Price has gone back up by the time I noticed this.....

hisknibbs

No screen issues. I bought it as soon as the 32GB version was launched in this country.

nickname_esco

Sounds good. How recently did you buy it? I take it you had no display brightness issues where the screen display on side of buttons is darker? Few people mention it in reviews but maybe they have fixed this issue now...

hisknibbs

I have one of these. It’s the best e-reader I’ve owned over the last 9 years. Superb screen and reads just about any format you can throw at it. Voted blisteringly hit by me.

Not too bad then. Looking forward. Thanks for answering (y)

5 days - it comes from the Netherlands. I'm very happy with it so far. Using calibre to manage the books and have installed an alternative PDF reader (koreader). Much more responsive than my old Kindle Paperwhite and the screen is clearer as well.

How long did delivery take please? Just ordered one. Switching from kindle, fancy a change. Thanks for posting (y)

Something else worth noting about the Kobo devices. I have a Kobo Touch I bought in 2011 and they're still releasing software updates that support it! Their can't be many hardware vendors in the consumer technology world providing that level of hardware support

Sproutey

Got any actual books in your house? You might be surprised how old paper-tech is... E-ink is a niche technology, but also one very suited to its role.

It is full Android. I know because I'm using it I also tried the newest pocketbook device (inkpad 3 pro) and it was terrible. Slow to refresh, full annoying flashing refresh, worse slow internet browser

Searcher2

You don't export from the Kindle app on your PC. You download the books to your PC in the Kindle app. They will then appear in the users/<your user name>/documents/My Kindle Content folder on your PC. From within Calibre you import the files from the My Kindle Content folder by clicking on 'Add Books' and choosing that folder. Finally you choose the 'Convert Books' option in Callibre

ArcaneSim

Not full Android or probably not Android at all, but if someone is interested, there’s also Pocketbook, which have couple of models on the market

Searcher2

Precisely... the comment above saying to just use Calibre to convert Kindle books made it sound simple. You are correct in that you need an older version of Kindle (for PC in my case) if you want to be able to do the conversion. Calibre is here... https://calibre-ebook.com/download I finally managed to do it using the older version of Kindle from here... https://www.epubsoft.com/soft/kindle-for-pc.html and followed the 'Method 1' instructions from here.... https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=283371

I dont understand how its possible to get a book from the Kindle app to Calibre as I cant see an export option

You can if you use Calibre. Don’t think you’ll find anything new for half this price - cheapest would be the standard Kindle which occasionally goes on sale for £59.99. Other than that it would be buying used.

Wife has a kindle so we have a decent library already, can I read the books we already own there on this?

Can v get books from Amazon on this? I m after an e-reader but something of half the price. Could someone suggest one please?

Rustybucket

You can pick up a larger non eink tablet for less than this Kobo is on sale. But the last time I checked they dont have reflective screen with a month of battery life. These facts you like to cite are being picked carefully.

khamito

You can't disagree on basic facts m8, but if your ego can't handle being wrong then fair enough. If you want to read comics, get a non e-ink tablet that costs 3-4x more and then complain about how it costs so much more than an e-reader (lol)

Rustybucket

Yeah. We're going to have to agree to disagree on this one. You're clearly content paying these prices for incremental improvements at best. I'm not. And as for books being predominantly black and white, that is only true of novels. Modern textbooks, magazines and comics are mostly colour and in a larger format and if you cant see the value of having a device with greater physical size, capacity with vivid colour then I suppose you'll be happy with ereaders for years to come, since my dream still seems decades away.

khamito

1) Moore's law is that the amount of transistors that fit in a given dimension will double every years, it's only tangentially related to speed increases (and what exactly do you want to run faster in your e-reader? page turn time is related to the display technology not cpu or memory) 2) Moore's law stopped being broadly true around the turn of the decade (the change to 22nm was difficult and the following 14/10/7nm transitions even more difficult especially around current leakage and temperature control) 3) Many devices don't need to be faster. Case in point, ATMs still run on software and hardware from decades ago 3) Books have been predominantly black & white for centuries, you're claiming that having a device aimed at replicating a physical book should offer a much larger size and colour reproduction because.... IT SHOULD BCUZ TECHNOLOGY AND MOORES LAW Ok m8

Rustybucket

If all technology moved at the same pace as eink readers Moores law would have stopped being a thing years ago. The lack of innovation and competition in the market has meant that the dream of having a larger colour device for reading A4 sized pages in an experience even remotely close to paper is still just that. It's now expected that these ereaders are able to fit in a handbag and will always be grayscale. They've been threatening to release a colour eink screen for years, but we've still yet to see even a poorly implemented first try. Comparing a market that has literally thousands of options with price points starting lower than this Kobo is like comparing apples and oranges.

Buy cheap Amazon ones and convert with Calibre and apprentice Alf (been a while but I presume it still works) Project Gutenberg also has free out of copyright books and there is a free ebook section on Goodreads...

RanaTahir11

Not 100% on Clara (pretty sure it has one too), but One has "OverDrive" built-in, which means you can borrow ebooks from your local library.

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.

nicks99

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.

mancmackem

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?

robbp

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
