The ereader is easy to read, the features are easy to setup once you have wifi, which I didn't at first. I think this ereader is a good buy for the money.

Kobo e-reader software is the worst. Poor customer care; unable to resolve simple issues ..... broken promises. Kobo books are expensive!!!!! Compare kobo books to amazon, you will see. I am heading back to Walmart to return this product and I will purchase a Kindle......I love Walmart.
My wife loves her Kindle....I should have listened to her!!!!!
Do not buy this product!!!!!

More difficult to set up than expected

The touchscreen was extremely sensitive (didn't respond to the calibration); and the information that was supposed to be preloaded did not seem to be loaded. It appeared on the screen but when I went into the Settings it showed "0 MB" for each app. Maybe we just got a bad one. I was really hoping it would work out because my 10 year old really wanted to have access to music, books and movies. This is obviously cheaper than a Nook Tablet and I thought it would be a good way to introduce her to being responsible for an item and "earn" her way up. But it needs to work first. We can't even get a book on here. She recently asked me to return this and get something else.
