So, it arrived, and so did the cover, and I have to say I am very pleased. Got the pink version simply because it seemed to be the one suffering less from screen issues, and so far the screen looks fine, or rather, the light has no "bright spots".

True, just before writing I did put the Aura under a bright light, and I can see the "scratches" on about to top inch of the screen if I keep the device at a certain angle to the light, but had I not tried it udner a brigth artificial light I would never have known. Indeed, turning the light on ameliorates the problem, so I don't think I will return it.

Happy bunny with my new toy! When reading in the dark I can see it would be nice to have the night mode on, but with the lack of an internal SD card, I don't think I'll mess about...

Thanks joymreyes, it has been noted here as well :-)

I hope you'll have fun with your first lighted ereader The light is a real game changer in my opinion.

Mine should arrive today....here.

Downgraded to 3.1.1 and applied patch to allow advanced options to work with side loaded font. So all my lighted Kobo's are exactly the same in that respect.

Initial comparison...

The text on the Aura HD is significantly sharper.

Between the black Glo and the Aura....the text on the Glo is sharper.

I have to put an identical story on it to compare to my white Glo. (Yes the screens on my black and white are different). Ok, close, but hard to say. I think the text on the Glo is a little sharper, but the screen is yellower. The Aura is whiter.

At any rate, it's a keeper! I love the form factor and the 4gb memory. I'll probably unload a Glo during the summer.

I have discovered a pin prick of light. I didn't see it until I was reading with my glasses on. I am not complaining, just glad there's only one!

It reminds me of the Kindle 2 case that a flashy redhead I knew used to flaunt on trips to Boston. I always liked that shade of purple.

Finally, I've bought this one (black)! Thanks!

I've had a look at one in a store and I couldn't see any pin-holes or cross pattern. I'll have to look more closely next time.

Forget about the Aura! I'll take the couch!

Seriously: It looks nice. I've seen this type of case on Amazon.

I can't see it on mine at all, even with my glasses off. Not sure why.
