REVIEW # 2
Pros: Update much improves this reader. URL:http://www.jetbookmini.com/update/ (See CONS for finding a recognizable SD card.) When attaching Jetbook (with working SD card inserted) to PC, hit power option that shows up, re-attach to PC, hit SD card option, NOT internal memory and it should finally recognize SD card and then it will go to update screen. Takes some playing around, but it's worth it. Page finder and battery life seem much improved after update. Clock holds correct time after update. And with SD card finally recognized, I can carry all the books I want on it instead of just 3 on internal memory. One star off for SD card problems.NOTE:I tried mini and micro, even tho it specifies regular size only, in an attempt to get it working. Also tried half gig, one gig regular size, PNY, HP, A-Data brands that did not work, tho and those sizes and brands SHOULD.
Cons: Agregiously hit or miss as far as SD cards to add space for books. Also, can't update w/o an SD card inserted. Out of 8 cards total of different sizes, brands, it recognized ONLY a Kingston brand 4 gig regular size which cannot be used (2 gig max), but the fact that it recognized that one gave me hope, so I tried Kingston..Out of 2 of the identical 2 gig Kingston regular size, it only recognized one when inserted. VERY touchy with the SD cards and Kingston seems to be the key, at least for my Jetbook! (No, I don't work for Kingston)
Other Thoughts: I'd given up on this reader some time ago when 7 different SD cards would not work. Gave it one more chance with a Kingston card and it actually recognized it, so I went on from there. Love this reader now that it's usable, but am worried that when this particular Kingston 2 gig card fails, I might not find another that the Jetbook will accept..

Pros: Giving 1 egg for the PROS: Easily re-programs buttons/screen orientation with 2 clicks so you can read comfortably with either hand. I switch back and forth constantly. LOVE that feature. Small, lightweight, font sizes are great for all vision needs.
Cons: Would not accept ANY size, any brand SD card.Tried SEVEN different cards and it does not recognize them.Went out and purchased 2 more cards, still zilch. Every card works in either my PC, my other book readers, my camera and my phones... Had to delete all books that came on device to make room to add mine. Able to fit no more than 2-3 books total on internal hardrive. Useless for travel for me as I am a voracious reader. I keep hundreds of books on my other readers. Tried resetting, tried loading from 3 different PCs. This is a dealbreaker as far as I'm concerned.
Other Thoughts: Frequently returned me to page one after ON/OFF and is a hassel to return to page I was reading. Cumbersome page finder program. Changing font size screws up page numbers and prevents finding page you were on when that happens. And it happened a lot.

great eReader, easy to use
Pros: - Small size, super clear 5" LCD.
Cons: You have to convert formats on your PC if you use anything but TXT and FB2.
Other Thoughts: Very well thought out product. I ride the subway twice a day and it's very easy to hold in my left or right hand. They have a "change hand" option for it
