This Sony Reader is a fantastic tool for those who just want to read. It offers support for a wide variety of document formats and can be used for reading from that variety. From text documents to Microsoft Word document, from PDF ebooks to ePub ebooks, the reader offers a wide variety of material that it can present.
The very long life of the battery and the solid metal construction of the device make it easy to use it for hours getting work done or getting entertainment and/or enlightenment from reading. It is quick and responsive compared to many eReaders--including Sony's upgrade to the model.
It is flawed, but no more so than all the other e-ink devices, in my opinion. The poor contrast of dark grey text on light grey background is hard on my aging eyes. The touch screen does have a bit of noticeable glare, but I wouldn't trade off the glare for lack of touch functionality. The pages don't turn as quickly as I'd like them to. But I did my research and went to considerable trouble to get hands-on time with as many options as I could find before settling on the Sony. None of them are terribly impressive, but this is the best of the bunch.
After reading some reviews for the B&N Nook, I was fairly sure that I was going to get one. But when I went to the store to try it out, I was extremely disappointed. It was heavy, clunky, slow... the flashy LCD screen at the bottom only made the e-ink screen look gloomy and depressing by contrast (no pun intended).
I was never the least bit interested in buying a Kindle, because I rarely purchase new books. My local library has amazing used book sales several times a year and an extensive collection of ebooks available, so the ability to read them on my device was pretty high up on the list of important features. If I do decide to buy extremely current books in the future, I've found that Sony's Reader Store prices are comparable to Amazon, and the same freebies are usually available on both sites. I also have the Kindle software for my iPod, in case I'm desperate to read a book that isn't available anywhere else.
All in all, I'm thrilled with my purchase, although I'm certain this won't be my last digital reader. But now that I have it, I can patiently wait for the technology to catch up to my hopes and expectations.
