Problems galore

M. Somers, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: First one died within a few weeks, and their customer service was terrible. Sent it back and received a RECONDITIONED one, not a new one. It frequently freezes up after charging. Putting new books on the reader is time-consuming and non-intuitive. I would not buy this again.

Kobo-glo e-reader---malfunctioing

Denise Parkin, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: I was looking forward to having a working reader when I received this one. Right off the bat, it froze up and I couldn't get it to work. I sent an email and was told to use the reset, but wasn'[t told where it was. I finally found it and it did bring my reader back to life, but it was very confused. I had to reset it at least one time a day, most days more times.

If Only It Worked, I Would Love It

  • Summary: I wanted to love it sooooo much. I bought two - one for myself, one for my son. After two weeks, my son's brand new kobo froze. Tried everything recommended online, and by the company, it would not work. So Kobo replaced it. With a refurbished one. Yup, replaced our brand new Kobo with a refurbished Kobo. That froze after about a week of use. Same deal; tried everything, it wouldn't work. Kobo is now going to replace the refurbished one.

Thought it would be great - I was wrong

GTHall, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I bought my Kobo eReader in July of 2010, I had to get a second one within the first month.  It got locked up and Borders replaced it without any questions.  However, it's 6 months later and now it doesn't like to turn the page.  I have to hit the page next button several times before it does, but it skips a few pages and I have to page back to get to the actual next page.

  • Summary: Erg ontevreden; problemen onder andere: - scherm is traag en bediening daardoor erg houterig - het scherm wordt zwart bij een bij een paginawissel: erg onprettig - gevonden boeken in de Kobo-store zijn afhankelijk van de ingestelde taal - de taal in de Kobo-store staat ineens op Italiaans; met bovenstaand probleem dus fijn zoeken - je wordt gespamd met suggesties en aanbiedingen ondanks dat je hebt aangevinkt dat je dat niet wilt - van de 90% korting op de eerste aankoop...

Enttäuschung

Fabian123, geizhals.de
21 November 2012
  • Summary: Ich war begeistert als ich den Kobo Glo gefunden habe und konnte dann gar nicht darauf warten bis er endlich lieferbar wird, also gleich mal vorbestellt. Beim Auspacken freut man sich über die doch recht gute Verabeitung. Beim Anschalten merkt man dann allerdings schnell dass das Gerät noch nicht fertig ist. Einrichtung über WLAN ist 3x abgestürzt, so dass ich es dann über die Windows Shopping Software machen musste.
