    I've returned 3 units to the store today, and now I'm looking at taking back the 4th one as well.

    The home button on the first three was not flush with the surface, and now the 4th one has a distinctly lower maximum sound volume than my iPad 2.

    Has anyone noticed a sound problem with this new iPad?

    I'm playing back music, videos etc., and those whom I've demonstrated this to all agree that the sound on the iPad 2 is louder and more robust.

    I first noticed it with the keyboard clicks, which were definitely of lower volume than the iPad 2.

    And yes, I have both units at maximum volume. :)

    Thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Very strange. I haven't noticed any of these issues. Volume sounds great on mine. If you have already played around with the settings and volume rocker I'm not sure there is anything else it could be...

    Can't say I've had an issue with volume on my one, however it IS being returned because of bad pixels... ...but 4 returns for you, wow!

    Although, knowing my luck, I'll end up with a worse replacement and wished I kept the old defective one...lol

    Perhaps others may have had sound issues, but not me.

    Best of luck - hope you get a good one before hitting double figures on those returns...hehe

    You don't have to look hard for dead pixels. They're pretty easy to spot. They're black or white dots on your screen.

    I went into sounds and turned off EQ after trying a bunch of options with music playing as I think the music was 2x as loud with EQ off.

    Holy cow, four returns?! You have to be happy with your purchase, though. That's a shame there's not better quality control for the batch you're getting. Mine came in the mail and is absolutely pristine in every way.

    No issues or problems here either. In fact, I had backlight bleeding on my 2 and basically just dealt with it (you get used to it!) but none whatsoever with this one.

    Why should I give Apple $750 for a device I am not 100% satisfied with?

    I have an iPad 2, and it's perfect. I have been very happy with it since last May, and it only took 2 returns to get it. The first had a dead pixel and the second had some backlight bleeding.

    But this new iPad has a slew of different issues...home button not flush with the glass, slightly yellowish tint on backgrounds that are supposed to be pure white, and lower maximum volume level than the iPad 2.

    Or maybe like the antenna issue with the iPhone 4, I'm just "holding it the wrong way", lol.
