Technical books...

Trying to get some input on this, looking for a Ereader that is good for technical books related to IT. O'Reilly etc. Keep hearing that certain readers are pretty bad at .pdf which seems to be the preferred medium for these books.

What's the most popular?

Regards,
Joe W

For PDF I'd say the best choice is a tablet (iPad, 9-10" Android). For an eInk reader maybe a 9.7" device like the Onyx Boox M92?

Ditto. I'm guessing that pdf reflow is not going to be friendly to technical books likely with diagrams etc (don't have a reader with reflow so I can't say with certainty).

When you reflow a PDF, everything except text generally disappears.
