I have a first generation kobo ereader e/ eink that recently broke. I've been looking for replacement and have heard nothing but good things about the nook color. I'm just wondering if it hurts your eyes? I have only ever had experience with eink.

I've had my NC for a year and a half. I read for at least an hour every day. It doesn't cause any issues with eyestrain. I keep the backlight setting low--it varies according to the ambient light, but I try to have it so that the brightness is about what oone woud have on a paper page.

I've had my NC for almost 2 years, have made no adjustments to it (light) I read for a few hours everynight in bed in the dark so problems so far.

It does bother my eyes if I try to use the NC in bright sunlight or if I try to read in the dark. No problems reading inside in a normally or even dimly lit room. I did buy a First Edition to take care of the reading in sunlight and with a clip-on light it works fine in the dark.
