I will preface this by saying that I tend to be pretty OCD about my gadget screens. That being said, I just returned my fourth Paperwhite to Amazon. The first three Paperwhites had color blotches (the uneven lighting at the bottom didn't really bother me), and the last one had about 5 tiny pin marks of light shining through the screen. Last night as I was preparing to order yet another Paperwhite, I noticed that Amazon was selling certified refurbished 3G Kindle Touches for 129 bucks. So, I removed the PW from my shopping cart and ordered the Touch along with a lighted cover. I think I'll wait for the next generation of Paperwhites before I try again. Or maybe even the generation after next.
