I was genuinely surprised by how good it felt to draw on the Remarkable 2. I didn't expect much from the Eink display compared to drawing on many of the tablets I'm used to using but this is genuinely great experience but it might still not be right for you.

    I don't sketch, I don't draw. I saw the ad on Instagram between my stories and thought it was kind of cool. I've been seriously thinking and rethinking how can I take better notes for my lectures and this seemed to be great but when I saw the price (at least in Australia) is too much. It's almost 1300% more expensive than a paper notebook.

    As a business owner and hobbyist I found I had 4-6 notepads that I kept losing track of. I bought another brand e-ink tablet that uses Android 10 as the OS and can sync with my Note 20 ultra. THAT is useful. That paired with all the regular android apps like Microsoft office and the daily organizer and sketching abilities paired with my note 20 ultra is like a portable office. The Remarkable is Linux based and really limited because of that. No apps.....

    Great review! I have it down between this and the Supernote A5X. I need to cut down on screen time because of photosensitivity related to epilepsy. I am an artist and a graphic designer who wants to decrease backlit screen time and design and move toward more toward art making. I’m kind of intrigued by the idea of using it as a sketchbook to keep my drawing skills honed, blind contour practice, map out compositions, quick ideas etc., etc. Also running out of sketchbook space. I do love writing AND my kobo is about to die... so seemed like a good time to try!

But there is most likley an app for that

    One of the best things about this tablet is actually the fact that it does have an e-ink screen. My eyes used to get so tired when I had to stare at LCD screens all the time, this device is where all of my ideas start now. I spend a lot of time on it just coming up with ideas.Another great bonus is that because it doesn’t have all the extra software that you can load on an iPad or android tablet, there are no distractions. No email dings, no instant messenger’s, no temptation to hop on the Internet and get lost looking at websites reading Twitter. Where it really shines is in allowing you to be focused and productive.

    The price is a bait and switch. The site says it’s $399, but that’s without a marker and the whole point of it is writing on the surface of it. It’s really 499 with a pen that can write and erase.

    For someone who loves to DM D&D games this looks amazing. Great way to take my dm notes on and plan out various game aspects and even draw simple maps and such in the midst of my notes. I can also upload the character sheet PDF's to keep track of my characters and NPCs just as I would with paper and pencil character sheets. No more hauling multiple notebooks and worrying about damaging paper sheets. This will do exactly as I need it to do!

    I tried mine for a week and returned it -- to be upfront, I use Notability on my iPad with Apple Pencil and it is so much better for what I use it for -- but most importantly, I thought I might enjoy this for journaling and for my day planner -- well, boy was that wrong! The Day Planner I imported that I use was 215 pages of PDF -- it is impossible to bookmark any pages with the RM2 so the really really slow scrolling through the planner made it unusable. I LOVE the paper feel, but that was about it. It is pretty good for just keeping a diary -- but again, going back to find anything without being able to bookmark individual pages made it a chore and really hard to use. It would be great for someone who just keeps a lot of one or two page notes -- say keeping notes in a meeting --- but therein also lies the rub -- when I go to a meeting, I not only need to take notes, but I need to be able to access emails, look up contacts to share with folks in the meetings, and sometimes even message or look at media while meeting - none of which are possible here. If you get used to how fast, how well organized an iPad is, you will really have difficulty with the RM2 and how slow it is and how near impossible it is to flip back and forth easily and quickly in notebooks. Maybe someday that will be improved and zippier, and that day, I will get the next version so I can journal and keep my day planner -- for now, its a no go.

    You will be very disappointed if you are used to using something like Goodnotes or Notability -- the RM2 is remarkable to write on, but you can't bookmark pages in PDF's, and the scrolling is SO SO slow. I loved the look and feel but it was impractical and completely unusable for a day planner and day to day journal in which I need to flip back and forth quickly to find items. Its great for lots of 2-3 page notes.

    I would love to see a specialised drawing tablet made for pro artists that could function just as well as the Remarkable does. You don't have glaring LEDs, you get the organic paper feeling, and you don't have to worry about other applications because it only runs its own drawing programme. However I would like to add a colour palette to it so that it's not all black and white. It would also be cool if you could import brushes into it, or import picture files to trace or edit. Anyways, I think it's very possible to bring out this kind of technology. I'm hoping it happens soon.

    Hey Brad, I love your videos ! I went back on this one because I heard about some e-ink tablet running Android 10. It’s the Onyx Boox and I have understand they use some sort of Wacom technology for the stylus sensors but I’m not quite sure. I’m wondering if you already know about them and if you plan to review one ? (I hope everyone is not spamming you about it already.)

    I think you are limiting its usage by viewing from a designers perspective only. For me as a student, this is the perfect "paper" notebook. You can keep multiple notebooks in it and read pdf-files and ebooks and such. If the feel is as good as you say it is and the price is right then it's a rather compelling device.

    This product seems tailor-made for classroom use...with the advancement and proliferation of technology in our society, more and more grade school classrooms are switching to laptops or tablets. Of course this is a net positive for limiting the use of natural resources, but one downside to this change would be the decline in students' handwriting skills. Additionally, since the introduction of common core standards back in 2010 schools are no longer required to teach cursive handwriting, and only about two dozen states have passed legislation to reintroduce the style of handwriting used by the Founding Fathers to write the Constitution & the Declaration of Independence.(Imagine an entire generation of American citizens who were unable to read the Constitution...) I would love to see the company who makes these tablets land a contract with the federal government to supply these tablets to classrooms across the country.

    I use a Rocketbook for my client note taking. It’s always on my desk so when I get a new call I can just jot stuff down, back it up to a Google drive folder and then wipe the page clean with water. I’m an artist too, but I would probably never use this for sketching when I have my iPad Pro and procreate. I really REALLY want to make a use case for this device but for $400 there just isn’t one, and I think I’m a prime candidate for someone who WOULD enjoy this device. I think they need to lower the cost via sales/production volume to make it worth it for more consumers.

    As a teacher (one who sketches, btw), I'd love all my students to have one of these. My kid has one and the remarkable so superior to carrying around a big, bulky binder and yet it doesn't go on the internet, which can be way too tempting when a student is working on a laptop. I also want my students to take notes by hand because the science shows it's much better for their comprehension and memory. And as for the limits for artists - who cares? Think of it as an electronic sketchbook. Artists don't carry around paintboxes and easels with them everywhere they go, they carry sketchbooks, so this is a perfect all-in-one student binder and sketch pad.

It does have a handy app for window and smartphone where what ever you did in remarkable device is sync to the phone and pc. Really cool and much better writing experience than on most computers. For excellent beginner iPad is the way to go especially since most support using pencil. So spends the $100 and get an Apple Pencil and try it out on iPad

Organise in as many Notebooks as yoou want/need, it does not take up space on you desk, shelves or in you handbag. eMail your notes to yourself, or somebody else, maybe even convert it to machinewriting before pressing send. Read PDF's and add notes to the PDF... Love it
