If you don't mind the high price, the Kindle Oasis is the best e-reader you can buy today.
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.
The affordable e-book reader brings touch to its latest low-end, bargain-basement model.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
The 6-inch touchscreen-sporting Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 gives you everything you could want from an ebook reader. If you're not bothered about music or expandable memory, its smaller sibling -- the Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 -- is a more attractive proposition.
The addition of a touchscreen makes the 5-inch Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 a very slick little ebook reader.
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
Ever wanted a device that can let you read books, listen to music and record voice memos? Chances are you probably haven't. But, if you have, then the iriver Story may be the gadget for you. And, as it happens, it's actually a pretty good ebook reader into the bargain
The Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 is our favourite ebook reader among those currently on the UK market. It lacks advanced functionality, but it delivers an affordable and highly satisfying digital reading experience
In many ways, we prefer the Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 to Amazon's Kindle. But it's a more expensive product and its glossy screen detracts too much from the reading experience. It's a capable device, and a good choice for students, but we prefer most competing ebook readers overall
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
The Elonex eBook has a lovely screen and lightweight chassis, but it's let down by fiddly controls, slow, buggy software and an anorexic features list. It's no match for Sony's venerable, metal-clad Reader PRS-505, let alone the Kindle, which is expected to arrive in the UK soon
The Interead Cool-er has decent format support and a good screen, but it's outclassed in nearly every department by the Sony Reader PRS-505. As they cost roughly the same, it's hard to see why anyone would choose the Cool-er
Relatively small and compact, Endless Ideas' BeBook has an impressive screen, good file-format support and exceptional battery life. Due to an unappealing appearance and sluggish, illogical menu system, however, it can't really compete with the Sony Reader PRS-505, even though the BeBook costs more
