Elonex 700eb ?

i have ordered one of these from asda for £80 i have read a few reviews and for the money it seems ok,
especially when you take in to account the video playback facility.
any way has anybody seen one in the flesh or own one.
if so what did you think.

cheers,mick.

I have a review unit. It's a pretty decent e-reader, but it lacks most of the bells and whistles.

It's great at video, though.

hi mandyloo

i have had no problems with my 700eb,however there is a firmware update which fixes a problem with the device crashing if its reading a large ebook (no idea what size).
the update is -

That's happening because of the power saving settings. You'll need to go to the settings menu and increase the time before the screen shuts off.
