Would someone please recommend an electronic ink tablet device for reading on?

I have tried reading on traditional light-emitting screens and I find the experience unsatisfactory compared to paper. My ideal solution would be large enough in at least one dimension (portrait or landscape) to view a full page PDF without scaling or horizontal scrolling.

My hope is that someone who already has such a device can speak from personal experience. I find it very hard to trust reviews/review articles.

This isn't as personal a recommendation as you want, but I've heard good things about the kobo from a few people.

@kelbot, were you one of those people?

After a quick search I do see devices that are pretty close to the size I'm looking for. They have one that is 8" diagonal which might be able to view full pages like I want without too much scaling. Next I'll confirm the OS/software is to my liking

I like the Kobo's more than the other commercial alternatives but they aren't quite big enough for PDFs without zooming. The only large format eink device I have any experience with is a little bit with my wife's Remarkable. It is great for PDFs, notes, drawing and koreader can be installed for a good reading experience.
