Let's go toadvantages and disadvantages
Of course, the price. The goal was a quality cheap reader.+
Compactness. The screen in 5 вЂќis absolutely readable, and the book itself is placed anywhere.+
The screen, in comparison with Sonya, even new ones, on the screen of pearls (350, 650, 950), is really white.+
Rich in software capabilities (On Linux) was regularly updated.+
A lot of opportunities (partial updating of the page, games, calendar, notes, dictionaries, etc.).+
Good grade (case, memory card, all cables, adapters, even headphones, even nischebrodskie).+
He eats a lot of formats.+
Good build quality, I wondered for a long time how so much in such a thin and small device I could fuck.+
Even the quality of the packaging impressed me, it is pleasant to hold it in my hands.+
And she really worked for a month, maybe a little less.-
Immediately to the main thing - it is buggy. A lot of buggy. Pages were turned over (fb2 format) once, sometimes immediately after 2, an unexpected shutdown, freezing, swallowing of parts of pages. -
Despite the quality of the manufacturing materials and the assembly, the ekrn was not strengthened by anything and I broke it 2 times (!). -
The cover in the corners rubbed for a week of active use. -
One more thing about the case - the book is fixed in a case on three sides, it has quietly flown through the hole at the top anywhere, but the problem is solved by bending the side fasteners. -
The firmware, despite the abundance of functions, was raw (disgusting support for pdf and office formats, problems with fb2, it was not difficult to kill the book programmatically). -
The case is easily scratched, and also collects prints, which greatly spoil the appearance (black version) Experience and personal feedback
I used the book for half a year. For six months, both books turned out to be broken, which I had because of my friends, but this is not the problem. Despite the fact that I could not get enough of myself, I could read on the subway, on the ground, at home, on trips, in the country, in general, anywhere, I was deprived of it for a month because of SC. After I broke it for the first time, I passed it to a service center in China Town, it is the only one in Moscow. I was warned that the case is rare. But not so much after all! I waited patiently for repairs during the month when I was announced a price of more than 6 thousand, I took it from there. At that time she was worth less than 6k in the store This is a word about the SC. I bought a new one (I had to do it right away), it was also broken by me. After that, I decided not to contact Digma again. For some reason, neither the huge Amazon, nor the Sonya, also of a decent size, did not break after being served from half a meter. I will not continue on product quality. It is necessary to add that there were no problems with the firmware (in terms of regularity and ease of updating), moreover, the creators through dixlab (forum for firmware digma and other devices) could leave suggestions, ask questions, and be sure that you will be heard . For example, I was the initiator of making the games in the folder, they were lying on the menu separately. For this they thank you so much. And yet, an absolutely useless feature, not mentioned above, is a gravity sensor for rotating the screen.
I will pass on to the next test subject.Amazon Kindle DX Graphite.
In no case do not think that I am comparing these devices, the Kindle is several orders of magnitude higher.
brazenly stolen from their site and Yandex.Market.

A HUGE screen that lasts for all the queries you can imagine. Internet, pdf, etc.+
The book is flying, really. Pages are quickly updated, all sorts of menus, settings, applications, books, everything are loaded.+
There are no complaints about the firmware. There is even a hope that someday all these wonderful quirks from Kindle 3 will ever be in this device. In the meantime, everything is so wonderful.+
The device is pleasant to hold. To the touch it becomes clear that this is a THING.+
Beg argue withJaw
, Russification of the device has passed without any problems, the crack on the new firmware out quite modern, quite high quality. And about the transfers - for example, I see no difference on this screen, whether they are or not. It played a role rather in my previous book. +
Convenient feature with collections. More precisely, I like it, when everything that you have on the device, I mean games, books, pictures, dictionaries can be arranged in any way you like in collections (original folders that only the Kindle itself sees)+
And so on, since everything that is in this book can be attributed to pluses.-
Honestly speaking, I donвЂ™t even know what to write ... If you really find fault, then -
The browser is damp, opens 2/3 pages. For example, the Russian bash, unlike the American, is not loaded at all. -
The back cover is scratched very quickly, gaps are formed. -
The case is a little expensive ... Now they are already from alternative manufacturers, cheaper, but still 2500 for a wrapper is a lot, and without it there is nowhere. -
And the book itself is also not cheap ... But in comparison with the analogues of the same price category (Sony, for example), it has no equal. Experience and personal feedback
Over the entire period of using the book (a little less than a month), so much positive has accumulated about this model that there is nowhere to go. "Glamorous iron" fully pays for itself. According to my personal observations, reading on readers somehow turns out to be faster, so after several hundred books we can assume that the device has paid off. This book is pleased with everything and the most detailed little things - build quality, materials, design, software, the process of reading a book turns into something more. Do not think that behind all the gadgets you can forget about reading, rather, the other way around. Returning to the pluses, I really liked the system for delivering files to the device - you drop the book in any format onto the Amazon box - it comes immediately to your device, in the mobi format. If there is no permanent access to the network, there are convenient converters. For example, I really liked the caliber, an absolutely omnivorous converter. Well, there are also libraries such as librusek, from where it is possible to download immediately to mobi. ItвЂ™s me that you should not be skeptical about the вЂњuniformityвЂќ of this book, everything, in fact, is very simple. Amazon support is also very pleased. Everything that I downloaded on their website was archived (the subsequent ability to download in one click directly from the device), on a book, it was suggested to download to a computer. Registration is simple, everything is thought out. I was pleased with everything this book was associated with. And, of course, special thanks to ZeroChaos, who Russifies this device.
