I agree, battery life is nowhere near the 7000 page turns advertised - at least not in real-life use. I do seem to get more than you appear to, probably ten days at two hours a day - I wonder of there is a firmware issue here. I'm still running ver 1.7 because ver 2.0 had known power management issues and I never really needed the additional functionality of ver 3.0.

Beyond that I am also pretty happy with the reader, though it does begin to look a bit clunky compared to some of the newer units - I'm thinking particularly of the new Sonys.
