My System Specs

Default

Nothing compares to the kobo as far as being easy on the eyes for hours of reading, but the slow page turns and limited text per page is ridiculous. That being said, The galaxy tab 10 has the nicest screen by far IMO and android is so much less restricted than IOS. If you plan to watch videos on the tablet as well, an android system is way easier to transfer stuff onto.

The Galaxy Tab and Asus Transformer have the same screen tho some people say the colors are a bit more "vibrant" on the Tab.

Also if you haven't used the new Kobo Touch check it out as there is a HUGE difference between the Kobo and Kobo Touch.

I was in Futureshop the other day and according to the specs I was looking up the Asus actually has an IPS screen which should give it way better viewing angles and I would have expected better colour too. However, despite me playing with the display settings the Asus looked washed out from a center viewpoint compared to the Samsung... and I mean significantly. And from an angle, they were really pretty similar. The Asus washed out less at extreme angles, but wasn't as colourful to start with.

I will definitely check the kobo touch. I find the original kobo immensely frustrating because I read very fast and even at the smallest print size I end up flipping the page constantly and it is fairly slow to respond, especially at the end of a chapter.

I have had the Asus and the Galaxy and the Ipad2 in my hands and the best looking screen so far is the Galaxy. Right now I think that would be the winner for me, but there is that new Sony tablet S and that looks pretty nice, but I have not had a chance to look at it yet.
