Yes, it seems that the device can open and read ebooks and PDFs well enough and there is a micro sd card slot for additional storage so one could load a fair number of books onto the device. However, the limited specs would seem to affect one's ability to install and use a host of other apps...

So if one just wants to read books on a large ereader, it might prove sufficient...

However, even if that were my sole purpose for wanting the device, I would worry about the level and quality of service that would be provided afterwards. Certainly the way the campaign has been managed doesn't inspire confidence in their ability to manage the inevitable problems which will arise once people start testing out their devices.

And it seems that a few more user comments have been posted on the Indiegogo webpage. Again, they don't inspire a great deal of confidence:

My initial impression of the device so far is limited to some simple questions—are you going to provide any support for how to install amazon kindle, other programs, how to log into the e-reader store? I tried to make a login and it didn’t work now says “failed to make login.” This is not an encouraging start. What about android 5.0 as in the stretch goals? if you are selling a device you need to provide some basic support and troubleshooting.

is there a firmware upgrade ? it says one is available but can’t connect to the url

David Feig, the settings app did crash a number of times for me in the beginning but seems to have settled down. I now get every now and then the message “Unfortunately, Settings has stopped.” It usually happens when first starting on the Settings’ drop-down menu. The more I work with the e-Reader, the more it seems to settle down. The e-reader seems to have a short-lived shifting sound but nothing rolling or sliding a long ways. Thank you for the report on the Kindle app.

I got my reader today! Uh, when I move the reader slightly to change the angle of holding the device, I hear something sliding internally. What might that be? And the settings app keeps crashing. And I can bring up the play store to select the kindle app but it won’t install.

I play around the e reader, install a couple of stuffs and read PDFs. Everything seems fine. However, at some moment when safaring the E reader store, the screen freeze and the e reader just stucks. I cannot reboot the system. Can anyone know how to bring the machine back to life?
Not encouraging at all.

Also not encouraging is that they are actively deleting all requests for money back from their Indiegogo webpage. And, yet, they are leaving other simple questions unanswered. So it is not a case of them not having visited the webpage recently.

Now, it could be that those individuals were offered their money back before their comment was deleted, but somehow methinks otherwise as the total amount of money raised on their campaign webpage has not changed. It did use to change when backers applied for refunds before the official closing date of the campaign.

It will be interesting to see what comments emerge over the next few days as more and more people receive their devices and start playing with them.

Just to confirm for backers and those using the ereader now. I was able to use google play store to install amazon kindle app and access my books. It took a very long time to download and install—not sure if an issue with the slow cpu chip, the lack of memory or a wifi issue. But once set up it did work.
The software on this is not like a typical android tablet—there are limits. Some more information or a tech support website would be really helpful.
Not promising. Really speaks to the lack of customer support as of yet. Indeed, they seem to be experiencing difficulties just getting tracking numbers out to people.

Still find it hard to believe that this device was produced with just 4GB of internal memory. That may be sufficient if you just intend to read books since it does also have a micro SD slot, but it seems wholly inadequate if you are hoping to install any apps which this device was touted as being able to handle.

Hopefully, somebody soon will publish an independent video review of the device in action.

Just received the box. My first impression was a bummer. It is shaking inside. Some parts are loose or I feared worst it may not even power on. But it powered on and I am charging now. Significant sound of a metal click-clack when i move the tablet even slightly up or down. Lesson learnt never order from these early funded programs. Will have a detailed review in a week..

Well, it looks like at least two people have been able to back out of their pledges for the campaign as the total funds raised has recently fallen.

Don't know if those were new backers frightened off by the comments of users which are gradually emerging and who took advantage of the grace period usually given to back out of a campaign commitment, or if they were previous backers who had requested and were granted refunds.

It will be interesting to see if the trend continues.

Although, from the comments, it seems that some users currently seem satisfied with their devices, others seem very disappointed and are highlighting some worrisome issues...

What's most noticeable in all of this is the resounding silence on the part of those running the campaign. Doesn't bode well for after purchase service... With so many interested people on the sidelines watching, what a great way to sink any potential interest in a future campaign.

More of a quick start guide, really. Still, one wonders why it wasn't preloaded onto the device or the url prominently posted on the webpage... Of course, it could be that the guide describes a generic model and the actual device in question is configured somewhat differently.

On another note, it seems that their campaign has attracted a few more backers as their numbers are now healthier than they previously were.

It makes the mind boggle what with the comments that are currently beginning to trickle out. However, I suppose that there are those with considerably more disposable cash to throw about than I have... Good luck to them. Never been much of a gambler myself.

Painful? Not in the least. Kept my money in my pocket.

Disappointed? Very. I would really like to have seen a large reliable Android eink device with touch screen capabilities come to market. Seems that I will have to wait a little longer or settle for an Onyx Max.

Flabbergasted? Completely. With any new product, there are bound to be some birthing pains. There will inevitably be a few hiccups as bugs in the software and hardware are discovered. But it seems that the campaign organizers are experiencing significant difficulties just getting emails with tracking numbers to their backers. How will they cope with faulty devices and bugs in the software?

Yes, there have been some positive comments on this device as I in fact mentioned. However, to date, the negative comments have been greater and significant. And here are some more just in:

I have one of these devices. The biggest problem with it at the moment is the OS stability and the failure to keep the Play Store running. I have resorted to downloading older APK versions manually and transporting via SD Card to get the toy limping along. I think its going to take time as Goodreader are behaving as per their reputation from what I can see.

This is my experience to date. I thought you guys might be interested.

-----------
I have tried various versions of the google app store and various versions of google play services. All crash before I am able to perform updates or installs (have now given up with this)
I have found the Dolphin Browser from the GoodReader app store to be solid and reliable.
Amazon Kindle 4.8.0.188 works well for me so far
Evernote 7.2 seems to work ok and takes notes etc (I need to use it hard to test it). I wil try more recent versions.
Nova launcher is fun as the animations can be shut off but it really need a White theme (still looking)

As I now have a machine I can use I might try some other fun apps plus some productivity.

When the reader is running... ie between crashed... it is a great piece of kit. I do hope that the netronix team or goodereader can get the os stable and the Play Store functioning reliably.

Question.. does anyone have the Google Play Store working reliably?

The forum is a great idea but tricky to work with... and it seems to be down right now... hence reporting here.

Throughout this whole campaign the GoodEreader team have been really bad at updating. I am seeing the same consistent behaviour in the support threads. Some very simply question are not getting answered. This worries me.

The simplest of those questions is.. Will this device be getting a firmware upgrade to android 5.0? I wish to also ask.. Will this device be getting a firmware upgrade at all?
------------------

I think i can piece together a working useful machine with the right APK's. Bit lame but I can use it for what it was bought for. and a bit more.

Thank you for sharing, I'm interested indeed. I have already bought Onyx Boox Max and so far I can see that the inconvenience of using the pen is nothing compared to inconvenience of device instability. My thought was that if the Good-E-reader will prove to be a good device I may donate my current Boox and treat myself with the 'better' device.

PS. both devices seems to have almost equal hardware type. Have you tried flashing Onyx firmware?

Don't flash Onyx software to Netronix device. It will brick it for sure! Hardware is quite different. Onyx uses another kind of digitizer in Max, Max is equipped with Bluetooth, audio output, special hardware buttons, more RAM and storage space (also very different configuration as Netronix). Onyx also uses different screen waveforms (developed by Onyx), which would not work with Netronix version of screen.

I really wanted this device to be a success. That's why I kept holding off on the Onyx Max. It was very tempting to become a backer of the campaign. However, the way the campaign was handled really made me question what would happen after the device was delivered.

The ensuing mess seems to be confirming my earlier suspicions. They seem very good at deleting emails, but not so good at responding to simple questions. And still the mess continues:

Wow, many details. I thought that apart from added or removed peripherals (bluetooth, touch screen, etc) both devices use the same SoC and the same e-ink screen so everything is there designed by the manufacturers of those components with no space for customization. But of course one might expect that nothing good will come from flashing random firmware on your device, it was a silly note from my side.
