25 September 2013
  • Excerpt: When Kobo released the Kobo Aura HD earlier this year, its large, high-resolution screen immediately impressed. Kobo's latest eReader, the Aura, has a slightly lower resolution than its HD counterpart, and a more typical 6in display.

Kobo’s new mid-level Aura is as seamless an e-reader as we could want

Good Gear Guide.au
12 September 2013
  • Summary: Kobo’s $190 Aura e-reader continues the company tradition of getting out of the way of your reading. The Aura’s design is unobtrusive with some nice aesthetic cues, and the hardware is fast enough to be responsive to user input.
  • Pros: Great design and screen, Seamless e-reading experience, Reading Life awards are a nice extra
  • Cons: Weak Wi-Fi, Slightly clunky bookstore browsing

Test: Kobo Aura (EBook-Reader)

CHIP Online
21 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Der EBook-Reader Kobo Aura mit beleuchtetem 5,9-Zoll-Display zeigt scharfe 758 x 1.024 Bildpunkte. Doch im Test entäuscht der Aura mit schwacher Akku-Laufzeit, die nur rund 13.000 Seitenwechsel zulässt. Obendrein dauert das Umblättern unnötig lang.
  • Pros: Geringes Gewicht, Kompaktes Gehäuse, Beleuchtetes Display
  • Cons: Magere Akkulaufzeiten, Langsame Seitenwechsel, Kontrastschwächen

Review: Kobo Aura e-reader

tabletsmagazine.nl
26 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Als je al digitale boeken wilt lezen dan is een e-reader in mijn ogen verreweg het beste apparaat om dit te doen. En van alle e-readers is de Kobo Aura een heel aardige optie. Eigenlijk alles is meer dan gemiddeld goed aan deze e-reader.
  • Pros: Goed display, Mooie en comfortabele achtergrondverlichting, Integratie met Pocket
  • Cons: Redelijk prijzig, Geen fysieke knoppen, Geen ondersteuning voor audioboeken
