Incoming PB360

`Well, Just ordered a Black Pb 360. it will be my fourth reader.... Selling off my 505 to a friend this week. I can only have two readers at a time (keeps the wife happy) and will only have two 5 inch devices. Have the Pocket Pro so it will be interesting to compare the two.

I know the PB 360 is a bit 'old' but still seems one of the best readers for those of us who prefer a small screen. Just hope the contrast is good...

Question... how is the PDF reflow?

I normally read in epub, fb2 and PDF...so not a great fan of PDF but sometimes need to read in it..

First, congrats on getting the PB360. As a thoroughly prrejudiced owner of one - I feel you've picked the best!

Although I think it's best to avoid PDF on a 5" reader, the PB360 does a good job at re-flowing ... especially if you are re-flowing text only. I re-flow mostly library books, which ARE mainly text. It's not the greatest, but it works. To be honest/fair, I don't really notice I'm reading a text-based PDF book. It works fine.

Happy reading.

Cheers. I figured as much but just wanted to check with someone who knew. Yes looking forward to trying out the 360.... the customization seems one of its better aspects...
