My backlight bleeding has also gotten worse. I also have a dead pixel. I'm holding off on getting a replacement until they solve this manufacturing issue. The way i see it, I've got a year to do it before the warranty is up.

I had major back light bleeding on mine. It was on all four corners and sides. I decided to take it into the local apple store. The "genius" was very helpful and gave me a replacement on the spot. My replacement doesn't have any back light bleeding at all. Only thing is now I read about the antenna gate issue with wifi and tried it out on my iPad. It has that issue. Its not really that bad but it reduces my wifi signal by one bar and when I did a speed test it slowed down my connection.

I had slight bleeding on both sides of the home button. It didn't bother me but now I am seeing some bleeding near the camera lense. Had my iPad2 for about 3 weeks.

After the holiday, I'll return for another. :(

My replacement iPad 2 is much, much better. Only one slight area where I can see a leak, and it has to be in a completely darkened room to see it. During normal use there's no issue. Glad I took the effort to head to my local Apple store. :)

My Ipad 2 arrived Monday, 5/23.

Having used it all week, I really enjoy it. At first I thought I had no light bleeding at all, but after a few days I realized I do have a tiny bit on one side. However, I have decided it's minor enough that I will not pursue a replacement. I can only really see the bleed on a black (or mostly all black) screen), so it's not bad.

There is no guarantee that a replacement will be perfect, so I'll stick with mine. I have no dead pixels or any other issues.

Same, i'd rather not risk it as it is only noticeable under certain circumstances like yours, and it is only a little, with no other problems

i have been using mine for about 2 months, it has bleeding all over the edges, but only on black screen, also has 1 dead pixel which really bothers me more than the bleeding,

so i wonder if they could send me a new one for those reasons even if a live in mexico, also read in the comments someone get a leather smart cover as an apology gift for the troubles.

any one else who exchange the device receive any gifts?

I take it to mean that light behind the screen bleeds through. To check for it take a black photo and go into a dark room and then switch your brightness to high. Look along the edges of the screen for white bleeding coming through the screen.

I've only had mine for 8 days, but no signs of it yet. Hopefully I never notice any! :ipad-front:
