I have 3 ereaders of different size, the PRS 300, the 505 and the DX Graphite. So i have a 5", 6" and 9,7" devices.

For professional reading, mainly PDF journal papers with lots of graphs and images, plus technical books, the Kindle does a very good job. I stopped printing papers completely, and books are all in PDF form now with me, so i never carry them. The image has a very good quality and the details are surprisingly satisfactory, even for those graphs with little dots and small print. I wish Sony had a reader that size but until then i will be happy with the Kindle.

For pleasure, i read in my PRS 300. The size really feels comfortable in my hand and the amount of text is good enough. The page turning is a non issue for me since i hardly notice it. I also usually read with the smallest font size, so i am not turning the page every second, which might help. I always liked paperbacks and i think the 505 is somewhat too big to feel snug enough in my hand. I never really use the 505 now. I carry the 300 everywhere and really like its small size. That is the closest thing to my old paperbacks that i carried with me everywhere, in my pockets, or my backpack. I just have to be careful and never forget to put it in a plastic hardcase i got that really fits the device and ensures protection against everything (i even sat on it one day by mistake and the box was intact).
