should i buy a reader in china?

Hey there, been reading for a while, first comment.

I was waiting a long time for a perfect reader for my needs (pdf\chm support, RTL language support and maybe some color)

Recently I gave up waiting and decided to buy myself my first reader. my first idea was to buy a kindle (well known pros and cons, high availability), but since i am going to visit china next month, i started thinking about buying it over there, and maybe get something closer to what i wanted.

so, if anyone did the same \ happens to know something on the subject, please let me know

cheers

Welcome to MR.
The Hanvon E920 seems promising, (if you can find it).
Try your luck. Check out the discussions here:

By all accounts, you won't get a device any cheaper in China, and after-sales service could be problematic in the event of problems. I'd stick with the Kindle if I were you.

What if your perfect device bought in China, starts malfunctioning or gets God forbid, broken? How would you get a warranty service for it?
I'd stick to those devices that provide warranty services in your country.
