ViewSonic VEB620 review

 

There's nothing out of the ordinary with ViewSonic's ebook reader, the ViewSonic VEB620. It features a 6-inch electronic-ink display with 800 x 600 resolution – a good display with crisp highly readable text – but improves on similar devices with a...

ViewSonic - VEB620 ereader

 

Ereaders are starting to gain ground in the eyes of the consumer, and become desirable pieces of hardware. At the same time there is something of a price war starting. This has to be a good ...

The ViewSonic VEB620 ereader is far from being the best ereader we've used. The processor is slow and the build feels second rate. Add in the relatively high price and we'd suggest you shop around rather than plumping for this offering.
