You DON'T always get what you pay for
Pros: Lightweight alternative to storing and carrying printed matter. Screen is easy on the eyes for protracted reading sessions. The "Change Hands" feature is also good for changing the text orientation on the screen. Of course, this option is necessitated by the bulgy housing for the batteries.
Cons: Over the course of three days, I was unsuccessful in getting the device to read downloaded files. I have just requested a refund from Newegg.
Other Thoughts: I read and re-read the instructions several times. I tried out multiple strategies to get the product to work as advertised, but I could not. I don't know whether the defect lies with the product, or with me, but it seems to me that its use should be simple and intuitive to the average consumer who has taken the time to read the directions. Perhaps with a greater time and monetary expenditure I could have made it work, but I'm not that patient. For the money that I spent on the device and an SD card, I don't think I should HAVE to be that patient either.
