Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review
The good: The Kindle Paperwhite boasts the best screen we've seen to date on an e-ink e-reader. The built-in light is great for nighttime reading, and the touch screen is a notch above the competition. Amazon's e-book selection remains best in class. Battery life is excellent so long as you turn Wi-Fi off.
The bad: It could be a tad lighter, an AC adapter isn't included (just a Micro-USB cable for charging), and there's no memory expansion slot. The ad-free version costs $20 more.
The bottom line: With an excellent built-in light and Amazon's best-in-class e-book selection, the Kindle Paperwhite rises to the top of the e-reader pack.
