    I bought this because I wanted a daily use eReader that I could commute with then I could leave my expensive one at home. This thing more then delivered and has quickly become my primary reading device. Books purchased via Kobo appear right on the device. Then I used Calibre to put the other books on. If you have any eReader and you don't know about Calibre, Google it Now! I really like how all the books show up as book covers on a shelf and when the device goes to sleep the cover of the book you are reading becomes the screensaver. The only drawback I can think of is the fact that the navigation button is only on the one side so you are limited as to how you hold the device, but it is very light weight.

    I am an avid reader and when seeing the Amazon Kindle commercials come on all the time, it convinced me that maybe I should get an ereader. I went to Walmart and of course they didn't have a big selection. Just the Kobo, so I bought it on a whim since I really wanted one. So far I love the eink screen; very easy on the eyes. I don't think it is at all complicated getting it to work and understanding how to work it. I wouldn't recommend this to older folks who aren't tech savvy unless they have someone to help them with it. That's just my opinion though. (I have a mom who I know I need to explain it too.) The only things I don't like about it.. - Walmart only comes with black when you can get it else where in different colors. - When you are turning the pages, it is slow and it scrambles the words for like a second, which I find annoying. - I do not like the directional pad. When you are pressing a direction you can press accept (the middle of the keypad) on accident. That's about it. :-)

    Just bought the Kobo eReader and even my friends (who own the Kindle and Nook) agree that the Kobo is the best value for the price. You can customize how you want the screen to look, it has 100 free books pre-installed (about 30 of which I actually want to read), and it was extremely easy to set up and use.

    I am really enjoying this E-reader! My husband had gotten a Kindle for his Birthday, so I was comparing the Kobo to that. While it doesn't have some of the same features as the Kindle, it does have some that I like better. It is easy to use, and I love how light it is. I did have a little trouble with setting it up with our wireless, but once I figured it out...it's been fine. It does not have the keyboard feature, like the Kindle, but I don't really mind that. I've been able to shop for books, and LOVE the fact that it comes with 100 classics already loaded on it!! WOW! VERY happy with my Kobo!!

    It's lighter than the Kindle or the Nook. It's more compact (literally the size of a mass market paperback) than the Kindle or the Nook. It's more comfortable to hold than the Kindle or the Nook. And unlike the Kindle, you can download free e-book loans from your local library. What else do you need?

    After having it for several weeks, I'm not quite sure how I managed life without a Kobo. Granted, I am a bibliophile with a serious collection of photography e-books to manage, but I didn't realize how much having an e-Reader would simplify my life. Whether I need to entertain the kids, re-read a tip in a new photography e-book I downloaded, or take a moment to read something uplifting and inspiring, everything I need is packed into one lightweight and easy to use e-Reader. The navigation buttons are fairly simple to use. I love that there aren't a ton of complicated menus. I also love that I can shop for a book directly from my Kobo and download it for immediate use. I needed something to read to the kids the other day, bought the new Junie B. Jones e-book and was reading away to them in seconds. The screen doesn't give me any eye fatigue at all, which is really wonderful after the eye strain I was getting from reading all those photography e-books on my laptop. (Quick tip for reading pdf e-books - you can switch the Kobo to landscape format and enlarge the page for ease of reading. I learned that today when I was reading a new e-book I downloaded and saw that it was formatted with very small text and was set up for reading in landscape. It is a really nice option and made reading the e-book very enjoyable.) I am also pretty pleased with the length of time my Kobo stays charged. I can read for hours before I need to plug it in. *I am a Kobo Community Manager via ShesConnected. I received this e-Reader from Kobo several weeks ago and gave it a thorough test drive. While I did receive it as a gift, I honestly fell in love with it and take it everywhere with me.

    Pretty simple product, no distractions, very pure in its purpose. Does what it's meant to do. Wish it had the ability to go to a certain page, but I imagine that's something they can add later. Overall very satisfied with it, thinking of getting one for my mother due to it's simplicity. The others just seem too gadgety for her.

    I bought this ereader to read library books from the Phoenix Greater Digital library. I own a Kindle 3, and think that reading library books in epub or pdf format is not available at this time, but maybe soon? As an avid reader, I like the following features a) simplicity, this is justabout reading b) comfortable reading gorgeous e ink screen c) page turns are faster than my kindle d)my 40 year old eyes are comfortable with the fonts. Kobo software is easy to install, and battery life is acceptable, (10 days) but not exceptional. Wireless features make it easy to sync downloaded books. I may get the kobo touch, due out next week. In terms of usage tips, if Kobo is not showing up in Windows when attached to the USB cord, choose manage library, and it will be recognized.

    Ok, this e-reader doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive e-readers. That said, I'm glad. I bought this e-reader for my mother. She has one bad hand and this e-reader is light and easy for her to handle. It doesn't have a key pad on it, so I think that helps make it easier to function. It does what its suppose to do, hold and show e-books. She adores it. I'm going to be ordering myself one. I planned to get myself a Kindle, but I changed my mind. This one is perfect!
