11.5% topcashback

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.

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.

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

what's the life span on these, reading a lot of reviews of the paperwhite giving up around the 2 year mark?

Was told I'd dropped the device (never moved from bedside table).Customer service is non-existent, search online for 'Kobo screen faulty'.Bought a Kindle and never looked back.


Hope you got your Kindle from JohnLewis for the 2-yr warranty, Amazon aren't interested in fault repairs if you've had your device more than 1 year. Own experience.

At more than twice the price? That's quite a budget stretch...

What did the retailer say? Assuming you didn't buy directly from Kobo. Onus is on them to prove the fault wasn't there from purchase if it develops within 6 months.

​That's a fair enough point. I think, ideally, if people remove DRM from library books, it shouldn't be to share more widely. And if you're not doing that, then you're risk free. All the same, I condone this practice when you've actually bought the book. As for libraries shutting down - I fear it becomes inevitable as soon as digital media becomes easy, and capitalism gets its hooks into the physical equivalents (which it has). If people really valued physical books but found them too expensive to buy and keep, I think we'd still have many libraries.

Thanks for the heads up! Been wanting to replace my broken old first generation Kindle for a while now. This looks great.

So these can borrow ebooks from a library, unlike Kindles?



​ I haven't looked into it before, so just did some research. Seems it's perfectly possible: kobo.com/hel…ary

As long as the library uses the OverDrive system, which it seems most in fact do.

So yes, you can

Alternatively, though, I would probably just strip the file of the DRM and then you can convert or transfer it anywhere/anyhow you want. And then, if you didn't want to feel like a pirate, you could delete it when you're done
