Thanks Skydog! If the new replacement is no good I "can" live with the replacement I have but I think I'll always be a little unhappy with it.

Ditto. All I want is a uniform, neutral background.

That's exactly the point, isn't it? Keeping something that is not quite right or doing without. I am not used to not being crazy about the devices I own.

That mirrors my sentiments exactly. I will be looking foward to your post when it arrives.

And if so, are you saying it doesn't access your personal docs on the cloud? (I keep being tempted by these discussions, but if that's the case will definitely stick with KK.)
It has access to the cloud they call it Archive Items and yes just like the KK you have a Personal Documents Cloud 5GB.

Please see these threads for others who agree with me.
Check out this thread and this one and mine own here

I do have pics in my thread of my K4S and K4B

The K4 only has list view. It has locations and percentage and the location gauge that shows how far till the next chapter that the Touch did not have.

PW has a "Time Left to End of Chapter" which is very accurate. In that way one can decide whether one has enough time to finish the chapter or just stop at the next paragraph.

Does K4 have that?

No and I am happy it doesn't, I prefer the gauge. The K4 has the gauge like the K3 that shows how far you are till the next chapter if the chapter navigation in enabled in the book you're reading.

The K4 and K3 have very similar firmware but the K4 is faster and has a few tweaks.

There's a similar poll (Are you happy with your PW screen) over on kindleboards now too. Mentioning it for anyone that is a member there too and wants to weigh in with a vote.

Thanks. However, I'm not sure there is a point to casting a vote as it is a forum full of fanboys and fangirls (mostly fangirls).

Careful with those terms, I got my you know whats handed to me in another thread here on MR this morning for using them. But I agree totally. KB is more of a social clique than anything, but they have a few good members who happen to be members here too of course.

Of course. There is nothing wrong with being a fanboy or fangirl but it can prevent an impartial sampling. Yes, it is more of a social clique and there are KB members who are members here (myself included). Still, I see the KB poll as somewhat pointless.

For the record, I am an Amazon Customer Service fangirl.

Oh I hear you. I know it's very slanted over there. I just wanted our experiences noted if only to make the poll a little more accurate.
