The product description says 6 inch, The picture shows the 7.8 inch one, Ordered anyway, Thank you.
Nearly bought the argos one a week ago (glad I didn't)

Had this. Good e-reader but preferred the convenience of kindle so sold it and went back.

I should have waited....

The Aura one is definitely 7.8" the description says 7.8" but the specification incorrectly says 6".

One tip for anyone buying these, especially if you're going to use it with Calibre via USB, is to connect via a powered USB hub as many, if not most, modern computers do not supply enough power via the standard onboard hubs.

Prefer kindle I felt Kobo os was slow unless improved

I heard you can get some software on here to better deal with pdfs, and give you more options with them. Anybody know about that?

I haven't found anything, the KOBO PDF renderer is pretty poor. I've used k2pdfopt to re-render PDF page sizes more suited to the Aura One, but it doesn't work effectively on some PDFs.

Still like 3x the price of this deal though. Not comparable as a result in my opinion.

Based on my past experiences with currys_pcworld ebay store you are unlikely to receive the Kobo Aura One, instead one of these is likely to happen:

a) you will not receive anything, there will be no proactive communication from them, after you complain or more importantly open a case they will say it was a misprice.

b) you will receive something else. If you contact them including opening a case they will go outside the official process and message you outside of the case communication by email to return the item using a label generated from their link. Do not do this, this is not the proper way to keep your ebay protection. Instead demand they accept the official return request and message through ebay, not email.

Either way getting your money will take several weeks. I hope this does not happen, but if it does remember to leave negative feedback.

That just happened, received the 6 inch one although on the invoice that came with it says Kobo Aura One. Thanks for the advice

Open a case. If they don't respond ebay will intervene give you a return label and your money back. It is very important to ignore messages they send outside of the refund case and email. After you get your money back leave negative feedback.
