The BOOX Max3 paper-like e-reader is the last tablet you’ll ever need

There's nothing quite like curling up with a mug of hot coffee or tea and a book on a cool autumn day. Letting the rest of the world fall away and becoming lost in a different world or learning something new is stress-relieving for many of us. Finding the e-reader to meet your needs can be difficult, but we have the solution.

The Onyx BOOK Max 3 e-ink e-reader gives you the ability to draw like never before

Shopping for the right reading tablet to meet all of your needs can be a stressful experience. With so many seemingly endless options on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? There’s always the pressure to go for one of the big-name brands that make a lot of promises but don’t always deliver. The Onyx BOOX Max3 E-reader is the end of your search for the perfect e-reader.

It’s so light and thin, you can work on the go with the BOOX Max3

Many of the options for e-readers are on tablets that function more like a laptop with many different features and apps that don’t pertain to reading or note-taking. You’ll find it easier to focus on the task at hand with this paper-like e-reader. Even if that task is simply reading a book for pleasure.

The best display for reading

There’s nothing worse than trying to read a digital book outside. Most screens are shiny and the sun glare can make reading impossible. Rather than moving around to sit comfortably, you’re moving around to try to reduce the glare so you can actually see the words on the screen. This paper-like e-reader is glare-free and readable in direct sunlight. In fact, it’s easily readable in most lighting conditions.

Reading in direct sunlight is no problem on this paper-like e-reader

The BOOX Max3 features a 13.3″ flush-front e-ink screen. It’s the perfect size for reading PDF documents and textbooks without having to zoom and scroll. And at 2200 x 1650(207ppi), it’s sharp and clear. It’s also extraordinarily thin and light, making it easy to take to the office, to school, or anywhere.

Take notes with ease on this paper-like e-reader

College textbooks are expensive. Very expensive. Used books are cheaper, but sometimes the bookstore is out of stock. Sometimes the books are full of someone else’s notes and scribbles. While those notes can be helpful, what if you have a different professor?

Digital textbooks are becoming more and more popular and for good reason. If only there was a good way to take notes on them. Now, there is. With this paper-like e-reader, taking notes in class is easier than ever.

The BOOX Max3 is for more than just reading

Rather than just highlighting and taking notes that you can’t see unless you click on them, write directly in the book. The lightweight and shatterproof PMMA based screen even imitates the friction of paper. And with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, you’ll feel just like you’re writing on paper.

Fast and secure is a priority

Never worry about security and speed with the BOOX Max3 reading tablet. The back button is equipped with fingerprint recognition. All you have to do is tap to open the tablet, but you can be rest assured that no one else can access your personal information.

BOOX Max3 features 5GHz Wi-Fi for faster refresh than ever. Now, you can even watch videos on your e-ink tablet. You’ll have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and an extension of 512GB of storage to hold all of the video and books you need, right at your fingertips.

With a powerful Qualcomm Octa-core 2GHz Processor, you’ll be speedier and more high-performance than before. And we all know how important that is when you’re on the go and using your device for work or school. The Android 9.0 operating system makes future opportunities for apps and performance endless.

This e-ink e-reader is more versatile than you think

Recent studies indicate that a dual monitor system makes you more efficient. Instead of flipping back and forth from different windows, you can save time by having multiple windows open and viewable at once. With the upgrades to the BOOX Max3, you’re able to use your e-reading device as a secondary monitor.

Use the BOOX Max 3 as a secondary monitor for an even more productive work day

All you need to do is connect your computer with BOOX Max3 via an HDMI cable, and you’re good to go. You’ll have four refresh modes: A2 Mode for scrolling reading, Speed Mode for quick flipping, Normal Mode for text reading, and X Mode for websites and video.

Need to read and take notes in a secondary document? No worries. With split view capabilities, you can do even more. You can have two pages open in a book, two different documents, or have a note open while you read.

Don’t forget the accessories

When you purchase your BOOX Max3, you’ll not only receive your e-reading device. You’ll get a stylus pen, a USB-C cable, an HDMI cable, a USB-C card reader, and a screen protector. You’ll also receive your warranty and Quick Start Guide.

Reviewing PDF documents on your e-reader has never been easier

The website has a plethora of additional accessories to choose from. We like the Onyx Book Stand. If you plan on using your BOOX Max3 as a secondary monitor, the book stand will be an invaluable purchase.

What we ❤️

This paper-like e-reader is perfect for school and work. Being able to take handwritten notes directly in books and documents is invaluable.

With split view capabilities, you can have two documents or books open

We love the paper feel. Sure, other tablets offer writing and drawing capabilities and apps, but they don’t feel like paper. There’s a different, tactile feel to writing and drawing on paper that a shiny glass surface can’t give you.

What we’d ❤️ to see in future designs

White is clean-looking and sleek, but it’s also a bit scary. Touch it with dirty fingers, and it’s super obvious. We’d love to see some color options like black, gold or rose gold, and silver or gray for those of us who are intimidated by owning pristine white things.

Where to buy

The Onyx BOOX Max3 is available for $859.99 on their official website. If you order now, you’ll receive one case cover, remote, tether, and adapter for free. That’s a huge bonus since accessories can be pricey. Recommendation? Jump on this offer now.
