We all make our own choices, and yours is a valid one.
I am on the other side of the user spectrum to yourself (in total agreement with Hans's post before).
I love reading, I love quality. E-ink screens (especially Perl) deliver that experience for me. I won't watch movies on it, or play video games, or browse the internet. I just want to read. And for this, I'm happy to pay.
Higher resolution and better contrast can only be a good thing IMO.
I only hope there's enough of us out there to keep the E-Ink industry going as a sustainable business.
