  • Hi Lotta, I whish I were on my way to Sweden. Then maybe we could meet over a cup of coffee somewhere, and I would gladly let you have a closer look at my jetBook Lite. It's not that I'm that far away as I live on the island Bornholm, but I have no errands in Sweden for the time being. Also please understand that I had no intension to start some war whether e-ink or a reflective...

  • Hi Lotta, I think you maybe is confused by the TFT-type screen. You know TFT screens from TV's and notebooks and maybe even mobile phones. All these screens are backlit or sometimes sidelit. It is the backlighting which tires the eyes when reading for long periods. The TFT screen on the jetBook is reflective and have no built-in light. You need some light source from the outside to...

We all have our own tastes, and this can not be discussed, however the e-ink screens in general are not too sharp, and do have (in my opinion) a annoying blink every time you turn the pages. The 5-inch TFT LCD screen on Ectaco jetBook is manufactured by Toshiba. Its...

Well yes, I ordered the jetBook Lite from their British site: http://www.ectaco.co.uk but it were sent from US. They offer free shipping in western Europe by the way. > I see.

I have them on a HD though. I have >very little need of synchronization and portability. I really don't need the portability, that is not the reason I keep my ebooks on a USB key. It just happened that...

  • Hi Lotta, Strange behaviour ClearType had on Calibre, but great that you somehow managed to "correct" it. I don't use Calibre to catalogue my ebooks, but uses a very simple system. I have the ebooks on a 8Gb USB flash drive. I simply have folders in the alphabet and sub-folders by author. Series again in sub-folders under author. Filenames are "Author - Title". Very simple but all...

  • Tjá'ba'! Lä´get? If I remember correctly you are using a 10 inch ASUS (correct me if I'm wrong). I have Calibre on a ASUS H1000 and have absolutely no trouble in reading the menus or anything else. Maybe you should try to re-install Calibre to see if this will do any difference. To my knowledge there are no options to change the font settings in Calibre. Calibre makes its own...

Cross-platform (Linux, Windows and OS X)) I think it will do everything you want, and best of all... Its free. If you whish you can also visit Mobileread Forums where you can get lots of information of Calibre, Ebook readers and...
