Re: Best between Pocketbook 912 or Onyx Boox M92 or Ectaco Jetbook

I have Pocketbook 912 which I am using from last five month. It is really nice reader to read electronic book. The Pocketbook 912 is a solid and well built device as well as slime with smart look. It has Eyesight safety which decreases potential eyestrain and it provides more stable images on flat panel display. For connectivity there is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth facility which provide easy file transfer from any other device. You can expand it upto 32 GB with great battery back up. You can read upto 14000 pages continuous in single full charge. It has inbuilt Music player so you can listen Audio book as well as listen your favorite Music at the time of reading books. It is really easy to carry even you can carry it in your pocket also. It is compact, fast, eye safe and much more so I think you have to go for Pocketbook 912.
