What’s the Best eBook Reader Model of All Time?

I’ve tested and used dozens of ebook readers over the past 8 years since launching The-eBook-Reader.com, and sometimes people ask me what’s the best ebook reader of them all if I had to choose only one.

Size and PDF Comparison: Sony DPT-RP1, Kobo Aura One, Kindle (Video)

Some people were wondering how the Kobo Aura One with KOReader compares with the Sony DPT-RP1 when it comes to reading PDFs.

The second generation Kobo Aura H2O was released this past week, so let’s go ahead and see how it compares to the larger Kobo Aura One that was released last fall. As mentioned yesterday in the Kobo Aura H2O first impressions review, I feel like the Aura One is the far superior device, with a […]

Ever since it was first released last September Kobo has only had it available for short periods of time before selling out again.
