    Sony DPT-RP1 reviews

    13.3" 16GB DPT-RP1 Digital Paper System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware, doesn't work with Linux!!! The hardware is great, and the user experience is mostly good. The firmware lacks a few obvious features (e.g. you can't look at the embedded contents list of the pdf) but it works nicely. HOWEVER, I can't recommend this product for Linux users such as myself, since the only way to connect to the device is via Sony's software that runs only on Windows or Mac. I couldn't get it to run with Wine, so I have to run a Windows virtual machine to connect to the device. There is also no android or iOS app, (despite the hardware having wifi, bluetooth and nfc) so connecting to a laptop/desktop is the only option. The previous model DPT worked like a simple USB storage device, so could easily connect to Linux computers. This is a massive backward step by Sony, very disappointing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb but the stylus does not work at times I have owned the first version DPT-S1 and that was great. This version is even better than the first version in terms of responsiveness and ergonomics. However, although I correctly installed tips of the stylus, sometimes it is not responding. I have never had any problem with the stylus of the first version and I don't understand why the second version has a built-in stylus. I think the problem is related with the battery. Although I checked the battery level and installed new tips this responsiveness problem persists and very annoying. I don't know if I have a bad stylus. Otherwise it is a great tool for academics and researchers like me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the device Oeverall I like this product. It's super light, big and the display ratio is great. Of course it has many drawbacks. 1, It can only read pdf and it has no outline of contents which makes page finding really hard. 2, It can connect to wifi yet there seems no use of the wifi connecting. It cannot surf internet or check emails. However, if you are easily distracted when reading on a computer or cellphone, cannot hold the heaviness of carrying a book, dpt-rp1 surely is the lightest digital paper for reading and marking academic works with no additional function to distract.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product After waiting for more than 10 days, I received this product. I think it is very helpful for people who need to do a large amount of reading. The product is so light that you can just use one hand to handle it. And I think the e-ink screen doesn't hurt eyes like the computer monitors. The pen is nice, too. Though it doesn't support the function of showing table of contents now, we can touch and move the round point on the top of the page to change page number. However, I hope that Sony can update the software version to support this function to ensure readers have a great reading experience.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the wait, but some quibbles I bought the Sony digital paper and the cover. Shipping was fast and I got the item a couple of days ago. Overall, I am very pleased with the reader, but the cover, not so much. Pros The resolution is great. Words are sharp, and pdf documents look great. I have many reference books and articles, and reading them on an A4 size screen is a great experience. The stylus works well, and it is very responsive. Making notes on documents is really easy. The product is very light, thus making it portable. After installing the digital paper app, transferring documents is easy. But do note that setting up of wireless transfer can only be done via the app. Cons Depending on the angle of the light, the screen can be quite reflective at times, which can be pretty annoying. The reader, which costs a pretty penny, is only attached to the cover using a thick piece of double sided tape. Frankly, it does not inspire much confidence. It remains to be seen if the tape holds up. If it fails, the reader will simply fall off. A more secure way of attaching the reader is much appreciated. The cover is made of a faux felt/suede material. Personally, I would much prefer it to be made of PVC. From the looks of it, stains, and especially water stains, are likely to be quite obvious. Given the faux felt/suede material, it does not lend itself well to cleaning with a wet cloth. Given that this is such a niche product, it is quite unlikely that third party options would be easily available, so I guess nothing much can be done on this front.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NEED updates for academic use; still super satisfied. I'm an academic user. 1. NEED Return button. After clicking a footnote, which are usually at the end of a paper, I need to return to the page I was reading. 2. NEED more styles of highlighting. Currently there is no option for highlighting. Of course no need for different colors; but we can highlight a sentence by having dotted underlines, wavy underlines, solid underlines, along with the real highlighting. 3. NEED Table of Content button, perhaps to be placed right next to page number and progress bar on the top. Some papers do have table of contents, and it is easier to jump back and forth with this button. 4. NEED Bookmark List button. In a paper with many tables, I need a solution for going back and forth, say, between page 6 (where table 3 is located), page 21 (where table 10 is located), and page 24 (where the author explains something with these tables). By clicking Bookmark List button (which could be the entire 1cm right margin of the screen), I hope to see something similar to the existing Handwriting List; but instead of thumbnails of pages, the thumbnails of my handwritten names of the bookmarks. So by two clicks, I can jump to any page I have bookmarked. Another solution could be similar to that in DPT-S1: allowing multiple tabs; but locate these tabs on the right or left margin so that more tabs can be created. 5. NEED rotation for a single page. Sometimes a horizontal table is shown in portrait view; we only need to rotate this specific page, not all the other pages. 6. NEED on-device page-cut function. In some papers, I can make notes only on the half of the right or left margins; it's because the width of a PDF file is narrow. I usually use acrobat to extend the width of such PDF files so that I can make notes on the entire white margins. This is time costing. If the digital paper provide a function that extend the width of a PDF file, that would be very helpful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's good, but better keep your old eReader... Screen glare is annoying! But in general hardware is just good enough, very lightweight. Forelight would be very useful, but no one knows how to do it yet for 13 screens... Firmware is it early stages with lucks of basic features like TOC. The device is very useful anyway. Software is a little bit buggy, one of two Win10 computers suddenly lost ability to wirelessly print to Digital Paper (Customer Service was unable to help). I miss online book store support a lot. It would be just a killing feature to have a good Safari Books Online integration or something like that... Probably need to buy an extra reader for that and carry two huge readers and notebook. Digital Paper, eh?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me love reading again! I bought it since I read textbooks, papers and slides daily and I was sick of having to print them out, carry them around, and only soon later to have them rot on the shelf, unable to be indexed and queried. It solved this need perfectly. The page flipping is lightening fast and the handwriting is incredibly responsive and natural-feeling, with almost no delay at all. The speed is even beyond my expectation. Somehow unexpectedly, it also turned out to be a perfect device for reading anything in general. The reading experience is magnitudes better than that offered by Kindle since its screen size is naturally A4. Kindle might be used to read novels but the reading experience for any other kind of document is woefully underwhelming and tiring. Even when reading novels/news articles, I often find myself losing focus with Kindle before I could even finish an article, not to mention with computer screens. Not anymore with this device. Now I just save news articles from the Internet and read them on digital paper, and I can finish them with concentration, in a flash, instead of allowing myself to be diverted by useless distractions. I'm now considering selling my Kindle Voyage. The only two gripes I have with it are the somehow inexplicable inability to use a pdf file's index table to jump to the desired page, and the lack of a Linux companion app, which I'm sure will affect quite a number of people in the academia/tech industry. However, they are all minor problems and wouldn't stop me from giving it a 5 star rating. I've been feeling so happy since receiving it!
