Which Ebook reader is easiest on the eyes?

by Berabouman / February 7, 2013 7:03 PM PST

Thinking of getting one, I'm not very concerned with wi-fi support, size, memory capacity etc, but I am concerned about getting one which is easy on the eyes.

I plan to read a lot away from my computer (which I find can be pretty taxing for long periods of prolonged usage) so that is my first criteria. Price is probably my second. Happy

I've done some reading of user reviews and such, but there doesn't seem to be a definite winner in the "easy on the eyes" category.

Can anyone help with information/suggestions? Thanks in advance!

My recommendation: try it yourself in the e-reader-shop.

You'll want to see them.

Nod to the paper white units. But unless you try them, you may be upset at using reviews or replies to pick one.

I like my Kindle Fire, but for reading only, Paper White

I hear great reports for the Kindle Paper White, if all you want is to read books & articles. Personally I like my Kindle Fire because it has a nice color screen and it can do most of the things you do on a real computer including email, 'net surfing, and some games.

Good luck.
