I showed my sister who don't use an ebook reader and she says it looks great and thinks I'm crazy. So I tried using it for awhile. I'd been using it for a few months now. Certain light settings will highlight all the things that irritate me. Luckily I found a light setting that I am comfortable with. Screen looks great with lots of light/sunlight. But I don't really notice once I start reading.

It's your choice ultimately.
Thanks, tofubean. That is how I will try to live with it, at least for another week. I contacted Amazon and showed a CSR the pictures. He said they are normal. He also said that I can only ask for a replacement once, since I'm living outside US. I've been reading like fiend on it since Friday. I do notice the discoloration sometimes.
