I might be confused but I own a cybook gen 3 (was considering getting a second as my girlfriend has all but taken this one) and the gen 3 has some of the best pdf support out there.

what is it that is making you say it doesnt support pdf?

The Gen3 can display PDF. But it's very poor at displaying PDF in Letter or A4 size without some soft of program to pre process the PDF and even then it might or might not be all that wonderful. There is no 6" eink device that displays Letter/A4 PDF naively that does a good job.

Basically it crashes with most pdf files that I try. These are technical pdf files with lots of diagrams which may be the problem.

With simple pdf files it may work.

For ebooks it is perfect.

Cheers

Is your Gen3 still for sale? No, I'm not interested in it. I'm just asking so I know if I can close the thread or not.
