One nice feature of the HP4705x is its Adobe eReader software: tagged pdfs are easily reformatted and the font and colors can be changed to anything I want. But page turns can get a bit screwy and the screen is just too small. My eyes begin to strain after using it for a half hour or so. This happens on the computer, as well. Perhaps the backlighting of the LCD is part of the problem in the case of my eyes, because if I look at printed pages with white letters on a dark background (which uses vats of ink!), there's definitely less strain.
check Fry's, Borders, Comp USA (if you still have one). Tell us where you live in your personal data and we can be more helpful. Do you have a Cybook gen1?
