Fair enough. I’ve never used one, so I have no idea what I might be missing.

I used Logos starting in 2014. I think I got my first Kindle in 2016 or so (e-ink e-reader, a paper white). Since then, I understood what the hype was. If Faithlife ever made their own brand ereader that simply allowed you to read your library and make simple highlights (and no other feature) I'd be the first to sign up.

Thanks John for reaching out! I’m impressed they did that for you!

The scrolling seems a bit sluggish, and honestly gives me some pause about it. However maybe if turning page turns on instead of scrolling it would be just fine.

It’s been a while, but I’m probably gonna go with the onyx boox poke 2. Does anyone know if there’s a reputable distributor for the US? I can find several foreign ones, but I’m concerned about shipping troubles and even whether I’d actually get the product. I did find that www.stacksocial.com has it And is based in the US. But does anyone know if it’s a reputable site? I’ve never heard of it. Or has anyone received had good dealings with onyx from different sellers?

thanks all!

I believe you can find a handful of vendors who sell the Poke2 on eBay. I ordered mine directly from the Onyx store but still waiting for DHL to ship it. I believe delays are due to COVID shipping priorities taking precedence, but definitely a delay.

Other Onyx products can be purchased on their Amazon store. I tried the Nova Pro. Loved it but I don't need the pen function so decided to go with the Poke2. I'll do a review when I get it!

Ended up shelling out more money and got the nova 2, which I was able to purchase on amazon instead. Received it yesterday and I’m absolutely loving it! Now I’m wishing they made phones and computers that have e-ink screens!

Also enjoying my Poke 2. I found it helps to turn off things like swipe to highlight and the automatic word lookup features, but otherwise I’m pretty happy with it for reading purposes.

I installed Nova Launcher from the play store and use that as my home screen. Since I really just use Logos and Kindle on there it cleans up the interface a lot. I can still get to the Onyx Launcher if I need to update firmware (appears you have to do it from there) but I really appreciate the simplified interface.
