It works but......

Guro305, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: ....Sony's format for this reader is a bit of a pain. If you have issues with your computer and the software you will never be able to get it to work again. I had to create a whole nother profile just for the reader. Other than that it's pretty easy to use.

Sony eReader

Clint Ausburn, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my wife for Valentine's Day in 2010. She reads about 3 books a month. She loves the eReader. It's easy to use, has sleek design, lightweight, excellent battery life, and very durable.

  • Summary: Great product. Gave it to the wife for Christmas. The only drawback has been the screen is not backlit/you have to have an accessory light to read in low light conditions. But, She loves it and that is what's important.

Decent simple book reader

R. Mason, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had the PCR-300 for a few weeks now. I have limited experience with other readers. So to some extent this is a review of the eReader concept as much as the Sony in particular. I did do a lot of web research though, and picked the Sony for a few reasons: - It is cheap ($179/free shipping).

Just OK

scott s., Newegg
16 February 2010
  • Summary: The most I would ever spend on an e book reader is the amount for this one. Overall opinion of these readers is...they are overrated. But people seem to flock towards electronic "toys", so I guess they are here to stay.
  • Pros: Reads books, period.
  • Cons: No backlight. Expensive as it was and was not going to pay $100 more for the version with a light. Already had to reset because it wouldn't turn on and load. Using USB is not a big deal though. Takes only a minute, if that.

eBooks are too expensive, screen is too small

Anonymous, Newegg
16 October 2009
  • Summary: Larger screens are always better. It doesn't matter which ebook one gets, screens of this size really leave one wanting a larger screen.
  • Pros: It works as advertised and the product itself is excellent. The entire system is intuitive and easy to use out of the box.
  • Cons: It's a little slow to respond - either changing pages or returning to the menu. But the real "gotcha" is the price of the books - they are ridiculous. Most of the time, the savings are a dollar or two - no printing, no shipping, no shelving, no middle man and all one saves is a couple bucks? Comp...

Hundreds of books and very easy on the eye to read.

  • Excerpt: These handy little readers where out before the iPad and don't do anywhere near as many things as they do. They are basically only for reading ebooks. These are becoming more popular as you can pay far less for the books than the paper version.

ok if you don't want many books!

severed head, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Bought this after alot of debating, however, it is not as good as you'd expect. I saw it held 'up to 350 books' and realised this depends on the file size etc but guessed even if I had 50% stored that should be over 150 books - fine for my study. Put 32 on and attempted to put another...

Bezes at the counting house counting out his money

1st2thebar, Dooyoo
6 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Introduction: For a company that deals with technological wizardry, Sony had opted for a traditional 'Last Century styled MP3 Player' design for their PRS-300. It certainly doesn't emulate the traits of a paper filled oblong that has a spine, and no smells of old must mixed with dying brain-cells...

Older e-reader, though prices don't really reflect this

Seren Ade, Amazon
28 January 2010
  • Summary: I'm not altogether thrilled with this older-model Sony reader, bought as a present for my friend's pink (colour, not artist)- and reading-obsessed 10-year old. My biggest gripe relates to colour.
