Received my PW today.

I received my PW today and the first thing I did was play with the screen. Slight light cones at the bottom( which my Nook Glowlight has) but no color blotches. I tried it under all light conditions.

So, right now it looks like I got a good one. If I can figure out how to post a pic here, I'll do so later.

I'm glad you got a good one and that you're happy. Enjoy it! (I'd love to see pics!)

Yay! Did you have to return a previous one, or did you get lucky right off?

No, first one. Although, I had canceled two previous orders.

I went to Waterstone's in Dundee today and bought one. I am getting used to it. At the moment I miss the KB3 sharpness and page turn buttons but like other features. I tried using it without the case on at first but prefer it with the case on. I need to do a proper late night reading session to conclude anything.

No colour artefacts but I do have the dark spots at the bottom which I can live with and expected.

The picture as promised earlier. It makes the screen look slightly pinkish on the left, but it isn't like that in real life. I used the camera on my iPad to take the picture. You can see the LED shadows at the bottom, but they don't bother me.

Also, the text is sharper than what appears in the photo.

Mine looks about the same. I've been really happy with it.
