It is much more even than any other lighting source that can be used on the road or in a tent in camp. All the *text* area is lit nicely. The bottom shadows do not bother me at all. The uneven area in the top with its brighter dashes is more distracting, but when I keep the light at low level (which I do even on PaperWhite) not bad.
I have already installed poterm terminal emulator and vftpd ftp server, and I am going through Russian and German forums like I did during the "Good Old Times" when PB360 was the king. This time the situation is aggravated by the fact that PocketBook doesn't sell their devices in USA, so there are fewer English speaking PB owners.
I wish they created a five inch version with lit screen in PB360 style ... sigh. It is SO convenient being able to slip it into a pocket ...
As far as I am aware, there is no lit five inch device on the market.
