Wonderful way to read
When I first saw the new Simple touch Nook being offered on the B&N website I knew I had to have it. I have the 1st generation Nook and I love it, but I was always envious of my friends NookColor's touchscreen. Now, I didn't want all the bells and whistles that the NookColor or the 1st Gen Nook has, I just wanted a simple eReader and I got that and more.
Nicely priced ePub-based e-book reader
Barnes & Noble's Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight is a darn fine e-book reader. But for the fact that the Kobo Glo delivers the same features for £10 less, I'd recommend the Nook unequivocally. The B&N offering is certainly better - and better value - than the Kindle Touch, but that's of little concern to anyone already tied into the Amazon ecosystem.
Great E Ink display with fast page flipping
A top-notch touchscreen reader. Experts call the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch's display just a hair less impressive than the Amazon Kindle's, but it's still crisp, clear and detailed, with fast page turns and refreshes. The streamlined interface also shines, and the battery life is rated for a whopping two months.
One of the best eReaders on the market
With its crisp 6-inch eInk-Screen a tad whiter and sharper than last year's model, extended battery life of up to 8 weeks and faster page-turns, the new PRS-T2 comes close to being the perfect eReader. The fact that it uses the open EPUB standard for ebooks means that you can get your books from almost any store world-wide. Since I personally do not need the Facebook or Evernote apps, I can't say much about them, but I want to stress that this device simply looks and feels gorgeous.
Excellent Hardware, limited software
I am quite happy with my choice of the Sony PRS-T1 e-book reader. The Sony software seems to me inferior in almost every respect to the freeware Calibre software alternative. The two together, the e-book reader and the Calibre software, provide an easy, simple and relaxing way to download, manage and read e-books.
USB mountable harddrive to drag and drop files
The Sony Reader WiFi Touch Edition (Model PRS-T1BC) has a different look and feel than past Sony Readers. In the past, the Sony devices have had all metal chassis. This made the device a little heavier but solid in feel. Because of the price point and the metal chassis, it was easy to label the Sony devices as a luxury form of a reader. This new model is $149, a much lower price that it's 6" Sony Touch predecessor.
This is no longer the case.
Good device, but too pricey
I purchased my jetBook color with Color E ink screen several months ago on Ectaco website and really like how it works.
It has many nice features, has support for most popular formats and comes preloaded with many linguistic apps.
It has dictionaries for many languages and microSD card support.
I recommend this product for people who love long time reading and focus on education.
Easy to use
I purchased this eReader on a whim. I knew nothing about it, but when I found it at a perfect price I could not say no to I scooped it up. At first I was worried I may have been taken to the cleaners after paying $40 for mine. Admittedly, this company does not promote the product that well. I thought I heard of all the eReaders and saw almost all of them in my research for the perfect one. However, I went home and did a search on the eReader and found out I got it for a steal.
Excellent Little Device
I purchased two units directly from Barnes and Noble, one for me, and one for my sister for Christmas. It's a great device and I like it a lot. I like to read technical and scientific English language PDFs and it works well for the documents I've read so far. The web browser is very usable, and the color display is absolutely gorgeous. In book reading mode, the gestures work well and reading over extended periods of time is quite comfortable.
Built-in Wi-Fi, web browser
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color lands halfway between an e-book reader and a tablet computer -- and experts say it's a good compromise. Its main claim to fame is its 7-inch, backlit color touch screen, which testers say displays text a little more crisply and readably than the 9.7-inch Apple iPad 2 (*Est. $400 and up) , though the latest Apple tablet computer -- the new iPad (*Est. $500 and up) -- is equipped with a high-resolution Retina display that is flooring reviewers with its ability to...
Excellent display and build quality
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color may not be the first e-reader with a full color touchscreen, but it's definitely the best color e-reader option available on the market today. Its interface is quite polished for a first run, and that combined with B&N's massive library of books and the excellent color touchscreen display, makes the Nook Color a serious desirable e-reading device.
Reading text is totally comfortable
Caught between two worlds, the Nook Color is an undeniably interesting, if somewhat conflicted device. It's not quite a tablet, but it's more than a simple ebook reader. It can do things that an e-ink reader simply can't even if it doesn't always excel at them but it's nearly as cheap at $250.
Perfect for school
I bought this for my students to use in school. I love the fact that it is NOT WiFi or 3G connected, so they can not use class time on internet game sites. It comes loaded with all the classics I use in my class, and I can add works to it via USB from my computer. Every student should have one of these for school or college.
Compatible with many eBook formats
Libre is a basic e-Reader, but it does the job of being a basic e-Reader well. It lacks extras like Wi-Fi, 3G, a QWERTY keyboard, an e-ink display, apps and games. But, when it comes down to it, the extras aren't necessarily why you buy an e-Reader. You buy it for its ease of use, a nice screen, a good form factor, and a variety of supported file formats, and good battery life. At the end of the day, that's what makes Libre a capable e-Reader contender.
Easy to use
As a starter e-reader, the Libre isn't a bad deal. It's not the slickest device around, but it's relatively cheap, easy to use, and will have you up and reading within minutes of taking it out of the box. For many consumers, that might be all they need to take the dive into digital reading.
Great little reader with some unexpected surprises
If you want a device that is portable and only for reading this is perfect. If you like news and magazine then with calibre it is simple the best thing on the market. However, if you want more options, like music or downloading via 3G than Kindle is the way to go (but you'll never ever get a free newspaper or magazine!).
Packed with features
Like the Ectaco Jetbook and the Jetbook Lite , the Ectaco Jetbook Mini is designed to be a book-lover's pocketable reading companion. If there's any truth to the clich that great things come in small packages, the Ectaco Jetbook Mini might be it. The device may just be the size of your palm, but it is packed with features that make reading more pleasurable. Fans of Ectaco eReaders will also love the distinctive look and $99 price, the lightest on the market.
