I really like this model. My only hope is that it lasts longer than the usual year and a half my keyboard models usually manage before seizing inexplicably (trust me, I've got a drawer full of these dead readers). My Wife is now on her second Paperwhite, which I suppose is not that great an endorsement for their longevity, but at least her 1st one made it to around 28 months before dying and her current one is still okay 2 years on. So, if nothing else I have high hopes of my upgrade to a Paperwhite offering noticeably better value. In any event, it really has some very cool features, and it is wonderful not having to use the tiny keyboard (with my big digits) anymore. As it stands right now, I love it!
