A very good ereader and a good alternative to the Kindle Paperwhite. Supports amost every ebook file type. Usually £99.99 but is on offer with 20% discount.

As an alternative (if you're happy with the Amazon ecosystem) the Kindle Paperwhite is currently £20 off, making it £89.00, only £10 more expensive than this. The main advantage is a 300ppi screen over the Kobo Aura 2's 212ppi.
Good price but reviews aren't great. I'm considering a backlit e-reader, the Amazon Paperwhite seems a better bet to me.

​It's the only bet.
Same price at Argos.

Personally I don't think there is a noticeable difference in 300ppi vs 212ppi when reading books.

what's the life span on these, reading a lot of reviews of the paperwhite giving up around the 2 year mark?
I have both Kobe and kindle,to me the different is kobo you can access the Canadian library all books for free and use Pocket,kindle you got the Amazon resource and kindle email push function,hope this can help someone x
I have the first version and prefer it to my latest generation paperwhite. The screen is nicer, there is no frame as such (front is flat with no lip and the screen light is even, unlike the kindle. Pity you can't download kindle books directly to it without faffing around with calibre.
Fan of Kobo hardware, but their customer support is DIRE. Own three Kobo's in the house, but any future buys I'm switching to Amazon.
