    If you hold it in landscape with the home button at the right, the lightness should come from the bottom, as if it's shooting up...I was wondering if anyone had this? I keep seeing videos of this, and wanted to know if this is something that is common?

    Edit : Screen has to be dark or black, best idea is cover your camera and take a pic, and view full screen, no apple controls, that way...best possibility you might see it, or black screen on beginning of a movie...

    Tell more about the model you have.

    I have a 64gb Wifi only model, white.... no light leakage

    I have the 16GB Wi-Fi only in black. There is some light leakage near the top right of the screen (portrait mode) near the volume controls. It's only noticeable on a black screen and even then not that much.

    I'm happy about this, I swapped out my iPad 1 twice for similar little defects.

    mine is still on order, it's a common issue, I wanted to see how many have...model doesn't matter, and you can only see this on black images...

    experts who have reviewed this already say if you aren't particular you probably won't see it...

    I'm very particular as I use my iPad as a photo portfolio. I see no leakage at all on a totally black frame viewed in the dark. Those who have the problem should exchange, though I doubt it would ever show on "real" images.

    I have a White 32gb wifi and noticed some light leak in the upper left corner in portrait when loading a game. Then put a black background and noticed a little more light leak on the bottom left. I'm going to call Apple tomorrow morning to see what they say.

    I too am experiencing the same issue. I have approximately 9 spots. I'm usually not that picky but I dont know what my options are in terms of exchange. I purchased the ipad 2 at target. Will Apple take over from here? or will Target be in charge of the replacement?

    There have been a few reportings of this problem, but not many. Probably has to do with some initial quality control issues of any new tech device. Return it for a replacement.

    Target...I'd return it, and go buy it at apple...it's ALWAYS the store until the warranty kicks in...when it's manufacturer warranty, it's the store, when it's extended warranty it becomes apple...

    Target isn't bad, but apple would be ignorant to not stand by their product, especially a multi billion dollar a year revenue source

    Doesn't sound like it's too much of an issue with too many people, but I'm extremely particular, I mean I'm spending 830$ on this, the money isn't the issue, I just want it to be right, as promised, from day one..
