With very complex technical drawings that use many colours, the M92 is not a good option. Keep in mind it only has 16 levels of grey. If you have a drawing in which you need to be able to tell the difference between five different shades of green, for example, the M92 will simply not be up to the task. Then again, I have never encountered such a problem until now, although I tend to use the device several hours per day for academic use. With regard to physics and programming, I think you are on the safe side. Concerning books about biology, I lack the experience to judge their readability.

If you have a specifically nasty image or piece of text and want to be sure if the M92 fits your needs, send it to me and I will take a photograph for you.
That's a bummer..

Does it feel comfortable though to read technical books on m92? On many places(stackoverflow) I read about Kindle DX that it's annoying as you can't skim forward and backwards in the same way as in a book, something that is essential for technical books according to some commentors. Don't you sometimes get annoyied and wish you had a book instead?

I am not sure what should be concidered nasty. Never seen the capabilities of ereaders. However I link 2 pdfs down with their pages in case you have time. You don't have to take snapshots. It's enough if you just tell me that they look fine

Some examples I found: (page 48) (page 51)
