Prestigio PER3072B e-book reader – review
Prestigio PER3072B is a cheap e-book reader with a 7 inch TFT screen and the ability to display photos and videos, and listening to music. It supports a multitude of text and multimedia formats. It has 2GB of internal memory and supports MicroSD cards up to 32GB. How well does it perform its intended function?
The screen size is 7 inch and the resolution of 800 × 600, enough for comfortable reading. Angle of visibility of the screen are also eligible, but due to the fact that the screen uses TFT technology, which is also glossy , do not expect to read outdoors.
Reading and zoom
When reading epub format is possible to change the font size and with pdf format, zoom can be used (per page, by length, by height, S, M, L and select the zoom). Will be focused on the pdf format because the epub format reader does everything right. Pdf of the book is best to read in landscape mode. Mostly I use the setting “at length” but it depends on the appearance of pdf file. Turning the pages and zoom is pretty quick if you don’t have too many graphics in the books, in which case, reader sometimes takes 4-5 seconds to turn page.
Ports & body
The keys respond quickly to the pressure, but they are a little too hard. The entire device is made of plastic, there is no grinding on pressure, but device has a “cheap” feeling. Ports are as follows: 3.5mm (headphone jack), MiniUSB (for charging and PC connection) and MicroSD. All ports are located on the bottom of the device, next to them is also key for powering device. Loading book to the reader is only possible via the USB cable, which is the biggest downside to this device.
Battery reading is around 10 hours, as it was declared, and decreases if you use some of the multimedia features, primarily video and music. Video can be viewed only in landscape mode. While reading G-sensor rotates the display automatically depending on how you hold the device.
Conclusion: Prestigio PER3072B is a good choice considering the price. The positive sides are his screen resolution and battery life. Bad sides are glossy screen (outdoor), weight and lack of wireless connectivity.
