With the light off, I prefer my Sony readers to the Nook screen.

I'd like to see the Kobo and Kindle interpretations, but it may be this kind of lighting is not for my eyes.

I like the idea of a lighted reader, but the Nook didn't convince me.
There is a video in the link below that shows the kindle paperwhite and the Nook Glow in a dark room. The paperwhite lighting is more even and white, whereas the lighting of the Nook Glowlight is bluish.

Comparison between the Nook Glowlight and the Paperwhite starts at around 5:00.
