I too love my PB302 except the screen, in my case, it came fitted with antireflex folie and now the contrast is bad, getting eye strain if i read continuously during evening. However no glare and could read well in bright day light.
I understand pocketbook has confirmed before in this forum that they would replace this glare / anti-reflex screen with a matte screen for all existing customers, free of cost.
Can someone from PB confirm, when this will start, where this will be replaced, what should be done from customer side, who pays for the postage charges?

Thanks a lot!!!can you tell me,from your perspective,because video is video,is it big difference from the other two readers?and do you think the other folie 3M is it beteer in terms of transparency and reduction in glare?i mean is it worth it to try to seek and buy better matte folie and try to replace the one on PB302?

Danke for your time

much appreciated!!!

Hi!

The AR folie placed on your PB302 is product of a big selection. We actually tried a lot of AR sheets available on the market and picked the best of them for our readers. So is your current AR folie much better than 3M & Co... Furthermore, the folie is fitted and placed by manufacturer directly and he did it very well. It is not so easy. 80% of our customers, who ordered the AR folie separated from Reader and fitted it to PB by himself, did it wrong (with small bubbles or dust between folie and screen).

If you put the jpgs in a pdf file (with any free pdf-printer) your wife could zoom in. ( e.g. Get it @ http://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php)

I LOVE the song PocketGoods has used in the video!

Ulli, have you tried to read PDF'd manga with the zoom function in a PB360? Which is your opinion?

So i did compare tonight with bookeen g3 and i have to say:
1.the glare of PB302 is big,you can see if you focus on it light bulb in the reflection,on bookeen you see blurry spot.
2.contrast of letters is very week compare to bookeen,but looks like antialliasing of letters is better on PB.
3.you feel the strain made by other layer(antireflective matte folie),on PB,so if you look under greater angle, letters loose readability and contrast,bookeen is like paper,no other layers,but no touch screen.
For me if i can find good matte screen,with fast refresh,and short loading,i wont care about wifi,which didnt work BTW,touch screen.
I did made pdf,but i got trouble to move the page around when zoomed in,didnt really worked,so no go.
i will search for other divice,but iam glad i had this PB because i narrowed my needs from ebook.

@Logseman: I got no manga, but it tried with a comic (colored one). In my eyes its readable in landscape (widescreen). Ok sometimes the font is a little bit small, but readable, through the high res of the 360. Its a little bit hard to move the page with the joystick, but it works, and i guess you get in common with this quickly. Its a little bit tricky to get the best zoom for it, at my place the "fit to width" didnt work that great.

I compared it with the 302, this would be my favorit device for it. Here i realised that the possibility to move the page with the touch is a very cool function for such ebooks, nearly a must-have.

Manga must be readable in landscape, I'm sure. If it's readable in my iPod touch, it ought to be readable there.
