Amazon Kindle Oasis
If you don't mind the high price, the Kindle Oasis is the best e-reader you can buy today.
Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight Plus
The new Nook GlowLight Plus probably isn't going to make any converts out of Amazon's Kindle customers, but at least Barnes & Noble now has an e-reader with competitive specs and performance to the Paperwhite.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite ( 2015)
The Kindle Paperwhite gets an HD screen, and while it isn't as big an upgrade as you'd think, it's a welcome addition, incrementally enhancing the Kindle reading experience.
Kobo Glo HD
Though its store still has room to grow, the Kobo e-reader offers a smooth, simple and user-friendly experience at a competitive price point.
Amazon Kindle Voyage
The Kindle Voyage is Amazon's best e-reader to date, and probably the best e-reader ever -- but it doesn't come cheap.
Amazon Kindle ( 2014)
For those who can live without an integrated light, the Kindle (2014) offers the full Kindle e-ink e-reading experience with little compromise for a budget price.
Kobo Aura H2O
Kobo's new e-book reader is designed for reading in the bath, by the pool or waiting grimly in the rain for your bus.
Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight
While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.
With its more portable design, the Kobo Aura is a worthwhile -- albeit pricier -- Kindle Paperwhite alternative for EPUB fans who don't want to be tied to Amazon's proprietary ecosystem.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite ( 2013)
While the "all-new" Paperwhite may seem like an unspectacular upgrade on the surface, it's a clear improvement over the original Paperwhite and arguably the best e-reader currently available.
