On the other hand, I found the kindle touch way to annoying and returned it. It kept jumping chapters on me when I tried to turn a single page.
Edit: let me add the only disappointment in my DXG is with audiobooks. Having no wifi limits me.
Finally I made my mind: yesterday I ordered a brand new Kindle DX Graphite.
After infinite checks I decide that speed it's not a problem, from videos I can notice the difference with Touch but considering I want to read more and not flicker trough pages I appreciate the big picture of a bigger screen instead infinite small pages to turn.
PDF support appear also to be not so good in Touch, so again bigger screen will be a plus.
My only concern it's about point and translate since I need to scroll the doc using the mini joystick to point the single word, but hopefully will be not so slow.
No problem for me to be without wifi since I will transfer my files using PC. I listen audiobooks only with my iPod driving on highway so either this is not a problem.
I will receive it next Thursday at latest, really want to try it!
