Summary: I prefer my Kindle for most reading but wanted one that would read epubs, both for library books (back before Kindle library lending) and epub books that I picked up at this site or that. This was about $60 or so dollars when I bought it at a discount store awhile back and it fills those needs nicely.
Summary: This device is not a Kindle. I would say that the best use of this device is as a technical document reader. It is also on the cheaper end of things, and you can import your own PDFs into it, so it makes a great lightweight work PDF reader. If you are on the go at all this is a pretty simple way to keep up with documents you might need to read without a computer.
