Had a few difficulties but the CSR from ALURATEK helped me download the updated software and unit is working fine. The ALURATEK features and service will keep me buying this reader if I need to replace or upgrade to a new unit.

    Read .pdf tutorial files, watch instructional videos on lighting techniques and use of various photographic products. Visual appearance of the videos on the screen is very good. Reading .pdf files is hit and miss because the product changes orientation of the screen on its own even after it has been set up another way. Instruction booklet is less than acceptable.

          I bought 5 of libre 1 for myself and my children,Mine has never worked. The other 4 worked for a very short time. I was very disappointed because I love to read and I thought this would be so great. Mine will not charge up at all.

          Does not have touch screen, but the controls are simple and the functions easy to use. Downloaded Epubs and txt formats - all free! Prefer it to my more expensive Ereader for daily reading due to backlit screen and simplicity.

                  Pros: Can play mp3s .MKV Files 100 free E-Books Back light display is great. Reads several different formats .epub, .txt, .pdf for example)Cons: 1 of 2 were defective. VERY picky SD card slot (some brands work great, some don't). Software is glitchy until a firmware update is applied. Interal speakers are very soft.For $60.00, the reader / value are good. No WiFi, No online book store. Just a bare bones E-Reader.

                    Comments about Aluratek AEBK07FS Libre I Color eBook Reader with 2GB Built-in Memory:

                    I added a 32gb card as the 2gb onboard is for all intents, worthless. I have well over 2gb of books on it and I have barely scratched the surface of my lib. You can format it to ntfs but it seemed to use more power so I switched back to fat32. That's fine as it can then handle video files just under 4gb. The ONLY video format I could not play was mkv. I had a weird problem with a pic that was originally 960x720 pixels. When I opened it, it showed as pixellated as if it were corrupt. Resizing it to 1024xX fixed the issue. Headphones are a must if you want to listen to music (cover art must be embedded) or watch any video of consequence & device needs the leather cover aluratek makes but I'm having a little trouble ordering it. All in all very happy. Just be patient with it and always turn off when adding or subtracting files to the card so it can update the contents correctly.The nook color [$]supports mini sd cards but fat32only and files no more than 2gb size which is quite strange. Plus I refuse to touch android, no matter what it's put on. Gets about an 8hr45m charge when full and came fully charged. Just grab the newest firmware and follow the directions.As far as using it with calibre, calibre is only good for organizing the books on your pc. Just create the folders of your choice and dump files only to card. So far it likes epub, pdf, pdb, and txt (no html). It says it will play mobi's but every one I've tried failed so I avoid those.

                        I wouldn't rate this as well if I'd paid more for it. I bought the color model to view graphic books, but at full magnification, the reader is very slow maneuvering the picture and won't show the image edges.
                        Still I feel I've got my money's worth. I read on the subway, and I this is a good little workhorse for the job.

                          Purchased Nov 29, 2011
                          I decided I would read the classics already loaded on the reader. Currently reading about Benjamin Franklin. I'm mostly a commuter reader that gives me about 30 - 40 minutes each way. Weekends I still like to read a hard coverbook. The ebook is easy to use sitting or standing on transit. I like the the screen better than the other ebooks I tested. No eye fatigue.
                          Fits comfortably in my small carry bag.
                          Have used to display photos, very happy with colour and side of display.
                          Have not listened to music as yet.

                          Cons the cover is just a sleeve I would rather have a flap to contain the ebook.

                            As always, you get what you pay for. This device was reasonably priced. It does not have wifi, so I had to live with the software that was installed on it (I'm not sure if it is possible to sideload apps onto it). The ereader was OK; no bookshelf or any real way of organizing my books. I basically had to scroll through all my books to find one I wanted to read The videos displayed surprisingly well for such an inexpensive device. The video player lacked any kind of controls for fast forward or bookmarking. For the price it was acceptable, but I sent it back. I would like more controls when I am watching a video and more options for the ereader.

                                This reader is a good upgrade to the Kobo -color screen and seems to turn pages more smoothly. Easy to load content & the battery seems to last longer.

                                  I use it daily mostly to view watch converted videos as it's thin, light, easy to carry. The ebook features are adequate and compatible with major formats. i never purchase books and why when there's so many for free on the web. battery life is anywhere from 4-8hrs depending on video format but for reading it's pretty long and adequate.

                                      The screen is very good, but the unit shuts down all of the time. You have to push on the 'start' button to continue reading. Often before you can finish a page.

                                      Read .pdf tutorial files, watch instructional videos on lighting techniques and use of various photographic products. Visual appearance of the videos on the screen is very good. Reading .pdf files is hit and miss because the product changes orientation of the screen on its own even after it has been set up another way. Instruction booklet is less than acceptable.
