I got a kindle for christmas and its cool and everything but e-ink is the most annoying thing i have ever experienced. the screen flashes every time you turn the page or scroll. i thought there was something wrong with mine, or a setting. no. it says on the welcome screen the flashing you see is the ink technology. its ab noxious. its like having a 500ms response time. (standard lcd is 5ms) lastly, you cant hardley see it. its like black ink against a grey background. i have 2 lights in the center of my room and the room is 8 x 10 and its still hard to read because there isnt enough light. if your used to reading websites and articles online with a standard white background you wont like this. great for outside i suppose. but so far really hard to read. enlarging text on pdf is a nightmare as well. everything jumps from normal to huge so no matter what if you change the size even at its smallest adjustment you have to scroll. there is no way my eyes could get used to that flashing every page turn or scroll. bye bye kindle your going back. knew i should have just got an ipad.
