Links to screen shots of PDF documents on e-ink device

Some people (including me) get interested in ebook readers to read PDFs (usually technical ones). I noticed that there are many similar requests and postings of screen shots. However, the posts are scattered over threads and forums, it is hard for forum novices to find them. I think it would be helpful to make a thread containing the links to relevant posts with screen shots of PDF documents on e-ink machines. This way, hopefully, people can avoid making similar postings repeateldy and facilitate easier search.

I browsed relevant forums and checked only those a) with attachment and b) relevant looking title. I am pretty sure that I missed some but I think I cannot aim for perfection here. If you let me know crucial posts that I missed, I will update the list. Or, if a moderator is interested in updating this post, please feel free to do so.

I selected the following ebook reader since they are actively sold now and have quite large user-base. Kindle is excluded since it does not support PDF natively. Also, I tried to include only complex PDF documents but not comics or graphic files.

I am linking each individual post rather than thread. However, posts from the same threads are group together and noted by number.

[Hanlin V3/Bebook/EzReader/...]==============================
In this section, PDF screen shots of multiple readers based on Hanlin reader (I guess) are linked here. Thanks cbell for the suggestion.
As before, I linked each post rather than thread and posts from the same thread are grouped together and noted by number. Also, I added the exact device name right next to number just in case it is useful.
