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: bought this for my wife thinking she could skip the downloading onto her computer and then transfering the file to her reader... doesn't work that way; you can read epub files but must still manually transfer them over. I don't know if this is the way it works in the states; this is for Canada.
Summary: The best thing about the Kobo is the on off illumination Of course, it did not help that it was a couple of weeks before, because of website problems, I could access the user instructions. Hopefully things will improve
Summary: There are some good things about the device, but there are some problems too. It was quite easy to set up, and to use (though navigating takes a little getting used to). The most annoying thing for me was the "recommendations" made on the Kobo website.
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.
Summary: Selten so ein schlechtes Produkt erlebt. Erst funktioniert die Software nicht (Gerät stürzt andauernd ab). Mittlerweile sind 2 von 2 Geräten nach weniger als einem Jahr mit Displayschaden hinüber, und das bei sehr vorsichtigen Personen (mit Schutzhülle!).
Excerpt: Doffe ellende; ik had een Kobo GLO die op een maandagmorgen van de band was gerold. Twee dagen in huis gehad, alleen bezig geweest met resetten, resetten en nog eens resetten. Geen boek gelezen, ding liep continu vast.
