Summary: I have a nook and an iPad but i like to read at the pool. Neither of these allow me to do this in the sunshine so a friend at the pool recommended the kobo reader. Although very affordable I THOUGHT it was touch screen and the small button to change screens or to turn pages is an annoyance and each day I try to use it after using for less than two hours it requires my computer to charge it back so Ivan read again. The user manual says battery life is ten hours.
Summary: The Good: I really like the size and thickness of this reader.. Battery life seems very good Easy to add books (I use calibre) Not bad in dim lighting Different font sizes The Bad: Every time I add books it looses all setting memories like which books I've read and which book I'm reading, some times even if forgets the book I'm reading it does remember the page I was on but some times it forgets that also This isn't deal breaker but it will cause me to look at other...
Summary: I got the Kobo e-reader at half price while Border's was going out of business. It doesnt have a lot of frills, but it works. The battery life doesnt last nearly as long as they claim, it last about a week without use before it needs to be charged. The 10,000 page turns is a fabrication, but it still lasts for a long time. I got the Kobo over the Kindle because it supports the open e-book format, EPUB. However, it seems to struggle with some EPUB books.
Summary: I own three other eReaders and this one is the "slowest" of the bunch. I loaded some public domain books through Calibre (free eBook management program) and it took 5 minutes to process around 30 books. The software that came with the device is very basic and doesn't even allow deleting the included books. Also, with all my other eReaders, including the Kindle, I can simply copy public domain ebook files to the device directly.
Summary: I just bought this e-reader for its price. I wanted it to use it with a collection of books in ePub format that I already had (it's a great way to carry your library with you, at least that was my intention). When reading from one of my books I wanted to use dictionary, then I noticed that it's not available for your own books. An email to Kobo tech support confirmed that the dictionary only works with their books (bad!).
Summary: This is a pretty good case for what it is. Offers good protection for a cheap price Pros: Hard case to protect against scratches Has inside pocket to put small things Pretty simple design Cons: Buttons are hard to use when Kobo is strapped in The straps cover the blue light on the Kobo Overall its a pretty decent case. I bought it so my reader wouldn't get scratched while in my backpack so it does a good job of that.
