Elonex eBook
REVIEW

Elonex eBook

The Elonex eBook has a lovely screen and lightweight chassis, but it's let down by fiddly controls, slow, buggy software and an anorexic features list. It's no match for Sony's venerable, metal-clad Reader PRS-505, let alone the Kindle, which is expected to arrive in the UK soon

Interead Cool-er
REVIEW

Interead Cool-er

The Interead Cool-er has decent format support and a good screen, but it's outclassed in nearly every department by the Sony Reader PRS-505. As they cost roughly the same, it's hard to see why anyone would choose the Cool-er

Endless Ideas BeBook
REVIEW

Endless Ideas BeBook

Relatively small and compact, Endless Ideas' BeBook has an impressive screen, good file-format support and exceptional battery life.

Bookeen Cybook Gen3
REVIEW

Bookeen Cybook Gen3

The Cybook impresses with its relatively low price and great quality screen. There's room for improvement, however, as the eBook navigation and library functionality are not as good as those of its rivals

iRex iLiad
REVIEW

iRex iLiad

The iLiad has the best screen we've ever seen for text and impressively long battery life. The asking price, however, will be too high for most, and the device's software needs to be improved before we could truly recommend it. At present it's good, but not quite as good as it should be

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650
EDITORS' TAKE

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650

The 6-inch touchscreen-sporting Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 gives you everything you could want from an ebook reader. If you're not bothered about music or expandable memory, its smaller sibling -- the Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 -- is a more attractive proposition.
