Anyone using Night-Mode?

For anyone not knowing about it: The Odyssey has a unique (to eink readers) feature of "Night-Mode" display of a inverse (white text on black background) display when reading ePub.

I don't particularily like that it is called "night mode", but that might just be better sounding than "inverse". Always wondered, as have others, what the use might be for it. Eink is as easily readable at night no matter if black/white or white/black is used. Of course you will need some sort of light source. It still can be useful when a light can be made to shine only on the reader as to limit the amount of reflected light into the room. Every now and then I turn on night mode just to see what it is all about. Under artificial light it has almost the same quality as the normal mode. Almost, because the black part of the screen is more reflective than the white. Not actually more reflective, but reflections are easier to spot.

Now I am liking that so much that I have not switched back to the normal black text display. The only thing I needed to get used to is the white flash instead of the black flash. With the Odyssey beeing black the black background of the screen kind of blends in and makes the device even better looking as a whole, but that is just me.

What are your experiences with Night-Mode?
