I finally found out exactly what I'm looking for, the problem is, I can't find it anywhere.

E-ink is best for the eyes, but it seems like there are no e-ink readers that can properly handle pdf-files. Kindles seem useless for pdfs and unfortunately Apple Ipad are hard on the eyes because of the IPS panel.

Any suggestions or updates?

Pocketbook 902 or 903 can handle pdf and has quite a big screen (9"). Nevertheless, handling of the pdf's is quite slow, especially reading the pdf rotated or magnified.
So I still prefer to carry printouts of articles with me for reading.
Would be interesting to compare it with a Kindle DX in that respect.

I use a Sony reader for technical pdfs and images in clean room. Mine is a older PRS-600 but the pdf updates are fairly quick.
I also use calibre to update the unit instead of the Sony software.
PRS-600 "poor video but shows pdf update speed"

The new Sony PRS-T2 with a 6 inch screen looks like a nice unit.

Thank you for your suggestions so far :) I still think i gotta wait a little longer for a better e-ink pdf reader to reach the market.
