I'm choosing to keep it as it's better than the options I was using previously.
Also, I believe there is one factor that has a huge influence on first impressions whether it is realized or not. The eyes of a large majority of us have become accustomed to the white, evenly-backlit, LCD displays of our phones, tablets and other devices -- nothing like a frontlit LED device. I am not excusing Amazon for any manufacturing or QC problems, and they do indeed exist, but I have also kept this in mind while making a final judgement. I really hope the time/"curing" theory proves to be the answer.
