For those of us who can't use touchscreens.

Marja E., Amazon

  • Summary: I don't have any other e-reader to compare this with. It has one very important advantage: It uses buttons, where most new e-readers use touchscreens. It is accessible to those of us who are too clumsy to use touchscreens. I keep mine in a padded case, and haven't had any trouble with broken screens, although some of the other reviewers have. It has its limits. It is black-and-white, without even greyscale. It is slow.

Battery is so-so, but overall an excellent product!

  • Summary: I bought this product over the Amazon Kindle because it includes an SD card slot for expandable storage and is overall less restrictive on how you control your eBooks. Adding eBooks to your iRiver Story HD is much like adding files to a USB flash drive. I found it easiest to sort my eBooks into different folders by type. The iRiver allowed me to navigate these folders, or to simply display all eBooks in a big list.

Best eBook reader

Chris Noonan "Chris", Amazon

  • Summary: This is the third one I have owned. The first was stolen at Singapore airport, the second I drained the battery too far and it would not charge (fixed for free even though out od warranty!!) and I bought this one as the return process is quite drawn out. There are no whistles and bells with this, it does exactly what I require which is to let me read books.

Used to love iRiver

Ryan Morillo "srart", Amazon

  • Summary: Got an StoryHD a while back, and it lasted a couple of months. Then the screen went all wierd (leaving artifacts from the screensaver over the page). Looked online, it is a common issue. Contacted iRiver support, and they will fix it with a $70 service charge. If there were any kind of abuse, I could see it (but $70 is most of the price of the device anyway), but when not in use, I had it sitting in a cubby, so no animals or anything else could damage it.

Mostly good

  • Summary: I got this in Feb 2012 from Target at $50 (plus sales tax). I have never used any other ereader, so I shall only note the few things I can think of: -Battery life is nowhere near 14000 page turns---probably closer to 1400 page turns. -Occasionally buggy when I try to USB connect it to my computer---sometimes it won't connect unless I've already plugged it in and then restart my computer.

Wonderful Gadget for every reader!

  • Summary: I have several e-readers, from Sony and Amazon. But I never had a chance to have e-reader form iriver before. I am telling you that it was easy to download books, and surf what I was looking for. Letter was crystal clear, just like printed on paper. It was truely my pleasure to read books while I was traveling.

Very happy with this surprising superstar reader

peterparl, Ebay

  • Summary: The best e-reader if you don't need touch screen. Its very fast, handles PDFs magnificently, lets you buy books from google books, which seems to be cheaper then B&N. Screen resolution is amazing, for me it is retina display, I cannot see the pixels.
