I bought it after a long research, so I've had no surprises so far. It's a good alternative compared to Kindle paperwhite and Nook Glow. I'm without space at home to have new paper books so an ebook reader is a valid choice to save space, money and a good excuse not to lend it to a friend, cause you know that when you lend a book it may never come back :) . Also the illumination feature is awesome since you don't bother anyone while reading at night in bed, on a bus,a train or a plane. Kobo Glo is quite easy to use, maybe the only drawback I found is that sometime you have to touch more than once to turn the page but I can take it. As most ebook readers, it does not get along very well with pdf files, so you'd better buy books in epub format.

This is an amazing eBook reader, totally worth its price!

I did a lot of research before buying it and do not regret it.

It has a very simple, but attractive design, a very good e-ink screen and an unbelievable battery life (mine lasted for about 30 hours with occasional Wi-Fi usage). There are no excessive features, only the things you need plus little things to keep you interested such as achievements.

Design of the interface is very clear, you don't really need a manual to understand anything. And I absolutely love the fonts they use in the menus.

The backlight is amazing, especially for the night reading lovers. A very soft light, it makes the screen look like a real book's page.

Besides, it is tiny, so it fits the pockets of my coat.

Absolutely happy with this e-reader.
Text is very sharp, you can also change font face, size, etc. Haven't used the store though. The lighting is very pleasant and bright too. The book itself has a rubberised case which is cool =)

Downsides:
- too bright lowest light level (but I can still easily read in the dark, there's no actual discomfort for the eyes)
- doesn't have a rotate mode (not sure that I really need it though)
- not all fonts support cyrillic (can't call this one critical since there's still few nice fonts I can choose from)

easy too read, the ink technology is great.
the light option makes it possible to read at night :)
the battery life however is somewhat short and the screen freezes at times. It is also inconvenient to move between bookmarks in the same book and for some reason it restarts the reading process back to 0% if you finish the book and press on it again.
