[Solved] Which test to do before buying a kobo glo?

Hello friends, I wish to ask you which test should I do to discover hypothetical defects in the kobo glo? For defects I mean defects as bright pixels. or other things (do you know what else can it suffer?).
Tomorrow I will go at the library store to buy one and I would like to be sure it is an ok unit!

Thx a lot for your advice!

Turn the brightness all the way up in a darkish room and you'll notice any bright pixels, if you cant be in a darkish room then you'll just have to wait until you get home, but you have like 30 days to return it for another one. I have not heard much bad things about the kobo glo and mine is fine so you should be ok with first one you get.

those bright pixels are easy to spot even at low light, if you eyes are ok, I saw in Whsmiths in normal light.

A few people seem to have uneven lighting, which you should also check for.

The light being brighter in certain spots than others, or maybe different shades of white in different areas. The only different shade/brightness you should see is a long the bottom, where the light sources are located.
