Another Video Review of the Onyx Boox Max 2

Onyx Boox Max 2

The Onyx Boox Max 2 recently went up for pre-order, and now another (lengthy) video review has turned up on YouTube.

The Max 2 is a 13.3-inch E Ink ereader that doubles as a secondary monitor thanks to the addition of an HDMI port. The device runs Android 6.0 and features a dual-touch touchscreen (Wacom and capacitive).

It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with 32GB of storage space, 2GB of RAM, and a quad-core processor.

The Max 2 support PDFs, ePubs, and a variety of other formats. Onyx’s PDF app is a lot more advanced than what most other E Ink devices offer so combine that with the large screen and it’s one of the better PDF options out there.

The Max 2 is expected to start shipping at the end of the month from eReader Store. It’s priced at €671.34 with free shipping.

Keep in mind the video was put together by the reseller for the Onyx Boox Max so it’s unlikely to highlight the negative aspects.

It’s interesting how the software has been updated to Android 6.0 but everything seems to be pretty much the same as it with Android 4.0 like on the Onyx N96 that I recently reviewed.

  1. Good review. Complete.

  2. Or, for $100 more, you could just buy a 12.9″ ipad pro.

    • An iPad That you can’t read in bright day light.
      I bought this, this morning, to replace carrying around a rear truck seat of blue prints and 3 inch thick specifications books, for large high tech constructions projects I run.
      This e reader will allow me to carry this on job sites, and at meetings, with out having to literally carry 50 pounds of plans and documents. It’s the perfect answer, to my needs the the future of engineering documentation and paper work.
      Everyone we meet on site, looks like we are moving, with all the docs.
      This is the answer to my dreams.
      Real paper is dead.

  3. The reviewer is the guy who represents the company that sells Booxes in Germany.

  4. The HDMI monitor function is not tested in the review.
