For readers who want the best, Kobo Aura HD is your eReader of choice. Ultimate clarity Kobo Aura HD takes E Ink clarity to the next level. ClarityScreen+ delivers an incredibly crisp, clear reading experience because with a 1440 x 1080 resolution and 265 dpi, it's the best E Ink screen on the market.* Enjoy a completely glare-free eReading experience anytime, and rest assured that your eReader's screen is durable in the face of scratches and drops.

Read in the ideal light ComfortLight is a breakthrough front-light that's perfect for reading in any lighting condition. The revolutionary ComfortLight is incredibly even and adjustable for a beautifully lit nighttime reading experience.

And with a 1 GHz processor, page turns are seamless - just like flipping paper pages. It's the complete print experience, enhanced by the technological advances only possible in a Kobo eReader.
