I've used e-readers from Sony, iRex, and Kobo. The iRex had an 8" screen that I absolutely loved, but it was delicate and a bit too large to fit in most coat pockets. The 6.8" screen on the Aura HD is the perfect compromise. The high resolution makes text exceptionally crisp and easy on the eyes. Justified text looks excellent on the Aura HD, with none of the gaps between words that other units have displayed.

An inexpensive Premium Folio Leather Cover Built-in Magnetic Closure and Auto Sleep Mode from coodio will put the unit to sleep and wake it up when you close and open the cover.

The front light works well, and battery life is excellent. Page turning is responsive. I was so happy with the Aura HD that I bought a second one for my wife to replace her Sony PRS-T2.

The Aura HD isn't perfect. It's thicker than I would like and the wave shape of the back adds to the thickness, especially when you add in a cover. It's also rather heavy for an e-reader. For those who do a lot of annotation, the highlighting feature is twitchy, but the onscreen keyboard is very good.

5 weeks after purchase the Aura HD developed a horizontal 1/2 inch wide blank area. Kobo refused to honor their 1-year warranty because I purchased from Amazon, which is not one of their "Partners". I am now trying to return it to the Amazon store where I purchased it.

The Kobo Aura HD worked nicely before this problem. Page turns sometimes took repeated taps, navigation is somewhat awkward, responsiveness is slower than it should be. The light is really nice, the cheap magnetic leather cover turned off Kobo as advertised. Capacity is great. This is definitely not an Apple product!
