But the ghosting and the contrast ...

I reviewed the iriver Story HD too and compared it very thoroughly to the Sony PRS-650, which has the same screen as the Amazon Kindle. I couldn't see any difference in contrast - absolutly none. And I didn't encounter any ghosting. There is more ghosting on the PRS-650 than on the Story HD.

However, the version I've tested was the basic one without wifi and google. Maybe those get produced and assembled somewhere else, with displays from a different factory ...

Here is another picture showing the Story HD side by side with the PRS-650. I couldn't see any contrast difference in real life and I can't see any in the picture:


You can find the full-size picture, along some others in my (german) iriver story hd review.
