Amazing new Kindle is nearly perfect except for ads in the non-ad version

Summary: So far, I love my new Paperwhite Kindle. I've been using an aging keyboard Kindle 2, waiting for a version with a built-in light like this. Amazon really got it right with the light on this one. The high resolution screen is noticeably easier to read, and the user interface is well thought out.
Worthy upgrade over prior models but light is not even

Summary: Length: 9:13 Mins While I think this is a worthy upgrade over prior versions of the Kindle, there is some unevenness of the light which is most noticeable when in a pitch dark room. The light is not very uniform although still the best lighted e-ink available.
Excerpt: For many long years I was determined to be old fashioned about reading and rely solely upon the form of reading known as a book. Yes, a book as in a novel. Those large blocks of paper neatly bound into seven hundred page monstrosities that people used to carry around for fun and pleasure.
Pros: Everything .
Cons: All I can think of is that it's not in colour . . .
Excerpt: I got a kindle paper white as a Christmas present have to say it's probably one of the most used pieces of technology I own. It is very simple to use and I was able to use it straight away without any issues.
Excerpt: I upgraded from the old kindle to the paper white model but have not found it as easy to use The light however is a great I.provement. I find the leather case is quite heavy to carry in my handbag
Kindle Paperwhite is the next best thing to real books.

Excerpt: I bought my Kindle Paperwhite three years ago and since then, I've read over 500 books and it still works like new. Of course, there's Kindle apps that you could download on your PC or your phone, but reading on Kindle Paperwhite feels different -- it's like reading a physical book!
Pros: Doesn't strain my eyes when I read .
Cons: Doesn't have that all familiar book smell that I love though .
