The contrast looks rather poor.

It's like they don't want to sell these things. No touch screen. No front light. And no 3.5mm audio jack (which some claim). The jury is out on whether they have microSD slots or not. Some, at least, do. And the screen is better than the pictures EVERY seller uses. I've attached three pictures from a user (Mike) who bought one of these, that were posted on eBook Reader...

https://blog.the-ebook-reader.com/20...-up-on-amazon/

Probably the best way to see what a BK4304 screen looks like is to find reviews and images of the TrekStor Pyrus and Liro Minis. It's the same screen that is on these.

https://the-digital-reader.com/2013/...llest-ereader/

If you go there you'll see a very similar Standby screen.

Another review (with more and better) pictures here. Also a 9 minute video review.

https://www.the-ebook-reader.com/pyrus-mini.html

Here's a comparison of "Digital Ink" (O-paper) and Pearl E-Ink posted on eBook Reader, Nate says "it's just as good."

I've attached the comparison picture between it and the Kobo Mini from that article.

When you go from 4-gigs to 8-gigs, the price rises by 8 cents.

(Click on United States first and then toggle from 4 to 8.)

That's Awesome - does that mean I can get a 1TB model for $10 extra?

Keep scrolling to the bottom of the page, and you'll find all sorts of odd-ball ebook readers with low prices.

No, it's the same really as buying anything from outside your own tax/customs region.
People in the UK mainland , Kent UK and NI UK are going to have fun after the end of December 2020.

Some countries don't deliver imports at all. You've to go and open the parcel at the depot. Here it can come by regular post or courier to the door. Some stuff shipped by Courier arrives at the door via the regular An Post van and they'll collect any extra non-EU duty VAT plus €8 at the door. Other stuff, if it attracts duty or VAT because it's an import from OUTSIDE the EU over €23 may require an online payment to the Courier to get it released from customs. This is quite normal anywhere and more severe in most countries if you try and import animals, plants, seeds or food. Some US States don't admit foreign butter! Kinder Chocolate eggs/toys can't be imported to the USA.

Below €20 from outside EU is no problem at all. ANY value goods from anywhere else in the EU is no problem at all.
