Hi guys,
I just received two KPW 2013, but they have different tint on the displays.
Which one would you choose if you were me?

Sorry, but I'm not going to a site that I know nothing about.

It's subjective. Choose the one you prefer.

According to Google is a Bulgarian site. I looked at it from the Google translate page and it is a photo display site like many others I've seen.

OP: if it were me I'd choose the one on the left.

Thank you, I also think that the unit on left is more like PaperWHITE:)
I am sorry, that I didn't explain about the site I gave- it is completely harmless and like many others for photo-sharing.
I would appreciate more opinions:)
Is everyone agreed that the unit on left looks better?

The one on the left seems to have a whiter background. Do you know if it's newer? Are they both updated with the latest version of the software?

Yes, they both are running and they both seem to be from the newer batch.
I was also very surprised when I saw the difference...and I do have a bit of troubles to decide which one should be as a keeper:)
The one on right is very yellow, from 5 units I got- 3 were with exactly the same yellow tint, two other (including the unit on left on the photos I gave) were a lot whiter...strange..

Anyone? Please, give me some more opinions, guys..

As I stated earlier, it's subjective. Choose the one that you find most appealing. You're the one that will be using it.

Which did you decide to keep? I just received a replacement PW2 yesterday and the screen, even when the light is turned up all the way has a definite yellow tint, like the one on the right in your photo. The PW2 that it is replacing has a much brighter/whiter display, like yours on the left. Very noticeable difference when I compare them side by side. I am still deciding if I am going to keep the replacement or send it back for another replacement and hope for a white/brighter display (which is what I'm sued to at this point).
