Best 10" or larger ereader for PDFs?

Are there any large format ereaders that treat PDFs as first class citizens?

Various apple tablets. My Samsung does it well as does my Kindle Fire. I'm sideloading everything.

The Boox Note Air 3 is probably what you want. NeoReader has a zillion PDF formatting options.

Looking at their website. Looks like they have a tablet also that is ePaper, while the Notes Air is eInk. What's the difference between eInk and ePaper?

eInk is the largest brand of e-paper -- the Kleenex of facial tissues, if you will.

In a perfect world, I would love a 13" color eInk devices. But at that size, we're at the price of an iPad. Though the iPad doesn't have eInk or the insane battery life, it has more features and is worth the price tag.

Do any devices have a 300 PPI screen, like the Kindle Scribe?

Quite a few do. Oddly, they are all Kaleido colour screens.

I've had two models of 10.3″ eink. Grossly inferior to a TCL NxtPaper 11 for PDFs.

The 300 dpi Kaleido are not comparable quality to 300 dpi mono. The 2 x 2 pattern of printed coloured dots doesn't come off. Also need the front light on, when a mono eink doesn't need it.

Personally I would recommend a 10.3" Onyx Boox Note Air 3 (C) or the 13.3" Boox TabX. If you really need to read and work with a lot of PDFs that were meant to be printed or viewed in A4 size, devices with at least a 10" screen (roughly equalling A5, but you can crop the margins to disply the text a bit bigger) are the best option.

Sure, the TabX is really expensive, but in the long run and in an academic/professional setting where reading is a huge part of one's job it is well worth it.

The Boox Tabx is only 207dpi screen and might have poor battery life compared to non-Android eink without the turbo feature. It's also a crazy £880! A TCL NxtPaper 11 is about €250. The 14 should be out soon.

The Scribe 10.2″ is 300 dpi and £380 for 32 G version.

The other mono eink 10.3″ readers are 227 dpi. I've had two of them.
The Sage 8″ has more pixels than the mono eink 227 dpi 10.3″ readers because it's got 300 dpi. £250 for 32 G.

Well, these are your recommendations and opinions, above were mine. OP can inform themselves taking all that into consideration and make their choice.

The Nxtpaper looks cool, but it's not an eInk device, so it will suffer from all the problems tablets suffer from:

1. Poor battery life
2. Eye strain from backlit display

These new RLCD technologies look interesting. Still doesn't get you eInk battery life. But it solves the eye strain problem.
