I've never found that reading on the PW was anything like reading on LCD displays.
But I also rarely read the PW in complete darkness; the advantage of the frontlight is that it counteracts the otherwise somewhat dim e-ink screens on e-readers.
I.e., when I first started using e-readers, I found that the 75w bulbs I used in my reading lights were not quite bright enough. I upgraded to 100w bulbs and it was approximately the same as reading a paperback with a 75w bulb.
But with the frontlight, I have no problem comfortably reading the PW with a 75w bulb, a 60w bulb, or even just from overhead lighting - the frontlight compensates, but without looking like it is illuminating the screen.
