Well I got the PW Friday afternoon and i have to say I am very pleased. I don't seem to have any of the colered blotchs or screen issues that people have talked about. I was able to set it up and get my library transfered easily.
I really liked reading in the afternoon light and it was even nicer reading in bed. I lowered the light level a bit and my wife said it did not bother her. Her lighted cover for her Kindle 3 is more bothersome IMHO.
I have to say I am joining the ranks of the "I like my PW"!
