Well, I went through EIGHT before I got one that actually didn't fade in the sun, so consider yourself very lucky (or me very unlucky).

It is a QC issue: It's apparently cheaper to simply send out replacements for those who notice the problem screens, than take the time to run a UV light over every unit.
