    I just tested mine in a dark room with a black screen. I have no issues whatsoever on my iPad3.

    It was an issue with some of the first batches of the iPad 2. Later batches did not.

    No screen bleeding on my iPad. My last iPad 2 had minor screen bleeding. I am more than impressed with the new screen.

    Fine on mine as well. I did have a bit of bleeding on the 2 but this one looks perfect.

    You should not have any bleeding at all, it's a defect.

    You have two weeks leeway to exchange at the Apple Store. I don't believe this would count against your Apple Care.

    Defects like these are covered by apples 1 year warranty and they will replace the iPad if you ask. If you have AppleCare this would not count toward your AppleCare and you will not have to pay any deductible.
