    Best device to read magazines on?

    Hello,

    i currently have a epaper ereader which is horrible to read magazines on.

    What is the cheapest device i can buy which would be best for reading magazines , it would not really be used for anything else

    Thanks

    I used a Nook HD+, which has a 1920x1080 9 inch screen.

    Magazines and PDF's look great on it.

    I'm probably not allowed to mention it, but I'm currently selling one on the For Sale section.

    Thank you :-)

    How does everything display full page and is readable? Or do you have to keep zooming in and out a lot to see text around images?

    How is it on the eyes compared to eink

    It's like any tablet. It's a backlit screen so if you used it for hours you'd get eyestrain, which you don't get with eink.

    I can only compare it to a first gen kindle. So it's much higher resolution and colour.

    You basically need as big a screen as possible, with as high a resolution. Even a 10 inch screen won't be as big as a magazine, so you may need to zoom in and pan around a bit.

    PS the IT guy i work with to stop eye strain has changed colours from black writing on white background, to black writing onto a white background.

    Isn't that the same?

    I agree with retina, it's a lot clearer and you can fit a full a4 page on the screen. 1080p just isn't big enough enough and you have to magnify or crop to use it. A black page with white writing is a lot easier on the eyes and is supposed to lower power consumption on local led backlit displays.
