Summary: This was an excellent product what what it will be used for. It was inexpensive, but served its purpose. It was received in excellent condition. All the parts were in the packaging as if it were still new. I would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: Amazingly reviews for kobo products on amazon are generally negative but mostly positive on other sites. Kobo is the ereader recommended by the American library association. Kobo is extremely well supported at public libraries were you can get just about any book for free down loaded to your kobo from any where if you have a library card which is free. if you live in even a midsize town you can read for free on kobo. you can share books on kobo.
Summary: As the title suggest, I adore my Kobo. This is the first eReader that I ever purchased. I got it at Target, of all places, for $75. That was the Touch with Ads. But 6 months later, something happened (I don't exactly know what) that caused the software to glitch up, bricking the Kobo. So I contacted Kobo Customer Support, and I was presented with the most genuinely helpful support team I've ever encountered.
Summary: this was a gift have one of my own gave it to my sister it's her new best friend she can read anywhere & everywhere she wants great cause she's not carrying around a 5 pound book in her purse it's opened up a "happy world" for her glad she got it glad they make them!
Summary: This is our second Kobo Touch. It is a nice little ereader that remains fast no matter the number of books, magazines, and other material that I drop into it (and I abuse this little thing). Until recently, it suffered the same "past this capacity, I'm molasses" slowness that every other ereader on the market had. However, the recent update fixes this issue...for the Kobo. I cannot speak for other ereaders. I have found the community to be pleasant as well.
Summary: I love my Kobo Touch!!! I have read hundreds of books on it and have enjoyed every minute of it. Admittedly the fact you are "supposed" to use their software is annoying, but it is easy enough to get around. My husband uses Linux and I use a Mac--- We can both load books onto the Kobo without their software on our computers- if you use an SD card. It looks just like a flash drive and once books are loaded onto that the reader sees them.
