Summary: I have several Kindles, including the DX. The Kobo is my most used one, by far, because: 1. The HD screen makes the text sharp and clear, which is very much appreciated. 2. The larger screen is more paperback book sized. 3. The glow screen makes it very nice to read in low ambient light conditions. 4. The micro-SD card expansion slot makes it easy to carry all your library with you. 5. The screensaver shows the cover of the book you're currently reading. 6.
Summary: As exciting as the first kindle. Genius fonts, larger screen and sharpening eink tech. Plus additional storage! The store and cloud service can't compare to Amazon's services but it is the best hardware I've seen in an e-reader.
Summary: Comparing this to the Kindle Paperwhite is a pretty even match. I must say that the resolution on the Aura HD is beautiful. While you do have to really look to see the difference, once you see them side by side you can see how much nicer the Aura HD really is. The Aura does have a slightly dull contrast compared to the Paperwhite as it is still using the e-ink pearl screen. Page turns are pretty much completed at the same time.
Summary: I was expecting it to be more faster, and having more precision because of "HD" word. It is cool looking, fast eink reader. However, I did not see very much difference with Kindle or Nook. Definitely good device, but when I asked myself does it worth it to pay so much extra, my answer is No.
Summary: I am often asked what the difference between a kindle, Kobo and a Nook is but obviously because e-readers are not cheap I don’t have one of each so I can never give my opinion on them. I used to have the first Kindle that came out which was the Kindle 3g with keyboard which I loved but after owning it for 13 months it died on me, I then received the Kindle Fire HD as a gift and this is what I currently have. I have now had a great opportunity to try the Kobo Aura HD.
Excerpt: I've had it since mid-Dec 2013 and it's already broken. I've had no problem with the warrantee, but if they tell you the replacement is shipped "right away", it means 10-15 days !! But I miss it so much .. I really love it.
