You'd think people would be rushing to prove us wrong. (I mean, it's not that much more effort than randomly telling strangers on the internet that their opinion is invalid.)
So if you think we're all just nitpicking, do the following:
1) Turn your PW up to max light level in a dimly-lit room. (No significant external lighting, no sunlight.)
2) Take a photo with your phone with no flash, with the light setting present on-screen (so we can see you have it on 24)
3) Attach it to a message in this thread
Trust me, if you have a unit with no pink and green/blue or obvious unevenness, many of us would love to see it and/or will be quite jealous.
We've already seen sirmaru's and we know his has color blobs.
Today on the PW web site at Amazon 53 reviewers (one star voters) swear they see color blobs on their originals and on their replacements but 221 (5 star voters) can't see them at all and love their PW's.
I'm one of those 221. It appears most of the posters here are part of the 53.
Its like the flying saucer debates in the 1950's. Millions THOUGHT they saw flying saucers and some even submitted photos of them. However, hundreds of millions never saw them.
Some have already gone through 3 or more replacements and see color blobs on all. Many said my photos displayed color blobs. I can't see them at all. Yes, if one stares closely with the right lighting condtions, a faint coloring shows in places. For me that is totally irrelevant to the great attributes of the Paperwhite.
When LCD TV's first appeared, many folks went up real close and saw lots of defects in the pixels. They even photographed them. They said the cathode ray tube TV's would never be replaced by all those defective LCD TV's. Guess what, today no one even sells cathode ray TV's.
