Product Description

The best e-reader for PDF For the most demanding user that works with A4 sized documents, PDFs and has the need to interact with the content (notes, annotations, highlighting), the ICARUS Reader eXceL is unmatched. The 9.7" E-Ink PEARL touch screen has great contrast and swiftly responds to any command . With 1200 x 825 pixels it has much more detail than most e-readers (800 x 600). With the stylus you can create notes and highlight text. And with Wi-Fi connectivity you can wirelessly browse the web and access content on the go. The Icarus eXceLis perfect for professional environments or education, where interactivity is essential. Read A4-sized documents Reading A4 sized documents or large PDF files on a contemporary 6" e-reader can be a frustrating experience. On such devices documents that make extensive use of graphs and tables require panning and zooming which makes the documents difficult to read. The eXceL, with its strong PDF support and 9.7" screen show A4 documents as they are meant. They can be shown on one screen and are perfectly readable. The 1200 x 825 resolution screen makes graphics look stunning. Making notes using the WACOM stylus is precise and adds a whole new dimension to your e-reader. Create, save and export notes To support a paperless office environment or simply because you want to add content to your documents, you can make notes in your documents. Using either a virtual keyboard or the stylus you can add (handwritten) notes to your ePub or PDF files. Notes can be saved and exported, so you can read your notes also on any other device. Great PDF support PDF support is strong on all ICARUS e-readers, but on the eXceL it is fantastic. Many options for zooming and panning, great ReFlow, adjustable font size and more make the eXceL the best e-reader for reading PDF out there. Period.

I should note that the charger is a USB cable with a plug adapter, but the adapter is for European outlets.

I haven't had this Icarus Excel ereader for long enough to really put it through its paces, but so far I like it a lot. I got it primarily for reading--and taking handwritten notes on--pdf files, and it works well. Navigation could be a little easier and it would be really nice to be able to jump between several open documents, but it seems to serve its main purpose well.

I should note that the charger is a USB cable with a plug adapter, but the adapter is for European outlets. That's fine for me, since I have plenty of USB adapters for US outlets, but it is an interesting oddity.

Great for PDFs, perfect for a student. However, it is not so easy to jump around quickly within a text.

Useful, big enough to read pdf's of books that have never been made into e-books - this was the primary reason and it serves it well. I found it too slow to use it to annotate anything, perhaps future iterations will be more responsive. Battery is really weak, lasts much less than a week. And they send me a European plug, despite the fact that it was shipped here, to the US. That's really lack of consideration from their side, and I have to charge it via laptop, as if there was no charger at all. A bit overpriced, with a hindsight I think I'd rather go for the $100 cheaper Kindle DX, which has similarly big screen, and doesn't have what you don't use anyway - i.e. the touchscreen.

PROS: large screen, high resolution, zooming and annotation features. CONS: weight. ** ICARUS is rebranded from Onyx M92. The M92 review: the toolbar can be configured with 'Zooming Icons' which allows one tap access to 4 main functions (1.whole page, 2.full width, 3.full height, 4.rectangle select). Icon 1 and 4 are used frequently in landscape mode. Pressing the dedicated menu button gives plenty more rendering options. Text re-flow is possible. So far M92 ($330) is the best eReader for professionals as of writing (January 2014). Sony 13.3 is not available yet and price estimates of $1000. ONYX vs ICARUS: M92 offers a somewhat functional web browser. ICARUS has web browser? (see other reviewer). A few other 9 inch eReaders also exist but they just do no get these two basic things right: 1.zooming and 2.annotation
