I don't have strong feelings about the quality of frontlights. I think they are all pretty good now. However, the Glowlight 3 is the only 6" reader that offers the color change. So I could see it being considered best in class.

Honestly, it was just the way you said it's not the best, but then never backed it up in any way that intrigued me. I thought maybe you had one that was the best and a reason for it.

So the nG3's partitioned memory is better then the Aura2's non-partitioned memory?
Maybe I wasn't clear enough. I was talking about the hardware. Even in the message you quoted I did say "While I like the Kobo software, I'd give it up today for the Glowlight 3 if they hadn't so severely partitioned the memory" so I'm pretty sure you knew what I was talking about.

The Tolino Vision 4HD has a color changing light and it is using 6" Carta screen. I can't say which is better.

We don't have Tolino here.

Because I'm a nerd, if/when I take a trip to Europe, I plan on going into stores to check out the different e-readers available there.

Reference deleted. Could you have found a less offensive way of saying that in your opinion, the "Toledo" is garbage?

On a different note, where did you obtain your Tolino ereader and which model was it? Shipping to North America does not seem popular with a lot of European etailers.

Before today I don't think I even knew the Tolino existed. Now I'm curious why it was (is) "garbage."
