That's a great price! I bought mine at Staples around Christmas time for $99.

Depending upon what you're going to use it for, I'd say it is a great device. I have a nook classic, nook color, iPad, and the Libre Pro is my favorite device for reading. It has a non-backlit LCD screen that actually looks better the brighter the light shining on it.

I use Calibre to sync ebooks to it. I have no experience in attempting to sync DRM'ed books to it though.

Crap, but cheap!
If you can spare 130$ for a NOOK,KOBO or KINDLE go for them. You'll have a far better display, 20-30 times expanded battery lifetime and access to shops as well as sideloading (OK, a bit trouble with the Kindle,but possible)

I really love mine. I paid about $99 a week before Borders quit selling them. I specifically wanted one that I could add non-DRM books to. I love the multi-format ability and the ease of use.

I've tried tablets and iPods to read from, even a windows phone. I know that the libre is low power and not good for anything but reading books but that's exactly what I wanted it for. I haven't had any trouble with it.

As soon as you realize that all it is is a reader then you'll love it.
