Importing PDF's

Hi
Importing PDF's about 20 of them, do I keep them as PDF or convert them to ?? If I do convert them do I just go with the standard default settings or do people have from experience any suggestions

PDFs don't convert well. What do you plan on reading the PDFs with?

I've purchased one of these haven't actually received it yet so dont know how well it will work.
Is there a reason to convert it ? - for no good reason got it into my head that epub or whatever would be better ??

It says it supports PDF natively in the list of supported file formats for that device - so definitely do not do a conversion. As Synamon says, PDF conversions are best avoided if at all possible.

I just convert them and see how it turns out. 50-50 in my experience. Sometimes the bad 50% can be easiy fixed but mostly life is too short.
