The Glo has an integrated light for its e-ink screen

Good Gear Guide.au
17 June 2012
  • Summary: The Kobo Glo is an incredibly simple device, matching Amazon’s Kindle in its user-friendliness and gradual learning curve. It makes finding and buying books nearly seamless, although Amazon still has a slight edge in pricing and range of books. The Glo is almost as refined as is possible for a touchscreen e-reader.
  • Pros: Utterly simple to use, Screen lighting is excellent, Accessible price
  • Cons: Kindle Store offers more books at better prices, Wi-Fi easy to forget

  • Pros: User-friendly, bright screen, ePub support, good value, expandable storage
  • Cons: Touchscreen not always responsive, boxy design

Test : Kobo Glo

PC World
9 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Avec son Glo, l’ex-firme canadienne (devenue japonaise) Kobo veut montrer qu’elle se situe toujours dans la course et est prête à en découdre avec l’excellent Kindle Paperwhite de l’américain Amazon. Mais peut-on vraiment lutter à armes égales avec un tel mastodonte ? En proposant une bonne liseuse et en s’offrant le soutien d’un géant de la grande distribution, tout est possible...
  • Pros: Poids plume, Dimensions, Port Micro SD, Adapté aux gauchers, Ouvert aux ePub
  • Cons: L’aspect trop “jouet”, Éclairage bancal, Réactivité parfois limite, Quelques plantages, Pas d’adaptateur secteur
