Summary: I can't believe this thing is $60. I wouldn't even sell mine second hand on ebay because I didn't want to ruin someone's life. About the best that can be said for it is it runs drm free books that can be acquired from any source. The worst is that it's a fiddly little witch with a b that has eaten up two usb cords, costing me more than its worth, and will lock up so that even factory settings is no longer an option.
Summary: Although I am a big fan of Kobo eReaders, I had quite the problem with this one: upon downloading a new book, all content in the new book disappeared; apparently the update didn't take & after 3 1/2 hours of personal time with various techs, it was resolved. The sender did furnish me with a partial refund of $15, which was very welcome. The jury is still out on this reader: I bought a 2nd book and all book content disappeared ..
Summary: Had my Kobo for a year and a half. LOVED it! Easy to use (didn't expect Touch, so the direction pad was fine). Plenty of fonts to choose from. Expandable storage to hold thousands of books. Using Adobe Digital Editions to transfer borrowed library books to the Kobo was straight-forward and simple. The only drawback -- no ability to load your own books (or library books) to the Kobo Library "cloud" to keep synched between devices. Oh well.
Summary: Our Kobo e-Reader lasted about 7 months, with light use, until the screen broke. Working with customer service to evaluate the issue, after 1 day they quickly agreed this issue was covered under the warranty, the company promised a replacement device. It took more than 5 weeks, plus several e-mails and phone calls, to receive the replacement: a refurbished device sent from Canada.
Summary: In September I bought a Kobo wireless. I like the fact that it is basic and supports many ebook formats, but I have had several problems with their tech support. In December the ereader stopped working, so I emailed them. It took over a week before they responded. I had also called them and the person that I spoke to said that they would process my request ASAP. Then I sent the ereader away. It took just under a month for a refurbished ereader to be sent back to me.
Summary: I really liked this ereader when I first got it. It did everything I wanted, which wasn't much. I just wanted to read epub format books. First I downloaded the library program from Kobo, which was terrible. It basically will not allow you add books not purchased through Kobo, so I got rid of that library and downloaded Adobe Digital Editions. I thought everything was fine, and it was for a while.
Summary: This WAS a good ereader it was way better than the litterati(which only lasted 1 week before going blank)but when the screen went out i was sad because i had liked it so i called kobo and they sent be a replacement but when the replacements screen went out and i had to PAY to ship it to canada for them to fix it i was not happy! pros: battery life (about 1 week) weight(the most lightweight ereader on the market!
Summary: I have read 6 books using my new Kobo eink ebook reader. When used as a stand alone device, 30% of the time it takes 1 second to change a page, 69% of the time it takes 6 seconds, and 1% of the time, it does not change the page. This is true regardless of the pressure and direction applied on the rocker switch. When placed in sleep mode, about 10% of the time it fails to return to the last page read.
Excerpt: Out of curiosity I go to both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Guess what? It’s available on both of those sites. Too bad I don’t have a Nook or Kindle. This scenario happens with 2 other books I’m looking for over the course of a week. What’s the point of having an eReader if you can’t find what you want? I am not happy with this device, although I really like the eReader concept for reading on-the-go. I’ve decided to sell my Kobo and buy a Kindle instead.
