Kobo Arc 7 worth $50?

Chapters.Indigo is selling it for 50 percent off.

Do you think it is worth 49.97?


I already have Kobo Glo....that been healthy for the last 5 years. Not interested in it's e-reading capabilities...unless it reads manga far better than the glo.

Want to get a cheap tablet for recording video....but not sure if the camera is good enough.

Is the 1.3 MP camera good? Do the speakers pick up audio well?

"speakers" do not pick up audio, that is done by microphone. NB the arc only outputs mono sound, so it may only record in mono.
i recently sold mine for UK£60 - that was the 64Gb version
good tablets for the price, a little heavy by modern standards maybe

but 7 inch is too small for manga ?

and only one front facing camera, there is no rear camera, so ok for recording selfies only ?

not worth it.

VGA 480 camera...bs for a tablet.

The older model was a respectable for 720PP HD.

Returned item.
