Criteria Comments Rating
  • Display / readability Beautiful screen, with or without the backlight turned up. Super easy to read, with excellent resolution. great!
  • Battery life I charge it just for fun sometimes. Seriously though, if you don't keep the radio turned on except when you sync it lasts forever. Even with WiFi on it's great great!
  • Store and selection of titles Amazon store is just the beginning - check out the wealth of material at your local library! great!
  • Ease of use Just a bit of getting used to, but once you do it is a breeze to use. good
  • Document support No comments good
  • Storage capacity I don't tend to need even the 2GB it has on board, but since it is a downgrade from previous generation, I leave this at "good". good
  • Durability I haven't, but dropping this from a normal height would probably just scuff it a bit. great!
  • Design and form factor Love the feel of the device while reading and it looks great. great!
  • Portability (size / weight) Very light, fits in your pocket should you choose. I keep it in an awesome Pad and Quill case, which makes it just like a small hardcover book. great!
Detailed review
I have owned a Kindle 2, 3, and now this Paperwhite, and it is by far the best eReader I have had. I have read more books in the 2 months I have owned the device than I had the previous 12!
