Is e-ink really a better display than my Treo?

Believe me, I'm not posting this to cause trouble. But while reading on my Treo 700p, I noticed the crispness of the display, and the nice white background on my device.

I understand that the Treo will never compete with an e-ink reader because of screen size. Nor will it compete for viewing in direct sunlight. But it does have a distinct advantage in the dark because of the backlight, and page turns are very responsive.

So when I look at how nice the Treo display is, I have to ask the question... Is e-ink really any nicer than a really good LCD display like the one on my Treo 700p? I'm using a bold sans serif regular size font, which allows 13 lines of text on the screen. But like I said, it's really sharp looking. I'm thinking that e-ink may give more resolution, but won't look at white in the background, nor have that nice contrast and "easy to look at" feel.

Anyone have experience with both e-ink and a Treo 650 or Treo 700p?
