Onyx is a Chinese company specialized in the ebook-reader. Until a few years ago, his name was little known in the industry for distributing exclusively in China and its products had little appeal to the western market. Boox with Max, we have also seen live, the company has managed to emerge exploiting the interest in large-format e-reader, and since then its popularity has grown. The latest model, however, is a disappointment, and now we will explain why.
Onyx Boox C67 is equipped with a 6-inch e-Ink display card, so the size of the ebook-reader competitors using an e-Ink Pearl panel, but with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. The only real drawback is the lack of touch, which thus require the user to use the D-Pad to navigate the menus and physical buttons to turn the page. Inside is a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, which should be signed Freescale, with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory expandable with a microSD card slot. On board there is also a headphone jack, useful for listening to audio books and music.
Onyx Boox C67
Although the price of Onyx Boox C67 is very tempting, just under 70 Euros, is not an ebook-reader that we feel to recommend. In addition to lacking a dedicated EPD controller, which then affects the speed of the turn-page, this device is not Adobe Certified (so there may be problems with the PDF), and not even integrates the WiFi module. I mean, why buy it if at the same price (or slightly more), we would have a more complete ebook-reader?
This time Onyx will not hit our parts, but probably was not even in his plans because Boox C67 will be on sale exclusively on the Chinese market.
