Battery is not replaceable.

  • 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. * Kobo Glo takes longer to boot than Kindle Paperwhite does.

not as library friendly as you would hope...

  • 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.

Not As Good As I'd Hoped

SLW, Amazon

  • 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. They seem often to bear no relationship to the books one buys; and sometimes they defy all logic.

OK but not as user friendly as Kindle

  • 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.

Overall I feel disappointed

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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. All the descriptions for on the bookstore seem to be in US-English. Why is it so hard to buy something in this country in your own Language?

  • Summary: werkelijk een verschrikkelijk product. heb een aantal jaren zeer prettig de Sony Ereader gebruikt, dat is een wonder van eenvoud en betrouwbaarheid vergeleken met deze Kobo. - batterijduur (zonder verlichting) 10 maal korter dan van de Sony - dagen (echt waar) bezig geweest om mijn bestaande boeken over te zetten naar de Kobo - allerlei problemen met DRM-beveiliging - agressieve winkel en email-campagnes - nu 2 maal een kadobon in de mail gehad van Kobo, beide werken...

  • Summary: Nadat mijn Kobo touch totaal was vastgelopen, kreeg ik een nieuwe vanwege de garantie. Maar ik heb geld bijgelegd en de Kobo Glo aangeschaft. Inmiddels veel spijt. Hij werkt verschrikkelijk traag, zeer irritant.. Als je de lettergrootte te snel verandert, loopt hij onverbiddelijk vast.
