So...if asking a forum of people who read ebooks isn't the place to ask questions about reading ebooks, where is the correct place? A forum full of people discussing movies or music?

Where would you suggest going for those other opinions? Very few other virtual places I visit have any discussions about or information on ereaders much less discussions on which displays are easier to read on from people who are likely to have used those displays.

And ghod alone knows why it is that on Mobileread, any three posters seem to have at least five opinions on any topic.

haydnfan: If you think the merits of eInk are all based on confirmation bias, then why do you own an eInk reader?

Ah, but you misunderstand the original post #1 in this thread. With the right settings you can emulate somewhat how eink looks with lcd or oled screens, but never duplicate eink 100%.

Now OP has this problem that even with 20-15 vision (better than normal) eyes are tiring really quick reading on tablets. You can surely improve it a little bit with right settings, which OP admits is unable to get -- not for lack of trying. Are you really this confident that lcd/oled will work better than eink in OP's case? Remember we do have 3 different kind of people on MR: (1) those that read without problem on lcd tablet and prefer it, (2) those that could read on either, but prefer eink, and (3) those that NEED eink for various eye problems.

In my case it's also fact. I've spent enough time reading on LCD screens to know (it's not a guess) that reading on eInk devices is easier on my eyes. I knew this long before I "confirmed" it by reading about other's experiences on the Internet -- and long before I even knew MobileRead (and other forums dealing with eInk Readers) existed. Why is it so hard to accept the fact that not everyone is the same?

As for "dialogue ... challenging ... preconceived notions," I think we've had enough of those on this subject in other threads. (I don't have to "justify" my opinion.) The OP wanted personal opinion, no "challenging dialogue" necessary. Several of us who like eInk Readers have stated our opinions (as have those who prefer LCD screens). I didn't question LCD users "confirmation bias," I just accepted the fact that they don't mind (even prefer) LCD screens for reading. Why is it so hard for you to accept that there are those of us who KNOW that eInk eReaders are better for us and easier on our eyes?

As rcentros indicated, individual experiences differ and the only way to really be sure if one type of technology works better for any one person is to try it themselves.

It depends how much reading you plan to do.

With short reading sessions (5 to 10 minutes), tablets are good enough to use for reading.

For longer sessions, an ereader is easier on the eyes.

That's pretty much a load of mythological elitist crap designed to maximise the poster's belief in his own innate superiority and minimise everyone else's self worth.

No matter what opinions I have on ANYTHING, there is no forum anywhere that restricts people from posting an opposing POV, and no forum anywhere that doesn't have opposing views from a variety of sources. Not even the Fox News forums are like that.
