View Quest - BookBox 5"inch Full Colour eBook reader

The Bookbox has been designed from the ground up to be the perfect eBook reader. From the moment you pick it up, you will notice how comfortably it sits in your hand, thanks to the weight distribution and rubber style finish.

It's when you hit the power button, however, that the Bookbox really stands out from the crowd. The 5" extra-bright, LED backlit screen is perfect for reading whether you are in bright sunlight or in a dark bedroom. If you prefer, you can change the background and text colours to whatever suits your eyes best. The BookBox supports Adobe DRM eBooks which are available from book retailers around the World. In addition, you can view magazines, newspapers, catalogues, user manuals, recipes, bus timetables and work presentations. The options are endless!

The BookBox isn't exclusively for book fans though. The full colour display is perfect for watching your favourite movies or storing or viewing your photo collection. If you want to give your eyes a break, just pop in headphones and listen to your music collection, or have it playing in the background as you read.

Ease of use is key with the BookBox. Content couldn't be easier to add. Simple connect the BookBox via the supplied USB cable to your PC, and drag and drop your eBooks, videos, photos and MP3's.

This is nice if you are not serious about reading. This is more like an android tablet. The point of ebook readers is that they use e-ink - a technology that does not have a backlite so that you dont get eye strain reading it. With proper ebook readers with the correct screens and larger screens for only a little more (Kindle is under £100) i would go for that.

Not voting cold as someone may like it, but if you read a lot of books i would avoid your eyes will appreciate it.

Kindle is £109
