Re: The Blaze ET, do you like it?

So does the battery not hold a charge?
I've always wanted a blaze, but I could never afford one.
Then again the way I spend money it's no wonder I can't lol.
Anyways, that is correct.
The blaze has built-in wifi so you can download books straight to the device itself or an sd card.
It's also got Internet Radio, which I think is pretty cool.

so-so color identifier, you can record with it, and I understand that the
OCR feature is serviceable. I just wish that I could find a way to charge
the battery in mine so I could check it out.

I have the station on the Victor Reader Stream. If you need a computer for
the Blaze ET, I will be looking for a home to sell it. I traded someone a
$900 piece of equipment that I had, but of course I would not sell this for
that much as it is less than that from HIMS. I do like the fact that you
can record from fm radio on it, though. I am unable to get anything on the
fm, but that is because I live where there are a lot of mountains, and I am
living in an apt building that has 11 floors in a highrise.
That is a lot of concrete and steel. There are medical buildings all around
with medical equipment interference. I would have to find out how much this
is from HIMS, and then make it less. I did not know that you needed a
computer to use it, or I would not have traded.
