3) Cropped (by PC software Version):
Attachment 85076
Thanks! Can't see it clearly but it seems readable, isn't it? I'm thinking about getting a JBC, want to use it for university cause I have to print a lot of documents similar to that I uploaded and other sort of pdfs and I think it will save me money in the long run, also weight in my bag.

I also wouldn't like to have to convert or resize every document I upload to the device so it is readable cause it would be a time loss. Hope JBC fits my needs.

JBC has the zoom in percentual (80%, 90%, 100%, 120% etc.) but it hasn't at the present moment the two-point-zoom and for this reason I prefer cropping by Pc before loading it in my unit.
I don't know if the new firmware includes this useful feature.

Another thing: if you have the Powerpoint why did you have converted in PDF using 2-slides-per-page layout intead of one-slide-per-page? If you print on paper it make sense because you can carry less pages. But In digital environment you have no need to save page and the slide looks bigger in any device and you will have more space to take hand written notes

True I ussually convert it using 4-slides-per-page, don't know why didn't realize that with 1 per page would had been better =)
Really looking forward to read reviews about new firmware ^^ hope that when it comes out it does it full of new features

If it supported BT with a stack for keyboard support and sold for $299 I would probably get it in a heartbeat.

i have a question about the folder management of the JBC with the newest firmware. can you put files and folders on your micro sd card as you like and then open the folders and show the files on the JBC? or do you need to make this "My Books" folder and put all the files without subfolders in this folder?

The folder "my books" must contain your books and pictures.
The only other file type it recognizes is music files, they go in the music directory.

So without any subfolders? I have a lot of pdfs sorted in a lot of subfolders. If it is necessary to put them all into one single folder it would be really bad. Most stuff is from university and a lot of practicices and solutions are named very similar or equal.

You can use subfolders. You can not put more than 299 or something files and folders within one folder. But generally, if you have more than 100 books, it's recommended to put them into subfolders, otherwise browsing to the correct book takes up too much time.

thanks for your answer.
the package of my JBC came yesterday, but i was not at home so i picked it up today. now i am in university so i cannot test it fully. first impression is positiv.

short story: after mailing to ectaco germany i ordered a white JBC for 400€ and paid directly via paypal. end of last week the status changed to "complete" and this weekend they took the black JBC to their product range. when i saw this, i wrote an email to them and changed my JBC to a black one. now i have the black JBC in my hand =)

i will post some pictures later that day. i can write a (short) comparison between the black JBC, a pixel QI notion ink adam, a ipad 3 and an amazon kindle DXi (i will get the kindle DXi next week) - if anyone is intrested in this.
if there are some PDFs you are intrested in to show on these devices please post it or send me a -one click hoster- link via PN.
i ordered some 2x LED book lights from hong kong (cost only 3€ and works with 3 AAA batteries) and will post some pictures using this lamps in different light conditions.

is Ectaco reliable on updates? or it just screw everything?

what do you think about buying 10.1 Samsung Galaxy Tab vs Jetbook color?

and is Jetbook color the most reliable e-ink approximately 10" dispaly?

Thanks

That is the screen itself. It is a 4:3 screen. Not the narrower screen that is used on a Galaxy Tab which is 16:9.
