Good connection to home WIFI
Nice toy for chess, solitaire, sudoku, and reading the newspaper.
Cons: Many apps will not run - I could not get WordsWithFriends, Skype, or Candy Crush to run. All will load, but wont run.
Forty days into ownership, the display does not map properly to the screen and 1/3 of the display is missing. Unusable in this state. Limited fun while it was working....
This review is from: Ectaco 5" High Resolution e-Book Reader (jetBook-Lite)
Pros: Generic AA batteries - universally available. Screen is easy on the eyes in lamplight or bright sunlight. Unlimited library size with SD cards. Device is light and easy to hold. Multi-format support and DRM friendly (library borrowing ability) makes the jetbook all you need. Good price (altho some name brands pricing is nearing the price).
Cons: Don't use the reader to transfer books to your SD card. Pop out the SD card, plug it into your computer usb (cheap card readers run $1), drag and drop your book onto the SD card, and pop it back into your jetBook-Lite. It takes a long while for the jetBook-lite to reinitialize its new library.
Other Thoughts: The reader was quirky until the last firmware upgrade; it's much more stable now and the DRM support works great with my local lending library. I've read dozens of books on this reader and really enjoy the jetBook-Lite experience.READ FULL REVIEW
