Are you happy with your Boox's screen?

Hello guys,
I finally bought Boox after waiting for so long. The first unit I received had screen issues when exposed to the sun. Old story and I just immediately sent the unit for replacement.
I got the replacement and started reading. I read in a shade, in my office, at home, outside under the sun, with refresh ON/OFF but I didnt find the comfort of reading I was expecting from Boox. The screen is very grey. I didnt expect it to be white but I didnt expect it to be that grey either. Also it has quite a bit of glare. Even the Nook I tested a month ago had whiter, brighter screen I think. So now I am just thinking of selling the unit and getting Kindle 3, Sony or others with better screens. I guess screen contrast is mostly hardware issue and software update will unlikely make it better. I have the latest update BTW.
So is it just me? Or may be somebody else has the same thoughts. Thanks a lot for your input.
