5 out of 5 eggs I love this little reader! 09/25/2010

This review is from: Aluratek "Libre" E-Book Reader Pro with 5" ePaper Display, Black

Pros:

This is my first e-book reader and honestly, will probably be my last, unless this one wears out. I mean, it's a READER for goodness' sake. If you want perfect picture and chart rendering then you need a laptop or at least a netbook, not an e-book reader. It puts the words clearly on the screen from an excellent array of formats, with adjustable font sizes and will even display the illustrations if there are any. If you read the instructions fully, (unlike me) the firmware upgrade is a breeze. The controls are easy to master and switching between books is almost as easy as laying one down and picking up another. Loading and unloading books is as easy as moving files on your computer. This couldn't be much easier to use or more natural to read from. Also, the ear buds and carrying case are very nice accessories.

Cons:

None, but it is important to note that the owner's manual is only located on the reader itself, not as a physical document. Unless this was just an oversight with my unit, it would probably be useful to have a printed manual included.

Other Thoughts:

Several people have mentioned battery life and not being able to power off the unit. If you go into the settings, from the main menu, you can set the reader to automatically power off after a period of time.
