But I wanted the *best*, and an actual improvement over the other two (which I understood the PW to be, from the advertisements on the amazon page). So back it went.
The KFG1 and the KFHD7-32 both have lots of glare if angled wrong with bright overhead lights. Glare protectors tend to pixellate and distort the view and still do not block all glare.
The KK is good if one has good external lighting.
The PW supplies its own light and has absolutely no glare. Thus, IMHO, it is the best eReader to date if one only wants to read eBooks.
Of course, the KFG1 and the KFHD7-32 have far more uses than just being an eReader.
