Cruz Reader Coming Soon!

Velocity Micro Cruz Reader, Black (R101)
Cruz Reader
Well, I did it – I ordered a Cruz Reader! After much research, I decided it was the best eReader option for me. I tested a Kindle and it was ok but the lack of backlight was a problem, as was the maximum viewing size for a pdf without scrolling. I sent the same pdf to my sister to try on her Cruz and it displayed better due to the bigger screen. The other deciding factors were price and color (the screen, not the case). So I’ll make a full report when I get the thing in a week or so and figure out how to use it.

    Interesting. I have got a ton of PDFs that I either have to print out or read on the computer. I'd much prefer to have something portable to read them on - I'm toying with the idea of getting one of the new generation iPads later in the year.

    Did you try them out? If so, what was the reason for not choosing them? (I'm guessing cost?)

    No, I didn't even look at the iPad - didn't want to spend that much and really don't need all those features. The Cruz is only $120 and is supposed to do everything I want to do, plus a bunch of other stuff I probably will never use:)
