I don't hate this ereader, in fact overall I do like it. Unlike my favorite ereader, TheBook put out by Augen last year, the internet browser can run pretty fast, and the touch screen operates with no difficulty. I find the type of eInk screen to be easy on the eyes, and the text rendering is great. Many of the other extras, the calendar, dictionary, sudoku puzzle, work without a problem.
My only issue is with the processor itself. Once you put in more than say, 500 files worth of books, music, etc., it slows down and the batteries drain. I know the specs say it has 2gb and it can take up to 32 gb on a microsd card, but it just slows down. Does not matter if I have it on the card, or on the onboard memory.
And believe me, I like the linux based budget readers, especially since I live with small kids and tend to break things. But I can even make the literati hold more than 500 files.
I am keeping it, but I thought I should post this review as a warning. It's not a gripe against the People at Pandigital, and I would suggest this reader if the nook is too pricey for you. Just bear in mind, after 500 files, it slows.
- Clear print
- Turns pages fairly fast
- Dictionary and marker
- Not too slow in surfing the Internet
- Touch screen is not equally sensitive at all spots - sometimes it reacts very fast, and sometimes very slow or not at all
- Files management is bad - deleting, renaming, moving files
- It supports well only epub - whenever you try to read pdf files, for example, it becomes unbearable.
- It freezes quite often - and you need to reset it
- The "save" function gets lost - both highlights I made in texts and the date and time disappear from time to time.
- It doesn't charge well when connected to the PC
It's a good and cheap device for reading purchased ebooks
out a lot of cash. Wow was I amazed with this. I had read the reviews for the more expensive readers only to
find the Pandigital has all the bells and whistles of the others for a great price. The shipping was quick and I ordered
the case for this reader and they came in the same package. For being a novice with this i was soon reading and
downloading content. I am only sorry that I didn't order a couple more for family members. Great reader will highly
recommend to all fmily and friends.
The wireless is functional, but un-necessary, and the browser is pretty much useless because the processor can't handle much, but you aren't buying this as a tablet (PanDigital makes one, by the way). Managing books is pretty easy, either from the device itself or from a computer. I recommend using Calibre to manage ebooks for ease. The PanDigital handles purchased, downloaded, and created ebooks very well, including PDFs and epubs.
Note: Try not to store too many books, the more you add, the longer the library wakeup time. I'd say 50 is a good max, unless you are a patient person.
What more do you expect for $30?
