    I have the Sage. The big screen is great. Battery life is unbelievably poor. Note taking is a gimmick and needs a Microsoft compatible pen.

    If you can get a deal on the Libra 2 .... Consider that instead.... Both are better than Kindles btw

    How bad is the battery please?

    How does Kobo ecosystem compares to Amazon's? Is the book selection just as good?
    Avatar
    In terms of books that you'd want to buy, kobo store and Amazon are much of a muchness. Prices are usually the same and availability is equal.

    Some self published books won't be available but generally these aren't worth wasting your time on.

    The big advantage to the kobo is that it almost certainly integrates with your local library meaning free book loans.

    If you're technically inclined, have a look at calibre and dedrm. It gives you access to all sorts of free repositories like Gutenberg and will even allow you to move books from Amazon to kobo (not sure of the legalities of the Amazon stuff)

    Having both kobo and Amazon Kindle, I'll never go back to Kindle

    Bought a Kobo last year to access E-books from my local library, unfortunately I couldn't access library books as they don't support Kobo. Double check with your library if that's your reason for buying one. I can access books using the Borrowbox App on either my iPad or phone,

    Kobo is a really great ereader. I personally have a Kobo Libra 2 with the Plato plugin installed and I was really pleased with this device. Minimal UI and it's really fast. I have used Kindle before and moving to another ecosystem was not a biggie. (edited)

    That’s a brilliant price!

    I thought Ereaders were suppose to be a portable option compared to a book. This is bigger than a book!

    There's something nice about the size of this. It makes for a more relaxing read with less eye strain.

    It gives a better reading experience than smaller paper white type devices.

    But yes, you'll slip it into a bag rather than a pocket

    Can you write notes over a PDF?
    Avatar
    Not usually, no.

    But I believe that some PDF 'formats', are more maluble than that of others, etc?

    The Kobo may (or may not), be one of them ...

    Wouldn't a 10 inch Android tablet (set to 'reading mode', etc), be a better alternative, or whatever?

    And not to mention, a (arguably) cheaper option too, by the way?

    Or ...

    Thanx.

    These e readers have a paper like display which is easier on the eyes than a tab.
    They don't emit blue light so better when you're going to sleep.
    They are relatively small.
    You can use them in bright sunlight. In fact they are best in bright sun light

    Horses for courses.... Only buy an ereader if you want to read black and white print and nothing else
