Haha yes, same sentiments!! I find that by reading outdoors or in the daylight, there's not really a need for any additional light but reading in the night without the additional light might feel more straining on the eyes. I'll just give the other recommendations a shot and see if my eyes can adjust to it. After all like what you said, indeed there's no right or wrong setting!

Just wondering about the new Paperwhite's screen, whether it's more scratch resistant? I think I read somewhere that it was, but maybe I'm wrong.

I got the new Paperwhite this weekend and I'm loving it so far! I don't read for long in the dark before going to bed but I haven't noticed any eyestrain more than normal with the light. I just have to lower the light setting. Yes, the thin box was great. LOL. I am "christening" it with Fools and Mortals by Bernard Cornwell.

I've seen comments on the battery in the new reviews. I haven't had enough experience yet to know if there are issues. I'm not thinking so, but not sure yet. I'd have to charge to 100% and test. I have charged it a few times since receiving last week. It hasn't gotten to 0%, but it did get to 21% yesterday after reading a few hours. I'll have to test this later.

I also need to just leave it sitting a few hours on wireless at home to finish indexing. A lot of my covers are still missing and all percentages reading progress are out of sync and reset.

So, I received mine today to replace my Voyage that has become unusable. I also have a PW 2 to compare it to. In brief, the PW 4 seems superior to the PW 2 in every way -- smaller, lighter, faster, better screen and light, etc. The Voyage has the clearest screen, but the lighting on the PW is better in that it has less of a color gradient. After the Voyage, I don't want to go back to a recessed screen. I would have been more than happy to keep the Voyage, but I couldn't justify buying another one after the one I had began to deteriorate after two years until it finally became unusable a month or two ago. Solamente mis dos colones.

It got PW today with Firmware version 5.10.0.2.
But customer font doesn't work.
I copied font to 'fonts' in Kindle and tried open User's Guide but there is not custom in "Aa".
Is there someone like me?
