Dont buy pro 903

Hello

I just phurchased pro 903 an its really awful. The menu changes are slow and flickering. My mathematics books; all the graphs dissappear and the text is very bad. Also the unit is freezing itselves and i have to reset. Event the fonts on the calendar on the standard homepage is very poor!

Firmware was update, but same shit. Last official firmware was march 2011

STAY AWAY.

Regards
Odd

Maybe you should have informed yourself better before buying?

What you report is neither unknown nor uncommon with E-Ink devices. Page updates take their time,and PDF support is poor.

You should go for some 10" Tablet like iPad or the likes...

Hello. you are wrong.

I purchased a Kindle DX Graphite and its excellent with PDF`s. It even has a free 3G connection. And i have an ipad, and its useless for books reading, and even more useless with pdf`s. I actually find the ipad useless for for to many things to defend its price.

It depends on the PDF. I do have some which are poor and very slow (page turns) even on KDXG.

Hello Sky!

I have about 50pdf`s on my DXG, some are 1200 page calculus books, and and others are 500 pages normal books. In none of mye pdfs did i have problem reading the text or the equations and graphs as i had with pro 903. You are correct that some of the pdf`s loads slowly, or that page changes takes time, but after starting to read a book and using the bookmark function i usually never have problems reading. With pro 903 it often freezed so i had to restart it, never has happened to the DXG. So DXG could be slow on som large pdf`s, but works and shows all info. Pro 903 freeze, has problems with scaling text and showing graphs.

And 903 is a more expensive than the DXG. And the DXG even has a free 3G connection.

Hi Oddeman,

I am glad you are enjoying your DGX, and long may it last! Of course many things make for how much you like your device, and in the end it may come down to a matter of personal taste, but I do have to wonder whether there was a problme with your particulr 903. I have had mine for almost a year now, and it never froze once (actually, it did once while I tried to stop the upgrading of the firmware). I also have loads of papers and books with plenty of formulas and graphs, and again I never had problems displaying any of them, not one single time.

I am of course not disputing that you have had problems, only I would like to clarify for those who read these pages wondering whether or not they should buy the device that the behaviour of your 903 is definitely not standard.

There are many many things that irk me about Pockebook-the-firm, and I know that I am in good company , but this in a sense testifies to the fact that if the device weren't any good, you wouldn't have so many people still sticking to them

I agree with Paola.

I have the DR1000s., The M90 boox Onyx, Pearl screen, and the 903 Pro. The best and most complete is the Pro 903
