  • Summary: On/off button does not work as properly as the black one. It may be just the one that I bought, though. Still I recommend the black one. There is difference.

  • 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. I'm coming from a Nook simple touch reader, I wanted a better screen, great backlight, and a Micro SD card to hold all of my books. KOBO is the only company that has all three. Unfortunately, there is no way to browse your folders on the micro SD card through your KOBO.

  • Summary: In de eerste instantie leek het een fijne ereader ingebouwd lampje prima. Leest fijn. Maar nu zijn met enige regelmaat de boeken weg. Moet dan eerst de reader aansluiten op de computer. Daardoor onbetrouwbaar en geen goede vervanger van een papieren boek. Slechte zaak. Hiervoor een bebook gehad. Nooit problemen mee gehad. En nu continu.

  • 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. De ingebouwde lettertypen (de door Kobo ingesloten/meegeleverde lettertypen) kennen diverse problemen dat met firmware updates nog steeds niet is opgelost (integendeel zelfs).

  • Summary: Eerst een Sony T 2. En nu helaas nu een Kobo Aura. Gewoon menu installeren gevolgd. Veel malware via KOBO-shop. Geen enkele aanwijzing dat je via de Adobe Digital Editions epubs over moet zetten. Na uitzetten blijft boekomslag zichtbaar. Brandt erin! Onzin. Bij iets te lang op de uitschakelaar zijn alle beken weg behalve de KOBO-boeken!!! Bij Sony gewoon kopieren en plakken in verkenner. Geen 90 graden draai scherm mogelijk. Apparaat is te breed en oncomfortabel.

  • Summary: L'ho regalato ma devo dire che non sono una grandissima amante dei Reed Book. Non ne sono amante perchè preferisco ancora il libro cartaceo, girare i fogli come una volta, sentire l'odore della carta nuova, collezionare nella libreria i libri pieni di colori, immagini, storia. Ma a quanto pare la tecnologia va avanti. I libri cartacei hanno costi di certo non proprio super economici, soprattutto alcuni, e visto il periodo..
  • Pros: buono
  • Cons: preferisco alla vecchia maniera
