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.

REVIEW

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
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 Paperwhite
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite ( 2013)

This is the best ebook reader in the world right now. Providing you can spare more than £100 to read books, you won't be disappointed.

Kobo eReader Mini
REVIEW

Kobo eReader 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.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is a great ebook reader, with a built-in light that makes for clear, comfortable reading, even in the dark. Buying books direct from Amazon is a breeze, though there's still no support for the popular .epub file format.

REVIEW

Amazon Kindle ( fall 2011)

Amazon has slimmed down the Kindle to make it even more affordable, without cutting too many corners. It's a bargain that will let you enjoy the best ebook ecosystem around.

Samsung E60
REVIEW

Samsung E60

The Samsung E60 ebook reader is simply too expensive and too difficult to use. If you're after a smooth design and higher functionality, get yourself an Amazon Kindle instead.

ViewSonic VEB612
REVIEW

ViewSonic VEB612

The ViewSonic VEB612 is small and light, and its design is quite attractive, but the software is far too buggy for us to recommend this device at the moment, especially given its high price tag. We'd advise those looking for a similar-sized ebook reader to check out one of Sony's models instead
