It was expected to be released in March. A friend contacted the store in Poland she bought from and was told it will take another three weeks at the least.

I tried using the IR button the last few days and I like it so far, being right handed. Only it is too easy to accidentally change the font size, wish there was a way to lock the font size.

The "merge sketch" feature could be useful. I hope they implement it in firmware 1.7.

a little practice and ive managed not to do that any more. but it was annoying at first.

i would like the merge sketch to work and for it to use less power when sleeping and for it to not loose my page when sleeping.

I miss the standby feature, takes too long to start up. The problem with battery life was present in the firmware dated August 18. I heard that it is still present in the test firmware version 1.7 and they are trying to fix it.

It remembers the page if you allow it to auto-shutdown, even if the book is on the SD card. I have set it to shutdown after 30 mins of inactivity. It does not work with a manual shutdown.

I feel this functions almost like sleep, except it takes longer to start up.

So one month later, we still don't have any new firmware for the M90, do we? I've seen there are newer versions for the M92, but it seems like Onyx is just dumping anyone who supported them by buying the M90 early after release. Good move. I'm certainly not recommending them to anyone in the future.

Looks like that move paid off. But I wonder about the quality of the hardware. If it is not dead pixels, it is something else.

The IR-sensor is another problem. But to me, the main problem is the unstable firmware, which is solvable but unsolved.

I have not had problems with the IR button, no more random pageturns. I was talking about the M92 having hardware problems. I do not remember reading about such problems with the M90. But then, they did not sell many M90s.

If you mean the "dead pixels" issue - it was discovered by just a couple of devices and we have replaced those devices. But during inspecting them some days later what a surprise - the problem was gone. We could not discover no one sole "dead" pixel! I am pretty sure it was because of cold transport - the eink just needed some time to be "fluid" again...

"Back" and "Menu" capacitive buttons inoperable!

Booxtor, have you heard of a fault in which the "back" and "menu" capacitive buttons on the M90 just suddenly cease registering contacts? I am extremely frustrated by Onyxboox.com (the USA reseller).

I had a similar issue with the capacitive buttons. They were working fine one night and next day they simply wouldn't respond anymore. Then, they began getting triggered randomly, making reading any books really complicated.

This issue arose during my holidays in Taiwan and persisted until I returned to Australia. I'm guessing the problem is temperature related: As I returned from winter to summer the buttons worked properly again.

i suspect it would be humidity rather than temperature. i have not experienced it however here near Protland Oregon where it is quite wet but actually not very high humidity most of the time
