    I suppose so but you shouldn't have to put up with it! This is an expensive piece of equipment and I'm sure SJ wouldn't put up with it. Let's hope you are happy now.

    I just dont get it, where is the quality control for ipad 2? i thought we were past the phase when they were first coming out? seriously....no reason anyone should have to exchange 3 times to find one thats good! And the one i have now still has 2 dust specs under the screen.

    I think maybe you should just forget the ipad and get a different device?

    Am I being too picky with my ipad 2 or would you be the same?

    So I exchanged my ipad 2 this morning and ran into this completely unessecary circus. I thought the quality control of the ipad has been fixed since its launch?

    - first ipad, has 3 big dust particles under the screen so i swap it out
    - second ipad has 2 scratches on the screen and scratches under the screen in the corner so i swap it out....again!
    - third ipad has a dent in the glass screen, could even feel it when i run my nail over it so i swap it out .....AGAIN!
    - fourth one (which i have now) has 2 small dust specs under the screen near the left side. I havent even checked for dead pixels yet or backlight bleed or flashlighting or stuck pixels or uneven backlight cause its charging at home right now.

    Im very dissapointed, having to make not 1, not 2 but 3 trips back to the store to swap it out. And my current one still has 2 dust specs under the screen, though theyre minor compared to the first ipad i had.


    The store clerks were saying im way too over picky and even OCD about this and that i should just live with it. Im like really? Sure im embarassing myself by swapping out so many times but i dont care. Would you settle for a $600 device with a dent in the screen? Ya thats right didnt think so, so dont say i should just live with it. Do you think i am too picky?

    You are not picky, I would've done the same thing. My own is $1000+.
    Just so you know though, although you bought elsewhere, you can also go to an apple store for any help.

    If you have 4.3.3, that is jailbreakable.

    poser what the hell has happened to apples quality control? seriously, 5 ipads now and all literally had either scratches, dents, dead pixels or what not. My new one i just did a full dead pixel test on it and it has a bright blue stuck or dead pixel. Plus the 2 small dust particles on the left side. But really im not gonna bother going back again, this is just ridiculous all the running around i had to do this morning. I shouldnt have to inspect the thing when i buy it.

    With that being said im going to call apple tech support tommorow and mention this to them and ask what they can do to compensate me. How about sending me a free ipad 2 for all this hocus pocus running around?

    aren't the units manufactured in cleanrooms, where dust is almost nil?

    apple should hire you for quality control, you have an eye for physical defects.

    your next issue would probably be backlight bleeding. brace up for it...

    I have one comment I really donot understand your issue I have more than 400 iPad 2 with clients all whom are over the moon with the quality control and how good the iPad is. Apart from 2 and I mean 2 iPads that I replaced because of a faulty home switch non have any of the issues you complain about. If I recall you have gone through this replacement issue with every type of tab you purchased so my suggestion is go buy a Acer tab...... or Asus or Toshiba. They are perfect NOT .... Whoops did I say that.

    I suggest you give up and get a pen and pencil and a tablet to write on. .
