    I was looking for a thread about the EVE V (eve-tech.com) in order to know if somebody has this nice tablet, and to look for impressions.

    While they were basically not shipping from July 2018 (if I understood correctly), apparently they begun new shipments two weeks ago; I was wondering if anyone from the forum have been waiting for the machine, and it was shipped in these days.

    It seems to be a nice machine, also with its a bit older specs, so I was wondering if it is now reliable to buy or not...

    unfortunately the only news source I have is the official weekly update I looked a bit on youtube or reddit but I could not find other evidences... https://eve.community/t/weekly-update-01-02/16689

    There was some discussion and speculation back when Eve was announced. The thread is buried over here...

    http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/eve-v-discussion-thread.72029/

    If I recall, the consensus was that it was an inspiring project, but that their decision to go with N-Trig as the pen system was disappointing, especially after a bunch of us here chimed in on their survey forums when they were polling to see what tech they should use. Evidently, the cost of Wacom and the technical barriers were not considered worthwhile to a majority of their respondents. -Which is cool, but it lost steam and interest around here after that. Some of us can be a bit elitist and picky when it comes to stylus tech. (I'm certainly guilty of that.)

    But if you do end up getting one, please do come back and tell us what you think. I'm sure many would be interested in knowing!

    They were also dismissive of daylight viewability.

    Why is it that I still can't find a replacement for my Fujitsu Stylistic ST4121?

    A sad end to what started with much fanfare. Sad for the people who gave their money for a product and didn't get it. Thankfully the rest of us have enough "Surface killers" to choose from, including some with daylight-viewable displays.

    It's as good as it's likely to get.

    It was almost perfect until Fall Creator's Update --- I've had to roll back to 1703 twice now.

    Daylight viewability is only so-so --- have to turn on adaptive brightness and set brightness to maximum, and it's sort of viewable in sunlight, but only barely.

    Thanks for the links --- I'll have to keep the Xslate R12 in mind --- but it's not a transflective display? Just really bright LCD?
