Summary: I received a Kobo Mini for Xmas (2012), and I've read on it pretty much every night since then. I wanted a basic, e-ink, not backlit (or sidelit) reader that was lightweight and easy to use. At the time, the Mini was a less expensive option than the basic Kindle and the basic Nook.
Summary: This is a great little reader if you can find it on sale. I managed to pick one up for the $39 July special. Maybe I am cheap but $90 is overpriced. It is very small -- I have seen phones bigger than this thing. But it does make a nice add on to my regular reader.
Summary: i got this to replace my old original kobo after the screen got broken during a deployment. it's a really nice ereader for the money. downloading books is easy from both your computer and straight from the ereader, you can adjust fonts, font size, spacing, and margins to fit your taste, and even...
Summary: So far Kobo.mini has been behaving itself and I am.glad. I used to have Kobo Touch and in 6 months the screen.hung and I could not do anything with it. Kobo Mini is way much sensitive and does not hang as much. the only prob is sometimes the pages flip backwards instead of forward.
An affordable eInk version of a small paperback book.

Summary: I bought a kobo mini to read at the gym. It's the perfect size. Pocketable. I do recommend changing the screen refresh rate to 1. The font stays crisp that way. No eye fatigue with the small screen, I usually read for about an hour at a time.
Summary: I bought this at BB before Christmas when the white mini was on sale for $49. I can say I would not pay $79 for it but at $49 it is a fair price. I like the size and lightweightness of it. I do not have the problems of ghosting etc that others are mentioning. Mine works fine.
Handy little device, just make sure you read about it first

Excerpt: I've had numerous Kindle's over the year's and after my last one's light broke, I decided to try something else. The Kobo Aura was on offer at £79.99 at Argos, (september 2015) ad I decided to go for it, I looked around first and read review's etc.
Pros: "how light it is", "Micro Sd card can be added", "Back light"
Cons: "Size matters", "Cannot transfer folder (grouped) books have to catergories via the device", "Doesnt read Pdf files very well"
