Ectaco 5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Do Not Buy 10/13/2011

This review is from: Ectaco 5" High Resolution e-Book Reader (jetBook-Lite)

Pros: None that I can think of.

Cons: I bought this in Spring 2010. By Spring 2011 it broke. I am not sure how. It was in a suit case and perhaps got delicately squashed. I had a plate in there too that didn't break. A few months after I bought it the Kindle went down in price and now they are even cheaper. I haven't used Kindles or the other e-readers but from what I see they will give you a better bang for the buck. The screen fonts flickered on my Ectaco. The operation was very sluggish. The font sizes are shoddily calibrated--for ex., big fonts have too much spacing between the lines. The dictionary, for example was useless. Any word that someone with a 5th grade education wouldn't know was not in it.

Other Thoughts: Terrible piece of c&*p and waste of $120. You will be disappointed even if it cost thirty bucks. I repeat: Do Not Buy.
