I've had my iPad for just over a month and have only noticed a bit of backlight bleeding whilst watching a film

 

Is this a good enough reason for me to return it to apple for an exchange.  It's also a personalised model so would they just give me a new one?

 

Thanks

RE: New iPad backlight bleed

It's only occuring in the bottom left of the screen but enough to provide a distraction

Well if it bothers you, I'd take it back to your local Apple store and see what they say.

They are pretty good inside of warranty, I swapped my iPad on the last day of its warranty because of a hot patch.

RE: New iPad backlight bleed

Mine has bottom left bleed too. Bought in March this year so I might take it back. It's not horrendously bad and only noticeable with dark backgrounds, but still a bit shoddy.
