1 out of 5 eggsSAVE YOUR MONEY

Pros: It's pretty. It LOOKS like a great device. Bought on sale. (They should have paid ME to take it) Glad I didn't pay full price for this glitchy, sticky, finicky ereader wannabe.

Cons: Takes as much as 2 minutes to start! Does not use a regular usb charger. It has a PROPRIETARY USB CHARGER. I have to play with charger in plug for it to start working. Very touchy. If it breaks, you are S0L.You have to order another from them. Will not list your books in your homemade genre folders in "your library". (You have to scroll through screens to the SD card setting and when the ereader sometimes recognizes the card, then you can access your books neatly organized. (I've tried different brands and sizes of cards. Same for all.) Touchscreen is atrocious and must be hit in EXACTLY the right 3 pixel area to work. Even then, it OFTEN turns page backwards instead. Tapping and tapping at a setting to access it is endless. Worst of all, after approximately 90 minutes of reading it freezes up. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. The battery drains during non use and NO, I did not leave it on sleep setting. In the OFF position, after a couple weeks, numerous times I've found it totally dead.

Other Thoughts: If you are already stuck with one, don't put more than 20 books on SD card at a time. It'll just freeze up. (It'll freeze up anyway, but not nearly as often. Maybe just a couple times a day, instead) I keep internet function off. Can 't even imagine how sticky it'd be with that on.
I use my Ectaco Jetbook reader every day. Simplest, least problematic. Minor freezeups once in a while. Reset is your friend. Not so with Pandigital. Takes several minutes to regain functionality after a reset and resets are constant.

4 out of 5 eggsGood buy for a rice

Pros: Good value for the money.
-excellent text quality in bright light/sunlight
-very long battery life compare to LCD or AMOLED display-based readers
-clean simple design
-features (Wi-Fi, email, internet browser, music, pics)
-direct access to Barnes & Nobles bookstore (via wi-fi)
-supports up ot 32GB SDHC Flash cards
-2 GB Internal memory (~1.7 GB free) enough for about 3000-3500 books assuming 0.5MB per average size book
-comes bundled with 8 free books (including child books)

Cons: Not without its issues.
-poor format support: only pdf and epub.
-USASCII only fonts installed (no native i.e. Cyrillic) have to use epubs with embedded fonts no biggy.
-dark-grey text on light-grey screen. Hard to read in small font when lighting is poor.
-fairly heavy - 8oz compared to some of competition
-thin, hard to hold comfortably until you get used to it.
-some glare (just a little not too bad at all) if light falls in parallel to you viewing angle. Screen is not glossy kind though.
-screen response is about 1 sec, takes some patients when flipping pages.

Other Thoughts: Although not the best of it's kind it nevertheless still good e-reader especially for $70. I couldn't justify splurging $150 for a name-brand. At last I can read my fiction off the laptop and have my entire library in one small package.
I wish it had fb2 support so I don't have to convert my entire library into epub. unfortunately majority of name-brands purposefully exclude this format to prevent use of free book sites.
E-reader did freeze on me ones and I had to hardware reset it. There is a small hole on the back right upper corner you have to use a paper clip to do it. Was fine after that.
Despite Novel being less than recent product - no firmware updates available on Pandigital website.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: My wife likes white.
Newegg's shipping is outstanding.
PDFs are kind of legible at XXL font size (the largest, quick to find setting).
It might be great for kids who stare from 1 inch away.

Cons: Manual, once you find it, states don't use in direct sunlight; features state "easy to read - even in direct sunlight".
We live in Southern CA (see the sunlight thing).
Font and screen display are thin (I haven't surfed settings to see if I can bold all or do something else to improve readability).
Can't give it zero eggs.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 in the hopes of gifts for non-computer inlaws. These will probably end up being one of those many gizmos that end up cluttering boxes of good ideas and near useless implementations. I planned to buy 1 or 2 more after I tried it and before the sale was over.

I wear 1.5X reading glasses and after an hour of fiddling with it, with 2 pairs of glasses on, my eyes hurt. My wife, who doesn't wear glasses, won't give them as gifts.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Touchscreen is okay, but takes a bit getting used to as you have to use tips of your fingers and not anything more pointy. Plays music. Connects to a pc as a flash drive, which makes it easy to drop books and music onto it.
Decent interface, i.e. I was able to do everything without touching the manual. Not annoying.
Has wi-fi and a web browser.

Cons: Two eggs off: one for screen, the other for speed and other annoyances.
First, the screen is not as good as other popular e-inks. That is very obvious. However, it is definitely readable and I had no problems reading either in very low light or bright light. If I was not aware of other e-readers, I wouldn't mind the screen at all.
The speed could be faster. I don't mean flipping the page, which in my opinion is fine, but using on-screen keyboard for typing and using the web browser takes some patience.
The unit comes with sudoku, which is a bit buggy and requires a bit of touch precision to place the numbers onto the grid accurately. I ran into an insoluble game. The word 'answer' in 'check answer' is misspelled, i.e. 'anwser'.

Other Thoughts: First e-reader. Got it because it was on sale, without comparing it to other popular devices. I wasn't too crazy about this device, but by the end of the week I ended up reading a lot more on this device than I usually do in general. Overall, after playing around with K*ndl* and N**k at BB, I can't say I regret the purchase.
