Summary: I had to have this replaced under warranty, the screen is not very touch sensitive and although the reading experience and support infrastructure (shop, downloading etc.) are ok I think buyers would be less than totally satisfied with it.
After the experience with kobo, still prefer my Kindle

Summary: Very good unit. Fast delivery and well packaged product. The battery life is good but the rubber coating leaves many spots digital. Overall it is an ideal product for those who read, pity the Kobo store is not as diverse and free titles as the Amazon store.
Summary: I'm not sure. My older Kobo ereader was stolen at the airport. I bought this touch as I thought it would be better for my arthritis. Haven't really gotten used to it yet. Seems like it will perform real good. I just have to use it more.
Summary: Pros: 1) Great eink screen. 2) Great touch screen. 3) Long battery life 4) Good dictionary definitions of English words. 5) Translation dictionaries from English to Spanish, German, French, Italian and vice versa Cons: 1) The software does not have the option to create my own catalogs for my books.
Summary: The Good: I received my Kobo Touch for Christmas. I enjoy reading with my it. The screen is terrific for reading, even in our bright Florida sunshine, and the font size, line spacing and margins very customizable to accommodate nearly every reader's needs.
Summary: The size and weight of this device is fantastic. I give those aspects 5 stars. I found the touch screen to be "difficult" (not as responsive as some). The MAJOR issue I have with Kobo has less to do with the device itself, but with the company's customer service; Kobo seems to have bitten off way...
Setting up was a problem but once set up the Kobo is a decent device

Summary: Setting up was a nightmare, Kobo set up procedure is not user friendly at all. I only bought it for the free ebooks option from my library otherwise I would have gone for the Amazon Kindle. Delivery from supplier itself was fast and trouble free.
isn't quite slick perfection, but it's not far off and it feels just splendid in your hand.

Summary: The Kobo Touch is, without doubt, the friendliest eReader we've ever had the pleasure to meet. It smiles when in sleep mode, it says `please' when it needs more battery juice, and it has a lovely smooth padded-effect case which we find perversely pleasing to the touch.
Summary: I have had my Kobo Touch for almost a year now. The battery life is great - I can read for a month without charging. The size is good and it is nice and light. I can hold it for a long time without my hand getting sore. I find it to sometimes be very laggy.
