Susan Palwick (Reno, US)
Great device!

I've written 1,000 words a day since my Traveler arrived. I love the portability, and some very light editing is easier than I expected. I wish it cost less and had a matte case rather than a show-every-smudge plastic one, but overall, it does exactly what I bought it to do.

Molly Humphreys (Brooklyn, US)
Has a learning curve but otherwise great

Overall as a new user I’m happy with this thing it doesn’t hurt my eyes and helps me get into the flow with fiction nonfiction and anything really. The only downside is that navigating through your drafts is a little difficult at first as the commands used are unique but if you have the booklet handy you’ll do fine

April Espinosa (Highland, US)
It's great

I love it. It'll help me stay focused on the book instead of everything else.

Stefany Brothers (Tucker, US)
Love it but could be better

For the price I would expect some kind of backlight, I mean even my kindle does that and it’s also got e-ink. I also wish it came in other color options, the piano black gets covered in so many fingerprints it drives my ocd crazy. Otherwise I love this thing and I have written thousands of words already. It’s a great tool to get drafts done.

Courtney Burk (Royal Oak, US)
The Perfect Writing Companion

I love to write and as often as I sit at my desk to do so I would get distracted by email, apps, social media, etc. The traveler has become my greatest writing companion and it's perfect for on the go writing, especially when wifi isn't available!
