Used PocketBook Touch (8')for a while.

But for most of the time 5'phone (amoled) or a 11' tablet (ips) works fine.

No. They can't even display white. Just varying shades of grey.

Nah, because double pages work really badly.
I actually wrote a script to automatically split double pages in two but it's still kind of a pain to read manga on actually quite a small screen. Looks good, just a little small.

It's nowhere near comparable to a sheet of white paper.

4chan was made for vertical monitors.
A horizontal monitor, you get like what 7 or 8 posts all bunched up on the side and then the other 3/4ths of the screen is empty.
In portrait, you can see like 25 posts at a time and there's almost no wasted screen at all.
>>
Use PocketBook 920 (9'7) for years. It got some scratches because I'm a retard who bought and then took it's cover off because it was too heavy but it's still the best choice for me.

It sounds like you're too poor to afford multiple monitors.
>>
>>145507442
>not using both
It's obviously situational. Some people will read manga when they're out of the house or away from their desk.

Though I don't use an ereader anymore, tablets are better and more convenient in every way.

> too stupid to think that you need multiple monitors
Not him, but calling someone stupid while botching your sentence this badly is kind of embarrassing.
>>
>>145508055
Wait, what? But I do think you should have multiple monitors in general, 4chan included. Extra real estate is the best.

You should first learn how to formulate sentences before insulting someone based in their intelligence.
>>
>>145507835
Doing what else? Fapping to ant-sized doujins because half your monitor is 4chan now?

Both of you.

>a perfectly fine sentence
What he meant to imply was presumably "you're stupid enough to think that you need multiple monitors to browse 4chan," but he wound up with a sentence that implies that only a dumb person wouldn't browse 4chan with multiple monitors, which is clearly the opposite of what he meant.

I once had the same idea of using an e-ink reader for manga since most were in black-and-white anyway. Turns out it made most pages almost impossible to read due to the text being so tiny. Replaced it with a 10" Windows tablet and it works much better now.

I have a Paperwhite and I can read Getter Robo just fine, but having only 4GB of internal memory makes it inconvenient to read larger manga like Berserk or Rurouni Kenshin

Dude the kobo glo has had this for like 5 years
All kobos have expandable memory (their internal memory is actually an SD card).
A kobo aura HD should be perfect for manga.

I've had a kobo glo for 4 or so years and it has all those things.

Great but for the screen size. IMO 7" is a absolute mimimun, I had a Nexus 7 for a while before I got a Tab S 8.4", I wouldn't go back to the smaller size.

I'm using Nexus 7 for Manga/Anime/LN.
Doing very well considering how old the thing is, still on Kitkat, since I didn't want it to get laggy from the new updates.

Piggybacking on this, what do people use to make Kindle compatible files? All the image to pdf converters I've tried were pretty terrible.

Kindle Comic Converter

Very handy back when I had a Paperwhite, even now that I have a Kobo h2o, I still use it to optimize images for the screen size and fast page turns.

Kobo can handle cbz too so life is easy.

>>
>>145507265
But doesn't scrolling meters and meters of pages with a whole hand become kinda tiring? You need to scroll a lot and fast when reading manga in comparison to text. I tried it like once on my fathers iPad but didn't like it. Much easier to scroll using mouse, the screen is bigger. Also if I read on my laptop on bed I can lie down so I'm facing the screen sideways thus can see whole page which is nice.

Most of my reading these days is done on my Chromebook at workl. The online scans aren't as good as downloading your own, but it's better than nothing.
I've been reading more manga that ever since I got a job. How about that?

If I feel like lazing around in bed, I use my phone. Otherwise, my PC.

Strange thing is, I do have some physical copies of stuff that I really like, but I always end up reading on a screen anyways.

While I like the idea of an E-reader, in reality the whole thing is far too fucking finnicky, the resolutions are too low for comfort, and the only way to get a half-decent experience is to buy everything you want to read off Amazon.

I used to read it on my Kobo years ago.
Nowadays I just use my tablet, IPS screens have come a long way, low brightness setting on my tablet is about as good as the e-ink screens.

That's about the standard size for a tankobon, of course it's enough.

I use a cheap android tablet. It's 10 inches, so a little big to carry around if I don't have my backpack with me, but it's perfect size for Manga pages Cuz I never have to zoom in and out. Double pages can be a bit annoying but those are pretty rare as is. Plus I just don't have the money/space to collect volumes of books except ones I really love.

I see this is a sentence with words that mean something but I do not comprehend the message that was conveyed, what does 'out of the house' and 'away from their desk' even mean?

I recently bought a 4th gen Kindle for $20 on Amazon and now use that exclusively for light novels and real books. At first when I put manga on it, the text was really tiny and couldn't read it so I downloaded a thing called Kindle Comics Converter and used the feature that cuts out the margins and can read manga perfectly. I still use my Galaxy Tab A for manga mainly for weekly updated stuff but if I find a completed series I wouldn't mind reading it on a Kindle. Downside is no expandable memory

Anybody having issues with Kobo stuff?

My h2o is not appearing properly when I connect it to my PC. It just appears as an empty drive in Computer and it appears in Disk Managment but all the space on it appears as "Unallocated" eventhough the device is working fine and I'm able to read content stored on the internal memory.

I've had to resort putting stuff on a microSD card to load new books on it since I can't access the internal storage. When I connect it with the microSD card inserted I can access just fine, but no dice with the internal.
