You are correct. All the posters to this forum combined are just a drop in the bucket of total Amazon Paperwhite sales so far. Star voters on the PW page are also a drop in the bucket.

I have purchased hundreds, if not thousands, of products from Amazon and only posted my star view a very few times.

Even if products are defective in one way or the other, I rarely return any. Most are still functionable with defects and others cost so little that I do not want to waste any of my time returning them. I simply give them as "gifts" to others or just throw them out.

Also, another person posted he received two defective PW's. That is not the same as returning one for a refund and then ordering a new one and waiting for it. Those ordered at the exact same time may have all been from the same production line having a QC problem that week.

This poll is really just for our little group here and is trying to see what happens in the future for those who return the PW for a refund and then order a new one. We will know the outcome in about 6 weeks.

There may have been a few who already did that. They can vote here and tell the rest of us.
