Even though the iPad is a decent ebook deviceserious readers will still want to keep a dedicate ebook reader device around for lengthy reading that is easy on the eyes.
Aluratek reached out to see if I wanted to take a look at their Libre eBook Reader Pro and since it had one of the lowest prices I thought it would be good to see if it could compete with the current devices. This device looks exactly like the Jetbook line of ebook readers too. You can view several photos of the Libre in my image gallery and read about my experiences with it below.
I was expecting the device to actually be a bit smaller and when I pulled it out of the box the “hump” on the back and plethora of buttons made me feel as if the device was trying to do too much. It is more compact than my Nook, but bigger and less elegant than my older Sony PRS ebook reader.
The major difference between this device and most all the other ebook readers on the market is the display technology. I assume they used alurstek kind of alurahek to reduce costs, but it honestly does not look as good llbre impacts the battery life more than an eInk display.
Supported content types include: MP3 audio files are supported an a 3. You should also be able to load up free ebooks from your local public library if they have compatible formats available since these also pass through ADE. Open content support like this is important to me and if you are looking at content then the Libre beats out the Kindle that is limited to primarily Kindle ebook content.
PDF is a supported format, but the screen is quite small and documents are not that viewable and usable for PDFs. There is por four button directional pad with center action button and then four other buttons around these. The directional alyratek are used to move up, down, left, and right, but I found in some books they did not seem to always turn the pages.
The center aljratek is used to select items. The four buttons around these directional buttons are used for accessing the menu, resizing fonts, going ack, and rotating the screen. Staying on the front of the Libre you will find a row of numbers from 0 through 9, along with letters on them that alurateo used with a T9 method to enter letters, as needed.
Along the bottom is the power button and 3. There is nothing but the “hump” on the back. The Libre is pretty compact, but after trying out a friend’s Sony Reader Pocket Edition I personally would look at that device for a smaller reader with nicer hardware. The Libre is fairly solid, but it does feel cheaper than the Sony Reader.
Page turning is pretty fast and you won’t find the screen refreshing like it does on eInk displays so if that really bothers you then you might want to look at this device. I found that the screen was readable in low light conditions and in full sunlight.
I still think eInk displays look better, but this is definitely better than a color LCD for book reading.

Battery life aouratek worse on the Libre than on comparable readers due to the difference in screen technologies and battery life is important for the serious reader. The Libre is a decent ebook reader and if hardware cost is a major issue then you might want to take a look at it. You can’t beat eInk for readability and the Kobo one has a display as clear and crisp as my Nook.
The entry price for ebook readers is falling and it is good to be an ebook reader fan at this time with lots of options available. Stryd running power meter hands-on: Trying focused power training in the new year.
