It's not a new/old stock problem.

I got a Glo in Australia (presumably new stock as just released here) and it had two bright pixels.

As there is no way this should have passed QA at the factory, I'm starting to wonder if Kobo is deliberately releasing these 'defective' devices in the hopes that they don't get traded in. After all, if they do get traded in, the cost is roughly the same as if they were culled at the factory (except for shipping costs, which are fairly minor on a per-unit basis).
