The Kepler Pro is marketed as Onyx's best 6 inch eReader, and so far, it has lived up to its hype in my experience. The metal alloy backing and side buttons, and the flush display, help to give it a feel of higher quality when compared to the C67ML Carta. The K-Pro offers 16 GB of internal storage, of which about 12 GB is available to the user. This easily surpasses the 8 GB of the C67 series and the Boyue T62/T63 series. The K-Pro's user app partition is about 1 GB - more than the C67 series and equal to Boyue's offerings.
Though the K-Pro and the C67ML have the same CPU, the K-Pro has double the RAM (1 GB compared to 512 MB). If you use only the stock reader apps, you won't noice much of a difference in performance. But, if you install additional Android apps, the extra RAM translates into better overall performance.
The left and right buttons are conveniently placed, and are customizable to a point. Page turns are generally quick and smooth, whether you use NeoReader or a third party app like AlReader. NeoReader 2.0 is actually quite good as a reader app, if you use ePub or PDF. The PDF reflow function works well. The ePub experience is customizable in a number of ways. I find AlReader to be an even better choice, but I could easily live with NeoReader.
The Carta display offers 300dpi. Text is clear, and contrast is very good. When I first started it up, there seemed to be a problem with ghosting, but that has since vanished (like a ghost?). The front light is quite even. I have to look very carefully to see any blotchiness whatsoever. The brightness range is good. It is easy to find a comfortable brightness.
Battery life seems to be on a par with the C67 series, if not slightly better. Start-up time is not quick, but no worse than other eReaders.
The K-Pro has a microSD card slot. I have not yet put a card into it. It also has Bluetooth, but I have not tried that yet.
The K-Pro was also easy to root, for those who care about that.
Kudos also go to the eReader Store. I live in the USA, and this store is in Germany. Nevertheless, my device arrived 48 hours after I placed my order. Impressive!
I have found, so far, only one drawback to the Kepler Pro - the fact that Onyx saw fit to give it Android 4.0.4, which is even older than the C67's 4.2.2. This device should be able to handle a newer version of Android. The eReader Store says that a 4.4 version of the firmware is in the works. That would be a nice improvement.
Overall, I can definitely recommend the Kepler Pro, even with 4.0.4. Give it 4.4, and it gets even better!

Endlich wieder ein Ebook-Reader der wirklich alles liest und skaliert. Ich habe schon Kobo, PocketBook und Kindle ausprobiert: Alle haben ein Problem mit selbstformatierten Epub (mit Calibre) oder Bücher die woanderst gekauft wurden als ihre eigenen Händler. Abgesehen davon das die Lesesoftware oft nicht mal imstande ist Bücher nach Geschmack zu verwalten haben sie Probleme beim Laden von "Artfremden" Büchern. Dies ist mein 4. Onyx-Reader und ich muss dazu nur noch sagen das diesmal sogar die Hardware einfach gelungen ist. Es ist ein schönes Gerät das in die Bestenliste gehört.
