I know this has been mentioned a thousand times, but I can't seem to get an iPad without the yellow hue.

A friend of mine told me (an engineer for vizio if it's worth anything) says the yellow hue is caused by magnets, I don't know if it's because I have a Verizon 4g Verizon or not (64gb)

I'm on my 5th iPad (I know i know, I'm a little anal) but I feel spending close to a grand on something its gotta be perfect right? Especially from apple.

The first 2 had light leakage and dead pixels and yellow hue the last 3 had yellow hues. I've kept them all for a week or so trying to see if the yellow dissipates a little with no luck.

So I'm returning it this time for a gift card and hopefully I can purchase one in a few weeks with all the bug worked out.. And I'll take the hit on the 50 bucks I spent on Verizon's 5gb plan.

What do I guys think?
Thanks.

I don't have iPad yellow tint, so I'm curious. How does it impact the use of the iPad? Or is it the color only that you don't like and feel you can't get used to?

What a bummer:( you need to be happy with your purchase. Luckily, I haven't had any issues with mine (32gb wifi) but if I were spending close to a grand, I would want it to be perfect. Like you said, you may be a bit anal but oh well! Good luck and I hope you finally get lucky and buy one with no flaws.

It's function is perfect, and Ignoring the yellow hue, the screens beautiful.

But put it this way, what if u spent 850 dollars on a set of tires for your shinny waxed up car only to find out one has a hole in the side wall? Sure, they probably could patch it up and it would work and you could get use to it, but why wouldn't you ask for a replacement? wouldn't it bother you a little knowing you have a patched up tire?

The yellow hue is on the top right portion of my screen. If it was uniform, maybe I could get used to it. But it's really obvious I have a problem. And it's something I can't get used to.
and I envy you won the apple iPad 3 lotto :)

Oh question,

The last time I went to exchange my iPad, I got a "brown box" iPad (refurb?)..
I don't know how this works now that I want to return it.

The serial numbers I assume are different now on my receipt and the brown box IPad they gave me.

Is there some sort of record that they keep to know that this iPad still belongs to me? And it's all legit?

I just don't want to run into problems when I go to return tomorrow. my return date on my receipt is April 5th so I assume they'll take it back with no questions asked, or at least I hope so. I get the feeling theyre getting sick of me coming back and thinking I'm crazy.

lol ! Apple-3 Lotto ! But Agree, It is a Lotto !

It's a lotto in the same way as dying in a car accident is a lotto. It doesn't happen to many people, but when it does it sure ruins your day.

Good to know. I thought the whole screen was yellow, not just the corner. That does suck. Plan to give it another try in a while or are you waiting on the iPad 4?

My iPad 3 had a slight yellow hue for the first day and a half. This is normal. It's been said the screen has to burn in a little. It's absolutely stunning now. Make sure you use it for a few days before you return it. It's likely to clear up.
