Neither, for me. I do experience problems with eyestrain on back lit LCD screens, but reading certain PDFs on eink is a pain of its own. It's a matter of being able to see the info on the screen the way I need to (and annotate easily), which in some cases is only feasible on a tablet or computer. It's a trade off but ultimately reading on the tablet is more productive, even having to take frequent breaks to relieve my eyes. But it really depends on the PDF content and what I need to do with it.
