No, the H2O is the worst design of any ereader and cannot be used without a cover! Kobo is the worst!

Oh Johnny. Why do I have the feeling Jon is not going to agree with you.

I'm not even sure what the joke is. I've been using the H2O without a cover for years, and love it so much that I've bought several of the same for my friends and family who are using them happily. It's a really great device.

But I'm sure I'm missing some in-joke here or something.

JSWolf, Jon, is our resident curmudgeon, as I think he humorously described himself. Apart from this, he is a huge fan of the epub format and of Kobo. What johnnyb said about the H2O is like a red flag to a bull. I may be wrong, but I don't expect that JSWolf will leave the honour of the H2O undefended.

The H20 is a terrible design. They should have made it more ergonomic, maybe made it thinner and lighter by using a smaller battery or making one side thinner than the other so it is easier to hold.

The only reason people buy the H2O is for bragging rights.

We've had this discussion. Thinner/lighter is not always a good thing if it means the battery has to take a hit. Take a look at the Oasis2. It's thinner/lighter at the cost of the battery. Some people have said they don't like the squarish design. Others have said they've like a larger screen Voyage and that one I agree with. I would like to see a larger screen Voyage. It would be a better design. Most Readers are of the rectangle design. So that means that most are used to that design.

When Readers first came out, we didn't have people complaining that they were too big/heavy. There have been a lot of Readers that have come out that are heavier than the H2O. That includes Readers from Amazon & Sony.

I can't believe that I just popped into an interesting-looking thread on display technology and there was Jon again, pissing and moaning about how Kindle sucks, while in the Kindle forum. Goodness this guy needs a hobby. Let's all chip in and get him some basket-weaving materials.

Anyhow, too bad about Liquavista, although the demos never looked like they got the colors all that impressive. Pale, low-contrast, etc.

Blame supermighty for quoting a post that did not need to be quoted from May 2017.

I guess we can take that as a warning to not update a thread with relevant information.

I've got to stick up for Jon here, not that he needs my help. He can be annoyingly pedantic and persistent at times, but Mobileread is much better off having him play an active role as he does. And it's not exactly unknown for him to be right and to make worthwhile contributions even when I don't agree with him. Sometimes I feel compelled to comment. Much of the time, particularly with pro-epub and anti-Amazon posts I just shrug and think that's just Jon being Jon.

@JSWolf. Thanks for your contributions, even if I don't always agree with them.

Are you guys really soo inattentive ?

Liquavista's EWD was the best display technology for the future. It was a high contrast true color device.
Probably all of you have seen an old video and doesn't bothered to search for recent video.

So look at that:

I myself hoped for years that (front-lighted) ewd will once replace desktop monitors. Yes IPS, AMVA, SPVA too, not just TN...
