Best e-book readers of 2014


Looking for an e-book reader? You have more choices than ever before--though the number of models we at CNET can enthusiastically recommend is actually pretty short. Presented below are our favorite black-and-white e-ink models, including some that have built-in lighting. All of these models are priced between $69 to $149, and offer longer battery life and a more "paperlike" reading experience than color LCD tablets. Note that many of the competing models are closely matched, so be sure to read the full reviews (and the stories linked below) before making a buying decision.

Best overall e-reader

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2013)

Aunque la promoción de un Paperwhite “totalmente nuevo” suena como una actualización poco espectacular en la superficie, es una mejora clara sobre la original Paperwhite y sin duda el mejor e-reader disponible actualmente.

4.5 stars Sobresaliente

Best ad-free e-ink reader

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight

Aunque no necesariamente vence al Kindle Paperwhite, el Nook GlowLight es un excelente lector electrónico que vale la pena considerar si no quieres ingresar al ecosistema de Amazon.
