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.
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.
This feels like a poor relation in respect of the Sony

Summary: I had to buy a kobo, as my Sony ereader finally gave up on me. This feels like a poor relation in respect of the Sony. It does the job but feels cheap, plasticky and underwhelming. I do like the front lights and I can now access all my unread books.
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: This product is quite nice, the screen broadcasts a display of 'ebooks' in a fashion which makes it identical to reading off of a sheet of paper. There are numerous features, you can browse the web (albeit not as fast as a smartphone), and utilize many forms of documents (PDF, MOBI etc).
Summary: Quality of the screen is really good, better than "Kindle Paper white Gen 1" (compared visually with friends device) And Kobo lets you turn off back-light completely while Kindle lets you lower it to 1% only. The light is good too, but at 100% its too bright so normal usage should be at 10-50%.
