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.
Summary: I LOVE the iriver. I bought it two days ago for $50 marked down at target. I did not want to buy a nook or kindle because I would have only used it for internet and games. The iriver can do internet and books. It's simple and you pay 1/2 the price as a kindle or nook.
Summary: Features sell! This is demonstrated in all of the new techno-wondrous E readers that have rushed to market recently. The down side is that these readers do lots of things but none of them very well. I've been reading digital books for a very long time on my laptop.

Summary: I bought it hopefully to read PDF files since it has a "re-flow" function. But i tried to use it to read a couple of my PDF files, it is impossible to read PDF files. Most of PDF files are related to computer science (data structure and algorithm etc.).
Summary: The screen is fabulous. Reading on this device is easy on the eyes - too easy as I often end up reading much longer than I intended. Some reviews out there complain about the color which I don't object to or the keyboard which I don't take issue with.
Summary: I bought the iRiver Story HD a couple of days ago, after reading mixed reviews about it. I was pleasantly surprised by it's design and features. Some reviews complained about the brown back (awful color, easily scratched), little plastic buttons (hard to push), and general sluggishness (slow to...
Summary: The iriver Story HD is easy to work with and has higher screen resolution than the Kindle. I have family that is affiliated with Google Books so I had the opportunity to work with a prototype. Once you recognize that it is not a touch screen, it is easy to use.
Summary: Compré el Story HD por el gusto por el detalle de la marca Iriver y me impresionó la resolución anunciada de la pantalla. Pero fue el ponerlo a funcionar y me llevé una desilusión, venia de un Papyre 6.1 y creo que no lo valoré en su justa medida hasta que lo compare con el Story.
