Disadvantages: As above
I bought this when it was reduced on Amazon recently. I wasn't sure I'd get much use out of it (I have hundreds of books and seemed to have fallen out of the habit of reading them) but I'm so glad I bought this! In terms of value for money, I think this is a fantastic option. It feels high quality but comes without any of the 'frills' of the more expensive models. If you're looking for a basic reader, it's perfect. I was really impressed with the ease of use (I didn't need to refer to the user guide, even!) and how quickly whole books downloaded instantly to the device. My only whinge would be the way the page flashes negative when you flip between pages of a book, which does make it feel a bit cheap. Other than that, I love the way it remembers my page, tells me how far through my book I am, and how light and transportable it is. I imagine in the future they will be designed more ergonomically, as the shape of the device isn't a great fit with the shape of the human hand at the moment! You can end up with wrist ache if you're holding it in one hand, unsupported for a while. 8/10.
