While it does have some blotchiness on the bottom, it does not distract me from reading as bright dust specs, scratches, and discoloration would. So, while not perfect, I can at least get down to reading.
The billboard effect at the bottom is normal but it shouldn't be blotchy anywhere else. You may notice a green or blue shadowing around the screen edges, Kind of like a border, depending how you hold it. This is normal. All Kindles have it. The light just exaggerates it.

My PW had a plastic piece sticking out on the top edge of the screen. I was also easily able to remove it. When I first saw it I was like please don't let it be a broken pixel. My PW is pretty good, no discoloration. The contrast on the text could be so much better though.

Also as you lower the light below 5 you will notice a background becoming dirty or muttled. Just not looking clean specially where the text is. This is normal due to how eInk screens look without light.
