I'm sure the screen issue is real for some people, but it hasn't bothered me.
Yeah I have a K1. The battery life is great. But I don't mind having to charge something every night or two anyway, so it's not a deal breaker.

Sunlight reading isn't something I care about as I pretty much never read outdoors. I'm just an inside guy, it's almost always too hot or too cold outside (and I hate being hot or cold), I sunburn easily, I'm a magnet for insect bites etc.

If anything the non backlit screen has been an inconvenience more than a convenience as I've found more times where I don't have enough light to red comfortably (and didn't have a clip on book light with me) than I have times I was under the sun.

But it is super easy on the eyes in proper lighting, so I do love it for reading novels as I'm almost always doing that beside a lamp.
