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?
Yeah, it took them 2 weeks (?) to decide to post something to counter the negative reviews - there is another thread about it in this forum.

Their info does not address the defects stemming from thir manufacturing process or QC. But then again, what could they possibly say about it and not lose face? Instead, 5 star reviewers are attacking 1-3 star reviewers openly through the comments section - it's crazy out there!
