Summary: The reader can be rotated, it maintains file names, its brightness can be adjusted, it's wonderful to see photos and videos in colour! Lovely way to read books! Great to have the SD card in with a few extra thousand books or so plus the music, photos and videos! This ereader should never have been discontinued - it blows away the competition - I have a Glo and don't like it half as much!

Summary: As it happens opportunity allowed me the great good fortune to buy/purchase three of these Aluratek products as Christmas presents for my people and their people. The first of these products 'The Libre Ebook Reader Pro' arrived most timely and was joyfully received as a High End Treasure of affordable excellence.
Summary: I bought my Aluratek Libre eReader Pro from Borders, which tells you how long ago I got it. As near as I can remember, it's been three or four years. The biggest selling point for this reader is that it can hold a crazy number of books. The original ads touted 50,000 books with a 32GB card. That's the bonus here, the Libre uses SD cards.
Summary: Fantastic. Batery life almost a month, I do not read every day. It needs good ligth to read, but text is clear to read. Did the firmware update and it make text bigger. I very happy with it. I still think e-ink is more clear to read, but for the price its very very good.
Summary: It was what I expected it to be. It is a great reader with no frills. Plays movies and mp3's. It can read multiple formats. PDF's are a little slow to load but work fine. I have software that can convert documents into many formats. Epub seems to be my favorite. This has on wireless or touch screen, but there are many functions from the menu. Very easy to use, I could have figured this out without the instruction guide.
I would buy this at twice the price I paid for it.

Summary: A well-designed and well-made e book reader. It is not meant to be an Internet-connected device. Once the Instructions are read and understood,It performs as expected. The Power Management page is the one of the best I've seen. Good and prompt Customer support too!
Summary: I LOVE this ereader! I had one for about a year and it was awesome. I love music and this is the only one I have seen that allows for background music while reading. Only wish I could afford a color version! Other than that...nuf said! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Summary: I was going to get a kindle or a nook, or a nook or a kindle... oh wait, there are good quality off-brand ereaders too? Enter the Libre. I have owned the Libre for about 3 months now and I am very impressed with it. It looks great, and the controls and interface are great as well. As others have stated, there is no way to manually sort or organize your books. You can sort by title, author, format, etc.
