Were I to buy another eReader, I'd probably get this one again.

You can delete some or all of them for more memory, but really all you need is a memory card.
Stephanie D. Rendino
I like the features it offers: books, music, pictures, and the variety of formats it offers.

I bought this for my students to use in school. I love the fact that it is NOT WiFi or 3G connected, so they can not use class time on internet game sites. It comes loaded with all the classics I use in my class, and I can add works to it via USB from my computer. Every student should have one of these for school or college.

I enjoy my Libre; it has plenty of storage space, and you can expand with memory cards. It's also easy to manage files; plug the memory card into your computer and rearrange at will, then plug back into the reader. It doesn't hold a charge long if you leave it turned off, so if you only use it occasionally, be prepared to read plugged in or charge it before you take it along. I recommend it; easy to use, easy to read, and easy to take along!

A good little reader for someone who doesn't want wi-fi or all the bells and whistles like some other readers. You can download txt, epub, and pdf books easily from your computer to this ereader. It is lightweight and easy to use. My husband and I both have one and we are very satisfied with the reader.

It's amazing I've only owned this for about 3 months and how far I've come with it. I found a free program called Calibre that will reformat any ebook to whatever format you want. I convert anything my friends give me or I download to rtf using this program. It's fast and efficient. Each book I put into an author folder, "last name, first name" and then into a genre folder. I've found Calibre chokes on things like the Charles Dickens complete works I downloaded from Amazon. It was just too big for the program to handle. I can't open the original format version on the Aluratek Libre e-reader. Calibre can't convert protected files either. But otherwise it's an amazing program, which also has a search feature that will search multiple book sites all over the internet for you at once. You just have to be careful not to download free books from foreign sites that are rights protected in the U. S. I've found a 16 GB sd card is plenty big because I'm not using this for music any more for the reasons I expressed elsewhere here. I think I have about 5000 books on it and still about 10 gb free space. I've messed around with other e-readers in stores and for the price, easy interface and flexibility, this is the best, in my opinion. I even bought a cheap, other brand, color, back lit unit, but found I prefer reading without the back lighting and couldn't get my movies to run on it. Until I get an iPad, this is the best. And I imagine I'll still want to read on this most of the time. I'll update if I find I feel differently about it.

Now that I've been using the Aluratek Libre Pro for a week, I thought I'd add some important information to the front end of my review.

This e reader does the job it's stated to do, its not e ink so it don't make much sense comparing it to that technology.It came with a little envelope type case, hand strap, ear bud and an adapter which can recharge my e book using my usb connection on my laptop or plugged directly into the wall socket(110v). There really were 100 books and from skimming through a few and reading Sherlock Holmes to the end, they seemed complete.
This version did not come with the 2 gig SDHC memory card so I bought my own, an 8 gig,it plays mp3 and audio books but not to loudly(probably need to get a better quality ear piece), has the book mark feature and switches of to conserve battery life if you fall asleep, while reading.
I've loaded a couple of pics and it looks cool in black and white, but my main use for it is reading novels,self-help books and biographies.Technical diagrams don't show up too hot on this,but it don't strain my eye like the back light on my computer, and it reads most format PDF,TXT,Epub etc. Most books I have are in adobe digital format and on one review someone mentioned "calibre e book management" a free software that assist in converting some books into a more compatible format -not copy-wright protected stuff!!
Battery life for me is about two and a half days, but I don't read continuously, daily living requires my attention,so 3-4hrs a day if i get time, and mp3 music do tend to run it down faster as well. I've had this reader since
April last year,-bought it through a family member- and its still going strong, may buy something bigger for reading text books but its not an urgent need.I enjoy my e reader and if you're looking for something affordable and easy to use its a great choice!!

I bought this used, and although the box was broken and severely damaged, the item itself and accessories were perfect. Has 100 books already installed on it, came with power cord, USB cord, earbuds, and even a neoprene case! Only problem I found was under the title "Adventures of Tom Sawyer" was the Old Testament of the Bible! No explanation for that one.... Although I only glanced through a couple books, this is the only one I found like that.

Ease of use is incredible. No need to read the manual, it's self-explanatory... which is PERFECT for my 10-year-old I bought it for.

All in all, if you are looking for a low price kindle-wannabe, and don't need wifi, color, or touchscreen, etc. then this is perfect. My son will be very happy this Christmas, and it will make his backpack MUCH lighter!
