The Icarus Illumina XL is a brand new 8 inch e-reader and many people have been wondering how it handles PDF files? Today, we evaluate the standard PDF e-book and also a very extensive document with lots of images and a custom layout. This video should give you a sense on what the XL is capable of and if will suit your needs.
I found that the XL does a really good job on rendering an e-book that is only available in the PDF format. There are hundreds of sites on the internet that allow you to download free e-books, so there is no shortage of content. On the flip side this e-reader struggles with very complex documents, such as the DND Monsters Manual.
