Just got my 511EB reader yesterday and i am completely satisfied with the product, my e-books loaded without any problems and music plays well enough. i have some site photographs that display well enough also. A colleague bought the more expensive sony version and now wishes that they waited and bought the elonex instead, as this seems better value for money and the extra features are not really useful enough to justify the price.
if the new update gives note taking functions, their mood will be unbearable.
