          Did you see anything that stated whether the screen protector or light layer affected the text sharpness?  Thanks.

              The Cnet reviewer is holding a Nook Glow outdoors, in the shade. You can see the screen in daylight so there's no chance that artificial lighting is enhancing the screen. It looks to me to be the same as the Nook STR.

                  Thanks for this!  I've got it on pre-order as I've gotten tired of constantly having to replace the batteries on my clip on light.   However,   I am hoping the screen protector is optional or that it can be removed.  I've tried screen protectors on my Nook before and I don't care for the way the screen looks with them.

                      That's why I'm waiting to see this one in-store.  I'm really happy with my N2E, and I'd love to have this if it's all improvements (IMO, of course), but if there are any trade-offs at all, especially in the quality of the page text (again IMO), I probably won't get it.
