Now that I have my PW, and having played with both the Kobo and Nook models, there is absolutely NO comparison...
I have to agree with the others here, too, that sliding the light down to 1 or 2 makes it pretty much "off" in my opinion.
Exactly! You only know it's on if you're in a room with no light on at midnight. Other than that, it sure as heck looks like it's off! It's so minimal it might as well BE off. There's zero eye strain at the lowest level and if someone does get eyestrain from that, give up reading. You've got bigger issues to deal with & get yourself to an eye doctor ASAP!
