That's unfortunate. I was hoping the readability issues wouldn't be a problem for you. The problem with many e-reader reviews and opinions is that some rate according to how good a gadget it is while others who read a lot judge according to how well it gets out of the way of actually reading -- that is, the device should never make itself noticed once you're immersed in a book. And you don't always know which bias they have when they put their thumbs up or down on a reader.

I think you would have been happy with the DR800 if it hadn't been a bad unit. As a heavy reader I sure am. I don't know what other options you have. There are plenty of great 6" readers (too small for me after experiencing 8.1") and pretty soon some 9" and 10" ones will arrive (which cross the line into "too big, too heavy" for me, unless maybe if it's just for keeping at home while reading on the couch).

You've already tried the only two I know of in the middle screen size. I can't think of anything to recommend, sorry. Whatever your choice, I hope you have better luck.
