(I suspect it's lack of CPU power that's the main problem when I try to view scanned/imaged based large-page PDFs.)
I guess I would need to root the device?
kindlepdfviewer is a lot better pdf reader than built-in reader, giving you almost everything you need to read scanned and textual pdfs comfortably and quickly.
I also have Kindle DX White.
You can install it even without rooting but i would suggest above mentioned method that uses launchpad and jailbraking.
It's simple and takes a few minutes.
If you happen to fail at some step, not a big deal, just do it all over again untill you succeed.
