Good E-Reader

A near perfect eReader

Kobo Aura One

from Good E-Reader

All the little extras, from the larger screen, warmer lighting, and proper chapter page counts, have really brought the joy back into ereading, and instead of buyer’s remorse, I find myself wanting to share my pleasure and experience with others.

Exceptional water-resistance and good night-time reading features

Kobo Aura One

from Tech Advisor

The Kobo Aura One is way ahead of Amazon on waterproofing, for one thing, and that's no small matter for a big section of eReader users - anyone reading by the beach or swimming pool on holiday, or in the bath back home.

A high-end eReader with an advantage over Amazon's Kindles

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from Tech Advisor

There are a few disadvantages to the Aura H2O that are important to note, such as processing power and unresponsive interface. Processing is quite slow and menus, settings and controls take a bit longer to display. What sets the Kobo Aura H2O apart from its competitors is its water resistance. This device is the only one of its kind to be able to withstand 1m of water for 30 minutes.

A waterproof e-reader worthy of your consideration

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from PCWorld

The Kobo Aura H20 Edition 2 is a waterproof and feature-packed e-reader that, provided they’ve not already amassed a large library of Amazon Kindle eBooks, that any book lover will enjoy—provided you don’t try to use it while it’s wet.

Mobile Syrup

A waterproof e-reader for everyone else

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from Mobile Syrup

There’s something to be said about just how more consumer friendly Kobo is to its user. While its library is not as comprehensive as what Amazon offers, Kobo does allow its users to borrow books from their local library, sideload any e-books they may already own and download online articles using Pocket. In other words, there’s a price to be paid for playing in Amazon’s walled garden.

The waterproof wannabe Kindle-killer

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from TechRadar

Kobo’s latest ereader is a solid upgrade on its previous model. It’s waterproof, it’s compact, it’s light – and did we mention it’s waterproof? The Aura H2O is definitely a contender in the ereader market, but is waterproofing enough to see off the Kindles?

Falls a little short, notably with its strange battery life and sluggish performance

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from TrustedReviews

A decent e-reader in certain scenarios – but uneven battery life and sluggish performance take the shine off.

Kindle’s distant rival provides a great read

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from Alphr

The Kobo is a great product that doesn’t put a foot wrong and if you’re happy not using Amazon for your book fix then it’s an easy recommendation. At £150 it’s a pricey, mind, but that’s the price you pay for a larger screen and waterproofing peace-of-mind. Essentially, it has everything you could want in an ebook reader. Except for those Amazon bargains, of course.

Water resistant, decent features

Kobo Aura H2O (2017)

from Recombu

If you have a deep love of reading in the bath, this device is a no-brainer. That water resistant design offers full peace of mind, while the improved performance and more compact build make it a more satisfying experience. Boosted by a well-stocked (and finally affordable) store, this new Aura H2O is a solid all-round eReader.

Kobo Arc - a step backwards for e readers

Kobo Arc

I won a Kobo Arc as a prize in a draw. Very great to start with given I have had a first generation kindle for years that I like but it is limited to black and white. The price (zero) was about right. The unit is a power hog, buggy and has a very long/complicated setup. the current issue (...More
I won a Kobo Arc as a prize in a draw. Very great to start with given I have had a first generation kindle for years that I like but it is limited to black and white. The price (zero) was about right. The unit is a power hog, buggy and has a very long/complicated setup. the current issue (unresolved) is that when plugged in to recharge - upon reaching 100% charge I lost all power and functionality. No window, no data and loss of all purchases. Conceptually I like the size and clarity of the screen but to be inundated with advertising every time I turn it on what I see is a purchased commercial rather than a handy device. Less

Great Tablet/ Ereader

Kobo Arc

I love this tablet, I have been using tapestries to help keep myself organized with school notes. The front facing speakers add a better experience for games and movies, as well as audio novels. The value is definitely there.

Font size inadequate

Kobo Arc

For a person with poor vision, tablets are a way to continue enjoying reading. The font choices and the sizes available are inadequate to enable me to read this tablet. I was lead to believe that font sizes could be adjusted via touch screen (thumb & finger) but not so.The available adjustment just don't allow a big enough font
