Best old e-reader with cool features for a low price?

Hi!
I'm looking to buy a nice reader that has some interesting features.
I already have a kindle scribe and PW5, but I'm looking for something I can also use KOReader with, so I can use it without any problems with formats or books with high quality images.

So, does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks.

A Kobo. Most Kobo models, except possibly the earliest, use the same software and have the same features. It's easy to install KOReader on a Kobo, plus you can do a ton of customizations to the native reader too.

Hello! Same question. What model of Kobo do you reccomend to buy used? Is there a sweet spot between newer hardware features and good used prices from older generations?

(I usually read on my Surface, I'm very new to ereaders )

I have no idea on the used Kobo market. The problem is that the good devices that are not currently being sold are rather old and could have rather poor batteries. However, if you can find a used Libra 2, that may be OK.
