Real Ink vs. E-Ink

The most important feature of any eBook Reader is its display. Like others, the Sony Reader doesn't use an LCD display like those on computers; instead, it uses 'E-Ink' which uses far less power and works in a wider range of light conditions.


While it doesn't measure up to black and white real ink (it looks more like light grey on dark grey), it's perfectly readable.
