New to Site...Not to Kobo

Hey all

I have had Kobo's for what seems like forever, but recently 2 of mine died. I am Trying to decide whether to repurchase the Glo (certified refurbished) or upgrade to an Aura...
From what I could see there isn't much difference, for the $50 more is the Aura worth it??

That's all a personal choice. For myself, I prefer the Glo over the Aura. I prefer the matte bezel instead of the completely flat top layer of the Aura that's like a tablet. And more important I much prefer the infrared touch system of the Glo over the capacitive touch of the Aura. I've also read a few posts where they said the fonts were not quite as sharp on the Aura as on the Glo.

Best would be if you could take a look at both at a local store. I'm sure you'll be happy with either choice though.

I have a Son Reader PRS-T1 and the screen of the T1 is better then the Glo. The H2O is better then the T1. So my recommendation is to go with the H2O. It's a very nice screen.
