And I agree with your comment. I have at this point had 6 units. One was dead out of the box, the first one had very very light coloration, but other issues, and the other 4 have all different blotches in different spots. I thought that I could start seeing a universal pattern of where what color is more likely to be, such as pink for the top right corner, but others did not confirm this, and the unit I received today is mostly green, with a pink center top.
Oh I follow you now.

I think it's interesting that Amazon has addressed the spotlighting affect (oh it's normal, apparently):

First it says this:

Patented built-in light evenly illuminates the screen to provide the perfect reading experience in all lighting conditions

And then they say this:

Under certain lighting conditions, the illumination at the bottom of the screen from the built-in light is not perfectly even. See examples of how the screen looks in different lighting conditions. These variations are normal and are located primarily in the margin where text is not present.

Which is it, Amazon? And what about addressing the color casts, huh, huh, huh?
