"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," Consumer Reports said.

"As a result, the iPad tops our new tablet ratings," it added.

The organization gave the tablet the highest score yet for color accuracy, CBS News reports.

"The new iPad's 2,048-by-1,536-pixel display is so impressive that Consumer Reports says they have 'recalibrated [their] standard of excellence for tablet screens'," the report said.
