I haven't had any issues with those things, either.

There's no excuse for crashing, but if the PDFs are complex (scientific) you can consider optimizing them with k2pdfopt or some other tool.

BTW, my Lux 5 (quite similar) from Februari has an odd key. Clicks softly, and when intentionally pressed off center kinda sticks. As it's the back key it's not a real bother.

Oh thanks for the suggestion, I will definitely look into that!

I can imagine it would still be an annoyance, I do hope I'll just receive a new one without those issues friday...

Handed it over to the shop yesterday, they will attempt to repair it, and if that cannot be done, replace it. So I'm really hoping the replacement/repair will be good...

Good luck. I hope it all works out.

The PDF reader included in firmware 6.xx is total bullshit !
There is no issue with the hardware.
The solution is to downgrade to firmware U632_5.19.832, to do this use the 'Manual Update' procedure described on p. 93 of the User Manual.
You may still encounter problems with some pdf files (scanned documents), in this case you may try to 'OCR' it with OCRmyPDF.
It is a good idea to install the latest release of KOReader for the missing formats.
Hope it helps

Just want to point out, I've had mine for about a week or so now and I've had zero problems with it. I really like it a lot. I love the buttons! I actually have mine set to landscape for reading with the buttons to the right, so I just use my thumb to go forward a page, very effortless reading, just squeeze my thumb as I'm reading when I want to go to the next page and I'm pressing the button. The smartlight is very nice for getting the light just right. I like the pocketbook cloud which allows me to email books so I can sync between my pocketbook and phone if I want to read on my phone or another device. The pocketbook has handled epubs very well.

Very happy with the purchase.

Same here. I haven't read much on it in the last month and a half (haven't read much of anything in that time) but I've still only charged mine once (it was delivered almost three months ago, on January 25th). It's at 76% charge now. I've only used it for ePubs, so can't really comment on PDF issues. This is my favorite reader (and I've had (have) way too many of them).

I do feel sorry for A-Curiosity though. I hope the trip to the shop worked out well — or is working out well.

I am quite dissatisfied with my touch hd3, just opened another topic on it actually. My issues are different from yours. Also from NL, by the way.

Thanks! The shop has sent it in for repairs, five days ago, and they guarantee fixing things in 10 more days, and if they can’t repair it, they’ll give me a new one. I’m really curious as to what it will be, and if it will be fixed, since the final ‘error’ description of the store seemed to be written by someone who had never handled an ereader before.

Thanks, I’ll try this when the new/repaired one still has these issues, I hope at least the buttons will be fixed.
