Is The New iPad Experiencing Light Bleeding Issues?

The new iPad's high resolution display is, at the same time, praised by analysts and reviewers around the world and blamed by a few frustrated users. The latter category explains the discontent over the dedicated forums and reveals a less than satisfactory first-hand experience.

One issue detailed by many users is the light bleeding previously noticed on the second-generation iPad. When held at certain angles, the new iPad display shows a slightly red area in the lower corners. Jason S explains his frustration on the MacRumors forum: "I also have a yellow gradient running down the left side, which I believe is due to some bleeding. But the red is what bothers me the most. Really kills the experience for me."

The problem is more apparent on a black screen. This is how the users who have noticed the issue suggested that customers should check the device at the Apple Store before making the purchase. This can spoil the fun of the users who want to enjoy a movie on the highly praised display or play a game on a device that is advertised to deliver impressive graphic performance.
