Dead/inverted pixels

Will try keep it short

Sony Reader PRS-350 (silver) both in original packaging and unopened.

First order:
- 1 dead/inverted pixel near middle of the screen. Ok, bad luck I thought tried to ignore it but didn't work mind goes on its own finding stuff that doesn't fit in.

Replacement:
- 3 dead/inverted + 1 half dead/inverted pixel (wrong grayscale & noticeable). None of them are that near the center but still very noticeable.

Am I being a prick for returning them I mean is this normal for E-ink should bad pixels be accepted? They're no tiny-I've-got-microscopic-vision-pixels they're very noticeable when I read (the reader is so small and near my eyes), fine when you read a book you see them sometimes bad printing on a page here and there but at least you can turn the page for real and it's/they're gone.

So, hope for a 3rd replacement, order from somewhere else (bad batch?), continue reading on my LCD screen? Anyone else had this problem?
