Total waste of money. Never could get it to work right. Battery was DOA, which confused the issue at first. Fixed that, then found the on-screen keyboard impossible to use. No stylus was included & I had a hard time getting the right letters to come up. In fact I never was able to type in the whole word; the first letter might finally come up, then the screen would "freeze" or go to the number screen. Just didn't work right. Also, my screen certainly never looked like the one in the picture here. Only black & white and no graphics at all. I bought it because I wanted a quick reference guide, but that didn't happen. Only thing I liked about it was the size.
The major problem I have with this unit is that you cannot control the brightness. It is pretty hard to read unless you have it held in just the right angle and with enough outside light, a very annoying aspect of using it. Also, you cannot change the size of the lettering. It is as it is, and that's it. It is useful as a take along reference tool. I carry it with me in my bag and if I need to know something while outside, it is good to have available. Once in a while, I will also use it to kill time (i.e. while waiting in the waiting room of my doctor's office). But that's about it. If I would have a choice now to buy it again, I would not, but it is pretty cheap and if you can use it in more situations than me, I guess it's worth it.
Bought one for my 14 year old daughter, she easily downloaded all her favorite music, games to play and books to read.She liked it so well, she talked me into buying my own instead of borrowing hers all of the time.Now when we travel, we have something to keep travel boredom down to a minimum with a small tablet that fits in our purses or pockets, we are loving them.
This wiki reader is a fantastic product. I find it very easy to use and also convenient. Its great to have when you go on long trips or are just bored and want to learn something new.
The battery life is great the the screen is very readable as long as you have adequate lighting. You can also update the wikis and add new wikis such as wikitionary or wikiquote from the wikireader website.
Overall Ive had a great experience with this product.
After one week, it got stuck!
The letters are not bright enough!
It took a long time to arrive. It does come in handy when you want to find quick information.
