    I'm one of those suckers who loves new gadgets, especially the iPads. I currently have an iPad original, but the specs and cams of the second one are really tempting me. Though there are a few turnoffs, mainly the bleeding screen and no jailbreak. Are there any other major issues that the iPad 2 may have that you've noticed?

    Also, did they ever address the bleeding screen issue? Or are the ipad2s still being ordered have a bleeding screen?

    Not on mine.

    Yup, no JB, but I never JB anyway. Bleeding screen? A small bit on mine, but hardly noticeable unless pointed pit, and not worth the headache over.

    Biggest issue my ipad2 gives me? Grief off my wife for not giving her number 1 attention anymore.

    Its more than I ever hoped for. Had it 2-3 months and still loving every single second I spend on it.

    My only gripe if any? I type so fast that after I type a load of text and read it back, if i made a typo the iPad self corrects in the most irritating ways. Yes, I can switch off self correction, but id be in an even worse state then. Actually, this is my problem, not the iPads fault.

    We have three in our family, all 64 gb wifi. None of us have experienced any bleeding or any other issues. Only problem is that they are addictive and we cannot put them down.

    I've had my iPad for roughly 3 weeks and have absolutely no complaints (no backlight bleeding either!) And never fear about the jb - I'm certain there's something on the horizon (have a look in the hacking section, you'll find more info there.)

    As with sjleworthy, the only issue is with my other half - there really should be a support group for iPad widows/widowers. ;)

    Bleeding screen? Sounds painful. I've had mine for about 6 weeks and love it. Screen is perfect. I did have it acting up once. A simple reboot and I was back in business. It's a computer after all. ;)

    I don't think no JB is a turnoff, hackers will always find their way. BTW, i also got my ipad2, just 16gb wifi model, used for schooling purposes only, and have a small bit of screen bleeding but hardly noticeably, that's why i think it's not worth it to return it to Apple.

    Two here, 64/3G. No issues, other than the fact that they're so great they're hard to put down. Had a Xoom before...did not feel that way about it... :(

    Actually, that definitely IS the iPads fault.

    My ipad2 has by FAR and away the worst word prediction/spelling correction of any device I own. The "smart keyboards" in my android devices are so superior to the iPad KB it is absolutely night and day.

    It's a shame you can't get it to 'learn' like you can with other systems and dictionaries

    My biggest complaint is the small active touch area required for certain actions. One of the first things I did was DL several different free Apps to use in helping me learn the UI and it is never intuitive exactly where you should tap the screen to activate whatever the current program needs. All to often, I end up scrolling the screen instead of initiating some action.

    I have no problems with my wife, as I got her one too. ;)

    Great device

    I've got iPad and iPad2. Great devices but iPad2 rocks. I've never had any issues.

    Having a ton of time on many Android devices and now about a month on the iPad2, I have to agree very much with the post below. It is probably the one issue where *in my opinion* Android is ahead of the iOS devices. Gimme my SwiftKey app, pleeeeeze. :)

    I've had my iPad 2 for about a month and can't put it down. I really didn't think I would like it as much as I do. I'm a windows person. just bought a brand new Sony Vaio and never use it any more. I use my iPad for business, reading, social media, email, you name it. I'm obsessed, felt so bad for my husband I bought him one this week.
    My screen is perfect, his is a little yellow but no bleeding issues. Perhaps the only annoying thing is the keyboard correction and not having any arrow keys, but I can actually type pretty fast on it.
    I think it will replace laptops eventually. it is just so quick and easy for everything and light weight. I use a keyboard for any serious typing.
    I have a 64gb with Verizon but never use that. my husband has a 32gb wifi only.
    My husband loves it just as much as I do.

    My iPad 2 has minor bleeding (visible only under circumstances I will never use it in) and its screen is decidedly yellow (compared with my iPad 1).

    I actually prefer the yellow, though, because it lets my 2 go much dimmer than my 1. With 1, I had to switch to the Atomic browser at night, because it has a lower brightness setting than Safari.

    I checked my husband's iPad 1, and his screen is yellowish, too. His is 32GB wi-fi only.

    Both of mine are 64GB 3G AT&T.

    Just like most of the people in this thread. I've had my iPad 2 for over a month now and it's running great no bleeding or anything. Only thing that could be better is the camera quality. Other than that I'm checking everyday for a jailbreak. Once o jailbreak my iPad than the iPad is complete :)
