NOOK v Kindle v Kobo – Which is the best for me?
If you don’t know your Nooks from your Glos, and talk about EPUB and mobi leaves you scratching your head, don’t despair! It’s pretty simple to compare the eBook reader market leaders: Kobo, Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. Here are the main differences:
E Ink screen – The E Ink screen is what sets eBook readers apart from other devices. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t tire out and damage your eyes if you look at it for long periods (unlike tablet and computer screens). It’s the closest thing you can get to reading a regular book page, and it allows eBook readers to run for weeks on a single charge. Kobo, Nook and Kindle all have state of the art E ink screens. The 2014 released Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo Glo have the newest version, while the Barnes & Noble Nook Glowlight is a generation behind.
Reading lights – All three manufacturers’ newest editions include a built-in reading light which allows you to read in the dark. The reading lights for the similarly priced Kindle Paperwhite, Nook Glowlight, and Kobo Glo are all comparable, while the Kindle Voyage, at a higher price point has a light that automatically adjusts to suit the conditions.
DRM Scheme – The Amazon Kindle has its own file ecosystem – which could be irksome if you want to use your reader to upload your own ebooks that you didn’t purchase directly from Amazon. Kobo supports the widest variety of ebook formats, including graphic friendly CBZ and CBR files. The Nook supports the globally compatible EPUB and PDF file types, and most of the books on the Barnes & Noble store come in EPUB format. Note that with the use of a free and simple file converter like Calibre, you can read most formats on most devices.
Price – The Barnes & Noble Nook just beats out the competition as the most budget friendly eReader with similar specs.
