I don't like to connect my reader to my PC the whole time. It's easier to pop the SD card and insert it into my (built-in) card reader... Otherwise I have to find a free USB port or unhook another device...

Could you explain this? I don't see how a 5-way navigation control would help with hyperlinks... I would see an advantage if the Pocketbook or Opus have some highlighting functionality...
