I know this issue has been around since the iPad 2 came out. I've never cranked up my brightness until tonight. There are 5 spots along the left side where light is bleeding or leaking. Is this something Apple has admitted to with these LG panels? Have there been any instances where someone has been able to return there's for a replacement after having it for over a half year?

Yup I returned mine after about 6 months because of the backlight. No problems given, the issue was verified right away by the genius.

I'd have to actually deal with Apple over the phone and pay to return ship my iPad. I wonder if the ones manufactured most recently have had that issue corrected. I wouldn't want to get another one (probably a refurb) with the same problem.

Oh I see your dilemma. Well I don't know if they are all ok now. But I know that mine has absolutely no more light bleeding at all.
