Relatively happy


A few minor issues with screen refresh and zoom, but overall happy. For reading books and technical documents it's sufficient, but when reading graphic intensive library books such as Map of the Discworld it's very poor. Pocket works well enough but...

Love it !


I have a lot of books from Kobo that I cannot read on my Kindle so decided to invest in a device that can be used for ePub books. It's a great ereader that does everything it should. Excellent buy at a really good price.
