Hi,
I'm running into the problem of getting eyestrain while reading e-books on my iPad. I know it uses IPS technology and read that E-link is better for the eyes.

What are your onions? And what alternative to a iPad would you suggest for reading for longer periods?

For just reading e-ink is unbeatable and the new Amazon Kindle paperwhite is getting the best reviews. You can read them in broad daylight without eyestrain, they don't cause headaches, the batteries can last up to ten days, they can hold 4,000 books, and the newest model even has a built in backlight that people say is great. IPS is really better for surfing the web or watching movies, while e-ink beats even old fashion paper for reading.

Perfect! So if it's just for reading, is ANY e-link device then good?
I'm thinking about a cheap one like this

Yeah, they're all great. I own a cheap one myself and wouldn't dream of using anything else.
