bad pixels or something like that on kobo

Hi everyone,

I bought a kobo at wallmart this weekend and noticed a lot (7-8) inverted tiny pixels (black when should be white, white when should be black) so I got it replaced. On the new one, I noticed a few tiny dead pixels (4-5). It is a lot less disturbing than the inverted ones and I don't want to change it again to get a worse problem on the next one. You have to look at it closely to notice them.

I am just wondering if this was normal with this kind of eink devices.

Thanks
