Returned kindle 2 for low text contrast

I had kindle 2 for about 3 days, I noticed low contrast on text as compared to kindle 1 (I have both), text on kindle 1 is really good it is dark and somewhat thicker than kindle 2 at the same font size, menu is normal on kindle 2.

I did use all the tricks some people mentioned on other boards such as light source change, reset to factory condition but no avail.

I talked to rep from kindle and he said he heard same complaints from other users as well.

I think kindle 2 is a good choice for people who had no kindle before and are not visually challenged.

I will stick to kindle1 as text is good, and i am used to clicker wheel, I felt odd at this 5 way thing and was choosing wrong menu all the time.
