Lightbulb Onyx Boox Note Air+

Hi all there!

I plan to buy a Onyx Boox Note Air+ for near 400$ with cover and want advise from users using that one.

Is it quiet reader for the price ?

I have no idea, but have you carefully compared it to the Note 3?

I'm happy with my Poke 3 (6", no stylus, Android 10) and it seems Onyx tries to make things consistent across models.

Big displays = big money.

Yes, I have a Boox Note Air and use it as a notepad with a keyboard and stylus.

It is excellent as a reading device - also as an Android EInk tablet; and excellent as a note-taking device.
But to comment in pdf (sheet music, scores) I use my Likebook Alita because it has 512 GB of memory thanks to the SD card.

512 GB?
Do any of the Onyx Boox have SD cards?
The recent B&N Glows don't have SD cards, so I had to solder them in.

Yes, all Likebook devices (from Android 6) with the exception of the P10 have an SD card connection, and the file system allows them to be NTFS when used as a mobile device.
USB-OTG can also use NTFS and I also used a 4 TB Seagate on my Likebook devices.

That is one of the reasons why I prefer Likebook devices in many areas of application.

No.
Boox devices can only use FAT32 via USB-OTG (I haven't found anything else).

From Boox, apart from the Note Air, I only have Poke (Pro, 2, 3)

In my opinion, Boox Note Air is designed for landscape format - it is therefore ideally suited with a Bluetooth keyboard and pen (for cursor positioning) as an (Android) notebook outdoors, in the sun, ... - because of the only 32 GB it sometimes has to be connected to the workstation for data synchronization.

I just checked. I have lots of tech documents and books but it's only ~2 GB.
It reminds me of my first "information holding device", a Palm III: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_III
That had 2 MB of RAM. Still, it held all the lyrics/chords of the songs that I played.
Note: The Palm III originally sold for $400, so I guess a Note Air is a better value now!

I think you'll find that everybody has different storage needs.
32 GB (like the Note Air) is a whole lot of storage for most people.

I don't think 32 GB of space is a book problem - I can get by with it on the "Reader".
For me it's sheet music that takes up so much space; Eg the score of Verdi's "Forza del Destino" with 620 MB - and I have around 500 such huge files.
Or Kiwix Wikipedia with around 40 GB - I can't do that on any of my Boox devices, no problem on the Likebooks.

Boyue-Likebook.
You have to be quick and try to get a piece of the old Notes line.
The P10 has no SD extension and according to tests I have read it is also weak in the pen area.
My 10.3 inch favorite is the Likebook Alita: Android 8.1, 10.3 Wacom, 4/32 GB, 8 core 1.5 GHz, SD in a tray.
Pretty much the last few pieces are here.
