    I don't HAVE to turn it down to 25% it's because I WANT to.  Any higher than 50% is too bright indoors and hurts my eyes.  I did the same with my iPad 2 and original iPad.  Thanks for telling me I am not enjoying my iPad because I set it to the way I prefer!  I have tested my iPad at 100% and it gets warm but not hot.

    Man, you have had to have the brightness at 100%? And then dropped it to a low 80%????? I know London can be overcast but it's not going to make that any better.

     

    Even in full sun I haven't needed 100%. At home in a brightly lit room 50% brightness is sharp and clear....

     

    I know it should be fine at 100% but with sustained gaming added of course it will get hot... What are you expecting? Even the best gaming rig with liquid cooling pushed will get hot, even to the point where ambient room temp plays a part.

     

    I get annoyed with peps bagging or comlaining about products when they expect beyond real world performance

  • enderx Level 1 Level 1 (85 points)

    I just tested my iPad next to my monitor at work.  The iPad at 50% brightness is slightly brighter than my monitor at 100% brightness.  That is impressive.

  • DazisHERE Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Just turned mine up to 100% mate you must have burnt out retinas.

     

    I also put forward that @beersyourfriend and @zachberry are TROLLS. Zachberry for example has made 12 comments on this post, beers at twice that with 24!!!!!

     

    Who are you guys? Pimply anti-apple 17yos in a dorm? You are trying hard by putting your negative comments in a 'I wish it wasn't like this' light but am I the only one that sees through it...

  • TechieXP Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    If what you claim is true, you shoudl report it to Consumer Reports, and you shoudl have taken pictures of it. If you didn't do any of that, then the iFans are going to scold you as not providing any proof.

     

    Your word in such a case means nothing. It's just hearsay. You can claim whatever you want. You can say, well I wouldn't have posted it here if it wasn't true. Yeah, well you can say you're 10 ft tall and look like Lou Ferrigno, doesn't make it true with some proof.

     

    Understand?

  • Matt941 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    so apple fan boys are making the excuse for the new ipan that we have to turn our brightness down to 50% so it wont get to hot, LOL! Why even bother having it, if we cant use it the way we want to? Why not turn the brightness down to 5%, so it really stays cool, but we can barely see the screen!  I always kept my ipad 2 at 100% brightness never had 1 problem!  Back to Best Buy to pick up a fresh ipad 2, which doesnt shoot fire balls at me!

  • LegoLeo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I totally agree with you!  I set the brightness at 25% because I like how my iPad looks at that level.  Another huge benefit with the 25% setting is improved battery life.  My iPad was fully charged when I started watching an episode of Pawn Stars with the Netflix app... 20 minutes later when the video ended the battery was at 99%. 

     

    Oh, by the way I have the cheapest 3rd gen iPad (16GB wifi only).

  • zachberry Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    1. Not a troll - I'm typing this up on a MBP in an office full of Mac hardware.  iOS is a slick sexy buttery piece of software that Android is miserably trying to keep up with.  Johnny Ive is my hero.  I promise I'm not sitting here with my pizza-faced cabal of Apple haters eagerly slinging Apple hate over the internets.

    2. I'm upset that Apple - which I hold in high regard - bascially released a tablet computer that is bigger, heaver, and hotter than the previous model.  I get that it is what it is, and that arguing about it isn't going to change it - that doesn't mean I'm not still dissatisfied.

    3. I'm annoyed by the defensive commentary and the statements that A) People having problems are trying to smear Apple and B) Articles pointing out issues with the new iPad are just empty controversy-spreading linkbait yellow journalism.

    4. I want to know more information about the people who are reporting that their iPads have "no heat issues".  I want to know if my iPad is actually defective or not.

     

    I've decided to keep the iPad 3 despite the issues, because the screen is amazing technology and I don't want to be left in the past with last years model.  Still, if it can run cooler than it currently is I want to know.

  • dalepa Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I had severe heat (~110 degrees) issues for the first 2-3 days.  Now, no heat.  My Ipad(Verizon LTE 16GB) is cool to the touch.   I did let my ipad cycle down to 0% once, and I did reboot it... But that's it... 

     

    If I still had heat like the first 3 days, I would be returning... but I'm ok now.

     

    battery life is another story, the ipad3 is sucking it up at least 2x faster than the ipad1...

    I found that mine only got hot when I had the brightness turned way up. When it's below %50, it seems to be fine. OK for now! It may pose a problem when using it outside for long periods.

  • zachberry Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    That's good to hear.  I drained my battery completely and brought it back up to 100% and will report if things change - so far it's about the same as when I first had it.

     

    The fact that the new iPads take longer to charge and need more juice isn't the best thing in the world, but I can live with that.

  • jhuynh2000 Level 1 Level 1 (20 points)

    But why would you want it at 100% if it blows out the shadows?  Don't you want the best picture quality?  The best picture quality is not with 100% brightness.  Go to AVSForums and you will see that nobody sets their TV at 100% brightness I will tell you that.  Those guys are crazy and spend tons of money to calibrate their TVs professionally.

  • dalepa Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Brighness setting depends on your ambient light.   In my bedroom, 50% is too bright, in my office (with a window) 100% setting is too dim...   that's why.
