Summary: Had a Kobo Touch Ereader previously and loved it so much, decided to upgrade to Kobo Glow. Love the inbuilt light, can now read anywhere, anytime. Battery life is great and the wi-fi synch works well. Recommend getting the sleep cover as well.
Summary: I purchased my Kobo eReader because I was reading books on my iPad, but found the battery was running out too quickly. With the Kobo eReader, the battery life is fantastic! It lasts for many weeks, depending on how often it is used, and if the backlight is on or not.
Summary: My first clue should've been when they were on sale last June. I had no major problems with it until just this last month, of course when the warranty runs out.

Summary: I got the koboglo as a gift. The power button quick working before 21 days was up, so I was able to get a replacement on warranty. The second one works well. The screen is large enough to read comfortably, you can adjust font size and brightness. I'm still learning how to use all of the options.
Excerpt: I bought a kobo glo e reader mid Dec 2013 I have taken it back to the shop three times so far as it has frozen on me, the shop fixed it up and updated it from their wifi system , I have spent more time taking it back than reading it, kobo wanted a photo of its condition to be sent to them even...
Summary: The Kobo Glo looked excellent on paper and this reader proved excellent indeed as I used it. However, the screen of my first unit stopped working after a few months and Kobo refused to exchange it. I bought another Kobo Glo which developed a similar problem after sometime.
Summary: I like this eReader a lot, but I'm on my 3rd of these eReaders now. The first 2 crapped out the same way - parts of the screen no longer worked. So if you buy one of these, get the extended warranty. You'll be using it.
