The new iPad ranked top tablet by consumers

The Consumer reports have been highly impressed by the new iPad and have rated the display as significantly plus.

The latest iPad has successfully found a lot of new fans, as the consumer reports. Apple's latest iPad managed to score the highest rating amongst all its competing rivals in the Consumer Reports for publication.

The new iPad was highly appreciated for its 5 megapixel camera, long battery and 4G coverage through Verizon wireless. The most appreciated feature present on the iPad was the high screen resolution. The unique retina display with it’s the details and color accuracy was said to have established a benchmark in excellence. The publication said that the colors on the new iPad were more saturated, more natural and warmer than those available on the iPad 2. The new iPad will be the only tablet to receive an excellent score in display quality and be rated as the best tablet yet. This is sure to boost the new iPad sales and pull down on the rivals.

The Consumer Reports also mentioned the slight imperfections in the new display which was found on apps designed for a lower resolution. Users even said that certain text in electronic magazines looks worse than they did on the iPad 2. The publishers however will now be tweaking their apps to take the advantage of the new display without dramatically increasing the size and the number of downloads.

CNET weighed the heat problems on the new iPad as a little cause for concern.  Without doubt, the new iPad is definitely much warmer than the iPad 2, said the publication testing. But the heat did become a little too much at times like when playing a graphics-intensive game with the screen at full brightness.

But the overall display rating is still a “significant plus” for the Consumer Reports. Even tablet buyers who were earlier not considering buying the new iPad are sure to go through a mind change after the CR’s review of the Apple tab.

Though, the CR expects some high-resolution screen compatible content to be released for the tab. The other recommended tablets by the CR are the Toshiba’s Excite 10LE, which is a 10.1 inch tablet and Pantech’s Element, with its long battery life amongst tablets and 8-inch wide waterproof screen. Other recommendations were the Sony Tablet P with its 2 5 inch screens which is considered the best for reading books and viewing photos, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 followed by the OLED screen, deep blacks, and wide viewing angle it provides.
