    If there is very little esp near volume rocker and you can live with it...I would keep it as long no dead pixels...Your next one could be worst!

    I think its ok if its only a small shining, but i saw vids where people had a real white beam coming out of the side.

    Guess the shining i would treat as normal.

    Bump, lets keep this going, if we can get 100 people to respond it will be statistically significant.

    I got very few bleed, i dont really notice it unless i really gonna have a look at it.

    Its at the the side where the home button is, ita a small edge lighting up a little, but nothing really annoying.

    It changes when i press the side, maybe its the glue, still not dry. Will have a look at it here and there

    My 3G version does have quite a bit of bleed on a dark background. It was the first thing I noticed after unpacking.

    There is white light shining through in multiple sections on the lower edge and in one spot on the upper edge.

    Well i wouldnt say that. The poll needs more options. Especially to define between none and a little. Technically as the results stand you could says 12 wifi users all have no bleed OR little bleed since there were not two options.

    Im not knocking it, just saying for a true survey you need a lot more data points.

    I assume you ride a motorcycle, same here.

    Geez man, thats hardcore.

    Why dont you just wait a month or two? You have 90 days before the warranty is up. Life is too short to waste it standing in line.

    I think people are panicking for a little to no reason.
    I had my iPad 1 for a year and never noticed it's "bleeding", until they day I put it on eBay. Yeah there was a little edge bleed on it, I consider it normal for LCD screens. My white WiFi iPad 2 also bleeds about same amount of light on one edge by the button.

    So I was trying to make a comparison, being fairly confident that the iPad 1 didn't have this issue. But boy was I wrong.

    The left image is from iPad 2 and the right one from iPad 1, both set to 100% brightness. And the last one in direct comparison, still the i2 being on the left. The iPad 1's screen bleeding is much more widespread, whereas the iPad 2 has more intense bleeding spots.

    Perhaps someone else could post a comparison shot? Should I get the iPad 1 replaced too, or is that much bleeding normal?
