Very nice

I have always avoided e-readers because I still prefer physical books and usually prefer to print out pdf documents rather than reading them on desk-top or tablet. But with the (temporary?) close-down of the Wellington City Library due to earthquake risk, and now the shut-down of all libraries due to Covid Level 4, I finally bit the bullet and bought a Kobo e-reader (2 days before shut-down!). Thought I would only use it after I had read every book left in the house, but I have been very pleasantly surprised. Simple to set up to connect to your local library (or to Gutenberg and other ebook organisations), clear and easy to read text,...view more

Good

I am quite happy with the ereader. The only downsides I have noticed are that PDFs containing some characters such as a colon (":") cannot be copied via USB and book names in the catalogue show PDF title and not the name of the file, which isn't always very meaningful. But those are pretty minor. The screen size is just enough for reading regular PDFs in the landscape orientation.

Awesome e-reader

Great tech, comfy to hold and can download free to view library books. Worth the money!

Nice reader, a bit pricey

I think this is probably a better reader than the Kindle paperwhite - I have both.
The difference is the kindle won't allow you to read NZ library ebooks for free, whereas this will.
If you would rather read ebooks from the library for free, then get this. If you have to buy the latest books, then get the Kindle.
I like how this Kobo has both the option of turning pages with a swipe, as well as with a button, and you can configure reading with the buttons on the right or the left.

Surprisingly good but a bit pricey

I didn't really want one of these, being a Luddite by nature and enjoying the feel and smell of a good book, but needs must and with no other means to get a read I had to bite the technology bullet. Now I really like it. So light, so convenient, and the dictionary function is a great help. Bit of a mission working out how to download books from the library but got it sussed now. I'd recommend it if you have a spare $

Comfortable to use

I've had a Kindle Paperwhite for years, and never realised just how short on screen real estate it was. This Kobo is nice and big without being overly so, and while I haven't tested it yet, the waterproof aspect is certainly something I'm looking forward to. The screen itself is quality e-ink, just as I've come to expect from these e-readers.

Best Buy of the Year

This is a great machine that makes reading so enjoyable and delightful. I’ve had this for three weeks now and find it easily living up to its promise. I have previously owned a Kindle and it more than matches that, especially as you can read your library ebooks on it. The screen is very easy on the eye, it’s lightweight and doesn’t smack you in the face too badly when you fall asleep reading. It’s got an inbuilt light and a yellow fade kicks in at nighttime to reduce the blue light effect. The screen rotates to landscape if you want, you can tap the screen or push the button to turn pages, and it has a great battery life. I haven’t tested the...view more

Mostly good

It works though is a little slow in responsiveness. Don't believe the battery hype - "Go weeks without charging". Charged mine up less than two days ago and it is already down to 10%. Not particularly happy about that.

Works fine

Only issue is the WiFi connectivity is not reliable. Sometimes it's good, other times it's flaky. I know it's not my router as the phones and tablets work fine. Other than that, a great reader.

Massive improvement over Kobo Clara

Replaced my original Kobo Clara with this model, which is a delight. Larger screen (but still fits in back pocket) and easier page turning. Well worth the price difference.

Beautiful Gift for Mum

The KOBO Libra H2O eReader works exactly how described, and even arrived earlier than scheduled. Quite light which I didn't expect. Made a great gift for my mum's birthday!
