Thanks I am waiting for more pics that close up so far people have taken them too far away.

It arrived about an hour ago.

And this is par for the course with the local post office. Last month I ordered some knitting supplies that spent a couple of weeks in Detroit before finally entering California. And then spent another week ping ponging between the distribution center and "out for delivery."

I'm somewhat disappointed as there is a "dead pixel" (not sure what you call it on an e-ink device) in one corner of the screen. I'm debating whether to exchange it or ignore it. I only noticed it because it showed up as a white spec on the kindle hillside during boot-up.

Ah yes the the stuck pixel we call it. even thought its not really a pixel. It's up to you if it doesn't bother while reading then I wouldn't worry about it but if it does then exchange it.

It seems both the pinholes and stuck pixel issue have not been resolved. Bad Amazon! At least the color blobs are gone though I never had any, others suffered various forms of it.

My PW 2013 is the best eReader I've ever seen. I pity the poor folk listening to all these pinhole and stuck pixel reports and choosing not to buy it.

Some of those folks may actually be going back to print books with fonts forcing a new pair of glasses.

I will probably keep it.

I read for an hour on it last night, and pretty much forgot the defect was there. I can find it if I intentionally look for it (or with a solid black background), but it doesn't interfere with the text in any way.

Just make sure you are happy. If not Amazon will exchange it. I got a good PW1 on the first try while many others did not. However when the K4 first came out I got a bad one and kept the replacement. I was never happy with it. It would take a year before the K4B came out and I bought that to replace that I was finally happy. I love my K4B its contrasts is superior to any unlit reader I have seen. My PW1 contrast is okay as long I use my own font but I am very happy with it.

If I get a PW2 I am going to wait till the third batch is out at least. I did that last time with PW1 and got a really good one except it does have two tiny pin holes but you only can see them if you go looking for them and they do not interfere at all with my reading.

I haven't been on here since late Monday when I reported an Amazon or Lasership snafu. The next morning the tracking updated and it was out for delivery and Lasership delivered at 2pm Tuesday.

It came with the purple paperwhite cover and another weighty item in a box (those items were on a separate order from last week).

I'm happy with my PW2. I still like my basic 2012 basic kindle ($69 one). Nice having the light though!

I received one that had faint pink and green background and some other problems, and got a replacement that is very yellow, and has some sparkling dust particles between the screens. On first impulse, I am inclined to say that it causes more eye strain than my PW1, because the contrast between the definitely not black font and yellow background is not as good as on my blotchy PW1 even, but I am trying to read a bit in the low light settings I would usually do it in, to determine whether to keep the second one, or send them both back for now, and maybe try again in a few months or wait for the PW3.

I like that is feels faster than my PW1, though I am not sure how much of it is due to the fact that my PW1 has hundreds of books on it.

I tried to do close-ups but it's really hard to get them without the camera automatically adjusting the white balance, sorry :s

That's how I felt about my PW2's, xendula. They actually hurt my eyes because the contrast just wasn't as good as my PW1. The screen was so yellow and the text lighter than on on my PW1. Even though I didn't see colors on them, it was actually a worse experience reading for me.
