- Hated It. by Glory on 10/4/2014
I originally got the kobo arc 3 weeks ago ,but I had to end it back because the box did not have a charger. I sent it back. During the process I called them maybe 7 times to make sure it was actually coming to me. It took 2 weeks for them to get the kobo with it's charger to me. I got an email says that they would be willing to set up the kobo. If I had only know I would have tried harder to get into my email. I got the kobo back 2 days ago. It has been a pain. I have gone to the library,Chrystal'si,Wendy's, and a bunch of other places to get wifi. I was only able to get through the second step to the kobo up. I even tried to
set it up using my computer. All I got was error #7 and when I did get the wifi and it started to update the wizard set would mess up. I almost finished the update that you must do if you want to use it but when the kobo rebooted it said error. And I called kobo it gave me their website. This is the second I called them. I am sending this kobo right back as soon as possible. Kobo is terrible. You can not get their customer service. This is my first tablet and i'm 14. Why must I go through all this mess. I have no idea what other tablet I will get ,but iI know for sure I am never going to get a kobo item.
- Great Tablet With Great Customer Service by bookworm on 8/9/2013
I was gifted a Kobo Arc for my birthday, but something went wrong with it. We still had the receipt so we called customer service and after determining we could not do anything on our end, they sent me a replacement tablet and I sent in mine. I received excellent customer service and was happy with their prompt responses....Unfortunately, my replacement tablet was stolen from my home 1 1/2 weeks after getting it so now I have to buy a new one, but I will be buying Kobo Arc because of the wonderful job they did standing behind their product and taking care of me as their consumer.
- LOVE IT! by Barbara on 4/12/2013
This is my 3rd Kobo, I bought the manual one then upgraded to the touch, now I am on the Kobo Arc.
I bought this Arc so I could put my beading magazines on it. My husband keeps telling me I have to throw out my magazines to make room...so this was a perfect solution!
I am also a crazy reader and our house is over run with books, but now they are all on my Arc for easy access!
- Tablet great, Kobo company, not so by Terry on 4/2/2013
I loved my tablet, but I wouldn't purchase another Kobo device or recommend anyone else to. Mine broke when it fell from night stand after being plugged in to charge. The charge port broke loose, and the company does not offer any way to repair damage. They also do not make parts available to customers to have it repaired, not to them or to any technician. If you break it, you are out a tablet, and they have to say is "sorry for the inconvenience".
