Summary: Well.....I opened it and got it going...it took me a day.....did not put a t when i wanted one...or any letter....problems with that...did not turnoff.....after all that.....three days later....I dropped it by accident and chattered the glass into a thousand pieces....
Summary: Having another brand and seeing the difference in quality and the similarity in price makes deciding between the two difficult only because of the SD slot that allows unlimited storage using multiple SD cards. This feature available on Aluratek but not the other. I use mostly 8 G SD cards and so far only have needed two, holding books, MP3 and photographs. If you read a lot of older books with no copyright this may be the one. If this is your choice, get a reading light.
Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight, SD Card slot, 8 Gigs with machine can upgrade to 32 Gigs. No reason why you can't have multiple SD cards and swap them out as needed. Easy to download books using computer and transferring to SD Card(s). Thousands of free books from a few dozen websites. Battery seems to last between charges for a long time.
Cons: New Firmware is available that I needed to download. Binary file that will not extract onto the reader so I am forced to use old software. I spent a long time and my son, a professional geek could not get the software to load properly. The screen could have a lighter background to make it easier to read. Buttons for essential functions are too small or inconvenient. Small headphones are not comfortable so plan to get a good pair if you will be using it for MP3.
Summary: I have never been able to down load a book onto my Libre Ebook, they all go onto my desk top and I can't get them to go onto my book. Can someone help me do this? I would be over joyed if you could do this for me. Thank you so much.
Summary: Got this as a Christmas gift. Really wanted an ebook reader that I could use at night in the dark, and as I'm not tech savvy this is what my daughter chose. The first time I used it I noticed that it would freeze up after an hour or so of use. Then it started to shut off between page turns. (Maybe I just read too long and it overheats?) Also doesn't come with a manual, just a quick-start booklet, and haven't had much success getting help over the phone.
Summary: 3/5 because this reader processes extremely slloooow. Have fun if you want to place a large library onto this. Another thing is if you would like to put music on this reader, forget about it. I put 10 mp3s on it and the unit froze every time I tried playing them. Then I reduced it to 1 mp3 to see if it could process that. No luck, it froze every time.
Summary: I had decided that I wanted an EReader, but didn't have a lot of money to spend, so did a lot of research. The Aluratek EReader caught my eye because of the price. Then a little more research led me to the Libre 7 Inch Color Multi-Media - EBook Reader, I reviewed a number of customer reviews and found that some people loved it, although some had defective models and had to send them back and at least one person complained bitterly about the customer service.
Summary: I bought this reader and overall it's ok as long as you get it cheap. Basically its too small a screen for anyone having the need for larger type. I'm older and the eyes don't work as good as they used to. I thought this would work, but when you enlarge the type, you end up with very little on a page and you have to change pages every few seconds. It just becomes aggravating. The screen is good for reading (not e-ink though), but good not unless it is well lit.
