When we started the week we didn't think we'd be raving about an e-book reader by the end of it, but since iRex’s iLiad arrived in the Stuff office all we can say is, we're smitten.The A5 pad-sized wonder is good for displaying black and white text and images, as well as converting our incomprehensible scrawls and doodles into legible text and graphics.Its secret is its wonderfully sharp 'Electronic Paper Display' which really does read like the normal printed wood pulp we know and love.Contents can be transferred to and from PC by Wi-Fi and there are around 49,000 compatible e-books to choose from. Going by our usual practice of getting three chapters in before being distracted by Guitar Hero, that little lot should take us a wee while to get through.Essentials iRex iLiad Reader Price: £435 On sale: Now Contact: iLiad Reader
