First, let me qualify this by saying that I've owned a LOT of ebook devices. Just about everything over the past 10 years, and this is by far the best I ever used. I was googling to see if I could find a replacement battery for my old device and I found that this company still makes and sells brand new REB1100's - now upgraded to 1150.
If you want review - look for RCA1100 or REB1100 - there are a ton of them. The screen is backlit, very long battery life, it has the perfect heft of a book, can be read in right or left hand, the buttons are a joy to click, font is adjustable, you can adjust the font, rotate the screen, it's a very comfortable device to use. If it weren't for the fact that I JUST bought a netbook, I would buy one in a second. As it is, I'll probably pick one up for christmas:http://www.ebookwise.com/ebookwise/ebookwise1150.htm
