Forgot to add that the price includes shipping!

If I wasn't in the midst of reducing my gadget collection I'd be seriously tempted to try this.

The pictures are the best I have seen of the hardware. I still think the controls are a bit "busy", but it is hard to argue that it isn't worth $170.

Yeah, I'm not sure I would buy it sight-unseen. Does anyone have one of these? Is it easy/comfortable to turn the pages? It's a good price and will read many formats that are typically available.

Yes, I have jetBook and like it very much. I like TFT screen more than e-ink.
I purchased it from NEWEGG for $199.95 long time ago but price $169.95 sounds unbelievable! NEWEGG doesn't charge taxes outside of CA.
I may buy one more unit and present it to my dad for father's day.

You can read jetBook reviews below:

Thanks, Kris! I read some of the reviews and I'm pretty impressed by it. Think I'll end up getting one for my dad.

I have checked the ectaco web site for my country.
"ECTACO jetBook e-Book Reader Deluxe" costs $446


I am SICK and TIRED.
Why do all retailers and manufacturers think that if they sell something in USA for $250 they can sell the same thing in Europe for 250Eur plus tax plus whatever they think European Suckers^H^H^H^H^H^H^HCustomers will pay?

Can you order it in US and ship it to Europe? I think it will be much less expensive.

It is shipped to Europe from the US. (It's come up before.)

There are a few companies that do a brisk business buying things for you (using a Credit Card with USA billing address) and importing then here.
You still have to pay for handling + shipping + Value Added Tax (approx. 20%, depending on country) + whatever customs officer decides.
In most cases you pay less this way than if you would when you buy from local retailer.

Because you still owe the USA a lifetime of gratitude that you all aren't speaking German/Russian/Persian/etc. right now.

plus take into account that income of someone working full time at Mininum wage is less than 16,000 a year in the US. and there are way too many of these type of people.

If the average income is the same in the UK, I would charge the same price too.
