Playlist Bookeen Cybook Opus still sleek, but lacks integrated store

Macworld
17 August 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Bookeen’s latest iteration of its Cybook Opus (originally reviewed last year ) puts a little spit and polish on the original, which was one of the skinniest and lightest e-readers available. At 5.3 ounces, the new Cybook Opus retains the featherweight crown, but the current Sony Reader Pocket Edition ( ) almost matches it at 5.5 ounces—and that model offers an easier-to-navigate touchscreen.
  • Pros: Light weight makes for easy one-handed operation, Sleek and snappy-performing e-reader
  • Cons: No music player or dictionary, No Wi-Fi--must hook up to PC to get content, Pricey, No integrated bookstore

Review of the Bookeen Cybook Opus Color

Best Tablet Review
17 February 2011
  • Excerpt: When we heard that Bookeen was releasing a new version of their Cybook Opus eReader, this time calling it the Cybook Opus Color , we were a little giddy. What color screen technology will they be using, we pondered? Maybe they’ve been in talks with Mirasol or Liquavista or Bridgestone to provide a reflective color experience, we hoped. Heck, even a color LCD would probably attract quite a few readers, we deduced.

  • Summary: Yes, the Bookeen Cybook Opus is definitely a good entry level eReader for people who want to get to know the eBook reader market or for those who value portability above all. It’s small; it’s intuitive; it gets the job done. But at the same price (and sometimes for even less), you can get its fiercest competitor, the Sony PRS-300 Pocket edition, which has much stronger brand recognition, a better design, and a mildly better customer support department.
  • Pros: The most portable device to date, Supports a good variety of file formats, Lots of font sizes to choose from (which is extremely important on a small eReader)
  • Cons: Has only basic eReader functions (no wireless, dictionary, annotation capability), A bit high-priced compared to its direct competitor (the Sony PRS-300 Pocket Edition), Not a strong brand, combined with customer support complaints, smells like trouble

  • Excerpt: (1 items) If you've been waiting for a no-frills e-book reader that's scarcely heavier than an iPhone, check out the Cybook Opus from Bookeen. Available in an array of colors, and weighing just 5.3 ounces and measuring less than half an inch thick, the Opus wrests the e-reader portability crown from the Sony Reader Pocket Edition ( )—unfortunately, its $199 price is a bit larger.
  • Pros: EPub support ensures plenty of content, Extremely lightweight, Intuitively designed, Lots of font sizes
  • Cons: Lacks extras such as dictionary and annotation
