As I know, the only one e-book reader with no problem with ALL kind of pdf  
(also very big, scanned files), and with a screen big and good enought to  
visualise scientific text (equations and so on) is the Iliad Irex (a  
subsidiary from Philips). It can also be used to take notes or highlight  
the text, since it has a small graphic pen (tablet style)
I have one, with a 8 Gb standard memory card (you can use 2 different  
format of card and normal usb pendrive), where I fitted with no problem my  
huge collection of almost 3000 books.
For sure kindle will not work with pdf, but only with proprietary files.
