No, I wouldn't.

I pre-ordered my Paperwhite very early (in the UK), and suffered agonies while waiting for it reading all the concerns about colour-casts etc. and wondered if I'd done the right thing.

My e-reading up to that point had been a mixture of Sony e-ink in bright conditions and iPad when it's dull (in the UK, guess which was more common ...).

The Paperwhite, when it arrived, won me over completely right away. If I look carefully in certain lighting conditions, I can sometimes convince myself that there's a colour cast, but it really doesn't matter. The reading experience is much better than any of my previous options, and has replaced them all.
