  • Not my favorite
    Verified Purchase

    This is just an OK product. Hard to get books loaded onto it. For the money my Kindle Fire far surpasses this products. I don't think there's any comparison to the ease of use and quality.

  • My mother LOVES it
    Verified Purchase

    Bought this for my mother last Christmas- she absolutely LOVES it- probably the best gift I ever gave her... she has friends that have Kindles and Nooks that like hers better, and it was cheaper! Color screen is fantastic, and she can read it during the night when she wakes up 10+times...GREAT product for seniors!

  • Great for Travel. Great price.
    Verified Purchase

    Bought this for the in-laws. They are avid travelers and they love this reader. The price was economically more feasible than other more expensive readers but I did not feel we were sacrificing quality. It's a year later and they are still thrilled.

  • Returned it, buy a Nook!
    Verified Purchase

    I have a Nook, and love it. We decided to buy our motherseach an e-reader for Christmas. My mother-in-law opened hers Christmas eve, and we had a really hard time getting it to work. Not user friendly at all!!! Next morning told my mom not to open hers, that we were going to send both back and buy Nooks. Would have been cheaper from the beginning if we'd just bought the Nooks b/c we got dinged pretty badly when we returned the Literari that had been opened, and we hardly got anything for it when we returned it. Save the frustration and don't buy this, get a Nook!

  • Sit down with a good book
    Verified Purchase

    This is a great little alternative for a kindle, or a I-pad. It is full color. It was a bit different interface than I have used before. It was easy enough to figure out. I read the directions in detail. It does help. All in all a good buy.

  • next best thing

    played with the kindle before but it was so drab and when i found an ereader in color, i was so excited to try it out. it's amazing!! full color, easy to navigate and everything you buy you own and can access anywhere. i love the fact that the literati is so light and portable. i take it everywhere so i can access magazines when i'm trying to kill time. i definately recommend this product for all ages since it's really easy to use and getting one for my mom for christmas.

  • Kindle Convert

    I've used the Kindle for a couple years now, and I think this Literati is a great device! The bookstore is easy to navigate, the screen is bright and sharp, AND COLOR!! Not much content yet but what I've viewed looks great. Best thing is it works flawlessly and page turns are very fast. Overall great reading experience on this device.

  • Warning!!
    Verified Purchase

    Nowhere does it state "This device does NOT WORK with open Wi-Fi." After a frustrating couple of days trying to find the books "preloaded" or even trying to purchase from the Kobo "store," NO BOOKS ARE IN THE LITERATI LIBRARY. I finally called the Technical Support, and after 20 minutes of navigating all over the place, the support person asks "was there a lock next to the network information?" Since I didn't know to look for that, I had to navigate my way back there. This is when she states "oh, the Literati doesn't work with open WiFi." I asked WHERE does it state this before you purchase, or even in the manual?? She replied that it does not say this ANYWHERE, it's just something "that they know." Definitely returning this item before getting any other unknown surprises. Very disappointed. RAS

    My husband bought this for me for Christmas. Didn't make it under the tree. Easy to use, fast download, large font size. Love, love, love it. My 8 year old grandson learned to use it in a matter of minutes. Looking for a car charger!

  • Clarification for usage

    I have read some of the reviews. I have purchased the Literati and have been happy. I am trying to figure some things out but the issues that I have seen from others made me write this review. You can load books onto your Literati from your computer and you don't have to have WiFi on your computer to load them on there. So you don't have to have WiFi to get books onto your Literati. I also had trouble plugging my Literati into my computer and getting it recognized but I just plug it in, then unplug it and then plug it in until something clicks and it works. I have better luck when my Kobo program and the Literati are turned on when connecting them. Then you just have to hit sync and it will sync and load your books onto the Literatie and update all bookmarks, etc. I have really enjoyed my reader and am learning more about features every day. Hope this helps.
