Summary: Both the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kobo Glo are excellent eReaders. I own both. Compared with the Kindle Paperwhite... Minor points of inferiority: * The Kobo Glo is slightly less responsive to screen touch. * The Kobo Glo's presentation occasionally makes less efficient use of the page.
Summary: I would rate it higher if my two devices did not break almost at the same time.
Pros: E-ink screen. epub files supported. Books uploading is easy, just plug it in and copy them.

Summary: Got this elsewhere and did research others before plunging for this one. It was this one or the Sony one. When researching the Kobo I was told it catered for US-English and proper English and this I feel now I have it is a big let down.
