    Awesome device

    This is my first E-reader. I have no desire to purchase anything else because this one is exceptional. The device comes loaded with customization features, and I tried them all but the defaults work very well for me.I have not seen a few things mentioned in other reviews, that I will bring up here. First, you are able to rotate the content 90 degrees in the menu for landscape viewing. Second, you can turn pages either by tapping or swiping, furthermore the usable space is mappable several different ways. You get to choose what space on the display pages forward or backward (top, bottom or sides of display) and in a few options, how large the space for each choice is. I thought I wanted clicky buttons but I found them unnecessary. My device is very responsive and I don’t feel that it can be improved upon. Out of 2 or 3 thousand pages so far I have never had any issue with a failure to recognize my inputs or lagging.Some reviews have claimed that the device is slow, granted I have never used any competitors devices, but mine is sufficiently fast enough. My phone can be way slower at times doing similar tasks.Also, you have the option to display the book cover on the sleep screen, which doesn’t seem to be well mentioned.

    Dode pixel bij ontvangst

    Zelf heel erg fan van het merk kobo en hun ereaders. Ik was ook erg blij toen ik de kobo in handen had want hij is lekker klein en ligt goed in de hand maar jammer genoeg zag ik al snel dat er een dode pixel in het scherm zat waardoor je elke keer een wit puntje ziet tijdens het lezen. Jammer genoeg moet ik de kobo dus weer terug sturen

    Ottima soluzione

    Premetto che è stato un regalo fatto da me ad un’altra persona.Funziona egregiamente per quello che ho potuto constatare. La risoluzione è ottima e non fa pesare all’occhio il passaggio da scritte stampate su carta a foglio digitale. Molto comodo, e motivo per cui l’ho preferito ad altri competitor, anche il fatto di poter caricare vari formati che comunque vengono gestiti e visualizzati sempre in modo ottimo. Batteria ottima a livello di durata.Ovviamente non é un libro e cambia parecchio la lettura nel momento in cui si passa ad un eBook, personalmente non lo vedrei come un rimpiazzo dei libri, ma come un aggiunta per poter trasportare le proprie letture in modo molto più comodo così da averle accessibili in qualsiasi momento, senza dover ogni volta spostare fisicamente uno o più libri occupando spazio e aggiungendo peso.Lo consiglierei e ne sto valutando l’acquisto anche per me dopo averlo regalato.

    Perfect ebook reader!

    Batería de larga duración, tamaño perfecto, resistente al agua para lectura en piscina y el precio es el mejor entre productos similares. Tenía el Clara HD antes, que simplemente dejó de funcionar, y hasta entonces era mi compañero de viaje número uno. Clara 2e es más ágil, incluso mejor contra salpicaduras de pantalla y tiene USB-C. Muy feliz con eso. (también con mi caso)

    Meine große Liebe

    Eine Freundin von mir hat sich ein Kindle gekauft und ich wollte das zuerst auch tun -damit kann man aber keine Bücher aus der Bibliothek ausleihen und damit war das Ding für mich schon raus.Nach laaaaanger, wirklich langer Recherche habe ich mich für den Kobo Clara entschieden (er ist als einziges wasserfest) und schön handlich. Tja, er ist jetzt mein ständiger Begleiter, wirklich überall nehme ich ihn mit. Ich lese nun viel viel mehr und der Akku hält spitzenmäßig lang.Habe noch einen Popsocket hinten befestigt (was durch die kleine Riffelungen auf der Rückseite schwierig schien, aber dann doch funktionierte).

    Lightweight, good light for reading

    Love my Kobo Clara 2E for reading. Easy to set up and use – so far I have only used with Kobo purchases and Kobo Plus. I already had a Kobo Reader app/account, so it was a matter of entering my existing user name and password. Touchscreen sometimes takes a couple of taps to turn page, which I expected from reviews and testing one in Indigo (Sage was the fastest for page turning). It’s quite light, and easily rests between my thumb and pinky or balanced between thumb and index finger (8.5″ palm width). I do not have the book cover. Swipe left or right or tap on the left or right to turn pages. Settings are reached by tapping top or middle of screen or swiping up. Swipe down to see recently opened books. To leave settings tap screen a second time. This is my first eReader, had read books on tablet or phone before (Kindle, Scribd, Kobo reader apps). Though I used the auto nightshift/reduced blue light settings on my phone, I prefer the light on the eReader – it doesn’t seem as bright. It can be set to auto natural light, and you can also set a bedtime to reduce light. While reading, you can swipe up or down the left side to increase/decrease the light. The only issue I run into is swiping too quickly and turning it completely dark in an already dark room, then trying to increase the light again… which you’d think would be easy enough, but the touchscreen can be delayed. Also, if you accidently rest your hand on the screen too long you may change the font size way too large or too small. I think I have the knack of that now (without going back into settings) – a magnifying-like screen appears and by “stretching” the magnifier smaller or larger it will reset the font. It only takes a slight touch. I find it a little time consuming finding books through the reader’s browser, but I could also use the Kobo website on my phone or laptop. However, I do truly love having a dedicated reader without all the apps, etc.

    Dispose du nécessaire mais trop cher et lente.

    Équipée du nécessaire mais comme toutes les liseuses elle est trop chère pour une techno déjà ancienne qui évolue peu et des matériaux basiques peu résistants. Ils pourraient au moins offrir l’étui.La taille des caractères est réglable dans les livres mais ceux des menus, réglables aussi, restent trop petits. Les icônes (éclairage etc.) sont mal placées, trop rapprochées et trop petites.La mise en route est laborieuse, non intuitive et nécessite un compte qui expose au mieux à de la pub, au pire, au hacking.

    Sehr guter EBookReader!

    Übersichtliche Sortierung der ebooks, sehr klare Darstellung der Schrift, sehr gute Hintergrundbeleuchtung mit automatischer Anpassung an die Abend-/Nachtzeit und diverse Einstellmöglichkeiten für die Schriftgröße, den Zeilenabstand, den Rand usw.. Die Größe des Ereaders ist für mich optimal, da sie eine Mitnahme auf alle Reisen einfach macht und das Gerät nicht zu schwer ist. Ich verwende es mit dem Original-Schutzcover von Kobo; dies ist etwas schwerer als andere Cover, schützt dafür m. E. nach aber besser.

    Bon produit

    Liseuse simple à utiliser et fait son job, multiples fonctionnalités qui permet d’avoir une lecture confortable et le dictionnaire inclus est très utile.Facile d’importer des ebooks depuis son ordinateur et la plate-forme Kobo est sympa (gratuit 14 jours)Néanmoins, la liseuse rame un peu à certains moments mais ça reste très convenable et les petites vagues au dos, je les pensais antidérapantes mais pas du tout, la liseuse glisse.

    AMAZING E-READER

    The media could not be loaded.

    I absolutely love my kobo. I love reading on it. Somehow, I read books faster on my kobo than with physical books. I’m not sure why but I like it! I like that I can custom the text, margins, spacing, etc.With the warm light, I can read late at night without opening any light. My eyes don’t get tired while reading it.A function that I LOVE is the dictionary. If I highlight a word I can have a definition and a translation. It helps to read in english since it’s my second language. I also like that I can bring my kobo anywhere because it’s compact and lightweight.I loved it so much that I bought one to a friend. So if you’re on the fence, BUY IT. It’s amazing.The only downside is that sometimes the screen is not really responsive. I have to tap twice or tap on tiny icons to access something. It can also be slow at times. But in my opinion it’s worth it since it’s an amazing way to read.

    Funciona excelente, le dura bastante la batería y hasta el momento no he presentado ninguna falla.

    El lector es pequeño, para mí es perfecto justo por eso ya que no es tan llamativo y puedo leer cómodamente en el transporte.El almacenamiento es perfecto y es que cada libro pesa muy poquito.Me encanta que puedes escuchar audio libros.El único tema es que es un poco lento al reaccionar por el cambio de página, pero se debe a que el lector es de la gama media.Considero que este modelo está perfecto por el precio y lo que ofrece.

    Gedigen, men komplicerat att få in böcker köpt utanför deras butik

    Fungerar mycket bättre och känns mer gedigen än min tidigare Pocketbook. Saknar verkligen Dropbox-funktion. Extremt komplicerat att få in böcker som man köpt digitalt, men inte i deras egen butik.

    Très bonne liseuse

    Qualité au rendez vous rien à dire bonne fluidité, écran avec un bon rendu, longévité de la batterie superbe. J’ai juste retrouver les deux liseuses détrempées sur ma terrasse car colis privé a défaut de livré dans les temps n’a pas trouvé mieux que de passer 3 jours après la date prévue (sans prévenir) laisser le colis a tout vent (vu que je n’étais pas présent) alors que ce jour là était prévu des orages conséquents. En rentrant le carton était totalement détrempé merci encore à cette société de livraison si efficace !

    Wellfunctioned and wellbalanced

    Its really good. What you can expect and a bit more i would say. Of course a reading tablet is not like an iPad or such, where everything feels smooth, you cant be stressed using this. But the light-settings and text-settings are good and works well.We’ve had no problems putting out books from computer in to it.

    Don’t second guess it. GO WITH KOBO!

    I love this e-reader. It is my first one so I am biased, but I am extremely happy with this purchase. I’ll make a list of pros and cons for easy reading.Pros:- Long battery life (I keep my charged when not in use anyway but it will last you a long time if you’re a heavy reader)- Nice screen; you can adjust the brightness easily on the side, and the e-ink is nice on the eyes. You can also put it in dark mode if you want to.- Amazing customizability: you can change the font, the space between the words and lines, the margins, justification, font weight (like how bold it is), and set what the header and footers show.- LOTS OF STORAGE: 16 GB of book storage, how nice! Better than the 8 GB you get with the Kindle of the same price, yes?- Environmentally friendly: made of recycled plastic??? Uh, heck yes???!!!- BLUETOOTH! Can listen to audiobooks (I don’t but maybe you do)- LOTS OF BOOK OPTIONS! You can connect to your local library system, transfer epubs through Calibre (super easy to do by the way), AND find LOADS of titles in the store. I have yet to find a book on my TBR that’s NOT on the Kobo store.- Pocket Articles! You can read those on there too (I don’t use it but again someone probably does)-THE SIZE! Super lightweight, can fit in my jacket pocket or back jeans pocket (I don’t recommend that though, as the screen is really sensitive), and it is very portable if you commute a lot and don’t like taking something heavy or bulky (which I do because I am a student).-COLLECTIONS: You can put your books in collections! Let’s say you have the entire Harry Potter series on your Kobo, you can put it all into one collection for easy access and it will stay organized!-Highlighting: Just tap & and hold, drag, and release!Cons:- Screen response time is a tad bit slow compared to smartphones and tablets, not a big issue but still something to note.- Keyboard residue: If I type an annotation super fast then the previous key’s shadow will remain until I leave the annotation screen. This happens to other buttons too but it seems to resolve itself fast so this isn’t a big issue either.- A bit hard to annotate. Sometimes when highlighting, if a new annotation is right below the previous one it will select the previous annotation on the same page instead of the one I’m trying to make. A bit frustrating but you just gotta remove the previous one and make a single one on that page.-DOES NOT come with its own charging block. It comes with a charging cord but not the block, you’ll have to get one for it.-Not many options for cases. I’ve looked around on Amazon for a case, and luckily I found one that I like. Not great options, but there are cases out there.I can’t think of anything else to say about this device. Again, it’s not perfect, but I couldn’t ask for a better device for my needs. It is a great alternative to Amazon and is based in Canada (if that matters). Most e-books are cheaper, and it’s great for when you don’t have a lot of room or money for physical books, no matter how great the feel of paper is. I was thinking of getting a Kindle, but I ultimately chose this one. It is cheaper than the Kindle (well cheaper than the device-equivalent Kindle), more user-friendly (from what i’ve heard on Reddit. I consulted the threads on there for help lol), holds more books, AND it’s made out of recycled plastic. So much better than my 10-in iPad I was reading on. I don’t regret buying this AT ALL, and consider it a well-made investment. I love it, and will probably continue to go with Kobo for the rest of my days.Hope this helps, cao!

    Mooie compacte e reader

    Voor mij is dit DE e reader de beste die er is . Klein en handzaam. Verlichting die volgens mij helpt tegen winter dip. Sinds deze e-reader hebt ik daar minder last van . Je kijkt dan toch in een lamp. 💡 of dat echt zo is weet ik niet. Ook kan je luisterboeken hierop laten afspelen en beluisteren.

    Es ist perfekt!

    Es ist super! Tolle Größe! Leicht und fühlt sich schön an. Ich habe noch eine Hülle welche ich klappen kann um es hinzustellen. Es ist mein ständiger Begleiter geworden und ich kann es nur empfehlen!

    Small, light, gets the job done without fuss.

    The good:- Easy to access library books out of the box with a Wifi connection. Libby/Overdrive is pre-installed and just required me to sign in. (Libby and Overdrive are the same thing.)- Settings are good – if you don’t like seeing the book cover of the book you are reading when you put it to sleep or power off, you can turn that off in privacy settings.- Dark mode is a nice feature, but regular mode is easy on the eyes too.- Quick access to my existing Kobo library.Minor cons:- Screen response time is a bit slow, but as I’m not usually typing rather than just reading, it’s not the end of the world.- I didn’t like that it showed the book cover of the last book I had open all the time when the power was off, but I found you can change that in the settings.*** Update: seems there is a lot of confusion over Libby and Overdrive: they are the same thing. Libby is the name of Overdrive’s iOS and Android app, Overdrive is the name of the actual book borrowing service that Libby connects to. On your Kobo, the app is still called Overdrive and works exactly like Libby. A lot of Canadian libraries have discontinued the separate Overdrive iOS/Android app and only support Libby now. This does not affect the Kobo Overdrive app. It only means on a phone or tablet you use Libby to connect to Overdrive’s catalogue.From libbyapp.com:“Note: Although the OverDrive app is being discontinued in 2023, Kobo devices with built-in OverDrive functionality won’t be affected. You can continue borrowing and reading OverDrive ebooks on these devices as usual.”

    Avevo acquistato il mio primo Kobo, un Kobo Glo, nel 2016 e ne ero stata subito conquistata.Sicché quando poco tempo fa ha cominciato a fare i capricci, a non voltare più le pagine, a inchiodarsi per minuti e a dare molteplici segni di senescenza, non volevo saperne di cambiarlo perché gli ero parecchio affezionata.Ma non potevo negare a lungo l’evidenza: il mio amato Kobo Glo aveva raggiunto il limite della sua obsolescenza programmata e, dopo sette anni, mi stava lasciando, probabilmente per esaurimento della batteria integrata non sostituibile.Così ho svolto accurate ricerche sui candidati sostituti e sono giunta alla conclusione di acquistare il Kobo Clara 2E e dopo alcune settimane di utilizzo posso dire che ha quantomeno le stesse caratteristiche del Kobo Glo, ormai fuori produzione da anni e in più la sua scocca è in plastica riciclata, quindi molto ecologica, e pare che sia anche impermeabile addirittura fino a un’ora sotto un metro d’acqua!Oddio, non è che io rischi di farlo cadere in acqua, come invece mi è già accaduto più di una volta col cellulare, ma pare che sia più protetto anche dall’umidità e dagli schizzi accidentali.La scocca in plastica riciclata in realtà lo appesantisce un po’ e lo rende esteticamente meno liscio e accattivante del suo predecessore, con cui condivide le dimensioni dello schermo, più bombato sul retro e ruvido, ma una volta chiuso nella sua bellissima custodia originale, acquistabile a parte e da me recensita altrove, non se ne accorge nessuno.E’ pratico, maneggevole, non troppo pesante, rapido nelle reazioni, offre la possibilità di connettersi a internet come il suo predecessore e anzi io lo tengo sempre col wifi attivato, anche se il suo browser nativo non è ottimale per la navigazione, ma può sempre servire. Ha parecchia memoria in più del Glo e offre la possibilità di prendere appunti, anche se con le dita io non riesco a scrivere nulla di sensato, ma immagino che con una penna apposita si possa ovviare e scrivere quello che si preferisca.Ho anche utilizzato la funzione di Comfort Light Pro, che automaticamente cambia la luminescenza dell’apparecchio di notte, come un pc o uno smartphone e anche se non ci ero abituata mi trovo bene.

    Gotta love a Kobo!

    Bought for my mum after hers had worn out and stopped working. Love Kobo as here in Australia Kindles cannot be synced with our libraries to read borrowed books. With Kobo we can!

    Great product

    Have just updated my old Kobo ereader of 5 years and I find my new Clara 2e very responsive and very easy to navigate. I have always enjoyed having the ability to buy books but also being able to borrow books directly from my library.

    Nothing but trouble

    The reader itself isfine, but the software I see nothing but trouble. I have issues with my account, issues with borrowing books, issues with buying books from the Kobo store and the interface and speed feels like the early 2000s… Never again…

    VERY slow …

    After spending several days researching kobos, kindles, onyx booxs (jeez don’t buy this, the battery leaks acid and ruins the device after a year), and meebooks, so the kobo clara 2e seemed to be the best choice that was within my budget. Mostly positive reviews and the only common downside was erratic battery life. I liked that it has Overdrive (I have seen some reviews saying Overdrive is not on the device, it is, you’ve got to press the … when tapping on a book, “read with overdrive” will pop up) as I am not interested in paying a monthly fee to read books. Might try kobo plus later on when I’m not broke. What was disappointing is how slow this device is. With paying $220 I expected it to be at least a little faster. I did not find any reviews discussing how slow this thing is which is annoying as I had no otherway to tell if it’s a decent product. The screen lags and it flicks from black to white. Typing is even slower. Reading (on overdrive) is better, the pages don’t lag at all the screen flashing hasn’t occurred yet. I like that you can lock it with a pin (keeps my nosy siblings from finding my smut collection haha). Overall, I honestly should have bought a cheap tablet instead for the same money that can do more. Will continue using this for reading and try to grow some much needed patience, however will not be buying another when it’s time is up.

    Solution to borrowing public library books

    It’s a good size for kids’ and adults’ hands, light and easy to use, with a comfortable backlight for reading in dimmer places. A great solution for travel.

    Tamaño ideal para llevar

    Me encantó el tamaño, el color, la configuración muy fácil, la extensa biblioteca, lo que buscaba, ebooks y audiolibros, todo excelente, es exactamente lo que quería

    Heel mooi apparaat

    Mijn vorige kobo van 8 jaar oud begon wat kuren te krijgen. Dus overwogen om een nieuwe te kopen. Toen kwam ik uit op deze uitvoering wat mij erg aansprak.Boeken er opzetten gaat erg makkelijk. Kabeltje er aan hangen en in de computer pluggen en je kan zo je bestanden er op zetten. Je kan zelfs audio boeken luisteren maar dan moet je wek bluetooth oordopjes hebben.Verder ben ik heel blij met deze e-reader. Het leest goed op het schem en je kan het blauwe licht ook warmer zetten wat rustiger is voor je ogen.

    I was a book snob until I got the Kobo Clara 2e

    For decades I truly didn’t think I would take to an e-reader. I liked the look and feel of physical books so much! I finally decided to take a chance and give the Kobo Clara 2e a try a few months ago and am surprised how much I love it – and how much MORE I am reading now. It’s slim, lightweight, has amazing battery life (lasts for a couple of weeks on a charge generally), and the screen is responsive and enjoyable to read from. I am a huge fan of the varied options for brightness and the ability to change the warmth of the screen. I also LOVE that this has dark mode – unless it’s a really bright day and I have it outside, I often prefer reading in dark mode as I find it easier to read. It’s great for use in different positions and is far easier than trying to juggle a flashlight and page-turning of a regular book if you want to read in bed at night without disturbing your spouse. It’s also nice for trying to break the habit of wasting time on social media – I’ve been trying to reach for this and read a few pages here and there rather than scrolling on Instagram on my phone.

    This is second one

    After having my first one four to five years and dropping it when I fell asleep I rnded up with a smashed case and cracked glass so bought another one but with a case that fits round the back of the hand .what a difference ! Sweet dreams…

    Buen libro electrónico

    Estoy contento con la compra. De tamaño algo más pequeño que el que tenía antes pero me he adaptado bien. Lo que más valoro es que puedes leer en la oscuridad sin necesidad de una luz auxiliar. Perfectamente legible no echo de menos el anterior que era de una marca bastante más cara.

    qualité

    Pour changer ma Nolim qui avait plus de 9 ans et qui restait bloquée. Un peu plus compliquée à prendre en main mais cela reste aisé. Pas lourde. Je regrette le manque de bouton de chaque côté pour tourner les pages ici c’est tout tactile et j’y trouve moins pratique et moins réactif. La boutique Kobo est bien fournie ; choix et prix aussi attractifs que chez les autres. Boutique en direct mais rien de nouveau par rapport aux autres. Pourvu qu’ elle dure aussi longtemps que mon ancienne……..

    Simplemente me encanta!

    The media could not be loaded.

    Estoy fascinada y completamente satisfecha con mi Kobo. Es realmente lo que necesitaba, puedo leer mis libros favoritos sin cansar mi vista y más ahora que tuve una cirugía en mis ojos y debo cuidarlos. El Kobo te permite ajustar el brillo según tus necesidades, cambiar tipo y tamaño de letra, y por supuesto importar tus archivos desde otro dispositivo. Permite visualizar muchos formatos siendo el EPUB mi favorito. Lo recomiendo muchísimo a todos aquellos amantes de la lectura!

    I use it for my library books

    So I already owned this kobo. I ended up loving it so much I got one for my daughter and brother who are both readers as well. It’s so convenient to just sync it to my local library and read books for free. It works well. Just don’t drop any water on it. Once I was reading in the bath and just a few drops got on it and the pages started flipping on their own. I’ve never gotten it wet again and it’s never happened again.

    Easy to use

    I replaced my old faithful NOOK (which I had for many years ) with this KOBO Clara 2e Sadly my Nook was in my suitcase which got lost at an airport.After lots of researching I decided on the Kobo mainly because I did not want to be tied to an Amazon kindle with its palaver on downloading ePub books. I am delighted with my Kobo, I have added 6 of my epubs already and all looks good. Very simple to use and really lightweight. Would definitely recommend.

    Piccolo, tascabile, e va che è una meraviglia. Kobo mi soddisfa sempre.

    Dopo quasi un anno posso dire che funziona benissimo, illuminazione, scorrimento pagine, tempi di reazione, tutto consono ad un ebook reader di qualità. E’ piccolo e puoi portarlo ovunque, magari per una lettura da divano o lettone forse è meglio un modello con display maggiore. La carica della batteria, con wi-fi spento o acceso solo per acquisti o sporadici aggiornmenti, con 1 oretta al giorno di lettura dura almeno 3 settimane. Sono soddisfatto.

    It’s an excellent ereader.

    The media could not be loaded.

    I have always been an avid book reader. But I had always used phone as a mode of reading. Finally, I decided to purchase an ereader just to get bigger reading area and less distractions which I normally get from phone.I decided on Kobo because sideloading of ebooks in various formats is super easy. Also it’s exactly the right size. I have pretty small hands but even I can handle it pretty well.Plus points:1. It’s really light-weight.2. No distraction.3. Easy sideloading of various formats of ebooks possible.4. Simple UI.5. Battery life is decent. It lasts me more than a week or so if I read 5 hours daily.6. It’s amazing in bright sunlight. The texts are crisp and highly visible.7. It’s perfectly pocket-sized. So I would say it’s travel-friendly (please use a case tho peeps).’Somewhat’ Negative points-1. It’s plastic overall and thus slippery. Cover/case is a must need.2. Ghosting is a problem but that’s the case with every other eink reader. But it’s not a huge deal. It ultimately gives the feeling of paper where you can see both side’s printed text.3. Browsing internet is just bad. So basically you can only think of simple tasks like pushing a button and praying you don’t have to scroll a webpage, because that experience is not made for an ereader.4. I tried listening to an audiobook but kobo is moody most times and does not connect with bluetooth earphones easily. I would not use kobo for audiobook functionality.5. Touch sensing is slow as you can see in the video.Negatives aren’t much of a hassle for me and thankfully I’m not regretting switching from phone (which is faster and has better audiobook functionality) to an ereader as I wanted something only to read. So yeah, go for it!

    Love it so far

    I actually like it a lot. I personally bought this because I’ve always struggled with reading and have a few learning disabilities which usually makes it more aggravating than fun because I have to go over the same paragraph multiple times to understand it. But this makes life so much easier. I read 100+ pages yesterday on it which is huge for me because usually I only read like 10-20 pages before I wanna throw the book across the room. It has a feature where you can tap the words you don’t understand and it will define them for you. It has a progress page that shows you how many hours you’ve read/how many books/pages per minute you’ve read. It’s water proof so I read in the bath lol. It has a natural light setting so it doesn’t harm your eyes. It looks just like paper and not a phone screen. Its battery life is long lasting. The book I bought downloaded in literally like 5 seconds. I love that I can just quickly grab it and click the on button and it’s ready to go. There’s highlights and note features so you can annotate it if you’d like. I haven’t tried the audio feature yet but definitely will in the future. It’s small and light and easy to carry around or fit in a small bag/purse. I should have gotten this years ago tbh

    Väldigt nöjd!

    Batteritiden är ypperligt bra tack vara den bläckteknik/ skärmen som används, laddning av ny sida är långsam och inte ”flytande” men det är en ok kompromiss med tanke på batteritiden då båda är pga bläcket/skärmen.Lätt att använda. Kobos butik från läsplattan har inte alla titlar men kontaktar man dem via ex Fb så är de villiga att undersöka möjligheten att köpa in titeln till deras bibliotek.Supernöjd!

    Disappointed

    (First of all I want to state that my review has nothing to do with the seller of this product, who was super fast and professional.)To be able to start this ebook reader I had to, not only, create an account at Kobo, but I also had to tie that account to my gmail account so that Kobo could get my personal info from gmail. (To even switch it on!) What the heck? If Kobo requires my personal data for advertising, a more suitable business model would perhaps be to hand its ebook readers out for free. It’s not quite fitting when I paid for the product. I would send it back for a refund, but that’s of course not possible as I opened the box. Kobo would probably claim that I should have read their ToS before buying. Who knows, reading those would have required me to integrate kobo with my Facebook…

    Tolles Gerät, gute Handhabung und super Qualität

    Der eBook Reader ist sehr gut verarbeitet. Ist leicht, dünn und liegt sehr gut in der Hand. Die Rückseite ist angenehm.Das Gerät hält nicht so lange Akku, wie mein altes, die Akkulaufzeit ist trotzdem in Rahmen. Das Akku wird über USB-C Kabel aufgeladen. Man kann fast alle Formate damit lesen und ist nicht von nur einem Anbieter abhängig. Das lesen von PDF ist möglich, aber weniger komfortabel. Touchscreen reagiert schnell und genau. Die Bedingungen ist einfach und intuitiv. Die Bildschirmbeleuchtung ist Tagesabhangig automatisiert und passt sich selbst an. Wenn man das nicht mag, kann man die Farbtemperatur und Beleuchtung manuel einstellen. Den dunklen Modus finde ich sehr praktisch und benutze ihn im Dunkeln sehr häufig.Die Schriftgröße kann man je nach Bedarf anpassen. Speicher kann man durch eine SD -Karte nicht mehr erweitern.

    It’s great!

    Brought this kobo to take with me on vacation. It’s compact, easy to use, and holds a charge forseveral days. The best thing is that it’s waterproof so you can take it everywhere. Also with kobos you can borrow books from the library. Overall it’s a great investment for avid readers.

  58. CS

    Facile à utiliser, legère et avec un excellent logiciel pour la lecture

    Plusieurs points forts pour cette liseuse:- poids plume;- lumière ambrée configurable;- veille avec un écran qui permet de voir le livre en cours et le pourcentage de lecture;- logiciel de lecture très configurable et possibilité de rajout de polices supplémentaires.- rajout très simple de fichiers epub propres sur la liseuse, sans passer par une librairie en ligne;- possibilité d’installer KOreader, logiciel open-source avec encore plus de possibilités;- écran contrasté et d’une très bonne résolution.La manque de boutons physique, atout des Pocketbook, n’est pas vraiment genante.En conclusion – une liseuse ouverte, meilleure que ses equivalents Kindle ou Pocketbook.

    Buitengewoon prettige KOBO E-Reader

    Dit is mijn 3e Kobo reader, de vorige was een Aura one (na 7 jaar kapot gevallen), wat de allereerste Kobo voor mij was, weet ik niet meer.De Clara 2E heeft een iets kleiner formaat en ook scherm, 6″ in plaats van 6,8″ .Ik merk daar niets van, wat ik wel merk is dat hij sneller is en lichter/prettiger in de hand ligt.Een goede stap dus.
