In ubook-options set colordepth from 24Bit to 8Bit. That boosts performance a lot - especially on the old Cassiopeias. With a good Font you can also turn of Fontsmoothing (i never used it anyway). I am still using ubook on a Dell X5-Pda.
Before that i used ubook it with Casiopeia E-15/E105/E115/E125 over serveral years. In my opinion it is still one of most flexible readersoftware out there when reading rtf/Html/prc. I switched to ubook because the newer Mobipockets had problems with Greyscale devices like the Casio E-15 . On this Device Mobipocket give you a Black in Black screen.
RTF also didn't work with Mobipocket.
