Youtube video comparing 4 different ebook readers

An interesting comparison video is on Youtube today.

Its a short demonstration of the HanLin V3, Cybook Gen3, iLiad Book Edition and DR1000S.

(With thanks to 'Mars Girl' author Jeff Garrity).

Edit: we have 2 videos now. Please see:

Quetion: what book format was used? The same on all, one hopes. Don't think it was the same file, though. Which makes it harder to judge relative merit.
By the observed performance of the non-iRex devices I would guess it was a pdf file rather than an actual ebook. Would that be accurate?

thank you for this very interesting video ! i'm going to stick this thread to make it easier to find ; i think it will be really helpful for people to see the comparison when they're trying to make their choice.

Loved the vid, I like how you showed the same things whenever possible (the menu, changing font-size, etc)

We used the Mobipocket version of 'Mars Girl' on the HanLin and Cybook (the author, Jeff Garrity, has his own thread here and gave us permission).
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29061

We used a PDF I created on the iLiad to show the zoom and annotation-ability and then the Mobi '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' (pre-loaded classic on the Book edition). We used a newspaper on the DR1000S to show the PressReader application.

Over, the bug and the walker arghhh

I'm more than decided but a friend found it quite helpful. Now I need to make him change his mind. A well made video nevertheless!
