I had my first Kindle (paperwhite 2nd gen) replaced because there were lots of dust-like spots on it (as others have mentioned). They were not easy to see, so it took me a few days to notice them.
The second one I received had the same issue, except that the screen looked much more yellow (first one was pretty much white and bright) and also there was a shadow at one corner.
The third Kindle, received just today, still has the dust spots and its brightness is even less than the previous one.
They are now sending me a 4th Kindle. I told the CS representative that if all of them have these spots, then I'm fine with it and I don't want another replacement, but she said the spots were not normal.
I don't have much hope. In fact each Kindle I receive is worse than the previous one. At first I was impressed with how easily the CS sends a replacement, but now I feel like they don't have any quality control and thus know themselves that they are shipping crap to people.
I'm also confused about the displays. Right now I am putting the 3 Kindles side by side and each one has a different brightness. How's that possible?! (brightness put on max on all three)
Anyone else experiencing these issues? Any ideas?
