    Hey there,

    After my previous thread where I mentioned my first 'New iPad' seemed to have a yellow tinge, and after comparing it with my brothers iPad and taking it into the Apple store it was confirmed. They replaced it with a refurb as and that one had issues. I then had it replaced again, and I've taken some pics comparing it with my brothers iPad.

    I need another pair of eyes to help me judge, as I've been staring at iPad screens the past couple of days, I can't tell which seems most accurate. What do you think of my screen? Is this one worthy of keeping? I kinda need a pretty decent display as I plan on using my iPad as a digital portfolio to show of my work for job interviews.

    There is nothing wrong with your display. In fact, in terms of blacklight bleed, it is better than your brothers.

    Frankly, I'm not sure why you expect more.

    Well the first one I had was noticeably yellow, which I why I had it replaced. I just wanted to make sure my colours/whites etc looked right, and the brightness was good. After my first iPad and that having an issue, I just wanted to make sure I'd swapped it for a decent one.

    Got some comparison shots. My iPad is always on the right.

    What, really? They're both defective/bad? Hmm.

    one appears to have a slight pink hue, the other one has backlight bleed. i thought that meant they were defective?
