  • I Love this Device
    Reviewed by Del - June 30, 2021

    I was looking for something to take research notes with, and keep my notes organized in one place. I needed something light and durable. I already used my Kobo Forma daily, and love the ability to carry my books with me. My experience with the kobo stylus has been perfect, it is responsive and very accurate. You have an option to turn your handwriting into type, and that works very well. I love my Kobo Elipsa!!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    I have been a Kobo Ereader fan. This will be my fourth Kobo Ereader. I got attracted to Elipsa after watching a lot of YouTube reviews from different people. Pros I am able to write notes, underline, highlight, and make comments while reading. The size 10.3” is a great advantage. It helps me to read faster. I am able to organize my thoughts in writing using the notes facility. Organizing my library is made a little bit easier. It could be used as a work tool. Cons The Kobo Elipsa is too heavy with the cover. This makes it not portable like other Ereaders I had before. The missing warm light for night reading is a huge minus for me. The response of the pen while writing is not very good. Palm rejection while writing is missing.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Disappointing
    Reviewed by chrisrw - June 29, 2021

    I'm somebody who probably would have purchased a Remarkable long ago had it come with a front light. Yes, I know the light hampers writing quality to a degree but it'd be worth the trade off in terms of reading functionality. I have had a few Kobo devices over the years and really love my Aura One. Not a writing device, though, and it doesn't handle PDF files well at all. I was really excited to learn of the Elipsa! On paper, it was checking all the boxes for me and came in at a really terrific price when compared with the competition. I received it yesterday and it's already boxed up for a return. It seems well built... feels great in the hand. Stylus also seemed to be of decent quality. The fact that it's bundled with a (mediocre and kind of weird) folio and stylus definitely gets it points for value. But... there are some significant problems and caveats. -writing latency is BAD. Much worse than it needs to be given the excellent hardware. The software here does not at all maximize the potential of the E-ink display. This will almost certainly get fixed via updates but it's embarrassingly bad out of the box. -Lack of custom templates (seriously; what gives? You get 2 to choose from). -You can only write on Kobo store purchased ePubs (mind boggling). -The advanced notebook was seriously glitchy for me. I've watched reviews where it functioned beautifully for others... not for me. -no amber lighting (this is livable; the 'dark mode' is something I wish my Aura One had and makes this a minor issue) -general glitches... it was slow moving in some scenarios. I created a 'therapy note' PDF file and wanted to see if I could mark it up. This was a single page PDF and, though I could see it in the thumbnail preview, it would only open as a blank page (and seemed to nearly freeze while doing so). Overall... really disappointed. I'm in this "in for a penny in for a pound" situation now and am likely going to buy an Onyx Boox Note Air or even go all in on a Lumi Max. If Kobo releases a version 2 I'll give them another shot (I like the company) but this is a fail for now.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
