Summary: for testing this tablette read many lot of type of book epub,pdf,.... it's realy great, don't need to convert your file. manypulation of buttom is solso and reaction of action is very slow (big book = waiting long time for open) generaly is great good for some small budget
Summary: Not worth the money, even at the low price I got it at! . 1- Battery takes 12 hours to charge (you can't use the thing while it's plugged in to charge) and it only takes 3 hours to run dead! 2- Terribly slow processor and very old style clumsy menus. 3- Screen is Way Too Small! Changing "pages" every minute or less due to small screen! 4- All the buttons on the edges keep you from being able to hold the thing, since there's no room on the sides for your hands. .
Summary: Was bought because of low prices. The description did not mention that the screen LCD (TFT), stated:: «screen offers a nonbacklit ePAPER display with the appearance and readability of paper» The screen is easy to read, but it is not «ePAPER»,, a LCD (TFT) Reader does not read the Russian language and for me it was the main disadvantage that makes the gadget useless. In Russian you can read PDF files only.
Summary: love the item for the short time the unit worked e-ink is a wonderful concept why a non-touch screen needs to be so fragile I do not know, but I have purchased two of these units and both have broken screens.my household only consists of myself and no one else. I tried handling the second unit very gently but still the screen broke I would not recommend this unit as i am now stuck with 2 of these readers.
Battery problems, flip issues, pdf reflow issues, night reading issues.

Summary: OK, I saw this as a reader plus multimedia gadget but mainly I bought it for the reader aspect. I have a Kindle, and a Literati. The Literati is a color screen, just eReader that I use for night. This seemed like it would be nicer because of the size (more square screen) and the beauty of the colors. I wanted to give my night reader Literati to my husband and use this instead. It hasn't work out.
Summary: I loved the Aluratek Elibre Pro, and gave it a very high rating. I gave it to someone when I found that this colour-screen version was available. Immediately I found that it only took a 16 gb micro SD card instead of the larger one I had in my previous reader. I figured I could just buy one, so I turned on the unit. It felt good in my hands and it's a Droid, which was also a positive because we like Droid products.
Summary: Powered up out of the box, but as soon as I plugged it in to charge, it began clicking loudly and apparently blew the charging circuit or the battery. Would not turn on unless plugged in (and was still clicking).
Summary: You, Amazon, advertised this Aluratek thing as a book reader. Well, you CAN read books with it, and also supposedly log onto the net and use it as a tablet, but all these things are VERY HARD to do with this gadget. I can't get logged onto my Yahoo email even though I input the correct usernames and passwords that I use everyday on my computer, and, when "reading books", the thing will NOT keep the place where you stop when you are through reading.
