I wonder if there's a way to find out who makes the LCD panel for the Prime? That looks like LG's handiwork. They had huge issues with screen bleed on the O2X/G2X and got dropped as a supplier to Apple because of it. Sorry you drew the short straw. At least you'll have it to use until you can exchange it or send it in for repair. GameStop has a 30 day return policy for defects so make sure you get on the list for a second wave unit in January if you're going to exchange it.

It's worse in person. The picture dims it more. I don't want a freebie. If later down the road I sell this I have to knock the price down even more and most probably wont even buy it.

Thanks for the info. I'm on the phone with them now. Man this sucks. I wanted to rub in to my friends face who has an ipad2. Now I cant.

EDIT: I need to talk to a manager tomorrow to see what they can do. No one really has them in stock. Also they said they cant do refund since its what they consider a "system". But i'll what the manager can do tomorrow. Maybe I they add my name to the next batch like you said.

I'm not really surprised the way they had to rush these things out. Just sucks I ended up with a bad one.

Sure you can. Just do it outside with a light background and set the super bright display to stun.
