Pros and cons

According to our e-reader expert
  • You can read in the bath tub or next to the pool without worries, thanks to the waterproof casing.
  • Comfortlight Pro automatically adjusts the backlight of the Koba Libra based on your environment, while also filtering blue light.
  • The E-ink screen is energy-efficient, which means you can use it on a single charge for weeks.
  • It doesn't include an adapter for charging via a socket, only a micro USB cable.
  • It doesn't include a protective cover, so order a protective cover or one of our recommended combinations and prevent damage to the vulnerable screen.

    Ergonomic e-reader with great screen quality

    Robert | 22 October 2019 | In the version: Black | No accessories | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Nice in the hand
    • Physical buttons make browsing even easier
    • Battery lasts a long time
    • Great in combination with Sleep Cover
    • Not found

    In recent years I have been very satisfied with the Kobo Aura One. The size of the Aura One in combination with the screen quality and the backlight more than made up for the price difference compared to other Kobo e-readers. Much to my regret, I recently sat down on my Aura One and unfortunately it did not survive. So I had to look for a replacement.

    In the denouement of my search, there was a battle between two models: the Kobo Libra H2O and the Kobo Forma. Apart from the recessed screen, the models differ only in price and size. Because there are no other differences between the two models, my choice ultimately fell on saving €100.

    I have now owned the Libra for several weeks and have not regretted the choice for a moment. The wider rim makes the Libra much more comfortable to hold than the old Aura One and the buttons are a really great addition. In addition, I notice that I personally find the slightly smaller screen much more pleasant to read. I am also more inclined to take the Libra on the road.

    Although it remains a very sad incident, I am now so satisfied with the Libra H2O that it considerably eases the pain of losing the Aura One.

    An e-reader that is easy, good and pleasant to use.

    • Ereader fits comfortably in the hand.
    • You can easily put ebooks on the eReader.
    • You can determine the screen brightness.
    • The screen can be used left and right handed without difficulty turning the pages
    • You can lock the screen to landscape or portrait.
    • If you buy ebooks outside of kobo or bol.com, you have to connect it to the computer in order to transfer the ebooks.
    • There is no plug with only a cable with USB connection.

    I recommend the ereader.

    In the past week I have been able to enjoy my new eReader.

    The e-reader fits nicely in the hand.

    I have set my eReader to portrait mode, so I can also easily read lying or on my side without the screen rotating. Because you can easily turn the eReader, it is also possible to use the buttons on the left or right. I alternate this while reading, because when I lie on my left side I find reading with the left easier. Rotating the screen is smooth and fast.

    You can set the brightness in terms of light for yourself, so that reading ebooks becomes even more enjoyable. To also read in the evening, you can reduce the blue light and set it to your own liking. It is also possible to set a bedtime so that the ereader gradually reduces the blue light.

    I have easily put my old ebooks on the ereader via the computer. Recently I also bought an Ebook via bol.com and by synchronizing my eReader the new ebooks were quickly on my eReader. Unfortunately, before buying from other stores you always have to connect your eReader to your computer. This is not a problem for me, but it is a drawback that you cannot send your ebook to the eReader in any other way.

    At the moment, after a week of intensive use, I am very satisfied with my new ereader.

    Nice and convenient, categorizing a little more difficult.
    • Screen big enough
    • Nice buttons on the side
    • Font/size customization options
    • Books don't categorize via PC

    Nice screen, enough customization options, nice buttons on the side for scrolling up/down. Not super fast, but that's typical of e-books themselves. Battery lasts well. Buying a cover (sleep cover) is recommended. Should have gotten one after a few days.

    What is more difficult is making your "collections". If you want to categorize books the way I wanted to (I had put a lot of books on them), you have to put them on the tablet first and then categorize them. That can take a very long time. So you cannot connect the e-reader to your PC and then create folders and use your books there. It is (as far as I know) only possible via the e-reader itself. Well, that does not affect the device itself. Recommended.

    Even an 83 year old with aversion to computers can work with it like this

    Expensive, but absolutely worth its price. Also for the twea
    • waterproof
    • light
    • great backlight
    • battery life
    • hacks
    • size a bit clumsy
    • sleep cover a must
    • weight sleep cover

    I bought this e-reader to replace an old one, without backlight, of which the screen became a bit jaded. It's a fantastic e-reader that has been well thought out. The screen tilts automatically, making it also suitable for left-handers. You can configure the reader completely to your liking. Font, font size, brightness, bluelight filter and portrait or landscape mode can be easily adjusted while reading by tapping the center of the page.

    From the main screen, there are even more settings such as header and footer (reading progress), flip buttons, WiFi, date/time, power saving and privacy, etc.

    If you want even more, typing "devmodeon" in the search bar will enable the developer options. With this you can invert the screen (black with white letters), set the angle at which the screen rotates, or reset your reader. You then have to go from the home screen to "settings" -> "Device information", scroll all the way down and then choose "developer options".

    Some people cite "the plastic look" as a drawback. Now I think "plastic" is a dirty word. I prefer to speak of (high-quality) plastic. It is light, strong, scratch-resistant and pleasant to hold. I wouldn't want a metal or glass e-reader.

    Buying books is very easy via the reader itself, or the PC. You can also easily put your own e-books on the device (click and drag). The progress of the reading is synchronized, if you have Wi-Fi turned on. This allows you to continue reading on another device.

    I find the PC software rather limited. It would be nice if you could organize books easily and quickly, but that is only possible on the reader itself. I've also had a few crashes.

    Using the device becomes even more enjoyable when you have the sleep cover. With this, the device automatically goes into sleep mode as soon as you close the cover and when you open the cover, the book opens on the page where you left off. The disadvantage is that the cover is quite heavy (111 grams compared to 197 grams for the device) and that it is not water resistant. Fortunately, you can quickly and easily remove the reader from the cover.

    Furthermore, the format of the reader is quite large and almost square. As a result, the device does not fit in your pocket. It does have the advantage that the text does not run too wide when reading in landscape.

    A very good e-reader
    • Nice picture and very sharp
    • Sturdy housing
    • Light weight
    • Easy operation
    • The battery lasts a long time

    Great for reading books, much better than a tablet like an iPad. I'm very happy with it.

    Good for home and away
    • easy to grab; you will read faster
    • Handy on the road
    • speed of browsing is disappointing and that sometimes leads to a page overshoot after impatiently tapping a second time.

    I like this e-book better than I thought. You will read more and more.

    Good price/quality ratio
    • Compact, but not too small
    • light
    • Easy to hold
    • Physical Buttons
    • No Dropbox integration for now (as with the Forma)

    The Libra H2O has a pleasant weight and shape to hold for a long time. Via Caliber I was able to transfer my existing EPUB files with ease. The design is beautiful and the automatic adjustment of the light color over time is very convenient. The e-reader can last a long time with a charged battery and charging is also very fast.
