Onyx Boox i62HD. Software updates.
#401  amdreluiz 04-19-2014, 09:16 AM
I don't know if this is the right place to ask. I was really considering to buy a Boox i62HD. I have a sony-T1, and I use it a lot. I'd like to keep small because I travel a lot. But it's also very important for me to save my notes and to be able to export, merge into a new file, (and also to be able to handwrite and save on pdf would be great). Moreover, I'd love to be able to use dictionaries on stardict format.
So I ask, if someone could please help me, is it not a good deal anymore to buy an i62HD? Would I have these functions working properly? If not, can anyone point me another possible reader?
Thanks a lot!

Buy a kobo.

Long answer: i62 has some annoying bugs which wont be fixed. Sometimes it's not able to merge pdf annotation, sometimes dictionary search is useless (pdf produced by latex)... the hardware is cheap (100€) but has a good quality, I suppose it's one of the best. Software is the real problem. I can read epub and pdf and djvu without any *serious* problem, of course, but lacks of advanced features in modern ereader. Annotations: too many bugs, both during annotating and while exporting. Handwrite: too small screen. This section of the forum is full of problems. In my mind the kobo is the best (but still in my opinion, buy books in your small digital reseller - drm free - not on kobo site).

the similar section for kobo is full of problems too, kobo is known for their buggy firmware, dont buy kobo.

the nature and motivation of this theads is, beside explain complex functions, mainly to mention bugs . it doesnt make sense in those kind of threads to talk about how happy is someone with his device.

Thank you for the answer. At least I have some more information on this device to reconsider buying it. But one last question. I've been waiting too for the Onyx T68, with android. That is the reason why I didn't buy any yet. Do you guys think it will offer the same functions (but working properly) as with linux? (saving notes, use of stardict etc)
Would it be worth waiting a little bit more? thanks in advance.

Point is that, so far, no other company, being small or big, have ebook reader with at least 9.7 inches screen still on the market.
Yo still have Kindle DXG. Not the best tool but at least works fine:
