Summary: I had to return it as it would not connect to wifi, but liked it enough to order a touch Kobo ereader from Kobo store, my only regret is that I was trying to get a bargin at $35.99 when I should have purchased the "touch" at 79.99.
Summary: Customer service is abysmal Updates are not automatic or even advised, when Kobo release an update the first you know about it is any new books you purchase don't work. Customer service feed you incorrect information to try to fix the problem, don't reply to your emails for days and expect you to...
Summary: I have wasted several hours trying to get the product to work, it has been unable to log into Wi-fi at several locations, unit freezes repeatedly, instructions are not very clear, company website is unintelligible and difficult to maneuver.
Summary: Although the KOBO works adequatly, the service is non existant. I have service questions that have not been answered in two weeks. Now that I have experenced the KOBO, I would suggest buying a Kindal or Sony who have a more reliable company backing them up.

Summary: Ok, so I got a kobo ereader (in light purple - very pretty!) as a gift for Christmas 2010. Even though I wanted a kindle, I decided to have a positive outlook for the kobo. Well....the ereader itself is not user friendly. It does not bookmark the last page I was on.
Summary: I've owned the 1st & 3rd generation Kindles, the Kobo, and the Nook Touch (briefly; I returned it). The thing I didn't like about the first generation Kindle was that it was difficult to read it while holding it with one hand.
Summary: I am very uspet about Kobos lack of support. Kobo advertised a great Dictionary that is embedded with the Kobo E reader. It was also advertised that the Kobo ereader works with open format .epub files.

Summary: I purchase a KOBO Wireless after Christmas as a present to myself. To be honest the Kobo does function pretty well for the most part. My problem with it which is why it only got one star is that the Kobo is only compatible with 4 brands of SDHC cards even though the Kobo is advertised as being...
