One other reason for a recessed screen even if it's a capacitive touch is that the layers will be closer together and thus, more clear and sharp. Take a look at the PW3 vs. the PW4. The PW4 has a flush screen and the layers are not as close to the screen as they are on the PW3. If you compare the PW3 and the PW4, you will see the PW3 is cleaner and sharper.
And the Voyage has a flush screen and is sharper than either, so flush versus recessed doesn't necessarily affect sharpness.

All also had screen with resolutions of less than 300 PPI.
I originally had a few Sony 350s, and then switched to Kobo Glo and then Kobo Glo HD when that came out. All of them are IR touch, and the Glo HD is 300 ppi. By a fluke I also have 3 of them, so I doubt I'll have to worry about picking out another reader anytime soon, I really love everything about the Glo HD.
