I bought this e reader because it was larger than a Kindle (it has a 7" screen) and significantly cheaper. Having had a very bad experience with a tablet computer, I wanted something simple to use and which did not operate using a finicky touch screen.

This e reader is perfect. It is delightfully easy to use, has buttons for navigation and is back-lit so can be read in the dark. I have never tried to use it in bright sunshine, but have used it in total darkness, when it is slightly too bright, but still acceptable. I read a lot and for long periods and have never had a problem with the battery, but I do charge it up regularly. Once it did freeze up, but there is a simple re-set mechanism which sorted it out.

Books have to be downloaded on a computer then transferred. The operation is simple but it is not possible to see the books appear on the reader as the transfer takes place. Once transferred they appear on a library shelf or in an 'explorer' section, from which it is also very simple to delete.

Reading a book is simple, there are two sets of buttons which can be used to turn a page forward or back and there is no need to bookmark a page when you turn off because you can continue reading from the page you were on. My only criticism is that the 'enter' button could be a bit larger. The left and right buttons are much bigger and easier to use.

PDFs are not so easy to view. There is an option to re-size but I found that they only fit the page with tiny print. I did not try reading in landscape format instead of portrait, but this is an option. I stick to EPUBs which are straightforward and I have downloaded umpteen classics for free [legally]. So far I haven't bothered to extend the memory but cards are available.

Here is what I love about this device: It is sturdily built and well protected, has a fantastic colour menu - which is very simple to navigate, you don't need to purchase a separate book light for this - as it is already back-lit, and the brightness can be adjusted, the book covers are displayed in colour, on a book shelf - this looks very smart indeed, the text is amazing -it is crisp, clear and very easy to read, there is a zoom button to adjust the text size, every time you view/read a book, the device remembers the last page you were on, automatically. Also, You can read in portrait or landscape mode, the current time is always displayed on the top of the screen, you can view photo's, it has a calender, and you can add your books to a favourites list - which display their covers on a book shelf.

There are a couple of things that could be improved upon, and would make this e-Reader perfect, namely: the weight of the device (it is quite a bit heavier than others) and the short battery life (It needs charging after approx 2 hours of use.) The good thing though is that while it is charging by usb via your computer, you can continue reading. You can also purchase an accessory pack - which contains a mains powered charger, a protective case for the device, and a 2GB Micro SD card.

The great features this e-Reader has, far outweigh the couple of niggles I mentioned above. All round, it is an excellent gadget, and more than worth its price. If you are looking to purchase an inexpensive e-reader, but one that delivers - then you can't go wrong with this! I am sure you will be more than happy with it - as I am.

This ereader is a perfect choice for anyone wishing to read a book without having to carry a book, almost any book you can think of can be purchased &/or downloaded from the internet, and as this has a colour screen it is able to show a books illustrations. Taking into consideration that this ereader has an LCD screen which severely limits the battery life to a few hours, it is responsive and a joy to read, where I put off getting an ereader because of a tight budget & the Kindle/Kobo being expensive. My partner has a Kindle which I have tried to use, the buttons are awkward to push and the e-ink screen is not as easy to read as the LCD screens of computer monitors or this ereader. The only disadvantage I have found is that the available internal memory is a little over 10Mb when the advertised space is 128Mb so it really is necessary to use a micro sd card with it (I've bought a 16Gb, which is the maximum allowed size of card). A downside to the description in the products name on Amazon is the it has 'wifi' which is a mistake as it has no 'wifi' ability, I have easy access to a computer and the internet so this is not a problem for me.

All things considered, for the price, this is a very good piece of equipment, and would recommend it over the Kindle and Kobo having had experience with both.

Excellent product and extremely good value - at least as good to use as Kindle Paperwhite, although no WiFi, of course.
e-books easily downloaded from Waterstones website, many free and all good value.
Highly recommended - would give it nine stars if I could
