Thanks to a post here and your advice I got myself a PB IQ 701 which I love - so thanks a lot for that! However, I also got a second ereader, one in which I placed great hopes, but ended up finding a mix of good and bad: the JetBook mini. And since, to make things worse, the 'support' at Ectaco is nothing short of Kafkaesque, I would appeal for your expertise once more.
I wanted a small
ereader which I could read in the sunlight and in brightly lit rooms. I did not need a large or color screen, but I did hope for a crisp, high contrast screen which would 'feel' as book-like as possible (The JB mini's screen is very nice, but it is also way too dark, not white like a page, but a weird kind of gold in color.). I want neither wifi nor any other capabilities other than book reading. The one thing which I loved with the JB mini is that it runs on AAA batteries. I would like to get a unit which would have either a long-lived battery inside or which would run on regular batteries I could get in a store.
After my disappointment with the JB mini I suppose that I need to get a unit with either e-paper or e-ink (I don't really understand the difference). But what I don't want is ghosting or a noticeable amount of flicker on page turns.
Furthermore, I don't want any DRM capabilities, and I don't need many built-in formats: the ones I use most are, in order, epub, fb2 and txt.
Lastly, and this does matter a lot to me, I want to by a decent to good quality product from a company which does stand behind its units and which cares about its customers.
Is there such an ebook reader out there? Should I go for e-ink or e-paper? Which is the highest, most book-like, quality of screen?
Thanks in advance,
