"Excellent e-reader hard to hold solution."4.5 starson by bonstar
Pros: The clear black on grey type easy on the eyes and easy to read.
The page turns are very fast.
The unit is thin and lightweight.
Supports MOBI so most downloaded books can be converted by the Calibre ebook program.
Cons: Hard to hold onto. The slim design only gives the edge along the side of the screen to grip. I solved this problem with an elastic band holding a folded wad of no-slip rubber shelf liner mesh to the bottom side. This gives something to grip.
Summary: This is my first ebook reader and I did a lot of research before purchasing to make sure I was getting the best currently available. I am very satisfied with the choice I made especially after I fixed the grip problem.
There are a few features which would be nice if added like a better filing system with support for sub-folders so that larger numbers of books can be more easly organized in the library, and a built in notepad program to make better use of the qwerty keyboard.
The Kindle supports pdf and txt files but I found it better to convert them to mobi before loading them. The Calibre ebook program does a good job at this.
