  • Very Good eReader
    Reviewed by Hani - August 25, 2020

    Only had it a short time (purchased July 30, 2020) and so far its been very good. Perfect size and weight. Several options available to customize the display and the text formatting. Battery life is quite good, easily got a couple of weeks of use between recharges. It recharges to full capacity within 2 to 3 hours. Of course the battery time is dependent on how much you are reading and if the back light is on and what level it is set to. Mostly use it to read books from the Public Library, easy to search and checkout books through Overdrive which the Kobo devices directly support. Rakuten, the makers of Kobo, own Overdrive. Overall I recommend this device.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • LOVE IT!
    Reviewed by Sue - October 3, 2019

    This is my 4th Kobo since they initially came out in 2010. They keep adding and improving the reading experience. It's so light! Easy to hold. And with a large screen. With the total rotation feature,you can hold it in your right hand or if you're a leftie like me,in your left hand - or if you want to read portrait style you can do that too. The customisable font is a terrific feature - it can be fine-tuned by weight even. The lighting feature is quite nifty,going from cool light to warm light (easier for before bed) as per your settings. This ereader is SO customisable! And there are no ads pushed to you. You can access your wishlist and the Kobo store with ease. It's a great ereader and I'm so glad I bought it. :)

  • Great but pricey
    Reviewed by Mike - August 22, 2020

    This is a great e-reader. The form and weight are just right. LOVE the Pocket integration and the ability to borrow books from public libraries is really useful. The front lighting on mine is fine. My only gripe is that it sucks at reading PDF's !! I have an OLD Sony 6" PRS-T1 that came with 'Adobe Reader Mobile' installed on it. That allowed it to flow text, enlarge and even change the font on .PDF's.. I guess KOBO doesn't want to pay the licensing fee?? Since I purchased it there have already been two software updates released. Nice to see them continue supporting and evolving there product.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
