An easy-to-use e-reader

Functionality is great. If you're a purchaser of e-books, you can save thousands to this device on just the 8GB memory. I love how I can request books directly from Overdrive using my public library membership on the device itself. It is a bit of a shame, though, that you can't see what number you are in the queue when you put a hold on an item. You are only notified when the book becomes available for you to borrow. The display also gets a bit funny when you turn pages -- it's like it briefly pixelates and flashes from dark to light, but I wonder if that's something intentional and I'm just missing the point of it. But a very easy quirk to...view more

A great E-Reader

Brought as an e-reader after a lot of research, lives up to its rep, would recommend, as easy to use, set up and buy books. Recommend you get a good cover which as you close it it saves your page. Kobo prices for books are good especially if you go VIP ($10 a year) just pick and choose as the deals are offered. Is to read lighter than most books, easy to turn the page, great in any light so far.
Sadly no option for newspapers or magazines

Nice sized e-reader

Bought on special prior to Lockdown2020 and it's been great - access to local library books via Overdrive and able to sideload epubs from my computer too. Haven't run out of anything to read yet.
Battery life is excellent and the e-ink screen really feels like a rest from screen time and has minimal glare for outside in the sunshine.

Overdrive is awesome

Bought a kindle paperwhite 4 but found out that it doesn't have overdrive. So return it and bought this one instead. Best decision ever. With overdrive I can borrow books from the local library. Save me time, money and trouble into purchasing books.

My first e-reader, seems pretty good.

Seems intuitive, and no issues so far. Light. Bought it specifically to be compatible with borrowing from my library. There is one limitation on synching, though, which the e-Library team looked into and said that they "... discovered last year that an eBook has to be available in the Kobo store and OverDrive for it to be synched through Kobo wifi... it has to be the same ISBN available on both." and So, it sounds like this is unfortunately the default situation with Libby and Kobo Overdrive not automatically synching. But if the e-reader is the only device you read on then I imagine it's not a problem?

Wellington readerExcellent, straight-forward e-reader

This is a great, no-nonsense e-reader.  I bought it to replace my much-loved and well-used Kobo-Glo, which finally gave up the ghost.  [Note - take care when inserting and removing the charging cable.]  The front-lit screen is perfect for maintaining a clear page without any glare - in bright light, dim light and at night with no light.  At night the light colour changes to a sort-of orange colour, which I don't mind at all.  Works well with e-books borrowed from the library (which covers virtually all my reading) - coupled with Adobe Digital Editions as a transfer platform.  I recommend the cover accessory.  Apart from protecting the...view more

Why I chose the Kobo over the Kindle

After doing a lot of research my choices came down to the Kindle Paperwhite 4 and the Kobo Clara HD, both are similarly priced and offer many of the basic functions you'd want in an e-reader. What makes the Kobo stand out is that you are able to adjust the colour temperature of the screen, I personally prefer a warmer screen for reading as I find it easier on my eyes and it is something that the Kindle does not offer. Furthermore, the overall footprint of the Kobo is smaller than the Kindle, which aids in portability when I'm out and about.

High approval rating

I like the ease of reading at night as it has a soft orange glow. Easy to hold. Downloads library books through Overdrive via wifi. This is why I much prefer Kobo to Kindle. You can also purchase books as well.

New to e-readers

After considering it for a while, I finally decided to try an e-reader. My friend highly recommended the Kobo. I researched it and read reviews and comparisons with the Kindle. I am not disappointed! Set up is easy once you are familiar with the menu. Clear view, great auto lighting feature, many book. Oh so many books!!
