If a file has been created using PDF with the reader in mind then it reads very well. ie. the file must be created using huge font sizes.
If you have lots of PDF files and are hoping to be able to read them using the reader then it probably wont work.
However, you can get thousands of books for free at this site and others for the reader. If you are into old books that are in public domain (Almost all the "Classics") The Reader is the device for you.
I use mine constantly.
To answer your first question, which device will work to read PDF files made for a computer size screen?
Actually it is worse than this. PDF's are made for full size pieces of paper on a printer, not for computer screens.. Even many computer screens are too small to show the text without scrolling. So the answer is the biggest screen you can get is the best. Today that would be the iLiad displayed in landscape with two pages per PDF page.
