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 Review

 

The Kindle and the Nook are not the only e-Readers out there. Aluratek has also released their own e-reader called the Libre. Libre is thin and light, features ...

100 books included, great size, easy to read display, compatible with many eBook formats, accessories, good battery life, expandable via SD slot

Sluggish performance, retro design, you’re not left with a lot of built in storage, screen isn’t as sharp or real looking as e-Ink displays, no Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity, no direct connection to one of the major e-book stores

Review: Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro

 

The no-frills, lightweight Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro is a refreshing surprise among e-book readers.

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...

Aluratek Libre Pro review

 

The e-reader universe is evolving at a breakneck pace, and one thing that remains yet to be determined is what defines an e-reader. In the beginning, we saw models with electronic-paper screens; now in the mix are tablets with LCDs, as well as...

Although the Aluratek Libre Pro lacks the Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity of some fancier e-readers, it keeps things basic and to the point. This little e-reader is a pleasure to use, and it can be a reasonable alternative to more costly, connected e-readers...

Aluratek Libre Pro review

 

The no-frills, lightweight Aluratek Libre Pro e-reader handles better than most, and it sports a bargain price, too.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

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...

THE Universal reader

 

We got this for my mother for Christmas this year. We looked at the Kobo, Nook, and the Kindle. For what mom does, which is read ebooks, this was the best deal. It has a very simple, but utilitarian interface for reading books. Mom loves it, and the...

Mom loves it. Reads PDF files, MOBI, lost of other files. Uses standard SD card for memory. You can just drag files straight to the thing if you plug it into a computer. Comes with lots of goodies. Free books included. It's water resistant, unlike most...

Battery life is only like 48 hours continuous time. Could be longer
