Got it from Sam's club.
I only have the problem when I use the device for long time. I was charging it for couple hours then when I turned it on the screen was fine but after 15 minutes of reading the spots came back.

I also got mine from Sams last Friday (Mckinney, Texas) and its perfect with no issues or blemishes. Well, except for having to find a work around for Flash, but that goes without saying. Lol A little fiddling around fixed that though.

The unit I got from Sams is fine. Sad to see yours isn't.

I went back to Sam's club and they looked at the device and saw the yellow spots on the screen. It took me 15 minutes to walk out of the door with a new unit.
Let's hope this doesn't happen to anyone.
