Summary: I've been using the Kobo Touch for the past few years but really wanted a lighted e-reader. As I've been generally happy with Kobo and wanted to stick with the brand, I first considered the Glo but was put off by reports of an overly bright low setting, and so I looked at the Aura. Everything I read from reviewers and users was mostly positive, and so I decided that it would be my next e-reader. I have to say I am very happy with my choice.
Summary: Best e-reader I've tried. So easy to use that I didn't need to look at the onboard owner's guide. The screen is extra sensitive so that it can jump back a page if too much pressure is used when swiping the screen to turn the page -- but after an hour or so, it's easy to adjust to this, making for smoother operation and reading than with some other e-readers. Haven't had any screen freeze trouble.. The back light is more than adequate for reading in the dark.
Summary: Overall a very good product. Contrary to what the others indicated, the screen illumination is of a lesser quality compared to Kindle Paperwhite 1st generation (the LEDs on top are visible and create a brighter line, on the bottom one can see a dark line and all of this is quite irritating).
Summary: A number of years ago I was a reluctant convert to reading e-books. I love the feel of books, but books can be heavy. When I knew I was nearing the end of a book I would bring two more along with me so I would have a choice when it came time to pick the next one. This would make my purse VERY heavy. That was the first problem that lead me to consider reading an electronic version of a book.
Summary: Absolutely love it. I would sell my smartphone before I would let go of this reader. Perfect size. Fantastic performance and battery life. My only wish is that color e-ink screens were viable. If/when they become availible it is my hope that this be reoffered with a color e-ink screen and no other changes. It's that far too rare occurance when an item does exactly what it is supposed to do without flaw.
Summary: This is one of the best e-readers I've had the pleasure of reading on. I used to be a Kindle kind of gal, and while Kindle has some awesome features that Kobo does not *yet?* have, one thing that I didn't like was how unreliable all my Kindles turned out to be. Those of you Kindle users out there probably know what I'm talking about - frozen screens while trying to highlight a quote and eventual deaths by getting stuck on a random screensaver.
Summary: Premetto di essere un' amante della carta stampata in tutte le sue forme ma ho ceduto al fascino di questo "libro elettronico" per via dell'ormai inesistente spazio nella mia libreria e ammetto di essere felice della scelta nonostante tutte le perplessità iniziali. È davvero leggerissimo resistente e non crea alcun fastidioso riflesso e grazie al particolare schermo e al controllo della luminosità si può leggere anche all'aperto.
Pros: La batteria sembra non finire mai
Cons: Purtroppo non si sente il profumo dei cari vecchi fratelli cartacei
Summary: En septembre 2013, au moment de sa sortie, j'ai acheté à la FNAC la liseuse Kobo Aura au prix de 129 €, offre adhérents. C'est un objet qui me tentait depuis longtemps, pour lire en toutes circonstances sans s'encombrer de transporter des livres, sans les abîmer, et pour accéder à des ebooks moins chers que le livre papier, ou même gratuits.
Cons: Première prise en mains pas si simple, notice livrée ultra - succinte
