Overal product it's what you would spect from any great e-reader

Summary: This KOBO reader is a really great and cheap option for those who just want their e-reader to display books on screen and that's it. It has an inside market and e-magazines but i mainly use it for book reading. It doesn't come with all that fancy crap (browser, music player, other useless features). Batery is really great and this reader is compatible with .epub formats, which is great for my calibre manager. It's really cheap and does it's job.
Summary: I have the basic Kobo e-reader and upgraded to this back-lit model so I could read at night, in bed, and not disturb my wife by having the main light on. The screen display quality is very good and the range of adjustments available let me setup the unit to my liking. It is much lighter than my iPad and easier to use when lying down. I like the slide on/off switch.
Summary: So I pretty much purchased this because I am a cheapskate and not interested in spending too much money on a device that I may or may not like. I like refurbished items as the price point is usually perfect and the quality of the devices I normally buy are like new. I can justify spending $37 bucks and taking a chance on an older refurbished ereader as my luck so far has been pretty good and haven't recieved any lemons to date.
Buen lector para iniciarse en el mundo de los ebooks

Summary: El lector KOBO es muy util, ligero y manejable. Tiene lo que denominan tinta electrónica, que viene a ser el cristal líquido de los relojes casio de antaño, pero permite leer perfectamente; eso sí con luz ambiente. No se ilumina la pantalla, gracias a eso consume muy poca batería (lleva más de 1 semana con casi una hora de lectura diaria y sigue la batería al máximo).
Summary: Uhhh... as simple and good as this is.... I dont get why ANYONE invests more than $75.00!!! The ONLY things I could ask for that are different are 3 things.... 1.) Faster to navigate the menu system (about 6x's as fast) 2.) User replaceable batteries 3.) Metal (scratch resistant) housing Other than that... plug it in... let it charge look simple... text looks great... formatting is fine.... just go.... ereader.... if you really do read...
Summary: This ereader is very good for the money. It's not quite as easy to use as a straight touch screen because of the buttons. The main reason for the purchase is because it's not a propriaty ereader, therefore easier to transfer books from the computer, which occasionally I purchase to.
Summary: My review comes from owning my Kobo wireless reader for 1 year. It really has gotten a bad rep compared to other e-readers such as the Kindle (which I also own). I'm writing this to provide some helpful suggestions & to inform others of what I've learned from using the Kobo. The Kobo is great for what it's made for which is to read books! I know that the description says that you can use PDF documents on the device.
Summary: This is a basic, no-frills e-reader. So please dont compare apples and oranges. It has been a little over 2 months since I bought my Kobo Wi-Fi at a Borders closeout sale. What attracted me to this were two points: 1. It was at a 50% discount so I got it for half the price of a kindle [or kindle keyboard as it is called now] 2. I was told that the local libraries have eBooks for Kobo and Nook but not for the Kindle.
