    This whole issue of Backlight Bleeding being there / not there as reported by a couple of people here has put me in a strange Dilemma, What I am thinking now,is do I get thing done or not ? I was gonna get the New iPad from the U.S from one of my friend and since a lot of people here have suggested that it is because the Glue has not dried which was used to stick the display screens to the panel maybe that is causing it and once it is dried up it will, maybe not there and since Apple had to rush out urgent stocks it never had the time to let this thing happen. So what I was thinking was, maybe this is a problem with newer stocks and as and when we get into the 2nd phase of stocks which will likely hit my country as my country's name does not appear in the first nor second list of countries where the iPad-3 has been released as of now, this will also give some time to get into the 2nd Phase of stocks which will be all ready with the problem having been overcome and that would have also given it time to dry up.

    So does it make more sense to wait till the iPad-3 is officially released in my country in another 2 months time, that way it will also give some time to overcome this problem, if at all it is there ?

    Judging from your posts, you seem to have a lot of angst about buying. I'd suggest you wait till they sell in your country. That way, you can closely inspect iPads before you buy one.

    There are invariably going to be some iPads that have probs. Depends whether you can live with some probs vs. others.

    For instance, some iPads have yellower screens than others, unrelated to glue. My iPad 1 screen is true white. My husband's iPad 1 is yellowish. My iPad 2 is yellowish. All three are evenly white or yellowish (across entire screen; not blotchy). We don't have a prob with the yellowish screens; I actually prefer yellowish. The three iPads have looked the same since purchase about one to two years ago.

    Also, all three iPads have some backlight leaking, but we'd have to crank brightness to max and sit in a dark room to see the leaks, so it's not a prob.

    Chances are, there will be minor variations in many iPads, and it sounds like you would angst about that.

    Yes I am anxious, so I am trying to educate myself so that I get the best deal, product and model out of my first ever iPad. I am extremely excited about it and I wanna buy a flawless one. It is a reasonable huge investment also for me so trying to get every worth of my money.

    Yes, so probably best you buy when you can inspect in person and pick one that you're happy with.

    Depends on customer service in your country. In the U.S., some Apple customers have asked to open one iPad after another, and some have made repeated exchanges.

    So coming back to my original question does it make sense to wait for the Official Launch of iPad-3 in my country so I can get a second batch of stocks of iPad-3 which would be a batch possibly not got out of the manufacturing line in haste ?? and hence free of the Backlighting issue and many other possible issues which have not surfaced so far ?

    As the more time passes by, people will have more clearer picture on, if there are any other issues aswell associated with it ?

    If you are able to buy one and return it you may aswell take the plunge as you would always be able to return it if you was not happy with it, but it's like a lot of things electrical you always get the odd one or two with problems.
