Overal product it's what you would spect from any great e-reader
30 December 2013
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: The kobo reader is exactly that--A basic, no frills reader. When it arrived I wasn't too sure I would like it but I loaded it up and took it on vacation anyway. It was perfect! I already have an iPad so I didn't need Internet or 3G or anything, I just need something I can read in sunlight.
