    I'm very happy with my Kindle Paperwhite. It is lightweight and the battery lasts for weeks. The screen is super crisp and is easy to read in any light.

    I upgraded from an old Kindle and I love the paperwhite screen. Super easy on the eyes, and nice not to have an external light attached. Finally figured out how to use overdrive, so I am enjoying the library book checkout system now.

    The Kindle Paperwhite is the closest thing to an actual book page with the advantage that you can read in a dark room.

    Purchased this for my 11 yr old who always has her nose in a book. Was concerned the transition from book to reader might not fit her style. SHE LOVES IT. Perfect size and the screen resolution and lighting is excellent.

    This is better than the original. A bit more compact, waterproof, and faster. It seems to take longer to wake up, but overall I'm happy with it. The extra LEDs make the screen more uniform. I love that I can read for hours without the eye fatigue common to laptop or phone screens.

    This is a nice upgrade from the basic Kindle. Back lighting is good and having the bezel be flush with the screen is a real plus.

    Compared to the newer cheaper Kindle, which also includes a backlight, this is a far better deal. Higher resolution, waterproofing, and a flush screen that does not allow dust and dirt to collect as easily make this the best value e-reader for most people.
