I wasn't sure I was throwing my money away at first, especially after seeing the directions. I got a magnifying glass out to read those useless directions. Realized I didn't understand any of it. But after spending some time using and learning to use the E-book reader, I am quite happy with it. First of all, you can print out the directions in big enough letters to read them from the file that comes up on the drive you plugged it in to. Although it still didn't do me much good understanding how to download things to it.
After trying several E-book companies, down loading books and finding out they wouldn't open. I found one that loads easy to the reader and works quite well. It's Boarders E-books. I found quite a few free ones. Didn't want to buy any until I found out if it would work. It loads them in EPub. After telling it to down load and then pressing the Sync button where it shows the device is recognized, off to the bottom left. Bingo, there they go. Disconnect it from the computer opened E-Matic up and went to E-Book, Digital Edition and there they all were. All six of them.
Next to try and learn how to load pictures and music. Well, to make a long story short here, you have to look at the E-reader as a jump drive. When I plugged it into one of the empty USB ports, mine showed up as J drive. Just go to where you have your music and pictures stored on your computer and you can drag them into the drive it's plugged into, or you can copy and past them from one to the other. It puts everything in the right places.
Next I tried to load a video. But it said I didn't have enough memory for that. I guess in order to do videos, you need that small memory chip. I'll buy one of those later.
But everything works as stated. I turned down the back light to help keep the battery up as I hear they don't stay charged that long.
When you consider what this E-matic does and what they give you with it. This thing is a heck of a buy. My Sister paid $35.00 just for a cover on her book reader and you get one free with this one and it does a heck of a lot more than many readers at three times the price.
The color is good and the back light is great. Once you learn how to use it, you got to know your getting your monies worth.
