Is this a great deal?

http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Reade...8957167&sr=8-5

Is that an amazing deal or is it garbage?

The fact that it has both a house and car charger for 18 bucks screams amazing but the lack of reviews worries me.

Anyone buy it?

MAybe not so amazing... I don't know..

Just be careful because the product name says.

"
Black Leather Cover Case"


But later in the description it says:

The high quality faux leather case is the perfect stylish compliment to your Sony Reader PRS-600.

Well, you get a lot of stuff to be sure... but I'm not sure of the quality of some of the items.

For example, I don't trust the case or the light not to be garbage. The screen protector too, for that matter... A light is probably something you want to see a lot of reviews on.

Stuff you probably wouldn't need:
It's a standard USB cable so I have many extras. It's not a cell phone so I can't see myself needing to charge it in a car... I've never used the lanyard before.

I'd go with an m-edge 700 cover for 15.00, a well reviewed light for 10-20... A charger if the USB charging is inadequate for you.

It is a lot of stuff, but do you really need it all? The Reader comes with a USB cable so that's hardly a prize. The wall charger can be purchased very inexpensively on eBay, same for the car charger. Maybe better to buy a nice cover and a light you can see before you buy.
