Xahne, Portsmouth Avid reader

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This Cybook is nice and light - lighter than a paperback book. With the SD card, you can carry many thousands of books right in your normal handbag. No more running out of things to read on the train.

Unlike the Kindle, you are not tied to Amazon to purchase your books: the Epub format is widely avalible. I also like way that this reader handles pdfs. There is an option to trim the margins which is very useful: no small text hiding in the middle of the screen surrounded by whitespace.

The reading experience is made better by the large selection of font sizes as well. With 12 to choose from, there is sure to be one that suits the lighting and the state of your eyesight.

The touch screen is awesome, and much easier to use as a page-turner than an Ipod. It is also very easy to use in conjunction with the five-touch button: quickly open a menu with the button, and then touch the item that you want.

The five-touch button is located in the centre of the Cybook, so can be used easily with either hand.

You can organise your books on the pc into folders, and use the folder view on the Cybook to easily see what you have loaded. Again, this is so much easier than doing the same thing on a Kindle.

I bought the Reader to read books, so have not tried either the music function, nor loaded any pictures to it.
Bad points:
I can't really think of any 'bad points'.

There are extras that I would like to be able to purchase, like a case-with-a-light, as you can buy for the Kindle, but that is all.
