Kobo Aura HD hands-on review: the hottest eReader yet
8 March 2014
Conclusion: The Kobo Aura HD is a high-end eReader that isn’t looking to challenge the multimedia-focused tablets. But, in this jack of all trades market, it may be difficult to sell the idea of sophistication when it lacks features like video and colour that most people enjoy – especially at a price of...
Conclusion: So what are the big differences between these two e-readers? The Aura has more flexibility in your font selection, it has double what Amazon offers. Advanced users may dig the ability to load in your own fonts.
Kobo Aura and Aura HD review: paving the way to the ultimate e-reader
13 October 2013
Excerpt: Kobo is investing a lot in its new e-readers, and we recently took a closer look at the Aura HD and the new Aura. Which one is the ultimate e-reader is difficult to say. What you can be sure about is that either one will make you very happy.
Summary: A few months ago, we sat down to compare the top e-readers released in the past year and find out which would work best for our avid readers out there. Naturally, the latest Kindles and Nooks scored high marks, but surprisingly the one device that stood out was the Kobo Aura HD .
Conclusion: The Kobo Aura HD’s high-resolution screen improves the reading experience by making fonts crisp and clear at any size. Unfortunately, the Nook and Kindle E Ink readers already do a pretty good job of this and the Aura’s display doesn’t surpass them by much.
Pros: Excellent high-res screen, Light evenly distributed on the screen, Comfortable design, Includes browser and games
Cons: Design doesn't feel premium, Text washes out when light is at full brightness, Light is somewhat harsh, Screen doesn't respond consistently

Excerpt: The Kobo Aura HD is the newest ebook reader to hit the market, and it comes with a unique screen that is larger than typical E Ink ereaders, plus the resolution is higher. But is the screen good enough to win over would be Kindle Paperwhite buyers?
Excerpt: Battling the e-reader juggernaut Amazon is tough. Just ask Barnes & Noble. Yet, Kobo lives on — not just surviving, but thriving. The Japanese company’s success in the e-reader market can be pinned equally on its strong international presence and its willingness to create a product specifically...
Pros: Best e-reader screen — remarkable sharpness and quality of lighting. Comfortable for righties. Font tweaking helps create a more pleasurable reading experience. Great battery life — at least a few weeks with Wi-Fi turned off. Side-loading titles is easy.
Cons: Kobo’s ecosystem is eclipsed by Amazon’s. Not so comfortable for lefties. Price is too high. Ugly red power button.
