Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it! Got it as a gift from my kids for Mother's day last year. I have been using it heavily. I did have the device freeze once and just did a reset with a pin and it's been working just fine. I read every day, purchase books on-line - no problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Product - Doesn't last long I bought a Kobo Aura HD and after a month, it broke. A quarter of the screen works, while the rest is covered in lines. I dealt with Kobo's customer service (or lack there of) and they blamed it on me. Someone bought me another one as a gift and I figured I would give it a shot, and after a week of use it is stuck in sleep mode. This product was not ready for the public market and should not be purchased by anyone. Buyer beware - Kobo will not help you if it breaks... their so called warranty doesn't exist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this I bought a Kobo Aura HD for my daughter. After just 2 months the Kobo stopped working. Kobo says this is not covered under their warranty. We have had other e-readers and have never had a problem with them. Don't buy this device unless you are prepared to replace it frequently as it is too fragile to handle normal wear and tear. I will never buy one again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragile device, terrible support The screens on these crack very easily. Mine broke after a short drop onto carpet while in a protective case. Kobo's warranty doesn't cover physical damage. In contrast to their competitors, they don't offer a repair service, and replacement parts aren't available. Basically, if your screen cracks, and there's a good chance it will, it's buy another one at full price or loose your library.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great until it quit Do not purchase this item without knowing that it is VERY delicate. I was very impressed with this reader especially the back-lit feature UNTIL the screen froze. The Indigo store would not warrant it so I had to deal with Kobo "Customer Care", who declared that it could not be a manufaturer's defect and that I must have dropped it (not true!) I had purchased a protective case and treated it with care. So just be aware that it will break even with very careful use, and you will be out of luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love It I absolutely love my Aura. It is a pleasure to read, day or night, in bright sun or the dead of night in a dark room. I like that it is a device dedicated to reading and only reading. My laptop and tablet are great for doing what they do, but I don't like reading on them. It connects easily to Wifi and I have purchased books easily in 3 different countries while travelling. I have had no problems with my Aura and recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! My boyfriend bought me this for my birthday a month after it came out. I had previously the Kobo touch and loved it. I do love this as well. Its updated look and feel are great. And I love how fast it is and the backlight. I hated using my book light so the built in light was a great addition. My one complaint though was I did a sync to see if there was an update and instead my Kobo decided to do a factory reset and I lost all of my progress, all of my books, everything. So far I have spent the last hour of my Sunday morning trying to put it back to normal. So annoyed with that since it had never happened with my Touch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy device Without question the software and firmware is the best on the market; however, within a month of purchasing the screen locked and the device ceased responding. Kobo support informed me the device has been physically damaged (despite being in a cover in my backpack) and my warranty is not valid - essentially out the full price of a kobo. Device is great if you intend to keep on your nightstand, but would not recommend to anyone intending to take on the go.

Rated out of 5 by from I ordered the Kobo Aura on May 3rd, in store, and was told it would only be a few days, it is now May 24th, and Kobo still has NOT delivered it to the store, where I said I would like to pick it up. If it is an order, you would think they would send one to "that" store rather than have 8 or 10 sitting in a store an hour away from me, that I cannot get to. The store I am dealing with has called Kobo several times, and simply been told "it is not available yet". When I go on line I find there are several available in stores hours away from me.

Rated out of 5 by from Yeah, I wouldn't trust another Kobo. Had a horrible experience with the Kobo Vox. Plauged with weird power problems, and extremely slow to load books and turn pages. After about a year the power connection broke or wore out, now I cannot charge it so cannot use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best e-reader I had bought the Kobo mini in Nov 2012 and didn't think I would like an e reader as I am an avid book lover. I was totally blown away. I really liked it but since I read so quickly and so much, I found that the mini didn't have the processor speed that I needed. I also started to think that maybe a back light for night reading would be a good idea. So I picked up the Aura HD and it was the best purchase I have ever made. It fits so comfortably in my hand, the processor can keep up with me and I don't have long lag times. I was very sceptical of the back light but it has turned out to be awesome. I don't experience any eye strain and it allows me to read even in less than ideal lighting conditions. I've been talking up this e-reader to everyone I know. It is a fabulous product and a great price. And its Canadian to boot which makes it even nicer.....

Rated out of 5 by from I am sooo tempted to get this... BUT! I bought the very first Kobo that came out (the non-Wifi version). A few weeks later, the Wifi version came out and was not happy. I did not buy the Touch version. Then the VOX came out. Wow! A tablet version, in colour. So I bought it. But it died miserably within a year and now the ARC is a much superior version. Then came the mini, the Glo... In all, I bought the 2 worst versions and yet this new version is now out. I'm actually scared of buying it in case it's either not really good, or it'll be replaced too soon with a newer model. What to do? Maybe Kobo should spend more energy on fixing issues and enhancing the features of the current lines (that and better customer service... really).

Rated out of 5 by from The Clarity of the new HD screen is amazing, & with the abitity to change the weight of the font, it makes it that much easier to read. I also LOVE the Glo or in this case the Aura with the eInk (absolutely no reason to strain your eyes with this device). The new opening display is really nice, it shows so much more than just the few books you have newest. But I would have to say, that one of my favourite new features, are the Games! I love all the different Solitaire versions that are available & I really enjoy playing Sudoku (only I'm finding even the simple version harder than normal), still enjoy trying though. All in all, Great Device. I'd definately recommend for any bookworm!
