Which e-reader for PDF files ?

Hello,
I have read many comments about e-readers, but I don't know still which one would be the best for me... I want a reader for professional use, because I read a lot of PDF documents and PDF books but it's not easy on a computer screen.. and wearying for eyes.
So :

- use mainly for PDF files & PDF books
- a screen >= 9 inches because I think 6 inches models are really small (and not optimal for PDF)
- the wireless is an option but not mandatory for me. I have my laptop always with me, so I can transfert files and charge the e-reader with it.

I want to know if there was a big difference between e-link Perl (like Kindle & Sony) and older versions because the PocketBook Pro seems to be a good object but it's not e-link Pearl ?

Is it possible to read PDF files which have a size of 20-30 Mo ?
Thank you.

(Excuse my english... I am french..)

Here is the comparison between Vizplex (2nd Gen eInk) and Pearl (3rd Gen eInk).

On the other hand, there is currently no ereader that offers large screen and good pdf support. I would wait until later this year when new products roll out, Onyx Boox M90 for example.

Thank you for the link.
It seems you can order the Onyx Boox M90 here (or pre-order I don't really know) : http://www.onyxboox.fr/boutique/onyx-boox/onyx-boox-m90
But.. it's really expensive : €474.81 ! (if it's the true information)

Unfortunately, large e-ink e-readers aren't cheap.

I am also interested in that device, but the price is out of this world!
