1- I got it for a very good discounted price.
2- The newer version does NOT play audio. They removed the audio output jack.
3- The main feature added to the newer version is more or less software features. And according to reviews it has a better page turning transitions. Also they changed the hardware buttons design. To me it is not that big deal.
Why not kindle?
1- I prefer to store all my books in the reader. The Sony has a 2 GB internal memory + up to 32 GB on MicroSD card (Extra Accessory).
2- The Kindle library is much better than the Sony's, but I cannot use it in my country at the moment.
This is my first e-reader. I like the idea, since for me it is easier, faster and cheaper to get eBooks other than hard copies. Also I think I am saving some trees. I may consider a newer version of e-reader at the end of 2013. Then I will reconsider Kindle and others.
Most use reader for entertainment. I too enjoy reading a good book. But I bought my reader to keep my work notes and manuals on. I can access information that I would have to carry in seven large three ring binders. How? First Sony read text files. I loaded my work notes in text format. Later I wrote an epub book containing those same files. Writing an epub book is not that hard. Hey I do it right. Next I loaded the manuals from work into the Sony in pdf format, which it displays very well. Schematic drawing are particularly nice in pdf. I prefer the words in epub though so I will convert them. The epub schematics will be gif or png files linked to the text.
The only thing I can think of that would make the Sony better is if I could down load the notes I make on the reader directly to my computer. I could then include the note in my next e-book.
Oh, by the way my wife and daughter have another brand of reader. I have been able to convert some of my short stories from epub to to the format their reader takes.
What I did was search for all the problems and cures that are heavily reported while this was in shipping to me. But I forgot (being a Senior moment) to get the firmware update. So I downloaded books and the device screen totally stopped working. While I was on the main computer going to figure out the firmware update, the PRS-T1 finally flashed the screen and went into sleep mode. The buttons worked on it, but the screen was totally unresponsive until it did the screen flash and sleep mode. So I quickly shut it down.
I was able to hook it into the computer to get the firmware update from Sony and it has been perfect ever since. Wow love this thing. Plus it is even lighter weight than the PRS-300 and I did not think that was possible. But I had to weigh it on the office scales to be sure.
So far so good! I would recommend!
