    Are you going to try an exchange?

    I might... Still deciding. Was an impulse purchase as I just got an iPad mini retina...

    Much different tablets...what do you do the most on a tablet? Have you already owned tablets of both sizes?

    Yes, I noticed it too but was willing to overlook it for the gorgeous display.

    I personally prefer 8" myself. I thought the iPad Mini was a nice tablet but under-powered by a bit, esp. when it comes to RAM. The new iPad Mini is probably nice, but the price is getting up there. have you considered the Dell Venue 8 Pro?

    Liking the smaller format of the iPad mini.

    Was really loving the build of the 2520 until I turned it on...

    I'm not seeing any backlight bleed on mine. Maybe you got a bad unit?

    Nearly ALL IPS based displays will have some light bleed under the right conditions. There is good reason for it *however* there will be a some units with too much pressure placed on certain areas of the display when built that can make it worse than it needs to be. Sometimes there are ways to alleviate the pressure based light bleed from mounting but you have to know what you are dealing with.

    It was pretty significant

    Does it look like it's pressure based bleed from the LCD panel being distorted or squished, or is it the individual lights of the backlight showing? If it affects corners or just one or two spots on a edge it's probably caused by pressure on the panel. It may also look more yellow. You might get lucky and get a replacement that's significantly better although some tablet designs end up with all the panels having pressure spots due to how they are secured in the chassis. If it looks like half a dozen or so brighter spots along a single long edge then that's the individual LEDs showing. You're less likely to get a replacement that looks any different. It's more likely to be a characteristic of every instance of this type of panel.

    Stupid question but what is backlight bleed and how would I tell if I have it?
    In regards to iPad mini or Air, good luck with that, there is a bug in IOS7 that crashes safari all the time and to this date apple has not even acknowledged a problem.
    I took my iPad Air back.

    This bug in safari has made me put my gen 4 iPad on sale and getting it replaced with a 2520.

    This is apparently a huge issue in all iOS7 devices and at atleast some OSX devices. I was reading about it yesterday on the iMore.com forums.

    There are some issues with iOS 7...

    I think the reason most people don't notice is they use apps rather than browser for many things.

    I have learned to hate iOS, I have to keep on iOS device around because I have to turn in homework with that device, my school is a worshipper of all things apple.

    I have been using 3 mobile OS's for three years now, and have gotten fed up with android, got pissed with iOS 7 issues and now ready for a windows only environments. IOS was working good until performance on my iPad completely got borked with io7, and android is a never ending battle for a smooth experience. Windows has been the smoothest by far and no serious problems, but when wp7 devices could not upgrade. ART helps android scrolling problems but it is not as smooth as windows smooth scrolling.

    I noticed some backlight bleed a bit on the lower right corner when I turned the 2520 on. During normal use everything looks right. I'm not going to worry about it. I'm three days in and haven't noticed it since I took it out of the box.

    hi, I just got my 2520 fro Verizon. I notice a some bleeding when on a black screen, like during start up or a movie that has a dark seen. should I be concerned or not? it was the only one they had in stock, so not sure if I would be able to get a new one. while playing Spartan assault I did not really notice it. at it looked really good. thanks.

    Depends on how "type A" you are. Like mcraine above, I have bleed in the lower right, and only notice it during startup, and during the occasional movie. If something like that is going to drive you crazy, I would try to return it. If you do, please report back on how it turned out. If not, enjoy!

    Honestly almost every single mobile display has some backlight bleeding, my 2520 has it but not nearly as bad as my Asus Vivotab did. I thought that I would give Apple props because I didn't notice it on their products. And just last night I saw it on my fiance's $2k MacBook pro. So if it is bad enough to bother you (dark background on the main screen, and it bugs you) get it replaced. But mine is really not bad at all, I only see it if I'm looking for it. Also when my screen warms up it pretty much goes away.
