    I only got this this week, but I felt I would leave a review with some initial thoughts. The screen is great and easy to read, but I have a couple problems with the hardware. The power button on the side is really squishy, I never know if I've pressed it enough to do anything, and the usb charging port is low quality, it takes a tremendous amount of force to remove the cable after I'm done charging. A more neutral point is that bigger isn't always better. I read a lot lying on my side, and the screen for this has gotten big enough that it's not easy to do that with one hand.


  • Best ebook reader I owned.

    The 8 inch screen gives you the possibility to enjoy anime and PDF files, which I I never did with my kindle. The screen light also is great. After 4 weeks Nothing bothered me yet.

    I purchased a Kobo Forma last week. I really like the larger screen along with it being thinner and lighter. I also like the way the back light changes with the time so its easier on your eyes reading at night. I would recommend it to anyone! I am passing my olderr Kobo to a friend as its still the best before I got the Forma.
