FRY's Electronics Astak EZ Reader Blow-Out

Dear All:

The rebate will now be in effect on July 3 thru 5 at FRY's Electronics. This is a $30 rebate and FRY's is promising the lowest price ever on the Astak EZ Reader 6 inch.

Frankly I think they and we are both crazy to sell a fabulous device, that has proven itself, at such low prices; and likely it will never be anywhere near this low again.

So... if you are in the market for a new 6 inch eBook Reader NOW is the time. You WILL be able to download onto it the Adobe Digital Editions from a very soon firmware upgrade. The device is E-Ink, displays twenty languages and handles 14 formats. It has stereo MP3 with an EQUALIZER. It displays horizontally and vertically. It has three major font increases and we give you easy steps to load additional fonts onto it from our FAQ sheet. It has USA tech support and USA full warranty. The device is known at FRY's Electronics as rock-solid, the lowest returns of any eBook Reader. Every MobileRead Forum personwho has ever purchased one has only raved about how good it is. There has never been a single negative review.

This is a BUNDLE Pack and includes free 2GB SD card, card reader-writer, 200 free pre-loaded classics, and comes WITH a crush-resistent leather case, USB cable, AC charger, wrist leash, ear buds, and even a screwdriver for the easily replaceable and rechargeable battery.

ALL we know is that it will be under $229... we do not know FRY's final price. LOOK at the ad for FRY's on July 3 thru 5!!

You are correct, killer deal for what you are getting.

I sure can't see any downsides, and if I were in the market for another one........

Hi Robert,

Could I order EZ Reader on-line or have to go to Fry's shop to buy one?

I am guessing you can order it online. I checked their online store and it was listed, though not at the lower price, which I am guessing won't be changed until the 3rd?

Thank you Robert, I am indeed very tempted every time you write about the discount. However, I have been holding out for a unit with that Epson controller ever since it was first discussed last October or so. I simply cannot give in now! After waiting so long I must hold out a frew more months for an EZ Reader Pocket Pro or Mentor Intrique or EZ Reader/Mentor whatever is next before the end of the year.

Dear All:

You can order the EZ Reader from FRY's.com for the same price with the rebate.

This deal is about as good as it gets on eBook Readers. This is now an exceedingly proven device that will give you everything and more that you need from a Digital Book Reader. It is thin and very light (under 7 ounces). Wired magazine said it "seemed to have a higher resolution that any device we tested and will load a gazillion books in a gazillion formats seamlessly".

You cannot and will not go wrong with this device and it is backed by Astak!!

Holdingout for Pocket PRO

Dear Sara:

I surely would not wait for the Mentor Intrique as the release date is still not at all set. The PocketPRO is for real and is a tangible plus. Maybe 6 more weeks of waiting.

What I want to do is get the Cool-er likers to compare. As often said, I have nothing bad to say about any device... BUT compare the EZ Reader against a Cool-er before you buy. DO IT FAST... the sale is July 3-5 and it is not a hard decision.

Wouldn't this post have been better located in the Deals section? Or are we treading dangerously close to the world where Katie Couric is reporting the "news" that Pepsi-co has a new flavor.......
