Of course looking at it on a computer screen doesn't necessarily give a fair impression of what it would look like in real life.

Text on the PW looks too thick to me. In their everlasting quest for a better illusion of contrast with no real improvements since 2010, Amazon have been making text thicker with each new Kindle version and firmware update to the point where it looks bold. I hoped the higher resolution would make for more precise and delicate fonts but no, still more boldness.

Here's the K4B screenshot. I think the Condensed font is bleh but seeing it's what's being compared to. I find the contrast on my K4B to the best I've seen on eReader. I haven't see anything but pics of a PW but I have seen K3, K4S, T1 and KT. I own the first two. I am shock a eReader so cheap can look so good.

Blossom,

That's the best eReader page i've ever seen. Why do you want to DOWNgrade?

I don't. The PW was to be used for night time reading. I can't use a book light or lighted cover due to a husband who is grumpy if I do.

Right now I use my KFv1 for that so I'll just get KFHD and call it good. I hear they are nicer to hold now too.

Font comparison on Paperwhite and Touch

Can someone tell me how to match the font caecilia (size 5) on my PW2 to be exactly the same size as regular font (size 4) on K4B?
I would very appreciate every suggestion you give me.

When I asked my wife -- who doesn't use an e-Ink eReader -- which eReader she thought had the best fonts between a Touch, K4S, K4B, T2, K3, NST and NST w/ Glowlight -- she consistently chose the K4B. Amazon got it right with the K4B. I hope they keep selling these for years.

It's a nice little eReader I don't use mine anymore though but out of all my eInk eReaders it would be the one I would keep if I had to pick one. I prefer my Nexus 7 tablet to read on. It has everything I've ever wanted in eReader. I can no longer stand reading on eInk.
