Very distracting. Mine at night looked like Jack's photos. Called, got a replacement quickly and have been trying to love it. I do like the touch, the covers and I like it during the day, but I don't like it at night. And that is what I got it for. This second one is blotchy too. It is like marbled paper. Not as bad as the 1st one though. I have been waiting for it to "dry out", for my eyes to adjust, but I stopped reading within 15 minutes last night because it bothers me. I am not adjusting. The whole point of getting it was to read in a black dark room. During the day I have other kindles to read with.
I was wondering about the k4b with a light too. Aside from Blossom has anyone talked about that kindle? I have the k4s and wonder if there is enough difference with the new. Does it have the covers? The new location locators? Oh good grief do I return this one too? I am not angry about it, I am just very disappointed.
I have the K4S and the K4B and agree with Blossom, the K4B has the best contrast and nicest background color I have seen in an ereader. The software is exactly teh same, no covers/touch/cloud access.
