Consumer Ratings, an independent nonprofit organization that seeks to provide honest feedback about products for consumers everywhere, announced on April 2 that the new iPad now tops its list for tablet computer ratings. Apple released its latest version of the iPad - also known as the iPad 3 - in mid-March of 2012.

"The high-resolution screen of the new iPad establishes a new benchmark in excellence, providing the best rendering of detail and color accuracy we've ever seen on a tablet display," reads the report. "As a result, the iPad tops our new tablet Ratings... and despite the energy-intensive display and graphics, the iPad still has longer battery life than all other tablets."

In addition to its very positive reception of the tablet's Retina display technology, Consumer Ratings also noted in several tests, the 4G wireless connection was "fast" and "dependable." When it came down to testing its camera capabilities, the nonprofit consumer report stated that that the five mega-pixel camera took good, clear photos.

Consumer Ratings also took care to address several aspects of the new iPad that people have taken issue with, namely its overheating and inability to recharge while a running a high-energy video game. After conducting a few tests, the organization noted that while the iPad 3 did seem to get a bit warmer than the iPad 2, it was not hot enough to be dangerous for the user or surrounding environment. When it came to recharging, Consumer Ratings did indeed notice the problem, but pointed out that by turning down the tablet's brightness levels, it was able to charge normally.
