I'll take your word for it.
But today, being curious, I asked several different people to look at my e-reader, people who normally don't use it, and none could see any ghosting or flashing. I guess we're just lucky, huh? But at the same time, ghosting was VERY obvious to me when I picked up both the Kobos in the shop. So much so that I quickly decided against them. The price was good. The size and weight was great. But I didn't like what I saw on the screen. I liked the Kindles and Sonys better. They didn't show me any ghosting or flashing. Sorry... maybe I just go used to it too quickly? Like before the first page?
