Conclusion: We like it

With the Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon has come closer than ever to delivering an e-book reader without compromises. It retains the long battery life of earlier e-ink Kindles, and adds a sharper, higher-contrast display, a more responsive touchscreen, and faster, more fluid page-turns. And with the addition of its new frontlight, it's not just possible to use the Kindle in the dark; it's actually enjoyable. The frontlight helps out under artificial and natural light as well, to minimize shadows and boost contrast. No, the display doesn't look quite like paper, and e-ink's limitations mean that navigating on the Paperwhite is still a little sluggish compared to a tablet. For those with a big nook-based e-book library, the Simple Touch with Glowlight remains a very good product; and the basic $69 Kindle is worth considering if you're on a very tight budget. But the Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-ink e-book reader out today, and the product we recommend above the competition.
