Simply the best e-reader available

The crisp hi-rez screen, great software and excellent backlight are the standout features. Being waterproof is just icing on the cake. Performance is excellent and the larger 8" form factor allows for larger pages. The screen background is properly white unlike earlier e-readers and the page refresh is more that quick enough. I recommend getting a case that supports the magnetic auto-sleep to go with this.

Best e reader for me possibly for you

Great e reader i like to read from multiple sources it can range from pdf to double to CBR or cbz. And this plays all so far. My only two quibble with this e reader is that a there is no expandable memory folder read search. I've downloaded lots of content but sometimes I'd like to search from certain folders I've made up which is not possible to do. This does not stop it from being a great e reader. I love it the screen size is a plus but does make it less portable.

How quickly can you move between pages with this device?

2 Answers

Same speed as you can turn a page on a book. There are no buttons it's all finger control, which you decide on setup.

Hello,

I have spoken to the suppliers regarding this item, and unfortunately they have not been able to advise how quickly the pages can be turned.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A

what sizes of text are available

2 Answers

Very wide range of font size, from small to very very large, and good choice of fonts, for epub books. You can also change the weight of the font, and the line spacing and margins. The text display is extremely customisable.

Hi,

The size of the text will depend on the file type. If the file type of PDF you'll only have three size options. However, if it's a EPUB, JPUB, EPUB3 EPUB2 fole, you can resize the font to a very high range of options.

I hope this helps.
