The latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite White is more durable, fully dunkable and ultimately the best Kindle reader for most people -- especially if you snag it during one of Amazon's frequent sales.
The Paperwhite remains the better overall value, but the updated Kindle Oasis secures its position as the best e-reader if price is no object.
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.
Although the Paperwhite remains the Kindle to get, the cheapest Kindle now includes an integrated light, plus an improved design that makes it more appealing.
The Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
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.
The Kindle itself is a smashing piece of kit, but Amazon's digital bookstore just isn't ready for us to invest in. Using competing bookstores with the Kindle isn't possible and we couldn't find a single one of the 15 books we searched for. Grudgingly, we have to recommend more flexible ebook readers, despite the Kindle's impressive capabilities
It used to be that the Kobo was the cheap, no-frills option, but, due to its price and feature set, the new Amazon Kindle has taken its place. If you're looking for something that will do its job decently for as low a price as you can find, the Kindle is definitely worth a look.
The BeBook Club offers features that lower-priced readers do not, but for AU$249 it would have been nice to see at least a dictionary or Wi-Fi thrown in, too.
Though the Kobo Wireless eReader is a serviceable e-book reader with built-in Wi-Fi, it's worth spending the extra money to get the Kindle or the Nook instead.
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.
The $69 Amazon Kindle is an excellent no-frills e-book reader for anyone who’s willing to forgo a built-in light or a touch screen.
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.
Though the Kobo eReader Touch Edition doesn't quite measure up to the Nook Touch or the Kindle, it's a respectable and affordable touch-screen e-reader with a lot of pluses.
Kobo has updated its 6.8-inch waterproof e-reader with an improved design, more memory and an improved integrated lighting scheme.
Though it has a hard time competing with Apple's iPad in terms of functionality, the less-expensive 2010 Kindle DX will appeal to those looking for a large, dedicated e-reader with an e-ink display.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
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.
