Good reader, tablet and gadget :)

  • 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.

Not a good e-reader

  • 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: 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: Got this on sale, came to like 110 plus 10 for the 3 year extended warranty. It feels good to the touch and is responsive. I use a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, so you have a point of reference.

Great bang for your money!

Ragan22, Walmart

  • 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.
