Good Basic Device

The Ematic EB105B is a decent basic device. I wanted something with no wi-fi that could read PDF's and EPub's as well as store and watch video files. This eReader will do all that just fine, with no frills. Video playback from downloads are not hi resolution but adequate. I would like to see some better controls for the playback toggling back and forth in the video, but it works and I can't complain. The Epub's work fine for reading only. This is NOt a touch screen device so don't expect to be able to highlight and make notations like you could with a Nook Tablet or Nook Simple Reader Touch. This is just for text/picture reading. It is very manual, for example, jumping ahead in a book, you have to know or guess at what page you want to go to. Manually paging forward one page at a time is rather slow. Text is sharp and pictures are clear. Device will rotate the text as the tablet is rotated. This function is not fast [around 5 sec] but is not much of a distraction. I charged the unit overnight before using it and have had good success with the battery life. The construction is decent and I have been very happy with what this unit is. It is not an Ipad or a Kindle Fire, but it is fine for what it sets out to be.

Good starter ebook

I was looking for something inexpensive and not to high tech. And that's what this eBook is. Great for a beginners eBook. The owners manual isn't much to be desired for. Play around on the eBook and you will get more out of it then reading the manual. No problems with the battery. It doesn't bother me to change the backlight setting if that means the battery will last longer. I like that you don't have to buy books from the company's store. My son has a Kindle 6" E-Ink display and you have to buy DRM books. I don't think you should have to pay for a book you cant use on any device. The only thing that the Kindle 6" E-ink has that makes it slightly better then this ebook is Wi-Fi. Other then that the Ematic Ebook is color, has a MP3 player and can play videos. All in all I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase.

The good thing about this e-reader is the price--it works and the price is great. I am using it with my students so I did not want to spend a lot of money on something that could disappear from my room or get broken. The housing is a cheap plastic, the buttons are a bit clunky.It says it comes with earphones but it does not include them in the package--even if it did I would not have my kids share them--they can plug their own in so that is okay. It only comes with a usb charger which you also use to transfer your books. I however prefer to load them on the SD card and transfer them that way. I am using the charger from another e-reader with a mini usb and it works fine to charge it in the wall outlet. You can buy a charger from walmart if you want--they have an accessory kit. I have another ematic e-reader that I like better but I paid more for it. Vidoe and mp3's play fine. If you just want to get a starter e-reader for your kids I would get this one and set it up for them. If you are wanting wi-fi, a nicer feel in the hand, you need to look at the more expensive e-readers. For what I wanted in this case it was not as important.

This unit fills all my needs for a reader with a very inexpensive cost. It is very easy to use and to program. I can access books, articles, reports and pictures of all types from all over the internet thru my desktop and download them all into this reader. Very Handy. I'M very glad I found it. I do think, though, that a button to turn pages could be placed on the right side and on the right end to facilitate use in whichever orientation the device is being used. Thank you for the opportunity to review this Item.
