Summary: Like Joseph, I feel cheated and will be returning this item. I also ordered the great KINDLE deal at Christmas time and just received the Viewsonic yesterday - seriously disappointing. I've trusted Amazon in the past and have been very pleased. But this will be their one and only chance to keep a loyal customer. So I'd better not get any hasstle returning this. And I'd better get the Kindle I ordered and paid for.
Summary: The ViewSonic ereader does not remember the page number of the books you're reading, so when you turn it off or browse another book you start over on page 1. It also has no wifi access. Compare the $200 for this device with $149 for the kobo reader at chapters which is smaller/lighter, has wifi and does remember the page numbers, and this becomes a not very good deal.
Excerpt: In maggio 2010, compro da Ebookreaderstore (sito in italiano ma di fatto olandese) un bel ebook reader l'Onyx book 60. E' bello, ha la foderina, legge vari formati, riproduce anche gli mp3 e ha la connessione WiFi. In effetti per un mese sono stato molto contento, al mare potevo leggere e contemporaneamente ascoltare la mia musica preferita. Un giorno all'accensione lo schermo si suddivide in due parti una attiva e l'altra completamente silente.
