    These look amazing, but for $689 after you add a pen it’s pretty expensive for a device that does nothing other than take notes (yes I get that it can be used as an e-reader… although it looks like it doesn’t easily interface with most ebook platforms).

    What's the advantage over this and a cheap tablet or even a cheap iPad? From what I read and understood to connect to their unlimited cloud storage you will need to pay $6.99/month subscription (Connect Lite) and accessing your own google drive, dropbox or one drive will cost $9.99/month (Connect). Handwriting conversion is not part of it unless you pay for the premium connect (Connect) as well.

    The only advantage is how eink is more comfortable for the eyes, especially when reading ebooks but I don't see an advantage with their paper like selling point as paper like matte screen protectors are cheaply and readily available for all sorts of tablets.

    Would you not be better off with a normal tablet? More functionality etc.

      I don't own this device but I see the appeal. It's much the same reason people still buy e-readers when tablets exist, and the same reason people still buy dedicated music players when your phone exists: simplicity. It's the ideal that you just pickup the device, start scribbling away or sketching on a PDF or going through your previous notes, without distractions and with multiple-week battery life.

        I agree with your point that it's a standalone device without distractions, horses for courses I guess. As an artistic medium there's tools for that, as note taking or writing on PDF's (apart from a lot of plain content) colour is appreciated and for reading there are better ebook readers.

        It's a good looking device but for that price and to have some functions locked behind a subscription paywall seems a bit unforgivable.

      • Advantage is weight is 400 grams with large-ish canvas at 10 inch

      Well straight away a cheap tablet has a garbage screen, so not even in the same league.

      These are great if you’re doing a lot of reading, my wife far prefers her ebook reader over her iPad Pro for reading.

      I’d order one of these for her, but as a commenter noted above lack of book stores are the issue.

      • No kindle app

        A $500 tablet isn't that cheap, I think most screens in that price range would come with a decent display.

        I agree with your point and the commenter above too, a device made for just reading but this is more touted towards note-taking. Can still buy a Kobo or Kindle and have change left over.

        • $500 isn’t a cheap tablet.

          If you’d said “why not a $500 tablet” that’s a different discussion.

      It does have a Wacom EMR stylus, which I did like more than an Apple Pencil. Though you can get a Samsung tablet with s-pen for that, but those don't have e-ink display.

      I think e-ink displays different from "screen protectors" in that LCDs and OLEDs all emit light and from my understanding e-ink displays don't?

      I think it's a very niche product. I personally use a tablet with a stylus at work and at home and bought a kindle for reading PDFs so I guess I can see some point, but I wouldn't be able to justify that price tag personally. It'd be for people who want to take notes and have the experience very similar to paper and pen, regardless of what the limitations and price tag of those could be.

    • This is much better for writing and drawing on than a tablet. I got one work paid for, it's definitely not worth the money. I was happy using a Rocket book before this

    • +1

      I'll just add that the other big benefit is battery life.

      I seriously considered getting the Remarkable 2 as a note-taking device, because I do think that the epaper screen is the right way to do this. But, in the end I opted for an iPad due to the fact it has better software, in particular GoodNotes. All the extra stuff you get with an iPad is a nice bonus.

      Still, I can see the attraction of the Remarkable 2 and still kind of wish I had one.

    FWIW I got the Boox Note Air 2 instead. Similar price including pen, but it runs on Android, and has a backlight. This gives it a lot more utility for me, although it's not as pretty as the Remarkable

    • Do you think it is a bit of heavy?

    • Similar price? This is $500 and Note Air 2 is more than $750.

  • +2

    remarkable is a one trick pony, get a Kobo Elipsa instead or better Boox or huawei matepad

  • +2

    Is this actually a deal? Pretty sure the price has been $499 for the tablet alone ever since they introduced the subscription model.

  • +4

    Unless I'm mistaken, you have to pay a subscription to access your own google drive and dropbox. This is madness.

  • +2

    Looks nice but wayyyy overpriced for what it is.

    They also want a monthly subscription to be able to save to 3rd party cloud services like Dropbox or Onedrive? That's a deal breaker

  • +1

    I'd recommend at least checking out Supernote if you're into this.

  • +1

    crippled unless you pay a monthly fee. They crippled it about a year ago when they started making everyone pay to just about anything other than writing the notes.
    (eg. if you want to dump all your notes to your own storage you have to pay)

  • this is a perfect example of how sometimes smart people make dumb products. worst part is that they managed to make version 2. We had version 1 for each doctor in our practice, but we realised that it lagged a bit when writing, backing up notes was an extra task, also it was cheaper to get an ipad and a pen to replace a computer and writing pad (Remarkable v1), so we did.That was a good decision as V2 would have cost us double the ipad upgrade (remarkable tablet + pen + cases + cloud subscriptions + licences). After using Remarkable, you realise how dumb and lacking this idea is.

    I've been using my Remarkable (1) since 2018, mainly to take notes. I bought for my master's degree and kept using it every day for work.
    It's amazing! Best investment!

    It's professional, practical, light, beautiful, instant, no distractions, no papers…

    I got the Connect for free because I bought it in 2018. I don't like the subscription system and think this was a mistake.

    After more than 4 years, I am now considering the Supernote as a replacement, mainly because of battery and offline handwriting transcription (Remarkable has it online/Connect only)

    If you want a tablet to browse the internet or use other apps, you don't buy a Remarkable or any e-ink device. The experience of writing on iPad or Surface is awful.

    Writing and reading on e-ink is a completely different experience.

      I've been heavily researching and watching way too many YT videos comparing the latest in e-ink devices and I was finally sold on the Supernote A5X with the Boox Note Air coming in a close second place. But as those reviews were a few months old, the Note Air 2 Plus has since been released… and I'm now back to trying to work out which of the two I want to lay the cash down on smh
