    Hi,

    I bought the 16GB Transformer a couple months ago. Right away, I noticed it has light bleed issues. Not horrible, but very noticeable when watching movies in a dark environment.

    I would like to get it serviced under warranty, but I've heard some stories where some users have done the same to have it returned in WORSE condition! I thought I might wait until they got their manufacturing worked out.

    Any advice or opinion on sending the device in now for repair? Has anybody done the same, and what was the result?

    Thanks!

    This appears to be normal with this high quality screen as iPad owners have complained about the same thing.
    Having recently purchased an Asus Eee Pad Transformer I also have a light bleed bottom near the Asus Logo.
    You may obtain a replacement which may be worse, but only you can decide.
    Myself I can live with mine as in normal use it is not noticeable.

    I sent money in and got it back after 2 weeks. It works great.
