Awesome E-reader 10/19/2010
This review is from: Ectaco 5" High Resolution e-Book Reader (jetBook-Lite)
Uses AAs so changing batteries on the go is much simpler than carrying adapters.
As many have mentioned, the battery container makes a nice finger grip.
SD cards give multiple options instead of just an internal memory option like an ipod.
Extremely easy on the eyes. Reading an ebook on a computer for more than an hour gives me a headache but I've used this thing for 3 hour periods and have to stop for other reasons before resting my eyes. (something to consider when decided whether you want color or non-color screen for an e-reader)
Extremely easy interface.
Reads any ebook/document file type I throw at it (with the exception of some protected pdfs).
Saves last spot (have not tried between battery replacement but the bookmark feature should help with that).
Crashes often and the only way I can seem to fix it is to plug it into a computer, which is a pain if im reading away from home and get locked out.
Usb port would have been awesome but not a huge deal considering it has SD.
Gets 22 someodd hours on 4 AAs which is good, but compared to something like the nook which gets more than 3 days per charge (or so I hear from people who have them) makes it a reason to look at other options for long term readers.
I purchased this before the price drops of both this specific model as well as the nook and I believe even the kindle before the ipad came out.
As mentioned the only thing I really have to complain about is the crashing. Its really annoying when you go to flip to the next page and have to run to the nearest computer with a usb cord to use it again.
