    Product Features of Delstar eReader

    Rating Average

    One of the key features of Delstar Booksmart eReader is that it not only serves as a reading device, but also functions as a music player and picture display device. It features an MP3 player and picture viewer, both of which are built-in. The display screen brightness is adjustable, so those who prefer a white background can increase the brightness from the settings. However, the standard beige color background is easier on the eyes for most readers. The display also has the option of reverse setting with black background and white text, which is more suited for night reading.

    The unit includes a carry case which protects the screen against scratches and jolts. Software upgrades are available online which enable the eReader to read eBooks in various formats. The newer versions of the product are expected to include the upgraded software, which will eliminate the need for extra downloads.

    Value for Money

    Rating Average

    Delstar Booksmart eReader offers a good screen size and sharp resolution, considering that it is a basic eReader product. It also includes MP3 player and picture viewer, which are useful value additions in such a basic product. The product has traditionally sold from Walgreens stores as well as Walgreens online store, but it is not available at Walgreens now. It can be purchased through Delstar’s official website for a price of $129.99. The prospective buyer can contact the company via email for more information regarding online sales and discounts. Overall, the product delivers a fair value for money considering its low price.
