Designed by book lovers for book lovers, Kobo Wireless eReader is intuitive, lightweight, and compact.
Plus more great features...
This baby got me into ereading. The one down side was the directional button was slow. However Kobo now has touch screen so that solves that.
I spent a lot of time researching ereaders before i bought, and I'm glad I did. The vox is a great value and can do the same thing as it's competition. Fast downloads, beautiful viewing, kobo store,free android apps through multiple app stores. I recommend it to the beginner and experienced techie.
Great low price eReader6/17/2012
First of all, this is a strictly for book lovers instead of devices lovers. This eReader is slow and it does not have the touch screen features you would see in most popular eReaders or Tablets these days. However, this eReader is strictly a reader. (despite it said it supports Wifi, it is hard to imagine how you can use it via Wifi. It is because there is no keypad. You can use the up and down arrow to select each alphabet. It takes a long time to type anything) To load the epub books, you just connect it to the computer. Primarily, this is very low price as an eReader. As it is low price, you can bring it outside without worrying losing it. Compared to to Kobo touch, BN Nook touch, this eReader is about half the price or less. For myself, I use it as a secondary eReader. (I have a primary eReader) Also, this is epub device. It supports epub and library format. (Kindle devices are not using epub). Finally, it is slow to start up and it is slow to turn off. But as you are reading a book, it is not slow to turn a page. You use the right arrow to turn a page. That part works nicely. Regarding PDF, it is not ideal. (actually most eReaders are not good for PDF, because you need a fast processor to control the zoom in PDF)
