Thanks for that video. Goodereader's reviews are often confused but they do pack in a lot of information, even though it's often obvious they don't really understand it all.

This one in particular was useful, giving a good look through the device. I really like the look of the interface. It's simpler than the Kindle/Nook/Kobo interfaces and more straightforward and with nice large text. If it ever gets an English dictionary I might find it tempting.

It's not much to go on, but given that it's called Nolim in France and Saga elsewhere and it was a Nolim they reviewed, I'm hoping that explains the French only dictionary. It is a cute, unique looking reader. Maybe if I see them going cheap on eBay I'd order one..

I'd hope the buttons are reversible in settings, even if it would make the labels on the buttons incorrect.

I don't care much about the buttons as long as I can swipe to turn pages. I never used the button thingies on my Voyage.

US only, but the new Nook has 300 dpi and 8 GB storage for $120.

I think everyone should be glad that there's still some vitality in the eink reader market. We all benefit in the long run.
Minor nit. The Nook Glowlight 3 has 8GB of total storage. The sad part is that only 0.95GB is available for sideloaded content. Or looking at my collection and calculating average size, less 400 ebooks. Admittedly I do have quite a few cooking/recipe ebooks and biographies such as 99: Stories of the Game which are much larger. If I wanted to place The Prophets of Smoked Meat, America—Farm to Table and 99: Stories of the Game on a Glowlight 3, that would leave 300MB for other books. BTW, these are not the 3 largest ebooks but rather 3 I have been reading recently.

I know a few Canadians who purchased a Nook. Most ended up regretting the choice when they "enjoyed" B&N's treatment of them as enemy aliens. Does Bookeen offer the same treatment to their foreign purchasers?

Bookeen offer the same level of support to everyone: zero. (At least that was the case when I gave up on them due to the horrendous bugs in the Opus. Perhaps someone with more recent experience can comment on whether or not their support has improved.)

Nope. Always had good good support from bookeen. Starting with the Gen3. But I'm in France. Not sure about support from the US.

And yeah, I remember issues with the opus too. They changed the battery if I remember right.

Are these optimised? I recently optimised all my books, including PDFs, and saved hundreds of MBs.

Anyway, I'm down for a yellow SAGA. My favourite colour!

Nothing to do with the battery - it was the firmware that was the issue. The device would hang up at least once every half hour of reading, and lacked even the most basic features: no search, no bookmarking, no dictionary. There were endless promises of new firmware to fix the issues, but they never materialised. That's what caused me to abandon Bookeen.
