Summary: Got this as a replacement for my Kindle Paperwhite. I still have Kindle, but wanted something that will let me use other apps - like Scribd. I was assuming I will sell it or return if I won’t like it, but I was nicely surprised. It has great, clear screen, which is easy to look at.
Summary: Great little tablet, however the charging port will quickly fail and spare parts are not available. Kobo customer service is very poor so you'll be sick with a broken tablet. Highly recommend you look elsewhere.
Summary: Bought this to update my Kobo Glo. Good as a tablet but rubbish as an e-reader. Very sensitive to the touch. Font kept changing for no reason. Have to actually select an aspect as this keeps alternating from landscape to portrait.
Summary: not worth buying, i bought mine 2 years ago so out of warranty, used to work great until the micro usb charging port came off the ribbon inside the device, when that happens its the end of your £100 book reading tablet,Kobo DO NOT SUPPLY spare parts, i and many people on the net have searched...
Summary: Avoid--same problem as many others. Used it 4/5 times in 18 months.Will not turn on--Kobo customer [don't] care are a total waste of time and [a great deal] of effort. Out of warranty they simply do not want to know even though clearly a common problem.
Excerpt: I was looking to upgrade to a better reader, but having other tablet capabilities built in makes the Arc a great all around bargain!! I would have like a rear camera, but for the price, still a great deal.
