"Fantastic device for reading ebooks"4.5 starson by Dream King
Pros: form-fitting, sturdy, touchscreen, responsive page-turning, easy on the eyes, microSD card expansion slot, inexpensive, superior battery life, reads epub format ebooks.
Cons: None, relatively speaking. Areas for improvement are: better book search, better book/document organization options, additional display fonts, It could have a working clock at the top of the page.
Summary: It's not often that you get an opportunity to choose between a monopolizer and a relevant upstart, and have the underdog making the superior product in all aspects. This is an e-reader for someone who wants to just read ebooks. We already have smartphones, laptops, maybe an ipad or touchpad - I don't need my ebook reader to do 50% of these other devices' functions at 50% of their quality. I want an ebook that won't hurt too much should I lose it that actually is crisp, responsive, well-built and doesn't lock me into a logistical chain wholly owned by Amazon. Not that B&N doesn't want you to buy stuff from them as well, but neither do they force you to interact with the cloud to achieve full functionality. Buy a tablet, not an ereader if you want a tablet, and vice versa.
