Engadget Review

This is the third Paperwhite in as many years, and Amazon finally upgraded it with a high-resolution 300ppi screen. The rest of the changelog is pretty short, but that doesn't really matter; a great display combined with Amazon's web of content makes this Paperwhite the best Kindle for anyone who isn't a persnickety e-book nerd. Still, we wish some of the Voyage's more premium features (and that design) had trickled down to this thing.
