Pocketbook Inkpad 2 or Kobo Aura One (+ Koreader)

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 13:29:59 GMT

Which ebook reader would you recommend me getting? I am leaning to the Pocketbook Inkpad 2, because they say that it is a good PDF reader. However, I don't know if the Kobo Aura One is actually a better reader if you install Koreader on it. Desired features: - Dropbox / Google drive sync - Easy WiFi way to push / pull ebooks & pdfs on device - Good PDF reading experience Inkpad 2 Kobo Aura One (built in reader)

Help: EReader with Buttons

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 19:16:44 GMT

Looking for an eInk device with page buttons. I would like a decent quality screen and prefer 6.8" or 8" reader if possible. If a larger screen reader with buttons doesn't exist yet, I'm fine with a 6". Does anyone have any ideas? The only one I could find that looked pretty good was this one:

Tough world traveler, 6-8 inch: Quick thoughts?

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 01:32:16 GMT

Looking for off-the-cuff suggestions of where to focus my search: * Tough, does well outside cities and in bad weather * Works well outside US/Canada, esp in Europe, Latin America * 6-8 inch size * Prefer ePub-friendly, but I will consider the right Kindle * Handles random PDFs (I'm happy to use K2pdfopt) Ereaders preferred over tablets; as a last resort, I might get a tablet instead. Thanks for your suggested models to check out! I'm willing to try to buy inside or outside the US. (I live mostly in the US, but a device like this really comes into its own when I'm traveling overseas.)

Better e-reader with bilingual dictionary

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 21:37:02 GMT

Hi everyone I'm thinking about buying a new ereader (i have never had one). The main reason for this is that i want to read some english book in original language and use the internal dictionary of the e-reader to get the translation in my native language (Italian) of the words that i don't know . I have understand that this thing is possibile with the majority of the e-reader in commerce but which one does it best? I'm considering this three e-reader: Kobo glo HD, Tolino vison 3 HD, Kindle paperwhite 3. Some suggestion about it? Thanks for all

New to eBooks!

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 23:35:54 GMT

Howdy All, I'm interested in buying an eBook reader, however I'm quite lost regarding which. I've been reading and searching for some time now and still no conclusion. I'm on a quest to buy a reader that can handle all formats available and in particular books purchased from amazon and pdfs. At the moment I'm considering kindle voyage or Denver EBO 610L. Can anyone share some advice with me? /mistermr

Pixel Qi vs E- ink ? (Monitor)

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 12:54:38 GMT

I'm in need of an E-paper Monitor for my laptop/computer and I'm trying to decide between two technologies. The Pixel Qi Monitor costs around 600 dollars and the E-Ink Monitor (Dasung Paperlike) 1000 bucks which is a lot. The Pixel Qi screen is 10 inches big so it's fairly small but the good thing about it is that you don't have to worry about lag or speed unlike with E-ink. You can do everything, watch videos etc. The E-paper tech here revolves around a grey 'no backlight mode' which is said to be not as good as E-ink as far as readability. I'm not sure if the screen is glare-free, if anybody knows, feel free to clear that up The paperlike screen is 13.3 inches big so that's a plus. Readability is great due to E-ink and I could easily use it druing the day and in the evening with ambient light. Could be potentially laggy but most importantly there's the goddamn price. What do you guys think ? Has anybody worked with Pixel Qi and can say something about it ? Edit : I could go for the Kindle DX (9.7 inches) and use it as a monitor which would save me a lot of money but I'm in doubt about its usefulness There are also Pixel Qi Display panels for 100 bucks, this is just a thought : Is there a possiblity to turn it into an external monitor somehow ?

Which Kobo? Glo, Glo hd, aura or h2o?

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 17:24:59 GMT

So I'm being bought a new reader, it seems :) I don't want a kindle because I borrow library books a lot, my library uses the 3m cloud. I'm in the U.K. Kobo offered me a Glo for 49 gbp because my touch can't be repaired. It doesn't look terrible, but I could get the Glo hd or original aura for 109. I haven't completely ruled out the h2o but I think I might find it too big. Which would people recommend? I'm leaning towards the Glo hd unless there are specific advantages of the aura. Or should I go for the Glo as it's such a good price? I'm sure it would be as good as the Sony PRS 350 I've been using. Or is there anything else? I've loved my Sony readers (have had 505, 350 and 300) and didn't like the kobo touch much, I found the screen muddy compared to the 350 and not as responsive.

Other budget tablets compared to amazon fire?

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 05:26:11 GMT

Are there any other good ones in the same price range as the fire? Just want it for reading (duh) and browsing the webs. I was looking at the galaxy tab e review from this site ( and it stacked up pretty well against the fire. Whats your thoughts?
