Newer isn't always better. Great for students!
on February 2, 2015
I love this e-reader.
After my 2nd gen Kindle finally died I wanted to replace it with something that still had e-ink but handled PDFs better.
I am a post-graduate student and love that I can take notes on my articles and textbooks using the stylus.
The only downside is that since the Sony e-reader book store no longer exists, you cannot buy books directly on the reader and the default software it comes with isn't what you need. You need to use the Kobo bookstore or get ePUB books and PDFs from other sources and then transfer them to the reader with a cable. It was annoying at first since I was so used to instant purchases from anywhere on my Kindle but once you get used to it, it is easy. I would take off half a star for this if I could (so 4.5 stars is my true rating).
