And loving it! After I customized it to my preferences and downloaded a few books and started reading, I really love it. I'm reading the LOTR trilogy again, but on Kindle. So far it's an enthralling experience. ;P

I got mine today, too. Unfortunately at the bottom of the screen there are blotchy dark areas. Not super dark, just not a nice homogeneous background, kind of clouded. Can people confirm that this isn't normal-- it is supposed to be a nice smooth white background top to bottom, right?

Congrats, JP. and yeah, welcome to the uhmmm...Klub

No, the three little shady triangles at the bottom are normal. That's where the 4 led light patterns cross, before they hit the scatter array that casts the light across the screen.

Kind of like a line of street lamps. You'll stop noticing it after a while.

Peachy Pat: No, this is my second Kindle... sort of. I bought a KK, had it replaced because the plastic cracked, had the next one replaced because of malfunction issues, and then cracked the screen on the third KK a few days ago. I ordered this one off Amazon, liking the look of the PW. I do like it, but it has a greenish hue in the top half of the screen. I think I'll get used to it, but if I don't, I'll get a replacement, probably, from what I have read on here, with the same or worse discolorations.

Helen VH: That is normal. A lot of people seem not to be able to live with it, but the LED lights don't bother me; every single PW has them and there is nothing to be done about them. :]

Here is what it should look like, according to Amazon, in various lighting conditions.

Edit - forgot to add link <smh>

That is at its best. YMMV.

The thing is, it's something I'd do and I'd even <jsmh> but I wouldn't necessarily admit to it. lol
