It's arrived!

My, that was fast! I think I only ordered my PocketPro last Friday and it arrived today (Wednesday in Aussie land) in all its white loveliness. The SD card full of books was a nice treat, and I am already thoroughly engrossed in Flatland. I haven't experienced eInk before but it is a very easy display to read. I'm getting used to the slight delay with switching pages and almost have it down to the exact millisecond where one the page I should press the button so it changes over the instant I've read the last word. My family are all suitable impressed...I think I will have to hold on tight to it! Can't wait to take it away and be able to have all my favourites at my fingertips.

Well congratulations, glad you're happy with your Pocket Pro (especially as I'd feel guilty if you didn't as I brought it your attention).

Very impressed with the shipping, I was happy myself at 8 days....and yes, keep a firm grip on it, I showed my wife my PP and now she takes it from me and uses it more than me. Wonderful device, once again I'm glad you're happy with it.

Mine is also here in town, and UPS tracking says it is out for delivery. It is 8:20 AM now, so as soon as UPS gets here, I'll start it charging.

You do know that it'll arrive at 5, right?

Aww, sweetie-pea.. you are such a lovable optimist

Actually, I had it shipped to my work, and they delivers those in the morning/early noon and do home deliveries afterwards. Fedex and UPS normally are here at the office by 10 or 11.

Great, Melbournian. And, while you're reading Flatland, consider that you're engrossed in a two dimensional world (the ereader) with so many other dimensions to explore as you're transported from page to page. Have fun, mate, and welcome to the club. We all get so fussed about the machinery here, we sometimes forget that it's all about the adventure of reading, the exploration and the discovery. Our wee gizmos just make that a tad easier for us. Neil

Dear Melbornian:

Please do not forget to fully charge no matter what the gauge shows initially and please do go to our website and read the FAQ sheet (www.theEZreader.com). These two things can make a huge difference.

Thank you!! I know you will be very happy and, yes, that E-Ink is easy on the eyes!

11:45am and my PEZ just arrived. It looks to be in top notch condition. It'll be a couple of weeks before I will be able to give a definitive analysis. Fingers Crossed!

It is now on the charger (plugged into a wall socket for faster charge).

I hope third time is a charm

My black replacement was received by Astak on Monday and I am waiting a refund.

I have decided to wait a while before taking another plunge.....
