Many users, reporting the bleeding, have posted here, saying they took the unit back to an Apple store and had it replaced. Isn't that the kind of thing you'd do if you had a hardware problem? (If not the store, then contacting Apple directly for instructions on a repair.) Of course getting a replacement at some locations was a problem due to the short supplies. YMMV.
While many have had the bleeding problem, it seems most users have none. So it's not universal. My wife's new iPad, ordered within the first hour it was available from the web site, came without any problems. For others there were problems. I don't see a recall if most iPads don't bleed.

Well your wife and few others are 1 of the lucky 1's then i guess?? But why return it in exchange for one that is going to be the exact same if not worse? The views and replies to that thread alone speak for it self. When Apple gives us a rate of return percentage on the ipad 2 or starts tradin these in for good ipad 2 screens is when I will reply to you as being right.

Don't forget, the users posting here about bleeding are not the ones that have no problems.... although someone did start a thread some time ago asking who did have no problems, and a whole lot of us responded. But generally, you'll get the users with problems posting here - not users who are happy.

The thread to the bleeding screen is not really that big. Out of the millions of iPads sold only a couple thousand have complained. Very minimal and they can take the device back for an exchange. Another thing is that may users probably don't notice it cause it is very limited or not present at all. For the folks that have it very limited they probably don't care cause it doesn't affect there use.
