How common are stuck "pixels" on current Kindles?

I just received a replacement Kindle Keyboard from Amazon and the replacement has noticeable stuck "pixels" (I know they're not pixels but I don't know what else to call them) throughout the display. The problem isn't severe, but it's as if someone sprinkled a bit of fine black pepper on it and it's a bit distracting. I was wondering how common this problem was because my original Kindle Keyboard has a completely clean display. The black and white levels between the two seem identical enough but the distraction caused by the stuck pixels on the new one is making me lean towards asking Amazon for yet another replacement.

The only time I had this happen was when I damaged the screen when I tried to remove some debris with my fingernail. All of my other eink screens are still pristine.

I suggest you have Amazon replace it again. The one you received is damaged.

If you look very closely at any eInk screen you'll see a dusting of tiny black dots on it. This is normal, and inherent in the technology. If they are big enough to be noticeable at normal reading distance, however, then there is a problem.

My original Kindle's screen has no such dusting as far as i can tell, but I'll take another look in the morning.
