Firstly I will just say that I have owned and loved a Kindle Keyboard for the past year. I was tempted to go for the Kindle Paperwhite but two reasons stopped me. The first were the reviews of the screen, with distortions and shadowing. The second was a step down in storage, from 4GB to 2GB. As I could not find a Kindle Paperwhite in any local store, I could not look at the screen or try the navigation out.

I started to consider the alternatives. The Nook just looked horrible, wasn't sure about the Sony devices but the Kobo Glo caught my eye. Went into WHSmith and a nice lady demonstrated all the features of the Glo. I knew it could not read my Amazon .mobi files but using Calibre (with a handy plugin) I knew I would be able to get around this. I took the plunge and bought a Kobo.

I have had it now for a month and am very impressed with it. The weight, size and build is nice. At times I have found the power slider switch to be a little unresponsive but overall not a problem. The light is very even across the screen and is perfect for night time reading. You can also turn it off completely either through a menu option or with a small button on the top of the device. I like the fact that there are so many ways to customize your reading experience. There are many more options regarding the text settings than there was on my Kindle 4. I have around 20 size settings, I can sharpen the text and install my own preferred fonts if required. The homepage on the device is nice, showing you the covers of the last 5 books read. The library has the option of viewing the details (metadata) of the book before committing to read it which is nice if you have a lot of files on there.

Being an avid reader is a good thing, being an avid reader with a small child is also good but you loose all your book shelf space to toys and childrens books and the space I had in my hand bag for books has now been taken but mummy things so I switched to ebooks almost 5 years ago. I had a Sony Pocket reader till january thing year when it met with a sad end (my hubby dropped my bag and the internal battery wouldn't keep a charge) so for my birthday he researched and came up with the Kobo Glo and I couldn't be happier. He knew my only big condition was it couldn't be a Kindle (no offence, while I know people who swear by them my big problem is I am unable to loan e-books from the library as the format isn't supported and all my e-books I have bought are not compatible), the other issue I had was more of a niggle, I'm not a great lover of touch screens, that is the big problem with todays tech, almost everything is touch screen, my reluctance there is that the screen becomes greasy and smeared since I have very oily skin, suprisingly this hasn't been an issue though, the screen isn't a glassy type finish and doesn't seem to mark.
I have found the Kobo Glo quite intuitive to use aswell, the software was easily installed and well prompted thoughout with a great introduction bit too showing you how to use it, configuring the reader too was very easy, just a case of choosing my location and setting the wifi.

Just had to leave a review for the brilliant kobo glo. I get fed up of negative comments for this great ereader. I owned four paperwhites. All had faults none had a green screen. Another a pink glow to the screen. One arrived with a crack on the back. Nearly gave up as I'd tried the nook simple touch and really didnt like how it felt to hold. Plus the screen was so un-responsive it drove me mad. I've had my glo now for five months so feel I can leave a review as I know it so well.
I've never had any problems whatsoever with my kobo. The screen is very responsive. The light is very even all over the screen. I currently have 300 books on it. Some I've sideloaded. Some from kobo, and others from the hive. I love the way you can customise kobo products. Plus you can even borrow library books. I've read reviews saying that kindle is a lot more open than kobo. How?? I really get upset when a reviewer posts negative comments after having one bad experience or after owing their kobo for a week.
Kobo are getting better each week. Their online store wasn't the best when I first bought my kobo but it has improved so much in such a short while.
The whole point of an ereader is that you actually forget you are holding a gadget and not a book. With my kobo this is true. I've read over 100 books since I've owned mine. I would go as far as to say its my best purchase ever.

Hi, I asked for and got one of these for Christmas and I've been exploring and experimenting with it since.

I've tried quite a few eReaders on display in shops and chose this one over the others for all the features you'll find advertised on their site and elsewhere but also because it's much easier to read PDFs with. I read a lot of research papers that are almost always in PDF format and which most eReaders seem to be particularly bad with.

In addition it supports a range of ebook formats including EPUB which is pretty much the standard on the open web. If you check open book sites like Project Gutenberg, gutenberg.org, you'll see that it's their preferred format. I use it with the free and open source Calibre eBook organiser, calibre-ebook.com, which also allows me to convert non-copy protected ebooks into different formats. It syncs instantly and effortlessly with my Kobo.

Finally, three things put me off getting a Kindle: #1 - Amazon are tax avoiders and I think they should pay a fairer contribution to the societies that they're benefiting and profiting from, and #2 - I read an news article in which I learned that, in a fit of irony, Amazon deleted copies of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four from their customers' Kindles... down the memory hole!, and #3 - They treat their employees, especially in their warehouses, as badly as they can possibly get away with - do a google search to find out more.

I hope this helps :)
