At the end of the day it all depends on your own preferences. I will buy a Kobo as well as a Kindle PW. If I am not happy with my Kobo it goes to my son, who is a real bookworm.
Fair enough, I don't for a minute think the Glo is perfect, and do think the number of complaints about the Paperwhite probably says as much about the numbers sold compared to the Glo as it does about poor quality control.

My only preference is to buy books from Amazon, the ereader I'm pretty neutral on, and for now at least, Kobo seems to be doing a bit better job of it. That might change in a few months time if there turns out to be firmware issues with the Glo and Amazon improve the QC of the Paperwhite....
