Bookeem Opus Plus

by Alroy on 6/15/2010

I have several eBook readers. This one is the best for handling drm PDF ebooks. Those that advertise reflow result in a terrible reading experience. Lines have one word with the sentence continued onto the next line. Some pages are only 1/4 of the page with the novel continued on the next page. The Opus Plus has no reflow thus it looks like a real novel. You turn the reader sideways and adjust the size of print through a percentage choice like Adobe Reader does. However it only shows 1/2 of a page with an arrow symbol at the bottom of every second page. Turn the page one sentence above the arrow and the page moves up to 1/4 of the top of the screen. There is no bad formatting of the paragraph with this reader. Reading Epub is even better. This reader also has the best battery life. You can easily get 3,000 page turns with this reader. I know others say 8,000 page turns but I own the Sony touch reader and I have to charge the battery after about 1,000 page turns. The view of the page on this reader is also the best. Its a white background with a dark print. Its the best of all the readers I have (the eSlick is also as good). Other readers like the Sony touch edition and the Astak Pocket Pro have a grayish background with a lighter print. If you borrow books from a library or you buy DRM PDF books. This is the reader to get. It feels like cheap plastic. But its a sturdy plastic with a very good leather case to protect it when in your purse or knapsack.

Nice reader with a few flaws

by luvduv on 9/3/2010

I have a few Sony Readers. I got this one because it was on sale and wanted to see if it could conquer the only thing that makes Sony readers imperfect (screen glare). I have to say the reading experience is nice, the fact that you can add fonts and adjust the size is fabulous. And it is so light it's almost scary. My only gripe is the layout takes major getting use to, especially if you put books on a micro-sd card. The only way to see the card itself is to press the "back" button until you see 2 entries Cybook and SD. On a Sony reader, it lists all the books together with an sd symbol next to the books that are on the card. But not here. You have to choose Cybook or SD. I find that sorting doesn't work as expected either, but that could be because of how the files are saved. The reading experience is pleasant though. Otherwise, it's a nice reader (if you get it on sale).
