  • easy to use

    by on

    light and straight forward ereader, have not tried out the water resistant features yet, does everything else it is supposed to do, no issues

  • Had potential but old technology

    by on

    Angus & Robertson service and comparative price were excellent but the product is very disappointing. Publicity is based on weight, waterproofing and screen but nowhere is it revealed that, unlike our phones or tablet, this device cannot access our library's collections without using a computer as an intermediary. Given that the purpose of the purchase was to use it while travelling to save taking a tablet, this lack makes it virtually useless. A loooong conversation with the help desk was needed to elicit the admission that the kobo lacks the capacity either to download library books direct from the internet or to use a smart phone for downloading. If you also carry a computer when travelling it is probably quite good. Otherwise wait for a major upgrade.

  • better than my old ereader by far

    by on

    This device is better than my old Sony e-reader by some distance. Most especially the back lighting that alters for the time of day so I can read with the lights off and not suffer eye strain.
