Is it worth buying a cheap e-book reader? Kruger & Matz tries to convince us that he presents the models of Library 2 and Library 2S. What's different and is it worth buying?
E-book readers are becoming more and more popular, and it is easier to meet someone with a reader in a tram than a paper book. With their dissemination, prices are falling – now cheap reader can be purchased for PLN 300 . How does Kruger & Matz find itself in this context? Surprisingly well, as evidenced by two new models: Library 2 and 2S. Is it worth buying them?
Kruger & Matz Library 2 and 2S
At first glance, the new Kruger & Matz readers do not differ much. Both have 6-inch screens with a resolution of 758×1024 pixels. I must admit that the manufacturer has applied to the appearance and in this respect Library 2 presents itself very well. Where to look for differences?In parameters. Library 2S is a reader with the E-Ink Cart screen , while in the cheaper Library 2 we find the E-Ink Pearl technology. There is more savings. The cheaper model will not find the screen backlight, the built-in memory (4 GB) and the battery capacity (1500 mAh) are smaller. This compensates for the price (PLN 299), but in my opinion it is worth adding to the better equipped Library 2S .
1000 audiobooks to start
The reader is useless if we do not have anything to read on it. Already for the start, the manufacturer provides 1000 items that will take us at least until summer – 2019, if you want to read all. However, if you have your own favorites, then nothing stands in the way. The built-in memory is 8 GB, and in addition, it can be expanded by a further 32 GB thanks to the slot for microSD memory cards.
How much does Library 2S cost?
As I mentioned before, the cheaper Library 2 is cost PLN 299 . I did not fail to mention that it is better to add to the more expensive Library 2S, which in the official shop of the manufacturer will involve expenditure of PLN 399 . In my opinion, it is worth paying extra PLN 100 for such facilities as better quality of the displayed text, more space for data and … a nicer color. For both readers, you can buy a dedicated case for PLN 35. I would recommend doing it, because it would be a pity if the device lost its charm after a few months of use.
