Their lighting system was pretty good, albeit with a tendency to output a blueish hue, but it's always been well behind the industry leader which is amazon with its paperwhite implementation. As far as I can tell from the videos they 've not improved on it with the aura hd. Now in terms of choice of font, margins and line spacing, I don't know which device you are referring to that doesn't have user settings for these. They all pretty much allow you to read with your preferences, kobo has more customizations that's all, and you can hack the kindle relatively easily to get more customization there as well. And I 'd rather hack the kindle (though so far I am pretty content as is so I 've not hacked it, although I thought that would be what I 'd do first), so, yeah, I 'd rather hack a good and stable software for more choice than go with buggy frustrating software for the more options.

(am I the only one getting constant questions under my post to reply to for what I suppose is verification purposes? What's with that, first time I come across it in any forum.)
