Oooh merci. Je crois que je vais m'abstenir vu qu'il y a pas de dictionnaire en anglais. N'ayant pas la carte Virgin à 30 euros, cela me revient presqu'au prix d'un Sony PRS-T1 sans la technologie HSIS bien évidemment mais avec Android !

Alors, j'ai pour toi deux infos :
- De source sure, je tiens que des dictionnaires étrangers sont prévus
- Calibre va (dans sa prochaine version, prévue pour la fin de la semaine) gérer l'Odyssey.
Après, tout est question de choix...

J-C Garnier reported usb issues too, which is a huge problem imo.
Can you be more precise about it? Does it at least charge?

Yes, charging works. It's copying books that's a problem. Can be bypassed by using an Sd card, but annoying nonetheless. Bookeen said they are working on an update to fix that. But, no ETA.

so it's a software problem?

edit.
i'm reading the comments, it's written there. The nice thing is that the Bookeen Team looks to be reading user blogs too

So what's the improvent on the Opus as far as book reading/managing goes?
It weighs more, one of the page turn buttons is not reliable, the USB connection is erratic for many and non-existent for the reviewer, the reader becomes very slow if you load it with many books (so does the Opus)... It may be quicker to refresh, and the ink sharper? But that's it, basically?
If this is the case, frankly I don't see why I should change.

There has been an update to fix the USB connection. It should also have better contrast.

It's faster, it"s tactile, larger screen. It's some improvement from my point of view.

But then, if you're happy with your opus and don't feel the need to change, don't change.

Yes, it's "some" improvement, but it comes with a lot of bugs, from what I read. The Opus has its bugs (tends to freeze if you let the battery drop lower than 70%), but otherwise works fine.
I would welcome a bigger screen, as my eyesight is not good so I need to use larger fonts and have to change pages often. That's the reason I was looking at the Odyssey. But if I am to be exasperated and lose my peace of mind, no thanks.

The usb bug that is pretty much fixed, and less anoying than the opus that was unable to read for half an hour before crashing.

The USB bug has been fixed today (in 1481 version). Please note however that if you use Calibre, the current version does not recognize it anymore. I'll report it to Calibre so that they can correct the "Odyssey" driver.

This is not my experience. I'm reading for hours, believe me!
Yes, the opus tends to crash if you leave the battery below 60%. Once they gave me that tip, it never crashed again.

By the way, I just bought a second opus as a Christmas gift to my father, since the price is now halved, at 119 euros!
