Advice for a reader with warm frontlight

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 12:12:24 GMT

Hello I plan to buy a reader. My wife owns a Kobo Aura (1st edition) which is nice except: 1) the frontlight, even set at the minimum, is too bright when reading in complete dark 2) I would prefer a warmer color than the blue frontlight of her Aura Do you have a model to recommend with a better frontlight (less bright and warmer compared to the Aura 1st gen) ? I know there is the Aura One but I think it is too large and expensive. Thank you very much :)

Which one? Read PDF and marking tool. Evtl. take notes.

Hello everyone, I just registered as my friends and all the shops I went have no clue if this exists. I am looking for: Use case A) Primarily: a eReader to read my technical books when I commute (3:30h per day) in the train. I want to markup the important section, evtl. Add comments. The PDF shall then be exported from the eReader and I would the the same editable markings in my acrobat PDF reader. Use case B) Optional (I think this doesn't exist): I eReader with for example OneNote on it. It is not appreciated that I use my laptop to take notes, so I am looking for a tablet or eReader to do so with e ePen. Does this exist with EInk? I am happy if I can solve already use case A:). Thanks Ralf

300ppi reader with some kind of sync?

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 20:24:06 GMT

My Kobo Aura HD just died, and my previous thread ( didn't gather any answer, so I thought that I'll loosen the requirements. What reader with 300ppi screen would you recommend as Aura HD replacement? I'd love to have some sort of sync between that eink reader and an Android device. Right now I'm eyeballing: - Onyxboox C67ML Carta2: has android so I can probably cook something up (aldiko, fbreader?), too bad about the screen not being flushed - Tolino Vision 3 HD: has own "cloud" sync (although it seem to require account with a German/Austrian/Swiss bookstore), seems to have problems with zooming in on images, looks nice otherwise - Kobo Aura One: really high quality build, but no sync whatsoever, and unlikely to happen. Also, 8" might be bit on the big side. There's also Onyxboox Kepler Pro, which seems to have a lot of good stuff (nice screen, Android), but I just can't find a store in EU that sells it. Any other devices worth looking at?

Anyone own/used a Yotaphone for ereading?

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 01:44:05 GMT

This phone looks really good... and the price is so cheap now... less than AUD190 from reliable sources e.g. Look at that e-ink display... 960 x 540... looks like a very good device with ability to run full Android on the e-ink too. Anyone used or bought it? Care to share ebook reading experience? I have unfortunately spent a bit more for a Oukitel K6000Pro which comes with a 6000mAh battery (yes battery life is important for me)... but not good for ebook reading (I get headache staring at LCD for over 2 hours... and I use the computer too much as is). This could have cut it if I use the e-ink screen...

Looking for a replacement for my T68

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 13:20:25 GMT

Hey guys, I recently had my T68 stolen, so I'm looking for a replacement ereader for it and was hoping you guys could give me some direction. The ones that I was considering were the Onyx T76 and C67ML Carta 2, however, if you can convince me on a different one, I am open to suggestions. Here are the things that are important to me: * Less Common fullscreen refresh (I hate the fullscreen refresh, and I would like to see it as little as possible. And if it does happen, I'd like it to be fast) * MicroSD storage * High Resolution * Stable * Solid Construction * Frontlight * Good Battery Life * Easy to set up and use * Screen size at least the size of the T68's or greater (I realize the C67ML's size is smaller, but that's probably the smallest size I would consider.) * Android w/ Play Store (There are some apps that I want from Android that I just couldn't get on a non-android device) * WiFi Here are the nice-to-haves: * Good positions and feel for buttons * Ability to change the standby and off images * Extra buttons for custom functions * Black device * Bluetooth connectivity * A stylus for additional input (I still want to be able to control it with fingers) * Removable battery (no idea if any ereaders actually have this) * Audio (I'd probably never use this for audio books, but being able to listen to music while reading is appealing) And here are the things that bothered me with my T68: * Unstable (It would reboot whenever it was ~20% battery, and would also reboot sometimes when getting to a page with an image in one of my ebooks. This also tended to be when my battery was lower. Additionally, apps would hang a lot more often by the time it was stolen) * No way to control apps that used the volume rocker for paging (the page buttons were page up and page down, and I could find no way to toggle that) * The UI was ok, but it wasn't an amazing interface for organizing and searching through my ebooks. I would appreciate any suggestions you could give me. Also, comparing or contrasting suggested ereaders with the ones I am looking at or with the T68 would be greatly appreciated. :) Thanks for the help in advance! -God Ginrai
