Excellent Font Resolution, Love the Light, and Great Overall Experience 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.The form factor is also an amazing improvement. I like the tactile feel of the Kindle’s back, although I’m awaiting shipment of Amazon’s leather case because I like to take my Kindle everywhere and this device feels small and delicate, and I’ve liked the old Amazon leather case on my old Kindle.The one thing keeping me from giving this product a 5-star review is a software issue that really irks me: I paid the extra $20 to have a Kindle without advertising, yet the entire bottom half of the home screen in cover view is taken up with Amazon’s recommendations for me to buy new books.

I have been using the Paperwhite exclusively for reading for two weeks now vs. my other Kindles, and I am writing this review from the perspective of being a long-time Kindle user vs. someone brand new to the Kindle experience as well as in direct comparison to the Kindle Touch, which the Paperwhite replaced.From an overall standpoint, and considering everything you get (compact e-Reader,touch screen, lighting system), the Paperwhite is a very good e-Reader. I am amazed at how much smaller these e-Readers can become with each new generation yet still not feel like you’re losing anything from a “feels like a book” experience.To address the reading experience, I wasn’t sure what to expect with the display. Needless to say, the text on the screen is much more crisp than any of the other version of an e-Ink Kindle I have used, and just to ensure I wasn’t being biased I put the Paperwhite next to a Kindle 3 / Keyboard, a Touch, a “regular” Kindle, and a Kindle DX…
