one has it i will just get my money back. Not worth the hassle of needing to go through multiple exchanges for the price I paid for it.

    I ordered mine on April 17th and got it last friday. Super small light leak at 100% brightness/black picture in a dark room. I have trouble even seeing it under those conditions really, so I'd say the problem is definitely fixed.

    I've had my iPad 2 for about 3 weeks and when I put it at the highest level of brightness, in a pitch black room with a black image, there is only a very very tiny leakage along the bottom near the home screen. It is only a little bit noticeable in that scenario which doesn't bother me at all because it's pretty much never a problem for me. I never have my brightness at the very highest anyway.

    I wish mine only had a "tiny bit" of the LCD bleeding, but unfortunately it's fairly obvious in 3 different places on the lower-left corner (near the home button)... I have an anti-glare cover and brightness is only 50% so if its that noticeable then that's pretty bad IMO.

    I have an appt with Apple today to get a new one ordered.

    Spoke to Apple over the phone and they are sending me a replacement. She said Apple are aware of the issue so hopefully this one will be ok.

    She said the courier will contact me soon but the new one would take a few weeks which I wasn't happy about so she said I can delay sending this one back till just before I receive the new one.

    Mine has slight bleeding near both sides of the home button, both about the size of half a nickel. Not to concern, doesn't really show when in my apps.

    When I was in the market for LCD TV's four years ago, the forums also had concerns with bleeding. Had my Samsung 52", again with very little leakage.

    I am enjoying both without thinking or bothering with these minor leaks.

    If the bleeding really bothers you, then by all means return it.
