    Load a black background as a photo to view full screen. Get in a dark room. If you see any light bleeding along the edges, then you have the issue. However, I had this on my first iPad 2 and didn't worry about it at all because I could not even see it if anything is lit up on the screen. Typically, that is way brighter than the backlight bleed.

    I checked my iPad3, I don't have any issues. It is more uniform than my first iPad2 was. However, this works on a case-by-case basis, so you have to check yours. But even if you do have some backlight bleed, don't freak out. It may or may not be a problem. You should consider if it hinders you in anyway. If the backlight bleed means that you can't enjoy watching movies on your iPad because of this extra light, then return it to apple for a replacement. But if you can't even notice it on the darker scences in movies (when it is more likely to be noticable), then don't worry yourself.

    I will tell you it doesnt have bleeing problems..Why would you even jump to this conclusion unless you are a very pesimistic guy??? You have nothing to worry about. I have had the issue on my iPad2 but the new iPad is perfect. (I checked). Might there be one out of a million with a back light bleeding problem???? Sure it might happen and some here have gotten one but Apple doesn't want to go through this agin like they did with the iPad2. I honestly never noticed bleeding on my iPad2 unless I was really looking for it. The bleeding under extreme lighting conditions never effected the performance of my last iPad2. If I look for it I can still find it but it never was a issue.
