amazon Kobo Aura HD reviews
Design and screen
The back of Kobo Auro HD is specially designed, Vice President and General Manager of the company has for von this is the Porsche of eReaders and is designed for people who want to start their eReading adventure.
The design of the Kobo Aura HD does not have many of the features except the back is like “Porsche’s eReaders.” Top edge arranged to help switch on / off, backlight button ComfortLight and signal lights. The bottom edge is the USB port charging and data transfer with a memory card slot. In addition the machine does not support adding other hardware keys for using the touchscreen e-ink.
At the top of machine place switch layout “sleep” pink, the light power and the screen light button. Kobo Aura HD support screen lights can help users to read in low-light conditions.
The machine feels solid in use but are fingerprints, design and screen contour unsightly. Machine have 6.8 inch, 1,440 x 1,080 resolution and 265 ppi using 1GHz processor chip. This is the screen resolution of the largest in the series reading now, but users should not expect the screen eReader lines because they are using e-ink screen. This type of screen for a long time loading page can not be as smooth as the tablet. In return, when looking at the screen the user can feel like you are looking at a sheet of paper, without feeling aches eyes as other electronic devices.
Kobo Aura HD is equipped ComforLight lights, this is the best lighting I have ever used on an e-ink device. If you put the Kindle Paperwhite beside Kobo HD Aura in a dark room, Aura HD will feature a lot more. Lighting simultaneously on Aura HD are on all 4 sides and not leaked light from the LEDs in the screen edges as on the Paperwhite. In the installation of Aura HD, the machine supports the light level, tested at the lowest level, Aura HD still lighter opponents Kindle Paperwhite.
Kobo Aura HD supports EPUB format, PDF, MOBI; Image formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF; Font formats: TXT, HTML, XHTML, RTF; Comic format: CBZ, CBR. Full users can download books online and then copy it to a USB connector. Another point of note is Aura HD can not read books if you purchased on Amazon Kindle.

If only the common ebook formats will not require a lot of memory, but Aura HD supports both PDF and image files to the memory card support is necessary and convenient to copy. Besides stored in the machine, Kobo also supports synchronization of up “cloud” if you buy the book at its store similar to Amazon.
According to the statement of Kobo, if everyday users to use the machine for 30 minutes reading, Aura HD can use 2 months with a full charge.
Kobo Aura HD is priced not cheap if compared to the Google Nexus 7 tablet and the Kindle Fire HD. You can do more with a tablet, and even reading the better experience with colorful magazine. But for reasons such as e-ink screen display similar to a sheet of paper, light weight, long time to use and most importantly not be distracted while reading, the reading device is always there a specific position in the market.
