The market is continuing to flood with e-reader systems. Recently we have had the Apple iPad come to market as well as the Opus the Sony and the Kindle. All of these are excellent e-readers. However, they all come with many extras that many e-reader users just don’t need. The Libre Pro e-reader is the newest to come as a no-frills, lightweight system. Coming from Aluratek, the Libre Pro e-reader is a great system that rivals most of its competition and yet is very affordable.
Navigation with the Libre Pro E-reader
The Libre Pro e-reader is a pretty intuitive and easy to use system. The Libre-Pro is only 7 ounces and is easily held with one or both hands. The navigation buttons located on the bottom of the system are soft to the touch and not too small for most fingers. You will find a power button, the headphone jack, and a hand strap loop on the side of the system. On top of the Libre Pro e-reader you will find the SD memory slot and a mini USB port.
Display with the Libre Pro E-reader
The 5 inch Toshiba monochrome LCD screen on the Libre Pro e-reader is intended by Aluratek to be a size that is comfortable to read and yet easy on battery life. It is a small screen as compared to many of the other e-readers out on the market. However, the resolution on this LCD screen made reading easy on the eyes.
Battery Life with the Libre Pro E-reader
Aluratek has stated that the Libre Pro e-reader has an excellent battery life. The e-reader will stay charged for up to 24 hours of continues reading. The Libre Pro e-reader battery will last 30 days when on standby.
E-books with the Libre Pro E-reader
Since the Libre Pro e-reader comes with an SD slot, the system will support SDHC cards up to 32 GB. The Libre Pro e-reader also supports several file formats, such as PDF’s, text, and Adobe ePub. You can download books manually or you can purchase them from any ePub compatible stores. A nice added feature is that the Libre Pro e-reader comes preinstalled with 100 classic titles to start you e-reading quickly.
Conclusions with the Libre Pro E-reader
Price at under $200 the Libre Pro e-reader does lack a few things the more popular systems have. There is no Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity with this system. All downloads are manually done. However, at this price point, you would be hard pressed to find an e-reader that performs as well as this one.
