Ectaco 5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs a lovely little beast 12/27/2010

This review is from: Ectaco 5" jetBook eBook Reader with Built-in Translators - Graphite (JB5BK -En)

Pros: this thing supports more formats than any of the competitors. bought it 2 years ago before nook existed and kindle was still expensive and i wouldn't trade it for either one. i love that it's really JUST an ereader, ectaco didn't try to stuff it full of extra features. i have never had any issues with it and i use it daily. also love that it's not e-ink, the page-turn flash of e-ink is awful.

Cons: none that i can think of. if you research it before you buy it you won't be disappointed by the lack of e-ink or wifi.

Other Thoughts: ectaco regularly releases free firmware updates on their website, complete with detailed instructions. have found that it's better to put all my books on an SD card since the main memory is small but this isn't a big deal since SD is really cheap now. calibre is a must with the jetbook, as it will tell you what books are already on your device and keeps everything organized.
