Had my KG for a few days, replaced my KT, upto now i am very happy with it, have not tried custom fonts as yet (not a problem with KT). my local WHSmith had both the mini and glo on display but the Liverpool branch had an area of the floorspace set aside for all things Kobo with a company rep there too,
The light was the main reason for purchase and its excellent, mine seems very even throughout the screen and havnt spotted any blotches or other issues! Loaded up my library thru Calibre with no issues, updated thru Kobo desktop again problem free.
I havent really noticed the higher res screen but the fonts and detail do seem a lot smoother, there are still things i have not looked at in detail as yet. It does however seem to be definatley quicker in operation and page turns (my
KT would sometimes seem to "bog down")
Have had a Kindle keyboard, kobo wifi, sony prs350 and a kobo touch and the Glo is upto now the best of the bunch
