I picked up an antique reader today at lunch. The experience was awful. The finish on the reader was rough. You had to hold it in the 'ON' position constantly to get the reader to function. The page turn action was grossly large and mechanical feeling. There was no way to adjust fonts or print sizes. Although slightly lighter it was uncomfortably bulky to hold, it actually required two hands. There was no dictionary function at all I had too look up words using the internet of all things.
I've come to the conclusion that the antique reader just wasn't a very good buy. My advice is to stay away from the so called 'Deadtree' and 'Treeware' readers as much as possible.
