  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Superior display contrast, Page-jump functions, Supports downloads from Borders, Google Books, other sources
  • Cons: 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

  • Conclusion: I like the size and price of the Aluratek Libre Pro eBook reader (you can find it for less than $150 at various online retailers) and I think it’s a good device for someone that doesn’t need higher end features like annotations, dictionary and wireless.
  • Pros: Comes with 100 books, Easy to use, Small, Good display
  • Cons: Reader sometimes freezes on JPG and PDF files, No word lookup (dictionary) feature
