Hello Everybody,

for the past 2h I was reading back and forth in this thread and checking out several links mentioned. I was already up to place an order - then I got second thoughts, because of the fast wear out of the pen pins. I would buy the device mainly for my Chinese studies, what means that I would write A LOT, up to 30 pages a day (fully written). Right know, I am using an iPad Pro since July, but I have noticed that the usage of the LED screen for at least 7h a day is seriously effecting my eyes.

I would appreciate any thoughts on appr. how many tips I would need per week based on my writings (let’s say 25 pages a day).

Bad thing is, that the tips are even a bit more expensive in China..

Thank you in advance and please notice, that English is not my mother tongue!

Regards, David

I just bought it, today. Even it's pricey, my eyes are worth it. Hope for some chinese manufactured tips in the future (but market is probably too small for it..).

Excuse me, but where did you buy it from? I thought in Europe it is not being sold.

Hey viceant,

I am currently studying (and therefore living) in China. So I ordered it in China from Japan.
Actually I already ordered the device over 2 month ago from the US (as it was cheaper at that time), but when it finally arrived after around 7 weeks, I returned it immediately (without using / testing it) because it was in a very bad shape. It had scratches on the back, a ditched corner and the frame was loose around the area of the power button). It looked somehow pre-used and for that price I didn’t fancy to keep it AT ALL).

However, I like the white version more anyway and hope it will be in a better condition this time...

Regards, David

Just got it yesterday.

What a gorgeous piece of tech.

Worth every single f***** penny.

Software and setup went flawlessly, tranfer of documents is so easy, specially using wifi. And that screen... bloody hell.

Sony has got me used to the best pieces of tech i have ever had. My best ereaders were and still are Sony's. So well done, so elegant and sturdy. This one does not disappoint at all.
