  • What features do you like/made you decide to buy your Kobo Glo?
  • What is the touch screen like? Is it capacitive like the Kindle Paperwhite? If not which is it? Infrared? Which is better, capacitive or infrared?
-I have it for about two weeks.No crases so far, more than 4 books finished quite a few others browsed.It had a few bugs(with the Wifi mainly) but nothing critical or something I consider a deal breaker.

-Until now I haven't had any problems,I could change the fonts/spacing in every e-book I had.Badly formatted epubs that caused the reader to misfunction were a problem for every ereader I had(3 so far),so I don't think it is a big problem or that uncommon.

-The light,the prize,the availability in my country and the fact that it isn't an Kindle.

-It has an infrared screen.
I can't realy compare it with the capasitive screen because my last reader that had one was the Orizon.Orizon is very slow due to prossesor(so every time I have to wait or tap twice) so I can't say with certainty which is better.So far the Glo screen is responsive and I faced few to none problems.
