Endless Ideas still has some refurbished 5" readers in stock; check http://mybebook.com/5-inch-ereaders/c15/index.html

It's the same reader; only the names have been changed... mostly

You are correct. These are all the same hardware. Most have similar firmware as well but Hanlin is missing the TTS even though it is the one directly from Jinke, the manufacturer.

I don't want to sound rude but, I wouldn't feel comfortable buying an astrakhan reader again. Its hard for to trust a company that fell off the for almost a year. What ever happened to Jennifer? Wasn't she suppose to be the go to person after Robert was gone? She only stuck aroound for a short time and was unreachable, despite several posts directed towards her. I even sent her personal messages that still haven't been answered.

While it is the same manufacturer the support and company are not the same. The products are good but a bit dated these days. There are new products now available from Jinke.

I bought one on Amazon, works well. Recommended. Or if you want cheaper ones, search on ebay, google or yahoo. Good way to compare with 3 more.

I don't know if you are still looking but you can buy new 5" and 6" EZreaders (i.e., the V5 and the V3+) from here. http://www.pocketbookreader.com/ These are actually Astak branded devices. Prices currently are $100 for the 6" and $80 for the 5", including all the standard goodies (leather case, wrist strap, USB cable and wall adapter, etc.) . They charge $13.50 additional for shipping but send the readers by priority mail with signature required. My new Pocketbook Pro arrived today and is getting its first charge right now.

Does anyone know which BeBook firmware would work with the http://www.pocketbookreader.com/ version of the EZReader? It comes with Firmware version: V2.11Astak.091021

I can't find any firmware downloads on the Astak site and I'm not sure if I should install the BeBook ONE 2009 or 2010 firmware. My mother just took advantage of the lower price and I would hate to brick it too quickly.
