The first one came with no output from the built in speaker. Rang them up and they gave me a post paid return label to print out and send it back. A new one was back with me the following week. This time there was sound coming from inboard speaker but so low in volume (even at maximum setting of 30) that to be honest it just wasn't worth having the speaker at all. Sound is great through the supplied ear pods. My main use (although I have tried all its options) is for reading in bed. The reading part is great with the backlight but I have to set my book up with the bedroom light on because in the dark the controls are fiddly and difficult to press in the right place. Like the 4 stars say "I like it" and think it is good value for money, The somewhat negative comments are perhaps because I am a grumpy old man!

I purchased this product for my daughter for her birthday. She has told me that the ereader does just exactly what we wanted it to do. In fact, I will be purchasing one for me for my birthday.

this is a great light-weight colour reader - great value for the money. the only downside is that the primary library display is just a list of book titles and authors in black and white - i was expecting and colour library shelf full of book cover photos so needless to say i'm somewhat disappointed. other than that it is a super reader for the price

Great product,

Been using it for 2 months now and loving it.

I Put a 16gb sd card into the expansion slot and put 30 episodes of lost in avi format onto it, I have got to say

that the video and sound quality is superb. Also loving how quick it loads my books and PDFs, I have got the first generation Kindle which

i bought in the US a couple of years ago and it is seriously slow compared to this.

To sum up it's got a great 7" screen and loads films and books very quickly, it can also play a lot of different formats.

Battery life could be better but for this price and the fact its Color I can't really complain.

Highly recommended

I love reading books and magazines but never thought about having an e-reader. However when the Eelo colour e-reader came up on offer I thought I would try it. So glad I did. It can be a bit messy starting up and having to download the Adobe Digital Editions but after that it is so easy to download books. I really like this reader because it is in colour and you can read it in portrait or landscape. You can change the text colour, size or background and you can download pictures or music too.. There is even an expansion slot for a micro SD card. I am very pleased with my purchase. The only downside is that you can't use Amazon to get ebooks from but there are quite a few other sites.

My wife asked if I would get her a E reader for Xmas I saw the Eelo E reader on the internet so I had a look at the the specifications of it & thought it might be OK for her. We are both over 75 years old so I thought it would be easy to use & download books from Kobo so I bought one for her. I had a nice surprise when I found that it was on offer at half price.
When I received it it was easy to set up on the PC & very easy to use,my wife loved it as she reads a lot of books finds the Eelo easier to hold & so easy turn the pages. I decided to buy one for myself I spoke to the firm selling the Ereader & the gave me mine at the sale price, not only that but they sent 2 pouches one each for of us.
I really cannot fault them in any way, I would recommend them to anyone & all my friends

Bought this for my holidays I thought it would save me carrying several books, ipod etc. The radio only picks up foriegn stations, can't get any books on it, have finally managed to get dvd's on it(too late for my holidays), what is on is all mixed up. I ended up buying a Kindle, so easy to get books on it and used that on my holidays. So I've wasted £90.00 on ZZBook reader white.

Really disapointed.

THIS DOES NOT WORK! I bought this because my mother saw it 'on offer' for half price when in fact this is the price amazon offers it for anyway. I have a kindle and that took me about 5 minutes to set up, and easily download books straight to the device. However, with the Eelo, I have been sitting researching on the internet, reading the manual for over an hour and still have NO IDEA how to do anything. First you have to download software for it, then create a username for Adobe, then attempt to transfer your books on to it, then it seems you can only download free books. Why would you want to go through all this palava!!! Tried doing that - doesn't work. The instructions on CPR Distribution website are useless and don't make sense!! I am in my twenties and work with IT every day and this is impossible. The internet doesn't provide any results as to where you are meant to easily get books from. This is for my mother so she is never going to be able to use it. If you like mental torture then this is the device for you. If you are normal and like things to be straight forward - DON'T BE TIGHT AND JUST GET A KINDLE INSTEAD!!! This is what I am going to do now. £55 odd quid later and wasted because I bought it over 60 days ago.

At a loss as to what to buy my husband for Christmas! He reads at least three books a week (more when on holiday) but when asked if he would like an ereader answered NO as it would not be the same as holding a book and turning pages! I took the bull by the horns and purchased the Eelo Colour Ereader. Well! this ereader is with him at all times, and he loves it! He can download the books with ease (and he is not computer savvy)and absolutely loves the fact he can change the look/lighting to let him read wherever he may be - train, plane, automobile! It will save us a fortune in suitcase weight (now there are no books in it) when going on holidays, I have to say, as he does, probably the best present ever!

I had the ZZ Book reader from CPR Distribution. I am extremely pleased with the book, it does so much more than what I expected. The quality of the reader is amazing, I am particularly impressed with the back light, you can read it in any light without any problems. I have added my CDs with no problem at all, the sound quality is also excellent. I will be taking the book reader on holidays with me instead of my MP3 player and books. Everything is so easy to use, I don't know how I managed without it.
