Pros: I got a great price from Newegg. I wanted to buy from a good place in case of problems. The display is as good as our Sony 505. It came with all the bells and whistles I wanted.
Cons: The Mentor starts up just like a computer and then goes to the last page read. Our Sony 505 starts with the last page read. The audio plug is the minature kind so my ear buds don't fit. The page turning button (just one) is not in a good place. Plus it has The reader has frozen serveral times (I think it has something to do with the Soduko game). I'd even thought about returning it. I'm not impressed with the software programming. I think there's some problems there.
Overall Review: We have a Sony 505. I consider this the gold standard. It was put together with thought. My wife uses it. She finds the Mentor has too many buttons to push. I didn't want the new Sony touch screen. The Mentor has everything I wanted but just not put together the way I would like.
