Kobo Glo eReader - Black. 4.3 5 23 23
Love my kobo glo This is a present for my hubby as I love mine so much. He has the basic one but wanted one with backlight like mine 13 August 2014
As expected no more, no less easy to use and just what I wanted 07 May 2014
Replacement for broken Kindle After breaking his Kindle accidentally, my husband's 1st thoughts were to replace with the same thing. I asked him what he would want to upgrade the original. A brighter screen that you can turn up depending on light levels. So he researched for a replacement. So far so good, no problems at all to report AND considerably cheaper than Kindle. Ideal for those who don't want fancy apps just to use an e-reader, the Kobo fits the bill beautifully. Would recommend. 28 January 2014
Excellent product but a pain to set up The reader does everything it should according to the spec but the setup guide has steps missing and takes a very long time to configure itself. Persistence is required to get it up and running but it is worth it. The touch screen feature can be a little unresponsive at times. 15 January 2014
a cracking reader This reader is just as good as the kindle my wife has with the added advantage that: I am able to borrow ebooks from my local library (Stockport) for free. The kindle doesn't support spun files. Also - for those withvery large library you can add extra memory. 09 January 2014
