PC Magazine
22 January 2010
  • Conclusion: A low-cost, small-form-factor device, the Sony Reader Pocket Edition bests other e-book readers on design, if not features and performance.
  • Pros: Affordable. Compact. Solidly built. Compatible with the ePub format, which Amazon's Kindle doesn't support.
  • Cons: No wireless book downloads. No AC adapter. Sony Book Store doesn't include newspapers, magazines or blogs.

  • Conclusion: Though some will lament the passing of the Sony PRS-505, both the Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 and the Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 are excellent ebook readers that are well-made, attractive and have a bookstore with an ample number of commercial titles behind them.
  • Pros: Like the name says, it's pocketable. Great display.
  • Cons: No expansion card slot, display too small for PDFs with embedded graphics.

  • Pros: tolles Display, extrem simples Interface, erledigt seine Arbeit sehr gut
  • Cons: legale E-Book-Downloads sind noch eine Seltenheit, Speicher nicht erweiterbar
