Ipad 2 Backlight bleed

It seems that the new iPad 2 may have some hardware problems.  Whose to blame?  Well samsung the maker of their LCD displays is.  It appears that the backlight on the iPad 2 has some bleed, which means when you lock the screen, some of the backlight still shines through.  This can be very annoying for techies like me who want their products to be perfect down to a T.  Also this may cause some battery issues.  So, is apple going to replace these bad eggs?  If you have an ipad 2, will you want yours replaced.  I know i will.


  1. the ipad 2 looks really ugly with the backlight showing, yuck

  2. Wow. Samsung has had this problem in many of their displays. Can't say I'm surprised.

  3. It seems like there's no middle line with Apple. Their stuff is alway either amazing or terrible. This is terrible.
