Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
REVIEW

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.

Amazon Kindle Voyage
REVIEW

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.

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight
REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

Kobo Mini

The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.

Sony Reader PRS-T2
REVIEW

Sony Reader PRS-T2 ( red)

The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.
