How good is the kindle paperwhite to read programming e-books?, I was looking info but anyone gives any answer from the own experience, and the current answers are outdated (> 2 years)

It is a kindle paperwhite recommended as reading tool for developers?

I would like to hear people's actual experiences.

I have never used the paperwhite version. I find my regular Kindle totally unsuitable for such material--the problem is formatting is very important to reading code and you simply don't get many characters per line on the Kindle. –  Loren Pechtel Feb 2 '13 at 20:06
Significantly better than the older Kindles. Still far from perfect. –  pdr Feb 3 '13 at 0:41
