http://www.cnet.com/uk/topics/ereaders/best-e-book-readers/ is suggesting Amazon paperwhite or Kindle.

Just wondering anyone who owns this thinks or maybe they have a better suggestion.

Thanks

Just for your info, an Amazon paperwhite is a Kindle.

I'm guessing that the implied distinction is between the 'standard' Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite.

Regardless, I can recommend the Kindle Paperwhite as a great eReader. It can handle PDFs, but you'll need a converter if you want to use it for EPUBs.

kindle paperwhite all day long for books
what do you use word and PDF docus for? i'm not a fan of reading them on e-ink screens, and prefer to use an LCD tablet for them. similarly, i don't like using an LCD tablet/display (eg ipad, phone) for books. if you have access to a tablet that you can use for this, that may help you make a more informed choice about the rest of your usage
my recommendation is kindle paperwhite all day long. (i just upgraded mine to voyage, but paperwhite is a better value product and the voyage was a luxury if somewhat unnecessary purchase.) backlit screen is a game changer. it can allow any format through calibre and has access to the kindle lending library (should you get prime) and a larger selection of books that can be bought compared to the alternatives (which run along the lines of nook/barnes and noble, kobo and sony, what feel now like 'also-rans' in the e-reader market)
I got my voyage for sub-£100 nearly new. paperwhite can be bought within your budget new i think (on deal days)

Yes that is what I mean. Thanks for clarifying.

Thanks for your detailed reply. Looks like paperwhite it is. I am tempted to pay the extra £10 to be ad free. The price is the same everywhere so will pop into John Lewis to get the extra peace of mind.
