almost perfect

Fenris Wolf "truth seeker", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a beautiful thin light weight e-reader. the light is perfect. the one reason i am giving the Kobo Aura a 4 star review is that the wave form screen technology which allows it to refresh the screen only once every chapter has the down side of lessening the contrast. the background is greyer than my kobo mini or the glo or the kindle PW2 and the letters are more of a dark grey than the nice black you see on the Kobo mini.

Great

  • Summary: The Kobo has many features that I like and find helpful. I love the light for those times when it is needed. The size is good. Every now and then I will be reading and the unit will go into sleep mode for no apparent reason. It does revert to the text in a minute or so, but it can be annoying.

I recommend

  • Summary: I didn't thought I would like it so much. I like its size, weight and I really enjoy the experience of reading. It's my first e-reader and I it was not hard to habituate with its technology, actually I think I prefer read an ebook than read a paper book. I'm very glad I can read all my pdf archives and carry them wherever I go. Yet kobo aura is a bit slow to turn on and to change the page, I mean the processor don't react instantly.

Buy a Kobo Aura, but don't buy it here

David Sims "David Sims", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a Kobo Aura for $122 elsewhere. The price here on Amazon is too high. Although both Kobo Aura and Kindle Paperwhite are very good eReaders, there are reasons for why someone might prefer the Kobo Aura. 1. Aura's CPU runs at 1 GHz. Paperwhite runs only at 800 MHz. 2. Aura has 4 Gb of RAM. Paperwhite has only 2 Gb of RAM. 3. Aura has 4 Gb of disk space. Paperwhite has only 2 Gb of disk space. 4. Aura needs page refresh less often than Paperwhite does. 5.

  • Summary: Heel makkelijk te bedienen. Je kunt boeken er zo opzetten dmv knippen en plakken als je hem aansluit op je PC. Heerlijk lezen met licht in het donker en buiten in de felle zon. Helaas is er iets niet goed met de accu, gaat soms van het ene op het andere moment 10% af. Dit had ik ook met mijn vorige e-reader (kobo glo), maar na omruilen in de winkel was het probleem opgelost. Ga deze dus ook maar weer omruilen.

Fijne-reader

  • Summary: Ik heb deze e raeder gekocht omdat ik met name de achtergrond verlichting miste bij mijn Kobo touch, deze is inmiddels door mijn vrouw in bezit genomen.. :-) Ik vind de afmetingen van de 6" versie erg prettig om in de hand te houden, de Aura HD is wat groter en dit is voor mij reden geweest om voor de Aura te kiezen.
