External reviews of Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3
  • Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

    Plus

    • Amazon has improved on last year's excellent Paperwhite e-reader with the sharper, higher resolution screen found in the step-up Kindle Voyage. A smattering of new features enhance Amazon's already best-in-class content ecosystem. The built-in light isn't quite as good as the Voyage's, but it works well.

    Minus

    • The HD screen is an upgrade but doesn't make a huge difference; an AC adapter isn't included (just a Micro-USB cable for charging). The ad-free version costs $20 more.

    Conclusion
    The Kindle Paperwhite gets an HD screen, and while it isn't as big an upgrade as you'd think, it's a welcome addition, incrementally enhancing the Kindle reading experience.

  • Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (3rd generation) review: The best e-reader for the buck

    Plus

    • High-resolution display
    • Evenly distributed backlight
    • Comfortable to hold for long reading sessions

    Minus

    • Content protected with DRM technology
    • Does not handle PDFs or other content-rich file formats well
    • "With special offers" models display ads on their lock screens

    ConclusionYou’ll be hard pressed to find a more competent, feature-packed e-reader for the money. But we recommend paying a little extra to avoid Amazon's "special offers" option that puts ads on the Paperwhite's lock screen.
