The smoothness of the fonts is great to my eyes, it's how paper on text looks. Comparing it to the K2 screen really shows me how jagged the text looked on the old Kindle.
Early K2 screen was the worst of all Kindles. However, two K2 I bought (weeks before K3 came out) have nearly Pearl screen look, production must have improved overtime. I am not touching PW for a few more months, hopefully Amazon will refine its production process soon.
