Summary: I purchased this product because I did not research it for what I was really truly looking for. I took for granted that it had WIFI and I would be able to download EBooks directly from the internet.
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.

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...

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.

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.
