  • Conclusion: Kobo's latest Aura ebook reader brings the Aura HD's technology down to a smaller device size and lower price point. It adds a few tricks of its own, but it's still not enough to switch from a Kindle.
  • Pros: Very lightweight. Flush screen. Beautiful edge lighting. Memory card slot. ePub support. The best font customization options in the business.
  • Cons: Inconsistent touch response. Visible ghosting on some page turns. Slightly weaker ebook ecosystem compared with Amazon and Barnes & Noble. A bit too expensive.
