Summary: a great way to buzy myself with new books, even those newly published and comics (manga) of course. it matters because there are books that is not being sold in my country. The downside is, i just don't like the interface that much. Kobo needs to improve on this, or i think they have and it's just me and my jap.version Glo is not being updated by Kobo. They say one is coming early this year. Still, to be able to read is much more important so i'm glad to have this.
Summary: Great contrast, competitive amongst top e-readers such as kindle paperwhite and sony t3. The frontlight is quite uniform except for the barely shadowy bottom which i hear is also the case with other frontlit ereaders. sometimes when the frontlight is on pages seem to have a blueish tint. Dictionary is not good, nowhere near kindle or sony.
Summary: I bought it after a long research, so I've had no surprises so far. It's a good alternative compared to Kindle paperwhite and Nook Glow. I'm without space at home to have new paper books so an ebook reader is a valid choice to save space, money and a good excuse not to lend it to a friend, cause you know that when you lend a book it may never come back :) .
Summary: easy too read, the ink technology is great. the light option makes it possible to read at night :) the battery life however is somewhat short and the screen freezes at times. It is also inconvenient to move between bookmarks in the same book and for some reason it restarts the reading process back to 0% if you finish the book and press on it again.
Summary: Fantastic screen, reasonably good hardware, updates make the device worse about 75% of the time. I've had two e-readers before this (an old Sony pocket 5" which was touch, and the modern non-paperwhite Kindle) and overall, I have to say that this only beats the Kindle by a small margin, entirely because of the software. The problem: updates are entirely unpredictable, and often make the device worse, reintroducing old issues instead of fixing new ones.
Summary: I've had my kobo reader for a few months and I'm very pleased (during that time I've charged it once or twice which tells you something about how long the battery lasts!). It is super handy, I keep it in my purse at all times, and since I got it I've read more than ever. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because I think the app for smartphones is not that great (I usually buy my books through the app and then download them to the reader).
everything fine, but not ergonomics is not comfortable

Summary: generally i love the product (the light, comfort for the eyes, letters- all this is good), but it is a little bit slow and the main button on the corner of the screen does not work all the time, so sometimes it make me nervous!
Summary: I have the Kindle Paperwhite which I absolutely love. I used the Ipad mini to read my other books I had purchased from Kobo, Nook and Sony but the Paperwhite front light definitely spoiled me. I bought the Kobo Glo from an Independent Bookstore in my area so I could read my Kobo and Sony purchases. Where I think the Kindle Paperwhite is the top ereader, the Kobo Glo (in my opinion) is running a very close second. The things I don't like about the Kobo Glo: 1.
