    I have now switched out my iPad 8 times. I originally bought from best buy and open 7 brand new machines. Each had it's own problems such as dead pixels, lifting bezel, and backlight bleeding. I finally called apple and they told me that I should not settle for it and make an appointment with the apple geniuses. So I got an apt right away (waited a bit in the store though) and showed my bleeding. He agreed and took out a brown boxed iPad that he claimed was new. So then he took me in the back and let me go into the employee bathroom to check the backlight bleeding. All I have to say is this one is near perfect. The best out of all the ones I had.
    So, keep pushing until you are happy :)
    I hope I don't see any problems later on.

    Wow! Eight times. You must have the patience of Job. Unbelievable isn't it. Apple has always been known for great build quality. I had to replace mine because of slight bleeding and a poorly fitted seam around the edge of the unit. Like your last one, my replacement came out of a brown box. Fortunately according to people here, they say it is a brand new iPad. I'm happy with mine now. I hope all this mess has not left a sour taste in your mouth for Apple (no pun intended).

    Thanks everyone :) I'm happy now. The funny thing is that all of my issues were confirmed by either best buy or apple. So it was not me being crazy and a perfectionist. I guess 8 is the lucky # lol
