I kept it on for over 3 hours last night, and the font issue did seem to improve slightly. But then when I switched back to the book I was reading (the one in the images) the fading came back badly.
If I know for certain that there wouldn't be any font issues in a replacement device, I would ask for another. But I'm not sure that the WHSmith store would allow me try out each device checking for font issues lol
