Smile I love what I love, V3!

I am enthusiastic on reading books and magzines, E-Book Device is fantastic for me! After I compared the devices (hanllin V3, sony 500,505...), Hanllin V3 is my best choice! I have ordered one and it is coming to me now!

I'm a little curious about how you can say that the V3 is "perfect" if you haven't actually used it yet?

Heh. I have found many of my choices/purchases to be "perfect" up until the point I start using them.

I have tried PDFs on my Hanllin V3, it runs very fast and displays perfectly! It has a lot of advantages as many people say, the only disadvantage I discovered is about the leather cover, it is easy to be dirty, this is my own opinion. Cheers!

I wouldn't say that PDF's display perfectly on the Hanlin V3, in many cases they're very hard to read unless you switch to landscape mode which gives a much larger view. Then again, this isn't a flaw with the Hanlin, it's a flaw with PDF's which shows itself on all 6" eInk devices.

There are some PDF's that do still work well on a 6" display and the Hanlin does display those well and page flips are just as quick as any of the other formats.

PDF on the whole is a very poor format imo. Even CHM which is commonly used for windows help files would be a better alternative with reflowable text they're a lot easier to read.

Better the dirt on the cover than the device Really the only issue I've had with the cover is it shipped with a very strong smell that I really didn't like. I've left the case to air for a week though and now it just has a faint smell of the material it's made with which is ok.

The PDFs I have tried are running very well, can you tell me why please? Maybe a good man always get a good device, and a bad man often get a bad one, haha! Just joking. Thank you!

I have made a decision to buy a Hanlin V3, it is the best one for me. Hanlin V3 has the highest performance-price ratio, I'm going order one.
