Not the least bit impressed
Purchased this as a show special to use while on holidays. When I first received it, I did the set up, went to the Kobo site and downloaded three books and started to read one book (as of today only 1% read)to see how the e-reader would work. I then put Kobo back in the original box until this week when I took it out to charge it up for my vacation. I charged it and then tried to open a book, nothing would happen, had partial cover of book on screen and unable to access any function keys. Have dealt with on line customer service with live chat and also emailed them, They tell me it is physical damage sorry for my luck nothing they can do. This Kobo was kept in the box on a book shelf away from heat sources, etc. I asked how it could suffer physical damage and didn't receive a reply ... I am now out $$$ and no ereader ... not impressed
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very Disappointed now
from Victoria BC
I rated this ereader five stars when I first got it.Now 5 weeks later the Kobo mini will not take a charge it is basically useless to me. Once the battery goes in the Kobo you might as well throw it away as the batteries can't be replaced. I can't be bothered with the hassle of dealing with Kobo customer service as apparently is terrible. Will go out and buy another ereader and warn others not to buy this make.
I love my first e-reader!
I purchased the Kobo mini in white with a purple cover. I absolutely love it. Each electronic page is crisp and easy to read. I like that you can sync your Kobo account on either a Windows or Mac operating system. The battery life is great, and the size is perfect when you are travelling light. It's the perfect e-reader for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been a lover of kobo for ages now. I read often and this smaller size is perfect for your pocket or purse and very light weight too.
Mixed feelings about Kobo Mini
I got this at an excellent price as a showstopper.The problems that I have with the Kobo are not thefault of TSC I want to make that clear. The problem I have are the same as Debbie from Alberta. The tech industry thinks everyone knows all the slang and tech language. Guess what we don't!No instructions came with device. You look online and there are some instructions but I found them difficult to understand. It basically took me two whole days to get connected to kobo and my local library. Once it was done it was great. Until it started to freeze,skip pages, go backwards etc. When it works it is fine when it doesn't which is 70% of time it is one big pain.Would not buy this brand again. Also would get thebacklit kind.

I got this Kobo mini as a showstopper a few months ago, and I am really enjoying it, I have now started reading again, I have had no problems with it..easy to get books, and also easy to recharge..
Bought the Kobo mini as a showstopper
By Debbie W
I have been using my Kobo mini for only a few days now and already so frustrated. It locks up and I'm constantly having to power off and back on to get it working right. Sometimes the page advance tap spot actually reverses the pages, often the Reading Menu won't go away when I am done with it. I like the idea, the look and the feel of the Kobo mini...although was surprised that everything was in black nd white..no color covers. It's cute and would be very handy IF it responded to the taps properly but just adds agrivation to my reading truth be known. Is it just me? I have read the userguide so am doing things correctly but it just doesn't respond sometimes. I guess it will be going back...So disappointed. :(
Perfect book size
Invested in white one with berry cover when offered as the Showstopper in February. Feels good in the hand. Easy to read and love that the battery lasts so long. Kobo sends emails with book suggestions and discounts frequently. I am reading much more now that I have my kobo mini. Also light weight and travels well.
