Question PDF Conversion - Examples?

Hi All,

I am interested in purchasing a Sony eReader for reading many of my IT books. Currently I use my Tablet PC for reading these eBooks, but the eye strain from reading a computer screen is getting too much for me. I have seen and handled a Sony eReader in a brick and mortar store and I love it's form factor, size, and most of all...display.

I know that the eReader has issues displaying PDF documents, but what I am wondering is how much difference do some of the tools that have emerged, such as RasterFarian, make when reading PDF documents on the eReader? Most all my eBooks are in DRM-Free PDF format so PDF is what I have to go with. I was looking at the iRex iLiad, as it seems to handle PDFs better, but the price is just out of my reach.

Does anyone have any before/after photos of PDF documents that have been converted using some of the tools available? I have not yet purchased an eReader as I wanted to get a chance to see what I could expect for PDF display, so any photos would be very helpful to me. Thanks everyone.
