Summary: This is a great reader if you can still find one. It's compatible with most formats - if you have Calibre software (a free download) it's very easy to manage. The hardware is probably the best on the marketplace even today, Kindle white is admittedly whiter and has the inbuilt light but then you are a slave to Amazon's bookstore. If you can buy one of these for around $100 it's a steal. The one I got on Ebay was used but in mint condition.
A must have reader, capable of carrying a library.

Summary: Although the price is still a bit high, the reader is a must have device for those who love reading, since you can carry a whole library in it, and it is easy to handle. The screen is like a book page, no glares at all. And the most important for me: I can read my own PDF and word documents.
