I like the new covers! Simple, but elegant.

Really? I think they look terrible.

Conveys nothing of the purpose of the books. The Tor ebook covers should be printed.

Eh. What Jay said.

I like the new ebook covers much, much more. Kekai Kotaki's Great Hunt is particularly good. These look cheap.

Orbit is no doubt aware of how the love/hate dynamic of DKS's artwork. UK covers in general are usually understated, so it's not a surprise to see that they stayed fairly close to the original design. While the eBook covers are each individually fabulous, they probably wouldn't clearly represent a series on a shelf at the bookstore.

I like 'em. I wouldn't give up my DKS hardcovers, but I like 'em.

Enh. The series is good in the style of old fantasy but it's been done. There's so much better out there : A Song of Ice and Fire, Malazan, Dagger and the Coin, Stormlight, Kingkiller Chronicle.... The Wheel of Time is overshadowed. They're good entertaining reads but I dunno if they'll hold up.
