The Amazon Kindle DX Graphite edition continues the trend of being Amazons largest e-reader to date. Featuring a 9.7 inch screen and 50% better contrast and resolution from previous models, it is certainly worth the $379 pricetag. Its screen displays a 1200 x 824 pixel resolution at 150 ppi, features 16-level gray scale, and a new 10:1 contrast ratio.
The Page turns on this device are lightning fast and only increase with some of the latest firmware updates. There is no lag turning the pages, and even accessing some of the menu functions is quick and easy.
This e-reader towers over the competition. Most electronic readers are only 6 inches or so, having a 9.7 inch e-reader is like reading a magazine. It is also as slim as one. It currently reads e-ink with greyscale which means you get a complete e-reading experience, with no eye strain. Maintaining the tradition of e-ink, means there is no glare in the direct sunlight.
