Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it, but buy a Kindle. I bought this e-reader, as all paper is banned in my workplace for privacy reasons and I loved it- I still do. The e-reader is great and has lots of options for brightness, bookmarks, sleep function, it doesn't glare, etc. HOWEVER- the Kindle Ebook store is such a rip off! I found this out when I was trying to find a new book on GoodReads (they have all the The Kobo store had this book listed for $13.99, the paperback was $9 and the Kindle Store had the book listed for $3!!! Additionally, Amazon offers something called Kindle unlimited where you can pay $10/month and get unlimited select books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overdrive Tip when buying the Kobo Clara I was excited to get this ereader, largely because of its compatibility with the Overdrive program used in Canadian libraries. Be aware - when you first receive this ereader, Overdrive will NOT automatically appear in your settings. Be sure to Sync your Kobo Clara when you have charged it and added it to a WiFi network, and it will update the Clara to add Overdrive to your settings. Then you are good to go!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ... I just want to say that I would totally buy this, IF it came in a different colour! Or different cases? Selection is very poor. I’ve had my kobo Glo for at least 6 years now, I LOVE it! Still works great, I’ve read hundreds of books on it and it’s never given me any problems and the battery life is still amazing to this day. I could suck it up for the case just cuz it works as a stand too which would be cool, but I’d like a white kobo, more selection for colours please!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems good value for the $ This is the 3rd Kobo I've had. The screen on my very first stopped working years ago, the power switch on my second Kobo (Aura) started to fail after 1800 reading hours. Compared to the AURA, this is a much faster e-reader, keyboard seems more sensitive. So far I'm happy. FYI, there is no wall charger included with the Clara, just a computer cable. I don't always have my computer on, but I have compatible wall chargers from other devices.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from transferring books from computer is a hassle It takes too long for the device to connect to my mac. My family has had the KOBO for years. Three of us use these devices since it came out but the connection from KOBO to computer has always been a problem. I am fed up so I've switched to Kindle now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment so far Prior to this I did my research and this is my first ebook reader that I have purchased. Despite not having used other ebook readers, I can still say with confidence that the Clara HD is well made and great to use. I have not stopped binging on books for a few weeks now. It's small and light enough to carry around with you everywhere you go. Yet. it's heavy enough for me at least, to feel like there's some weight to what you're holding (I might be part of the minority, but I prefer having some weight on my hands while reading/holding something, as it feels more natural). The screen, resolution and font size options are good enough, allowing me to read for hours on end, comfortably if I may add. All in all, I love this product, and I don't think I would be retiring it or putting it down anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changer Bought this puppy a week ago and I love it!!!! It's truly life changing, the fact that I am able to borrow library books is amazing and the major selling point. I almost but a Kindle but have no regrets :) only little issue is the backlight bleeding that everyone keeps talking about. On the bottom corners you get this weird light which I find pretty distracting even when you have the light on at 8%. I guess turning it all the way off would solve it. Also connecting to the wifi was a little challenging because of how my wifi is set up so that was frustrating. Also when I first turned it on it prompted me to choose a language and I would press and nothing would happen. I turned it off and on and that got it going. Other than that I'm happy happy happy :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase everrrr!!! This is my first ereader and i have to say, i am contended and happy! The only thing i hope to change on updates is the ability to choose anytime of the day to set as your bedtime. I’m a nurse and i do shift work, and sometimes ky bedtime is at 12noon. It only gives option from 9pm-3am. Please please address this. I doubt it’s much of a nuisance for you! But overall, i love everything (almost) on this ereader. If you want an ereader just for reading, this is the one for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an improvement over older Kobo devices! I hesitated to purchase this reader after having had a bad experience with a first-generation Kobo reader. But I have nothing but praise for this device: it's fast, reading on it is very enjoyable, and I'm able to borrow/renew books from my library with ease. This device exceeded my expectations and I recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overdrive not working, will not download library ebooks Bought this as a birthday gift for my mom so she could read ebooks from the library. She already has the aura kobo and I was upgrading her with the Clara because of the advertised "built in Overdrive". Right out of the box it needed an upgrade just to get the Overdrive. After several hours and attempts to wirelessly download borrowed library ebooks it still will not sync. Really disappointed with this slow glitchy e-reader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift I got this as a gift a few months ago and I still use it to this day! It's great to travel with and it doesn't hurt your eyes whatsoever!! I definitely recommend this if your into books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love it! My Kobo Glo was going strong for 4+ years until I tried to start it up one day and got the dreaded multiple lines across the powered-off home screen, so sadly, I had to buy a replacement. The Kobo Clara is a nice updated improvement of the Kobo Glo. The interface is the same (thank goodness!) and it loads much faster (likely due to the increase in onboard memory capacity at 8 GB). The Clara is slightly larger than the Glo so I had to buy a new cover for it (I will admit that I found a knockoff online. The Kobo covers are simply priced too high for what they are). I do like that you can change the colour and brightness of the backlight (it's slightly cumbersome to do so but apparently there is a shortcut - I am looking into this).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is amazing!! I've had a glitchy old Kobo Touch for years now. I've resisted getting a new Kobo as I don't like change, but after putting up with increasing glitches for the past few months, my old Kobo finally died last night. Bought a new Kobo Clara this morning. This thing is amazing! It's like upgrading from taking the bus to being driven around in a BMW or something. Much faster response than my old Kobo, so much more responsive. I wish this had come out months ago... would have saved me a lot of frustrations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My new Kobo Clara was a birthday gift two weeks ago. So far, I have read three books and it has met and surpassed my expectations. It was very easy to set up. It works well in both bright light outside and in lower light. The size and weight are perfect for marathon reading sessions. And it is very easy on the eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Very pleased with the Kobo Clara! Easy set up. The device is lightweight and thin. Love the lighting on it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER pleased! I am so happy with the Kobo Clara! The lighting is great, tested it out in all environments over the weekend and didn't have a problem reading outside or in the dark with no eye straining. It is quite a step up from my original Kobo (one of the first editions!), it works quite a bit faster (I had put 300 ebooks on it and it was lagging a bit but I removed about 150, books I wasn't planning on reading, and it's much faster now), and the quality of the print is evident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lil' eReader I got the Clara HD to upgrade from my first ereader, which was the first edition of the Kobo! Overall I am very happy that I decided to purchase the Clara. Of course, I could have used the Kobo app on my phone, but I do think the ereader is a great investment. First off, setting up the ereader with my account was easy, however I had finished all the books I was reading on my last ereader and cannot say whether or not all of your bookmarks will be kept when transferring books you may be currently reading onto the Clara. In addition, the lighting excellent (and adjustable) and it doesn't strain your eyes if you like to read for hours on end (like myself). It is also thin, very light and just the right size so I can comfortably hold it in my hands (if that makes sense?). I am very impressed with all the updates on this Kobo, and will using this one for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best One of the Kobos Out There! I’m very happy with my Clara HD. It reminds me of the Glo HD but it’s faster, thinner and lighter with the comfort-pro light. I prefer a device with a bevel on it. I don’t like the all flat screens like the various incarnations of the Aura. I have the Aura One and am not crazy about it. I think one of the main design differences between the Clara and the Glo HD is that the Glo had a shiny edge inside the bevel that would reflect light and sometimes become a distraction and an annoyance. The Clara HD does not have it. I like the 8gb storage and the much faster processor. My only wish is that the devices would come in something other than black. It’s a great little reader.
