4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product 6 Aug 2011
I bought an Elonex 500eb, primarily for our holiday.

We only tend to read books on holiday, so we thought that this was perfect for that. We flew to Egypt and the flight was around 5 hours.
The battery lasted the whole flight so I was very happy.

It also doubles up as a music and video player.

With all the costs involved with luggage on flights these days, I found that this is great value for money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Return to sender 26 Jan 2011
I purchased the Elonex 500EB for my near teenage son so that he could have his own ereader instead of needing to use mine all the time, but this one has been a bitter disappointment. One of the main draws for my son to this ereader was the video playback function which is reasonably ok if let down by the sound quality and voice sync at times. AVI files which play perfectly on the pc without sync issues are poor on the 500EB.

The main issue with this ereader though is with the battery. Using USB 2 on the pc takes approx 5 hours to charge the ereader which then runs out of power in half that time. Video playback drains the battery flat just watching one normal length feature and even reading ebooks has the 500EB flagging in 3 to 4 hours.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy! 15 Jun 2011
I purchased the Elonex 500EB ereader after reading a large number of reviews, mostly satisfactory. I then loaded a dozen books onto the unit including the complete works of Shakespeare. I was horried to find that there was no table of contents facility on the unit. To get to a page near the end of 'the works' I might have to click over 3000 pages! It's the same for all large books. You cannot easily navigate around the book to a specific act, scene or chapter as you can with other ereaders. I phoned Elonex support - 3 times and each time I was told that they would email me back with a reply to my query. They never did. I asked if there was supposed to be a TOC facility. Support did not know!? They eventually said that they didn't think so but their technicians might work on a firmware patch, and suggested that I return the unit to the retailer. I, too, had occasional problems with poor formatting. A shoddy product and shoddy support from Elonex.
