I bought my first kindle paperwhite 2 weeks ago and I noticed that the top of the screen was bothering me, particularly when using the menu or home screen. I found the top left of the display lined up nicely with the bezel, but the top right of the screen actually sits about 2 millimeters too low, exposing a gray/black border between the viewable display area and the bezel, so amazon sent me a replacement,
now with this replacement I have the same problem only now it is the right of the display is lined up nicely but the left is 2 millimeters too low which also exposes a gray/black border between the display and bezel.

is this a common problem with the Paperwhites?

My first Basic model had a similar problem, buy my Paperwhite is fine.

I have this problem too. The top right corner shows a little grey border but in my kindle is not too noticeable. Really annoying for me.
