Mebook is my ‘replacement’ of the turbo x e-reader that froze two times after its purchase. As noticed in my previous posts , the fist time froze in 14 months and the second time in only 9 months after the service replacement . The bad service from the customer service dept caused me a major problem by everyday printing my news from the net using facilities of our office. This way I was urged to everyday print at least 10-15 sheets of very condensed text
Luckily I have found a ‘fantastic’ as per most comments the model Mebook a supposedly “e-reader” with multimedia facilities. I have bought it last month via an Amazon seller called Fowlers for GBP 54 . instead of the more advsertised MOnster Bookshop (link to the mebooks page ) for GBP45 due to unknown restrictions made by Amazon's order confrmation page
Here are the specifications from the Amazon's page
- Reader formats: TXT,FB2,PDF,PDB,EPUB,SKT,HTML etc. main format
- Audio formats: MP3,WMA,OGG,FLAC,WAV,AAC,APE etc.
- Video formats: MKV,AVI,RM,RMVB,VOB,DAT,MP4,FLV,3GP etc. 720P
- Image formats: JPG/BMP etc,background
- TF,Maximum 32GB supported
Fowlers were very prompt to receive the money and sending it immediately , saying they have an excellent shipment service. There was a 3 workdays delay due to Holy weeks in between. The orthodox Easter followed the catholic Eastern , and I received in Greek Holy Thursday instead of the Roman Holy Thursday
The package was too funny:
Most sellers from Amazon including the company use a good packing. IN a very contrast to them , Fowlers packed the box inside a big A3 envelope , inside protected with air bullets . Even too funny was that they put only my address as recipients address !!!
No invoice was in the package !!! Also no reply from my two emails the one was the confirmation of receipt ! That means they have a very bad after sales service (??)
Opening the envelope was a thick carton box with a mains power adaptor to the UK standards and a thick carton box , I color referring to a generic e –reader with some general specification on the ‘bottom left’ on the cover part . Its end uses an magnetic mechanism to stick into the remain box of the packet . This is exactly the same standard of boxes I remember since the early 2000s when I bought from Hong Kong several other gadgets (mp3 players ). Look here!
THis is the mains power socket adaptor THis is unsuitable in Greece since a different standard is used
Inside the box there was the me-book at the top inside a white protective layer. Mebook has a black color exactly as advertised., laid inside a black protective ribbon to reduce shocks .
A thin carton paper to separates this set from the remain accessories : mains adaptor (UK standard?) , earphones and as USB cable etc
The mains power adaptor , has also a different plug , I am not sure but reminds me the UK standard
The opposite plug is similar to the Nokia's mobile phone plug
This is the first part . In the next parts I will post an analysis of the Mebook’s operation and compatibility. Expect it soon!
