    Many e-readers can read PDF's, but they may have limits as to what they can do with them. Mine (pocketbook 360) for example can reflow the text of a pdf so that it can fit on the screen easily, but some cannot. It means that sometimes you have to page down and page down or zoom in and out to read everything, which can be rather annoying, compared to a proper ebook which nicely fills up the screen - no more, no less.

    I'd suggest you to lie down in the bathtub for the most satisfactory PDF reading experience

    PDF are created so they should be device independent so long as the device has a big enough screen to view them as intended.

    So to answer your question

    Old World New World Used for
    PDF reader with appropriate sized screen PDF reader with appropriate sized screen Seeing documents presented in the exact format the publisher intended

    Reading PDF's on a 7" tablet is painful but reading them on a 6" Eink with a slower refresh is really painful.

    If you need to read PDF's use a device with a larger screen.
