this Aura Reader arrived in like new condition and works as described

Amazon
28 September 2014
  • Summary: With electronics, there's always a chance that used may be compromised. Buying through Amazon makes it worth the risk, as they stand behind the purchase. Given that, this Aura Reader arrived in like new condition and works as described. I love it, love it, love it. It's my third reader. I have a keyboard Kindle, a Sony Touch and now this. Some reviewers don't like the lower contrast of the dark gray etext.

This is a great alternative for those who prefer a non-Amazon device.

Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: I was offered a Kobo Aura for review last year when it came out but I've never reviewed it for silly reasons. It's hard to write a review on a product you don't use often. I rarely use my Kobo for no other reason that I'm lazy. My biggest issue has nothing to do with the device itself. In fact the display and backlight on this Kobo are awesome and actually slightly preferred to my Kindle.

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

Amazon
29 December 2013
  • 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.

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.

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.

Buy a Kobo Aura (not HD, just plain Aura), but don't buy it here

almost perfect

Fenris Wolf "truth seeker", Amazon
18 October 2013
  • 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.

Mycket bra

hifilip, Prisjakt
25 October 2014
  • Summary: + Grym batteritid. + Många inställningsmöjligheter i läsläget. + Stor bokaffär inbyggd. Det finns både engelska och svenska titlar. + Går bra att låna e-böcker på bibliotek. + Kul läge med statistik. - Upplösningen är bra, men inte lika bra som riktigt papper. - Bakgrundsbelysningen funkar bra, men är något ojämn.

Ottimo reader

evergrenn27, Ciao
25 July 2014
  • Summary: Salve a tutti scrivo qua in questione alla mia esperienza con questo fantastico ebook reader. In precedenza possedevo un kindle 4 versione nera con cui mi trovavo benissimo, dopo aver fatto pressione accidentalmente con un ginocchio sullo schermo, ho deciso di comprarlo. Scatola fantastica, schermo bello ampio, e come sempre la comodità di avere alla portata di dito tutti i proprio libri preferiti.
  • Pros: Leggero, ampio schermo
  • Cons: lettura all'aperto

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.
