I loved my Kindle Touch that I got a year ago, and was hoping that the Paperwhite would be the same but with a superior backlighting technology as Amazon claimed. Sadly, there is some bad and very noticeable backlight bleed on the bottom, which makes it very distracting at any backlight level that isn't dark.
I will be sending this one back to Amazon, which is unfortunate since I had such high hopes for it. I guess you get what you pay for, which is not a lot in this case...
I had also ordered one for my sister for X-mas (backordered) but will be canceling that order now. What a product fail.
