Summary: Like the functions but is hard to integrate the software when you have kindle and library books using kindle software for kindle, kobo software for books bought through Kobo, and library books that have to be downloaded using ADE (Adobe Digital Editions.

Summary: I like my Kobo reader, but I'm not in love with it. I mainly chose the Kobo because it let me buy ebooks from local bookstores I support, which is important to me because I want my neighborhoods to continue to have bookstores I can browse in and get recommendations from.

Summary: It's disappointing when you think you're making a nice present for someone and then turns out that you got a bad unit. Although this item was a dud, the return process was fairly smooth and people I communicated with through email were courteous.
Great unit but some simple softwares changes could make it the best reader out there.

Summary: I've had this unit for 4 weeks now. The screen and backlight are fantastic. It is a pleasure to read on. However, thier customer service and software could use some improvement.

Pros: In built dictionaries and wikipedia function, backlight, responsive
Cons: The store has changed and the light button is hard to see . Feels flimsy
Summary: Das Gerät hat 3 Monate einwandfrei funktioniert. Das Display ist gut ablesbar, die Beleuchtung ist, ausser im unteren Bereich des Displays sehr gut. Die Akkuleistung ist im Vergleich zu meinem vorherigen eBook-Reader eher bescheiden. Aber das liegt vielleicht an der Beleuchtung.
Summary: Ik zal nooit een kobo aura aanbevelen. 7 mnd plezier van gehad en van het ene moment naar het andere plotseling rare strepen op het scherm. Gelukkig had ik nog garantie, NOT! Volgens de klantenservice had ik fysieke schade toegebracht, terwijl ik hem altijd in een cover heb.
Summary: De bouwkwaliteit van de e-reader is degelijk. De kwaliteit van de firmware is redelijk tot matig. Bij firmware updates gaan vaak functies onnodig kapot. Alle modellen Kobo readers maken gebruik van dezelfde firmware.
