This reader has seriously changed my life. I have read so many books since getting it. I bought my wife the pink one and she loved it so much that I had to get a silver one for myself. We are both nuts for them. Amazing purchase.

People pretty much know what an e-reader does. It reads books. I'll direct my comments to why this was the best e-reader for me and my wife.

============== The Good =================

1. It's small enough to fit in my shirt pocket. There is no wasted space to speak of around the edge of the screen. If you look at other e-readers there are large keyboards and other miscellaneous wasted space. That makes it a pain to take around. This is small enough to fit in a shirt or coat pocket very easily or be held in the hand, but still sports the five inch screen (which is one inch smaller on the diagonal than the Kindle, for example).

2. Touchscreen. The reason this doesn't have to have any nasty buttons is that it has a touch screen that works very well. You tap a word twice with your finger to bring up the definition. You brush your finger across the screen to silently turn the page. Brush across and hold to scroll quickly through the book. I wouldn't have thought the touchscreen was an important feature but it turns out to be extremely valuable. By the way, the touch screen isn't a second layer of plastic or something as other touchscreen devices tend to be. It uses some kind of infrared sensor. Anyway it works well. You can draw pictures and take notes with a stylus if you want to. Double tap at the top right of the page to "dog ear" the page, leaving a bookmark there.

3. The screen is very clear and looks great. It's that pearl display. The new kindle also has that.

I upgraded from the PRS 300 pocket reader. I love how small, thin and light the new pocket reader is. The 5" screen size stayed the same. For the most part I like the touch screen, although it is easy to accidentally turn the page. I really love that there is a dictionary now on the Pocket Reader and with the touch screen, looking up definitions is a breeze. The new e-ink makes the print easier to read. Also, you now have 6 font size choices, which I like. Overall, I recommend this new PRS 350 Pocket Reader.

I never thought I would want an e-reader, but after I got an Android phone I tried several reading apps and discovered there are thousands of out-of-copyright books I could download for free. Just using my phone I read all 900 pages of Fanny Burney's novel Cecelia and then I started borrowing e-books from my library. I was hooked.

After doing a lot of research online and then going to stores to compare it with the Nook and Kindle I chose this e-reader and have been extremely happy with it. It's small and light weight, and it feels beautiful with its almost satiny metal finish. The screen is amazingly clear, so bright I took it into a dark room to make sure it wasn't actually back-lit, and considering the dimensions of the reader the screen is quite generous in size--the navigation buttons are small but easy to use and the the only keyboard is virtual so it doesn't waste space that could otherwise be part of the display. I take a lot of notes when I read and the on-screen keyboard works fine. There is a stylus that slips securely into the side of the reader which is very useful for typing and even navigating, though most of the time I just use my fingers.

Like all e-readers, the 350 holds hundreds of books. To keep track of them you can order the books into collections, which are like computer folders. Since I am usually reading several books at once I created a "Currently Reading" collection to make it easier to find them. One of the features I like best about the 350 is how simple it is to look up words with the built in dictionaries--you just tap them twice. You can also take notes, highlight passages and bookmark pages. There are 6 font sizes to chose from so any book could be a Large Print edition if you want it to be.

I had the pocket PRS-300 which I really liked, but decided to upgrade. The PRS 350 seems better in every way. Lighter, smaller and the text is even easier to read. I really like the touch screen feature over the push buttons of the PRS 300. My friend had the older touch screen 6" model and it had a lot of glare and the text didn't stand out very well. This model doesn't have the glare issue and the text is darker and stands out from the background better. I also like that this model has a dictionary and search feature. I mainly use the reader with the public library and haven't had any issues with putting both epub and pdf books on the reader at the same time. I am very happy with my purchase.

I wasn't in a hurry to buy an e-reader, but thought it would be great to find one that was compatible with our local digital library. Decided on the Sony PRS-350 based on compatibility and also on the positive reviews, and I am very happy with my purchase.

The size is great and the screen has good contrast. The font options come in handy, especially if my glasses are not readily available. The color is lovely (more fuschia than pink) and it is refreshing to have something other than the silver/grey/black of so many electronic devices.

The battery charge lasts quite awhile (of course this will vary depending on each person's usage), and you can use it while it is charging. I have taken it on a few trips and though I also have a Kindle now, I still enjoy the Sony and take both readers with me when traveling.

I like that it is a dedicated e-reader; I spend enough time on the computer as it is and don't need a reader for that.

Note: The cover is worth buying; it provides protection for the screen, looks very nice and has a flexible built-in light with two settings. The light runs on one AAA battery that lasts a good while [again this will vary based on usage]. The reader easily fastens into the cover.

Update: Still going strong as of 6/11/2016.
