Is there a way to post photos in Amazon reviews. We should start posting ours if so. I think you can post photos at the top of the page, so maybe post there too.

Ditto.

My replacement looks almost just like yours with that big blob of shadow covering most of the upper 2/3. I think I've got a bit more pink though with an especially big (thumb sized) blob in the lower left. I can still read on it, but it tires out my eyes and I'm having to read much more slowly because of the effect the shadows have.
Forgive me if I am incorrect, but I thought you were happy with your replacement. What changed for you?

The replacement changed. It started out decent but it kept getting worse and worse. Now it is nearly as bad as the one it replaced. These damn things are changing over time.

I can imagine just how frustrating that would be!

You have 30 days to return it, so it is really safe to give it a trial run. Many people seem to be perfectly content with their PW even though some of us are rotten luck.

Just chatted with Amazon CS

I haven't received mine yet, but I thought I'd chat with Amazon CS and see what they say. I ordered mine last week and it is projected to arrive at my house on October 25. Here is our chat conversation:

Quote:
Me: I've read and seen photos with Kindle paperwhite screen discoloration. Is this issue going to be resolved when i receive mine on Oct 25 (its expected arrival date)?
Abhishek: Hello, my name is Abhishek. I will be happy to help you.
Yes, it has already been resolved.
Me: What was the issue?
Abhishek: I'm sorry James, we are not really sure about that but after receiving few contacts on that, we have fixed that and the screens are perfectly fine now.
Apparently it has "been resolved". Fingers crossed.

I just got tworeplacements: one WifiSO (the one that almost all reps told me was not available yesterday and the day before), and a 3G non SO. They would be great if it weren't for the color blobs. The 3G is mostly blue, the other one just blue and pink.

If only they could sell this darn thing without the light. The interface is nice and the reason why I am still debating keeping two out of the 5 I now have at home. That and the fact that I promised one as a Xmas present to someone who is impossible to shop for. I'd be screwed if I had to find something else to gift now!! I won't even try for another replacement after the last ordeal.

Very unhappy. I will play with them tonight and figure out what to do. They are not even the same brightness, WTF!

Yeah, right, which is why the ones I received today look paperwhite and even. That's just a flat out lie.

Dang it, I read this first and missed the implied sarcasm. I was excited for a minute.

Sorry you got screwed again. Let us know what you decide to do.

Abhishek, now there is name you here all the time on the great North American plains! Those CS guys are so far away and so far inside a cage that they probably have never even seen the new PW in person. I bet they marginally make a bit more than those poor Chinese workers who build the PWs.
