I am looking for an e-book reader capable to display scanned books (with each page being a scanned image) like those availabe at Archive.org. I already own an ordinary Kindle (i.e. not the DX-version, the display of which is too small for this purpose, however. I abhor reading longer texts sitting at the computer and instead have them printed and bound, but that is fairly expensive and not really what I want If I am merely interested in "testdriving" a scanned book.
What about e-book readers like the PocketBook 902 or PocketBook 912? These have a 9.7" (24.63 cm) display (measured diagonally). For comparison, my Kindle's display's diagonal measures only 15 cm (about 5.9").
Does anyone of you have any experience with this sort of "large" e-book reader in connection with image-pdf files? I'm especially interested in two things:
- Is the reader able to display image-pdfs well so that they can be read without a strain for the eyes (both as far as display size and resolution is concerned)?
- Is the reader capable to deal with large file sizes (starting with 50 MB but sometimes well above 100 MB)?
