ONYX BOOX NOTE AIR 2 + Smart Protective Case + FREE SHIPPING (EU)
My Note Air 2 arrived on November 11. Considering that it left eReader Store on the 9th and arrived here in the USA on the 11th, that alone is impressive. Kudos to eReader Store for shipping promptly and to UPS for prompt delivery! The device was well-packed and arrived in excellent condition.

I have owned a number of eInk devices before. I still have an Onyx Boox Nova 2, which has served me well. I bought the Note Air 2 for its larger screen size (to make reading pdfs easier) and its greater storage capacity (64GB). I hoped that I would fine that the Note Air 2 is not too heavy for extended reading times. The writing function is not as important to me, though it is very useful. The ability to install third party Android apps - mainly apps that focus on reading - was also important to me. That's where I'm coming from in ordering this device and writing this review.

In the packaging, Onyx appears to have taken cues from Apple - which is not a bad thing. As I open the box and pull things out, the packaging itself suggests that this is a quality device. The quick start guide is too brief, but there is a manual pre-installed on the device.

The Note Air 2 feels like a well-built, high-quality device. It boots up reasonably quickly. The front light can be easily adjusted to provide the right blend of "warm" and "cool" to suit your taste. The light seems even. Contrast with the light on is very good. Google Play requires a few steps to set up, but this is not complicated. The Note Air 2 feels heavier than the Nova 2 (of course) but it isn't as heavy as one might suppose. The weight does not present a problem for reading. Indeed, a book of this size would weigh more!

Onyx has improved their NeoReader app steadily over the last few years. This work has paid off. It does an excellent job with pdfs. It is equally good with ePubs and nearly as good with azw3's and mobi's. Some people may still prefer a third party reader app, but the NeoReader does quite well.

This is my first eInk device with speakers. If you use them for music, you will not mistake them for Bose - but, for audiobooks, they do a good job.

The pen/stylus feels comfortable to hold. The writing experience does feel similar to paper. I see very little lag. I have not tried third party apps like OneNote yet.

Most third party apps work as expected. I have tried the Kindle and Nook apps, as well as Instapaper and Scribd. Surprisingly, my Verbum Bible study app did not work so well, but I found a way to have it work properly. If the page turning in any app seems slow, you can fine tune this (and other features) in the Optimization window. You can adjust page refresh to suit your tastes.

Battery life appears to be on a par with my Nova. Turning off WiFi and Bluetooth when not needed helps. Remember that when you see claims that a Kindle (for example) will last for weeks, that estimate is based on a half hour of reading per day and WiFi off. Use the Note Air 2 similarly and your results won't be far off.

The eReader Store includes a protective cover with the Note Air 2. It fits well, and will put the device to sleep when closed and wake it up when opened. It looks and feels like a good quality cover.

The only component that could stand a quality improvement is the USB-C cable. It's okay, but not as reliable as a good quality cable you can get from any number of sources.

Overall, I am very pleased with this device and can recommend it without hesitation. As long as you know what an eInk device is all about, you'll find this one to be one of the best.

ONYX BOOX NOTE AIR 2 + Smart Protective Case + FREE SHIPPING (EU)
I've just updated myself from Note 2 to Note Air 2, and I can say the improvement, especially in note-taking, surprised me! The new pen and rough screen layer added to the device has made the writing experience with Note Air 2 as close as possible to writing on paper. The only drawback is that Note Air 2, unlike Note 2, does not have any fingerprint sensor. However, I don't think that's a vital capability in an E-reader. Android 11 and the new processor also have improved the performance significantly.

I decided to upgrade from my old Kindle to Onyx Note 3 and it was the best choice ever. This is a whole new experience of ereader, it can easily replace paper and pencil for writing as well as paper books for reading.

Absolutely amazing!! I have it for almost a month now, I am using it basically to read and less for notetaking, at least for now. Amazing design, outstanding functionalities. I read literature mostly on Kindle app and tech books mainly in pdf forms in the system's Neo Reader. You can add notes, draw anything on the pdf, and of course, it saves your progress in any document that you read. I charged it only once till now (almost a month). It is great for my personal things as for my work on studying tech books or documents for my work (Software Engineer). I spend all day in front of a screen for my work and I wanted to read without hurt my eyes and not carrying around books. With Note Air, I can read anywhere at any time, anything I want!! I am still learning its functionalities and capabilities so I will come up with a new review or edit this one!! It worth its money and it is great. The writing on taking notes is great too and both reading and writing are very similar doing them on paper.

Ordered Monday night, received Wednesday lunch time!
Content was safely protected, and originally sealed.
First boot up to set overall configuration, battery was 99 %.
Seemed to be produced couple of weeks at much.
Very recommendable distributor in Europe, hope to extend a little bit more the portfolio with more accessories.

Das Note Air ist sehr viel schneller als das Note 2, das betrifft zoomen und Handschriften. Es ist 40 gr. schwerer, liegt aber wegen der Form gut in der Hand und ermöglicht tatsächlich das Notieren unter vollem Zugriff auf die Funktionsleiste. Durch die automatische Rotation kann man bei größeren PDF ein wenig an Größe des Ausschnitts gewinnen, etwa bei Überschriften von Zeitungs-PDF etc. - die Umstellung erfolgt schnell und reibungslos! Das Gerät kommt mit der neuen Firmware 3.0, die viele Verbesserungen aufweist. Der Stift ist ein kleines Manko, je nach Geschmack und Gewichtung: das Schreiben mit der nun etwas spitzeren Spitze geht sehr gut auf dem Glasdisplay, mehr Reibungswiderstand hat der alte Stift geboten, der auch noch die Radiergummifunktion hatte. Dafür ist der neue Stift nun magnetisch und haftet - einigermaßen zumindest - an der Seite des Geräts. Mehr Halt hat er, wenn man ihn links auf den Rahmen packt - aber da will man das Gerät ja eigentlich halten, das ist Sinn und Zweck des Designs.
Der Speicher und die Batterie sollten ausreichen, wenn man nicht auf Weltreise durch Gegenden ohne Strom geht - wer hier mehr mehr Leistung will, muss das Note 2 oder 3 heranziehen.
Die Hülle: soweit ich das gesehen habe, ist diese an das Gerät mit Klebestreifen anzubringen, wodurch man dann auf diese Kombi festgelegt ist, das Gerät nicht schnell rein. und rauspacken kann - dazu hätte Onyx Magneten verwenden müssen, wie etwa das Remarkable mit entsprechender Hülle. Das mag aber ein kleineres Problem sein. Wer das Gerät "nackt" in der Hand halten will (dazu ist es ja eigentlich gemacht!), muss sich hier etwas ausdenken. Die Anbringung des Stifts erfolgt dann in einem Stofftäschschen, all das habe ich nicht ausprobiert... auch ob ein Laden in der Hülle geht (sollte eigentlich selbstverständlich sein) hat sich mir nicht auf Anhieb erschlossen.
In der Summe für das Geld ein sehr gutes, schnelles Gerät mit dem man glücklich wird - wenn man kleinere Schönheitsfehler ignoriert!
Die Performance ist jedenfalls das Beste, was ich bisher in dem Bereich ausprobieren konnte!

I simply love the note air. It has so many "small details" covered that makes me think that the constant feedback and exprience that boox has gotten over the years, is finally showing its results. I had previously used the Note S, so this was a big upgrade. And I can say that now I love the navigation ball, the calendar memos, the new screen savers, the monthly records of the notes/readings. The browser is now extremely useful. The writing experience is nice, but from time to time it might feel a bit laggy, but highly usable.

Maybe the only thing that I don't like with this kit, is the free cover, as it has to be "glued" to the note air, but well, it was free :P, so no complaints.
