I finally got my kindle today (international shipping plus extra charges takes time) and I think my screen looks pretty good. There's some shadowing noticable on the bottom between the LEDs but I don't mind it, and it's much more obvious on the camera than in real life.
Here are a few pics. If it means anything, it's batch 604.

Heather - mine said the same on the prepaid label 'defective/does not work properly'. Guess what? replacement has shipped and its a ...... batch 502!!!! even older than the last replacement. I knew that guy was being honest re a brand new one

Oh well, lets cross fingers and see. My thinking that a newer batch (603, 604) should have problems ironed out and manufacturing processes improved ever so slightly, like how my 604 with the gap at the top had less noticeable shadows at the bottom.

Anyway, lets see - cross your fingers!! (not getting my hopes).

I had both a 502 and a 602 and the 502 was better all around, a lot better actually. I think it's just luck of the draw really. So good luck!

great to hear sparklemotion! will cross my fingers its good. I think stupidly, in my mind I think a 502 is 'old' and want a brand spanking new 604 or whatever the latest batch is. Lets hope its all good and no more returning etc.

Thank you! Were you going to end up trying for another one since the hues developed over time, or are you just waiting for the PW2 to be released?

maybe you charmed the customer service reps into sending you new ones?? :P

fingers crossed it'll be perfect. The 604 I had was perfect except for the gap at top of screen... thinking maybe I should have just kept it but I couldn't not see the gap and line when reading, no matter how hard I tried.

BUT, 502 seems where its at

haha i don't know how! i don't think i can keep this up though, if i have to ask for another replacement i'm sure it won't be new. they'll see that i'm on my 4th pw and be fed up with me! but i would definitely be bothered by the gap as well and would have sent that one back too.

i hope yours is good as well and we can both stop frequenting this thread

Amazon: "We're sorry Ms. Heather Lynn, but you now have tried 4 Paperwhites. We are fed up with you, and you won't get a new e-reader any longer."

- HL: "Man, they MEANT it when they said I wouldn't get a new e-reader any longer.... "

Just pulling your leg of course, like so:



I hope you get a good one

With regard to my own reader: It actually looks a bit greenish now (fringing around the letters), when I use it in complete darkness at settings over 15... (Sometimes I need more light as would be deemed normal, because of some particular eyesight problems.) Luckily, I'm not in that situation very often... and I hate reading a tablet (or a reader, for that matter) in complete darkness, and only do so when not wanting to disturb others.
