Many of the Kindle Paperwhites have had problems with color hue issues. You look at the screen and see a faint hue of pink, blue, green on the screen. Also, some users have them, but don't see them, possibly due to being color blind. There's also been glowing specks and black specks and also sometimes one of the lights will be brighter casting a bigger shadow in on the screen in that area.
So a good PW would be one free of color hues and the other issues I mentioned. Going by the photos posted, very few of them exist, unfortunately.
