I have owned a Kindle Voyage for nearly 3 years now, and it's the best.
I owned an old original Kindle, the model with the Keyboard back in the day. It was heavy and dim, and not high contrast and was great. It lasted me years. When I went to the states I decided to splash out and get a new one. Maybe it because of the tech jump from such an old version to such a newer one but I have had a fantastic experience with the Voyage.
The buttons to change page is very convinient. I tend to hold along the bottom corner of the screen which means I don't accidentally change pages, that said, it's so light I can comfortably hold it and then tense my grip a bit to turn the page. SO GOOD. I usually have it set at a really low low light and read from light that's available but reading on a dimly lit bus, the adaptive brightness is fantastic. The x-ray and dictionary functions have been fantastic (though I know by this stage a bit older of a feature).
It was a worthwhile purchase. I have no regrets. I keep it in my bag and have snuck in a lot more reading than I would've if I was forced to carry some of these books.
Helpful information: Calibre, is a great ebook library management tool that works great with kindle. ALSO there are some great chrome plug ins and other services that will send a webpage to your kindle or ebooks from other services. I've used calibre to format an unpublished work into kindle format and read it from there.
