Think I realised what I've done I've loaded PDFs onto it, I must have converted every single book to pdf and although ok they are not great to read as the text isn't that unjustable on a pdf. converted them to epub and now I can play with the different fonts and sizes and makes it alot more enjoyable to read from.
Difficult to say whether it's a problem given you've not owned an reader previously. Ereaders in general are slower to refresh compared to other technologies however the page turns on this device are quick, certainly no slower than a Kindle. Have you tried a book purchased from the store? It's maybe possible that the stuttering could be caused by the way the books have been converted? Try Calibre again perhaps, otherwise get in touch with Kobo and ask for an exchange in case it is a dud device. Retailers such as John Lewis and Currys will have Kindles in store if you want to compare the page turns between the devices.
Shouldn't lag, my Kobo Aura from 3 years ago swipes fine. You updated the firmware by WiFi? How many books did you load onto it?
hows everyone getting on with there kobo, i got mine today, ive loaded some books, i actually a bit disappointed ive not owned a ereader before but its a bit slow and stutters from page to page. is this just the way the are, im tempted by maybe the kindle would be the better option, maybe im expecting too much
waiting on delivery of mine. ive converted all my kindles using another up as i couldnt work out the calibre so i havent found if this new program worked, when i try it i will report back as it was free and literally a drag and drop
