Excerpt: Well, it’s finally finished. Here’s the link to my Kobo Glo review. The Kobo Glo has been out for over 2 and a half months now so I guess this review falls into the better late than never category.
Kobo Glo review: another illuminated e-reader lights up the market
2 November 2012
Summary: Once again, Kobo has produced a solid little reader. The Glo's got the features that helped make the last-generation Touch a nice device, this time coupled with a front-light technology that might well be the best in its class. The UI is nothing to write home about, Reading Life isn't quite the selling point the company seems to think it is and it's still not as comfortable to hold as the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight.
Finally a Reasonably Priced, No Frills E-Ink Reader
19 May 2012
Excerpt: The debate over the future of dedicated eReaders has warred on between technologists and geeks to the point of absurdity at this point, and frankly we’re sick of the drivel. Of course tablets like the iPad clearly will prove useful to those in need of an integrated solution for everything from watching movies, to browsing the web, checking email, and editing spreadsheets in bed.
Excerpt: The Good Very good price. Simple, comfortable interface. Universal ePub support; some drag-and-drop. E Ink battery and eye benefits. Part of multi-device ecosystem. SD card slot. The Bad Sometimes slow to load. No file support beyond ePub and PDF. No Internet; Bluetooth of limited help. Design and the e-paper display What defines the eReader is precisely what isn't there.
Pros: Very good price., Simple, comfortable interface., Universal ePub support; some drag-and-drop., E Ink battery and eye benefits., Part of multi-device ecosystem., SD card slot.
Cons: Sometimes slow to load., No file support beyond ePub and PDF., No Internet; Bluetooth of limited help.
Conclusion: The ComfortLight is perfectly executed at the first time of asking on the Kobo Glo, and makes a great option on an e-reader whose all-round quality and versatility comes at the price of occasionally needing a computer. A top quality reading experience awaits; stuff it in a Christmas stocking and watch a loved one's face light up - literally... though they probably won't talk to you for the rest of the day.
