anyone with screen issues?
My new iPad had something under the screen that looked like dust or dirt. Apparently I'm not the only one, another guy here in Hawaii had the same issue. The Royal Hawaiian store promptly replaced it.
Just curious if anyone else had issues.

mine looks like the backlight is uneven. the left side of the display seems a tiny bit darker than the right regardless of the overall brightness level. toying with the idea of bringing it to the Apple store to show the genius bar.

I bought two (LTE VZW in white 32gb & 64 gb) from my local Best Buy. My first 64gb came out of the box slightly damaged (scuffs and scratches on the aluminum). I quickly brought it back for an exchange and they obliged. However, when I got home and tried to set up the "new" one, I noticed that the top of the screen (in portrait) seemed to be "warmer" or yellower than the top. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, so I compared the 64 and 32 side-by-side. Took it to Best Buy today and the first person I talked to said he couldn't tell and looked at me "you're kidding right", but the lady at customer service said she'd exchange it out again, BUT they don't have any in stock. SUCKS! She said that I should keep checking in to see if they restocked, but isn't sure when that'll be, as long as I do it within 45 days.
Any similar problems/defects with others' displays?
Will Apple swap it out even though I bought it from Best Buy and still within the refund period?
Thanks in advance for any input/advice...

Anybody think that scrolling seems jumper, not as smooth as iPad 2? Seems worst in the face book app, less in Twitter, but exists to a small degree in Safari. Mayb sim only really noticing it now cause this screen is so awesome it's hard to take your eyes of of...

I agree about tapatalk hd...quality.
As for screen issues...yes. I'm now on my second 32gb VZW model. The first had a lot of bleed in the bottom left corner of the screen. Not noticeable on anything other than a black screen but that pretty much annoyed the hell out of me when I watched movies. So yeah. Took it to apple and swapped it out without a problem. They did try to give me one of their "replacement" devices and I laughed and said give me a new one and they obliged. Silly that they want me to swap out a brand new device for one of their brown box replacements within one week of owning the thing.

One day while leaning back in my chair with the iPad on and sitting on the desk I noticed I can see the back lighting from the top edge of the screen. Looks like there is a gap between the LCD and glass, exposing a thin strip of white light.
Looking at it head on, it seems fine though. Don't even notice any bleeding.
