    The one that I've grabbed today with below info:

    Name: iPad 3

    Factory: DY (Please tell us where this machine is manufactured)

     

    LIke you, mine's from DY which could be a new plant. My experience with my DY is reasonably good, doesn't generate heat above battery's cap of <=35 celcius but yet, around 35 celcius on IB2 which is probably the most performance intensive Retina game. Of course not cold like the iPad 2, but temperature is just slightly-moderately higher, but reasonable.

     

    Did you get to try things like Real Racing 2 or Infinity Blade 2 on the DL demo unit by the way?

    Also if you do experience the 'electrostatic' feel, 'strange feeling', 'vibration feeling' while using the iPad plugged to a wall socket, refer to this thread.

     

    Your mains electricity rating may be 220V @ 50Hz, similar to those in countries like UK and Singapore where there are cases on electrostatic feel reported.

     

    I need advice on 'electrostatic feel'

    Ran Real Racing 2 yesterday for 45 mins straight and the machine was definitely warm.  Not unbearable or whatsoever. 

     

    Y-5: no obvious random drop out.  Will further test later today. 

     

    Demo units don't have Real Racing 2 or Infinity Blade 2 installed.  Merely had Angry Bird and couple of low intensitive games (i.e. those didn't come with "HD" on it).  So, can't comment on that.  But I'd expect if they were running RR2 or IB2, must be real hot.

    Guess I've missed "electrostatic" feel in this thread.  Which page was it?  HK is also running 220V @ 50Hz.  But I ain't sure the feeling that u r talking about.

    It wasn't as cold as iPad2 but definitely acceptable.

     

    Best summary yet.

    iPad 3 definitely has no issues in my opinion...I just purchased one today and have used it 6 hrs nonstop but there doesn't seem to be any issue....It's simply awesome.

    That's because its a DY. DY>DL in terms of reviews anywhere on the net. DYs heat less, compared to DLs which at times runs at temperatures beyond what the battery can take resulting to more battery related complaints as well. DYs' thermal management is better, even if you're playing games like Real Racing 2.

    Electrostatic feel wasn't in this thread. With certain mains power rating including those of HK, there are chances that you may experience a slight amount of electrical current flowing through your hands if you use the new iPad while its charging. It may feel uncomfortable.

    Of course it is. I have a friend who purchased the New iPad yesterday at Best Buy.........

     

    The post seem to be talking about exchanges. A purchase may be a mutually exclusive event to the retailer, depending on how they handle the issues. I'm not sure if they've got provisions for exchanges set aside or priorities are given to sales rather than exchanges.

     

    Unless you're saying your friend made an exchange (because both other posts about Best Buy were on exchanges), I'll give second thoughts.

     

    Leaving other assumptions aside.

    BerthaVanation's Best Buy "lockdown" claims are pure nonsense.

    I want to know why apple yet don't give us clear vision about this issue and take customers to nothing only replacement product if you return it to apple care , I want to ask question what can I do if I face this problem if I haven't apple care in my country ( I'm from Egypt) so I wait yet to see the final status of this issue , but really I want to buy it now and don't know when can I make this decision especially comments in this forum exceed 70 pages ( huge comments about one issue) , if anyone have recommendation please tell me .

    Use google and you'll get your answer. The new iPad does not have overheating issues.

     

    If you browse through the 70  pages here you'll find out that most of the post were written by only two or three individuals... not sure their motivation... trolling or not, there is always a chance of getting a bad iPad... They cant have a 100% bug/deffect free manufacturing. If your iPad has any issues return it to the retailer and get a new one.

     

    Again, for the 1000th time, the new iPad gets warmer under heavy gaming at 100% brightness but it should not get uncomfortably hot nor should it crash or shutdown because of extreme heat. If any of these things happen return the iPad and get a new one.

    Slight clarification.... The new iPad gets noticeably warmer than the iPad 2 under typical use (even at 60% brightness), however it never becomes uncomfortably warm and the amount of heat is influenced by the level of brightness and CPU usage.

     

    Rinse and Repeat

    That's just not true.  Even with no usage only using iMessage at 85%-100% brightness it gets uncomfortably hot.  I'm on my 3rd iPad and I've tried numerous units at two local Apple stores.  All had the same issue.  To say their is no heating issue is a blatant lie.

    I dont know what to tell you... you have very sensiteive hands...

     

    Get your money back if you dont like the device.

     

    I got one couple of weeks after release and it works perfectly fine.

     

    Also at work we have a few new iPads for app development and they work just the same...

     

    When you have millions of iPads sold and only few people complaining on the official Apple forum, it does not seem like an issue to me.

     

    EDIT: BTW... I am just qurious... Why the heck would you use the iPad at 100% brightness, even outside on a sunny day.

    It just seem unnaturally bright and the color reporoduction is not the same at that brightness level...

    Interesting you should say that because I asked the Apple store that same question about why people aren't posting on the forums and they said most people aren't aware of how to use forums.  However, the store closest to me where I bought my iPad told me they have had a significant amount of new iPad returns, much more than they ever had with the iPad 2.  Even one of the reps that was assiting me returned his iPad.  They said the majority of the returns are for screen related issues but almost as large a portion are because of the heat problems.  Even a supervisor from Applecare support told me the same thing.  They wanted to get my iPad back and examine it but whatever they send me in return won't be any different and it will be a refurb.  Out of the 3 this last one has the best screen quality by far and I don't want to risk losing that.  Believe me, if it weren't for the superior display and my using it to check for photo color accuracy I would have returned it a long time ago.

     

    I enjoyed using my iPad 2 all the time.  I used it several hours a day.  I hardly can stand using the new one and use it for maybe 15-20 minutes every 2-3 days, only when I absolutely need to.  It's not enjoyable to use at all, and anyone who says holding it in your hands at 100% brightness is comfortable is full of it.
