Hope you enjoy your PW.
Excellent point. I ordered a PW and received one that to my eyes was excellent and I use it daily.

I have two Paperwhites and both are perfect. I read in normal room light with the Kindle's light only as bright as it needs to be, usually under 10.

I've always suspected that most of the problems with blotches, etc, are caused by having the light too bright. I can't be sure of that but a lot of the descriptions of problems that I read about do seem to indicate that.

No. Just to see the blotches.

On my first PW, I could clearly see pink & green blotches in bright daylight with the light at 11... I wouldn't quite call that having the light too bright (what I'd describe as the "usable" range of the light on that PW was between 6 and 9 and pretty much unusable in anything other than good ambient lighting...Not really acceptable) The replacement does not have that problem and also has a much clearer, brighter screen overall

So there definitely are some duds out there that should have never left the factory. It's a bit disappointing to see from the OP that they still haven't really tightened QC as it seems that duds are still being shipped out - buying a PW shouldn't be a lottery.
