    "Way too many complaints about the product. Issues ranging from connectivity issues, which are important for devices such as this, to non-reporting of stats, to inaccurate stats, to it not working at all should keep you from buying this. In addition, a product isn't very useful if it tends to break down very rapidly."

    "I love this little gem! Although I do have a Kindle Fire, this lightweight device equally as good. I love that I can load books on it and take it anywhere. The resolution is great and the screen is the perfect size. And you honestly can't beat that price either.
