Summary: I love this e-reader, the first I've ever owned. I'm still getting familiar with the various features but, so far, I really love it. My only complaint is that the detailed user's manual did not come with the device; I had to find it online.
Summary: I have had my Kobo Aura for about eight months. I find the text contrast to be excellent as opposed to another reviewer that said the text was to gray and not dark enough. A charge lasts so rediculously long, actually more than a month. Someone else listed 7 reasons to like the Aura, I agree.
I will keep this ereader for a long time and buy another identical to it

Summary: I absolutely love this ereader. It's perfect in size and I love the internal lighting. Everything is so easy to use and very user friendly. The WIFI hookup is quick and updating the library is a breeze. Access to the books I'm reading is at my fingertip and easy to get to.
Summary: The best e-book reader on the market. Backlight works perfectly. Wifi connection works fine enough, able from a distance. Ideal for those who complain about not reading enough. It really inspires you to read more with so many books at hand.
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.
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...
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).
