Late, but I have one of these, got it for c. $100 back in 2001/2002. It seems to be dead now since it never boots when turned on, just a blank white screen.
So, I went back to using my Palm IIIx (upgraded with TRG's XTRA XTRA PRO 8MB RAM/4MB FLASH), and my Franklin Ebookman EBM-911 (have the bad cap, such that I have to restore every time that I change batteries). Also have a few other handhelds, Handspring Prism, Sony Clie n730, Casio E-110 (IIRC), and a may as well be dead Compaq iPaq(original shipment, 64MB FLASH(instead of 32MB because of FLASH shortage), battery dead as usual -- crappy Compaq).
Can't stand using the color devices for reading, and mainly use the Palm because a) it's monochrome, it can hold a fair number of book, and I used it from when I bought it (1998 IIRC) until I got the REB-1100. Use the REB-1100 all of the time until it died, and had considered, recently, buying the re-badged units from Fictionwise but didn't care for the sounds of the OS they replaced the Rocket OS with(both are half-baked of course).
So now I'm down to looking at Astak EZ Readers and the SOny PRS-700BC (because I think that I'll miss the touch screen after having one on every single device that I've used as a reader to date). (Hanlin v9 sounds too bulky, too bad the v3 update would be plus touchscreen instead of plus WiFi...)
