      thanks bro, looking good

      >isn't DRM pozzed
      All of them allow you to load pirated ebooks. You can literally just email them to the device, though Kindles will convert them to a native format (automatically) which runs the risk of breaking some formatting, so for that reason I recommend a kobo.
      >Hackable
      What "hacking" could you possibly want to do on an e-reader? It's for reading books. Just read, homosexual.

      I dunno anon. I guess it's just a IQfytard in me. I always try to get shell or root on different devices I own. I don't know why I am like that. I guess god built me that way.
      >kobo
      thanks

        Get any cheap kobo (avoid the new color ones, get one of the older ones) and put koreader on it. It's an easy process and with koreader you can do lots of cool stuff like ssh to your reader over wifi.

          why?

            The color is achieved with a filter array on top of the panel. The result is that a lot of light is filtered and the display becomes a lot darker than the basic panel.
            You need to use the front light a lot more often. Completely turning it off mainly works in bright daylight conditions.
            Color content also tends to have more ghosting compared to b&w since they use more greys. We'll have to see how well Kobo handles that.
            They only announced 6" and 7" color models for now, which begs the question what color content you want to read in that size.

    Supernote X2 is recommendable for allowing the user to replace parts like battery or motherboard.

    Are e-ink readers at the point where they can do pdfs without issue on non expensive models?

    • 2 months ago

      It depends on what you consider expensive. You can get 10" readers for a bit over $300 and have a ton of options for $500.

        Which of those do pdfs well?

          I think all of the 10" models work well with pdf. Boox tends to have the most exhaustive options in the default reader in addition to allowing you to install other Android readers.

    lol "overpriced trash" like you've ever even seen one in real life.

    I have one running debian and it's basically perfect; the only flaw is they're no longer for sale so I can't replace it if it breaks

      Supernote is the only one who has software intended for drawing. Everyone else just has note taking applications.

    Is there anything with an extremely high PPI? All the EBooks I've tried had a little bit of a blur to them.. even the newest amazons/kobos

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      300ppi is the highest you currently get and almost universally adopted. Some cheap models use lower 212 ppi and the larger 10" and 13" panels used to be limited as well.
      Blur can come from other factors like screen surfaces.

        Any you recommend? The closest to no blur I've seen is the Boox but I don't want to china server in my house

    Are you guys excited for Kobo Libra Colour? Can't wait to ditch my Paperwhite 5.

      I don't see the appeal of 7" color readers. Epubs don't really benefit from color and for pdf and comics, 7" is too small. 10" and 13" makes a lot more sense with that.

    The current meta is digging out your old 2013 Nexus 7 from whatever dresser drawer you have it in, shoving one of these sd card adapters into the port and using Readera for all your PDF and EPUB books
