Greatest gadget I have

I love my ereader, I have had it for about 6 months and I find that I am using it all the time. I like that I can get books from the Kobo website as well as get ebooks from my library. I also like that I can put in knitting/crochet patterns for when I go on trips, and I love the fact that I can type up anything that I want add pictures to it save it in pdf format and upload it to my reader.

Sweet ereader

i'm loving my Kobo touch. it's fast, lightweight, small enough to hold in one hand and so easy to read.

Pretty Good

Nice and light, easy to read screen. Only thing, touch response is a little laggy but I'm comparing it to my IPAD2 which is probably not fair. Highly recommend.

Love it!!

I have numerous tablets, including an IPad & android tablets. I love this especially since the batteries last so much longer. Plus, it is so light.

Must buy for all readers out there!

I am a big reader and I can spend hours reading in one sitting with no eye strain because of the E Ink technology. The setting features are handy as well because you can choose from a handful of font types and can adjust your font size. You are only able to purchase books from Kobo but they have a fairly large selection of free books (mostly classics), in fact I have only actually purchased one book and I've had the reader for 6 months. The only complaint that I would have is that I would not use this reader to view magazines due to the fact that there is no colour but there's a new Kobo for that. The Reading Life is very enjoyable - there are many awards to unlock and it's pretty inspiring when you get the non-invasive pop-up that you've reached a new one. If you are buying an E-reader for the sole purpose of reading this is a great option.

Best eReader on the market

I've had this product for a while and I've found it pretty great. They've done a few firmware updates to put in more features. Pros: - Great screen, looks like paper, reads really well once you get used to the e-ink flashing a bit when you turn the page. You can actually set it to flash less if you want, I don't think any other ereaders offer this (they flash every page) - Touch screen is awesome. Tried the kindle and the older Kobo Wifi and can't imagine how people can use the device without a touch screen. The on-screen keyboard is functional and does what it needs to do well. - Reading LIfe - cool feature makes reading a bit more enjoyable. - Battery life - I hardly ever have to charge the thing - I didn't even notice they had changed how the low-battery picture in the top left looks! - Buying books is a snap. - Really nice, simple interface. It's like the iPhone of eReaders. - You can use it with library books - although I usually buy books. Cons: - Had to set it up using a computer before I could really use it. No big deal I guess I had to do that for my iPad too, but would have been cool if I could do it over Wifi. Verdict: Best ereader on the market (and I've tried a few). Definitely recommended.

Good

I found that the Kobo is a good reader. It's not perfect, but it's good enough. with the recent update to the firmware, it gets some improvements. Certainly, the PDFs are not his strong point, but you can always convert your info to epub and will look just good. If you begin looking for epub instead of pdf, you will then start to love epub and to hate pdf since it is a format for producing a printer output, not for reading because the text doesn't flow as in other formats. It stays fixed and it's full of line breaks. Buying an ebook reader is better than buying a tablet. It's less expensive, you focus on reading and it doesn't cause eye strain.

Kobo Touch

It's a good eReader if you're sure you'll never get any eBooks from any other source but Kobo Store and if will never need to read anything in any other format that EPUB (forget about reading PDF files on Kobo - even Kobos's manual downloaded from their website in PDF will look awful in Kobo). Kobo is apparently trying to hook you into buying eBooks just from their online store. Sure you can buy or borrow eBooks from anywhere else (in supported formats - EPUB or PDF), but in case of EPUB you won't be able to use built-in dictionary, and in case of PDF reading it will be a real bad experience - Kobo doesn't use Adobe Reader Mobile edition, which uses "re-flow" function to render text correctly on the screen, even when you adjust the size of the text. Kobo treats PDF just as an image the page - if the text is too small, you can zoom-in, but you're in effect zooming entire page, not just the text - so you will have to scroll left/right, up/down to see entire page. This makes also turning to next PDF page troublesome - you will have to first scroll all the way to the right to see page turning arrow (swiping with your finger through the screen just scrolls PDF document). If you are sure you won't miss lack of dictionary for EPUBs other than from Kobo store, and if you can invest some time into converting your favored PDFs into EPUB format using free Calibre software, then go for Kobo Touch. I didn't - returned my Kobo and got Sony PRS-650 instead - much better experience!
