Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro Review


Today I am going to check out the Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro. This is a small and compact digital reader that can be purchased online and in some retail stores. If you are after an eBook reader that is cheap and easy to use the Aluratek Libre...

Cheap ; Easy to use

No wireless connectivity ; No direct book downloads

The Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro is a nice eReader for users on a budget, but those with more to spend may miss the ease of direct book downloads. This will make a nice first eReader for people on a budget that have a computer for downloading new...

Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro


If you don't mind charging it every day, this gray-scale, LCD-based e-reader is a good low-cost option that can read e-books from more than one bookstore.

Superior display contrast; page-jump functions; supports downloads from Borders, Google Books, other sources

No Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity; relatively slow to load a new book the first time; no chapter-jump function; much shorter battery life than E Ink-based readers

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Review: Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro

Beneath the screen, to the right, is a five-way navigation pad, neatly surrounded by four handy buttons for switching orientation, options (including jumping to a specific page in the book, by using the numbers alongside the screen), three choices for...

Review: Libre e-reader by Aluratek


Like Sal noted in a previous post, manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon with their version of an e-reader. Honestly, you can't blame them, companies are simply trying to ride on the coat tails of Kindle's success. Unfortunately, when that happens...

Aluratek Libre Pro


Aluratek Libre Pro Reader sports a 5-inch screen with 640 x 480 VGA and 16 shades of gray. Like EPDs, the screen is not backlit, allowing you to read even in direct sunlight. Also, it does not suffer from flash between turns found on eInk devices....

The Aluratek Libre Pro sports a black plastic casing that is smudge- and fingerprint-resistant. The reader also feels solid to hold. Also, the device comes with a lot of freebies including a 2GB card and 100 free preloaded books. Sure, you get can...

Because of its small screen size, the Aluratek Libre Pro Reader is not ideal for viewing PDFs. Also, it is unable to display some PDF files. The device suffers from freezes, too, particularly when loading or displaying JPG image or when using the Find...

This Aluratek Libre Pro eReader is surprisingly solid and capable. If you are looking for an eReader that you can use in both low light conditions and under direct sunlight, the Aluratek Libre Pro is affordably priced from $99 – $189. The device is...

Works with TXT and PDF. Issues in other formats.


Overall I find that this eBook reader is fairly good for PDF documents; it tries to reflow the document and has so far done a good job in my experiences. But because I read daily, it was important for me to have a good quality device that was also...

Reads PDF's fairly well ; Very low price point

Screen has moderate (ie. noticeable) glare under reading lamp ; Needs to be charged every 2-3 days after moderate use (so not very ideal for long voyages to other countries) ; EPUB books don't support bookmarking!! (They always get erased when you go...
