Hi Mike,

I had a 6 inch Kindle (June 2011) before I got myself an M92.

M92: if it weren't for Booxtor's work as an interface between us and Onyx, then I would have sent the M92 straight back. The software is rather buggy and in many ways not intuitive. And there is no manual explaining it in enough detail. It is all being worked on, though.

Figuratively speaking the M92's software has rough edges and splinters all over the place and you have to learn using it. With (and I cannot mention him often enough) Booxtor consolidating all user feedback into change and bug fix requests to Onyx, the M92 is improving, though.

If you want to read PDFs, then the M92 can be a big improvement. But PLEASE DO expect at least a few days of experimenting and frustration until it starts feeling like a natural tool for you.

Cheers,
J.
