I saw the dots but not the lines. I think people should check out these photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/ebouquin/6325693132/
but I never noticed it that bad, but maybe my lighting conditions were different.
The perfect ereader doesn't exist yet, manufacturers keep messing it up, it is like one step forward and then one step back. Amazon have got a lot right (including the font choice) but I don't want to read ePubs.
No doubt there'll be some new ereaders coming out in the next 6 months. If Sony can drop the glossy case then I might be tempted. Incidentally, I found the Sony to have the most reliable touch interface. On the Kobo and Odyssey I often had to touch more than once to get a response.
