HI all,
Got my G Pad from Newegg Tues. and am very pleased. No problems - no light bleed (used the light bleed app to test), no lines of any kind that I can see. My S/N started with 310 - white color, and the box was not sealed. As you can guess I did my research on this forum before buying. I love the size.

Bought it to replace Ipad mini retina which I had bought on black friday. Yes the mini has 1 big problem (which nobody ever seems to mention) - it keeps dropping my wifi signal.It also doesn't see many of my neighborhood wifi signals - it sees maybe 1 or 2. The G pad and my other android tablets see 8 or 9. By the way - I tried out 2 minis - both had the wifi problem.
My first (and probably last) Apple overpriced product. It is going back. I also got the opportunity to hate iTunes.

Cheers,
catapp

LOL that seal does not look like it was applied at the factory. I'm guessing Newegg got the message and started sealing them in the warehouse. Which I don't see as a problem if it makes customers happy. Personally I bought mine from NE on Cyber Mon. and it didn't matter to me that it wasn't sealed. Sealed or not LG should be faulted for letting these leave the factory in less than pristine condition.
