Conclusion: The Barnes & Noble New Nook is one of our top picks among ereaders. It has a Pearl E Ink screen with a very well done touch user interface, it’s fast, it supports all manner of ePub with and without DRM, and it’s small and lightweight. The every sixth page turn refresh will please those who hate the flash to black during page turns (you’ll see it only every sixth page), but the drawback is a slightly less white background due to ghosting.
Pros: Sharp Pearl E-Ink display, great touch experience, great battery life, small and light.
Cons: WiFi shortens battery life considerably, some light ghosting of text.
