Welcome back to another Good e-Reader Comparison Video! Today we take a look at the brand new Kobo Aura H2O and the Kobo Aura. You will get a sense on how the eBook experience plays out in both PDF and ePub books and if either model appeals to you.

This comparison video looks at the hardware and what the primary differences are. This is most useful if you have an older device and are thinking of possibly upgrading. As an added bonus, we do a side by side comparison looking exclusively at the front-lit display.
