poor value - way more expensive than the competition, especially considering the features

no wireless / 3G connectivity

not as high-end as the Kindle - no aluminum back, lower build quality, lower quality e-ink display

low build quality - creaks under a bit of pressure

2 agree

vastly inferior battery life compared to competition

looks like a Kindle clone

Office format support is hit or miss - often displays gibberish or nothing at all

The iRiver Story is a digital e-reader featuring a 6” e-ink screen, a QWERTY keyboard, 2GB of built-in memory, and optional memory expansion via SD/SDHC cards. It can be used to read digital books, view still images, and either record or playback MP3 audio. In fact, a single charge on the battery can last through approximately 28 hours of book reading, 24 hours of music listening, and 5 hours of voice recording. And with the QWERTY keyboard available, users have the additional option of editing documents, taking notes, or filling in a diary. The most notable drawback to the Story is its lack of connectivity, as it is restricted to a single USB port.
