    Its official, some new iPads have problems

    Now on my 9th one and about to return that as well. Blemishes under the glass on this one AND number 8...easily demonstrated to the folks in the's becoming a personal crusade at this point.

    Its official, some new iPads have problems

    Lol, nothing is imagined here. They have the Genius Bar people look at the units I return and agree with me.

    Its official, some new iPads have problems

    Personally, I'm on my 7th new iPad, and this one's going back tonight as well. Won't accept any unit until I'm 100% happy with it....not 90%, not 95%, not 99%. Returned 3 yesterday alone...backlight bleeding, bad WiFi, and especially the home button, which seems to be a particular challenge...

    WiFi issues...time to return for refund

    The WiFi on the new iPad is extremely flaky and unreliable. While my iPad 2 is rock solid, the WiFi performance of the new iPad devolves significantly and often. When I start noticing problems, I'll go into the speedtest app and find that while the iPad 2 is sporting 30-40Mbit, the new iPad is...

    Airplay Mirroring and Real Racing II HD -- stutterfest?

    It appears that mirroring must be enabled even when the app has built in support.

    Airplay Mirroring and Real Racing II HD -- stutterfest?

    So I fired up Real Racing II HD over Airplay Mirroring last night (on the new iPad), and basically it was half ok / half slide show. The game would be smooth for 5 seconds, then 5 seconds of slide show / stuttering, then good for 5 seconds...rinse/repeat. Infinity Blade II ran just fine with...

    Returned New iPad wifi 64 gig for iPad 2 -New iPad was too hot and too heavy!

    I see all these people saying "oh, I have no heat problem on my new iPad", but seriously, I don't believe there are ANY people out there who don't have the lower left corner of the unit getting fairly warm if they run an intensive app like Infinity Blade II. So these people are either: (a)...

    How to tell if you have an iPad 3?

    I'd you find yourself using it as a hand warmer, then you have the new iPad. ;)

    iPad 2 Stare and Compare?

    I have both an iPad 2 and 3, and I'd like to know if anyone else can confirm the differences I'm seeing (and am not particularly happy with). The iPad 2 has a perfectly white background, but the iPad 3 is off-white/yellowish. Most noticeable when reading e-books, e.g. in GoodReader, Kindle...

    On 4th iPad and still not satisfied

    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...

    How will u really improve the next iPad ( not fantasy)

    Not necessarily, based on my testing. I have an iPad 2 and the new iPad here, and running the same songs/videos on one while running a db meter on the other shows a consistent 5 db lower value for the new iPad. And I do have the iPad being tested and the iPad running the meter in the same...

    iTunes Trailers horrible on new iPad compared to iPad 2

    Has anyone else noticed this? I'm doing a side-by-side Pepsi challenge with the Trailers app, and everything is very noticeably less detailed/sharp. In identical still frames, the difference is incredibly apparent. This can't be an upscaling problem.

    On 4th iPad and still not satisfied

    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...
