I bought one of these ereaders for my wife for Christmas and I'm really impressed with it. Over the years I have owned two Sony Readers, which is just an ebook gadget, and an Ipad, on which I read a lot of books as well as do other stuff. Therefore I think that I know what I am talking about when it comes to ereaders. The Kobo uses an e-ink screen, which means that it is easily visible no matter the amount of light available in the environment, and also that it uses very little power compared to non-e-ink screens such as the ipad.
The capacity of the Kobo is pretty good, with 2GB available for books, which means that it fits an awful lot on it - I haven't counted how many my wife has put on it so far but it is a lot and there is still lots more space left. It is nice that it has a microSD slot so that when she fills the 2GB she can then add more capacity.
The weight is nice, it is nice and light and she keeps it in her handbag without a problem.
I'm very impressed with this gadget and it is well worth the sub-£100 prices currently being asked for for it on Amazon.
Summary: Kobo ebook reader is worth the price
