4 month old iRex iLiad Book Edition (w/accessories)

Hi All,

Now that my DX will be arriving in a few days, I can go ahead and post my almost-brand-new iLiad Book Edition on sale here at MR. Here are the details:
  • I bought it from E-reader Outfitters for $599 (which is the retail price).
  • I also bought the M-edge genuine black leather cover for the iLiad for $54.95.
  • I then bought an A-data 8GB compact card from Amazon for about $25 for external storage.

The iLiad is brand new and works very well. The developer packages have also been installed. The only reason I am selling it is because the DX has a larger screen, the Amazon store and the ubiquitous (at least where I live and work) Whispernet service.

I am offering all of the above 3 items (iLiad + Cover + CF card) for sale at an amazing price of $500! That's a 25% discount compared to the original prices. Shipping will be extra.

Please PM me if you are interested. Note that the earliest I can ship it out is this coming weekend.

EDIT: Another thing I forgot to mention is that the CF card has the ipdf installer so that you can easily switch between different versions of ipdf on the iLiad. This also includes the latest version (which I created along with help from other forum members) in which the 5-page flip has been disabled since it was annoying to accidentally invoke that long flip and then having to flip back 4 pages.

Hmm, I guess $500 may be too expensive in today's economy*for most people. So, I am going to go ahead and ask for an even crazier price of $450 instead of $500 for the iLiad, the cover and the 8GB CF card. That's a $675 value for $450!

I really need to sell the iLiad to offset the purchase of my brand new Kindle DX (thats' coming tomorrow ). If the DX hadn't been released, I would have stuck with my iLiad for a couple of years since I really do like it very much!

As before, shipping will be extra.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I bought the iLiad brand new from e-reader outfitters and not used. I have the original packaging. You can see the screenshots I took (and posted in another thread) when it arrived.

Hello dontriston,

I am located in the USA. I would be happy to ship the reader to Spain as well if you pay for the shipping and any customs/excise duties etc.

Hello Missbea,

No I have not sold my iLiad yet. It's still available for the posted price of $450 and includes a leather cover and an 8GB CF card.

If still available, I am very interested in purchasing. I was headed for a Sony Reader because the iLiad is prohibitively expensive but this brings it into my price range.

Hi, I was wondering if you still have the Illiad? And how much will the shipping will be to Indonesia? Since usually that's the main "fail" factor when I tried to buy something from overseas. Thanks.

I want to thank everyone who has expressed an interest in the iLiad. I had hoped to finish the sale and close the thread today but the person (from the forum) who committed to buy the iLiad from me has reneged at the last minute *grumble*.

So, the iLiad is on the market again and I am corresponding with the all of the other nice people on a first-come-first-serve basis. I will close the thread as soon as I have been successful in selling the iLiad.

Thanks again!

Question about Pdf's

Hi:

One thing I am curious about is: Can you take notes/highlight on the pdf's that you read w/ the Iliad?

Thanks for taking the time to respond -- sorry about your anticipated sale -- how do you like the DX?

missbea,

You certainly can annotate and write on the PDFs on the iLiad. That's one of the definite advantages of the iLiad over the DX.

I love my DX ... I have to say, the amazing battery life, the larger screen and access to the Amazon store make me glad that I made the decision.

Thanks for your reply :)

Hello again:

Thanks very much for your reply. I am really interested in how you take notes and highlight on pdf's. I do quite a bit of research and this would really be a key point for me. I need to annotate when I read pdf's so I'm wondering how you would do this with the Iliad. Is there a keyboard like the DX or a touchscreen.

Thank you again for answering my inquiry -- I am interested in your reader.
