Some customer reviews of Kobo Wireless eReader

Most helpful reviews

Steve, Abingdon Casual reader

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Bought as entry level for an 11 year old and excellent value for money for her given the limited supply of ebooks available for her.
Very simple to use with good battery life.
Bad points:
Page turns probably a little slow for the more prolific reader and not as good as the kindle and sony ereader that I also own but then you get what you pay for.

Alec, Berkhamsted Casual reader

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
If you put it in sleep mode the battery only lasted a week. If you turned it off each night it lasted over three weeks. From other reviews I have read people have had trouble connecting it to their computer. Unlike the i-pod and others it does not automatically connect - you have to tell it to.
Bad points:
Instructions - hopeless, not much use at all

Ivell, Avid reader

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Easy to carry.
Bad points:
I bought the kobo ereader to put the bible on and after purchasing the book and 6 weeks back and forth to KOBO themselves, I was told that it was not compatible, I now have another bible which opens up but I am unable to go straight to the book that I was to read ... have put off calling KOBO again as it is becoming a bit of a pain. If I could afford it right now I would purchase a kindle.
