This reader continues to suprise me. The screen is typically excelant with the standard immense battery life (battery is user replaceable and it edvens comes with a screw driver to get in there yourself)
The format selection is immense and the narration feature, while at times sounds like a female Stephen Hawking and certainly not audiobook quality, is clear and easy to understand.
The SD slot for extra storage is good should you wish to load it with mp3's which it will also play. The device appears as a linux usb store when connecting to your PC, working equally well with Windows and Linux. The only time you need to use the Adobe software is when your files have DRM attached. PDF support is excelent and even images show up nicely. Or even for storage to transfer files between PC's
The only minor complaint I have is the device can feel a touch flimsy and I'd have liked it to come with a sturdy case but for the price I can't and wont complain.
