Didn't work!

erhogan, Ebay
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Looked great, came with directions, cord, and leather cover...BUT...it refused to charge! I tried everything. I don't think it was the problem with the cord, becuase it seemed to get power.

Read Warranty & Save Your Receipt

W. James D. Easton, Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: My unit died after 5 weeks. SONY is absolutely adamant about receipts for warranties, so make sure you save yours. The replacement unit had someone else's name and telephone # indelibly engraved on the front. Calls to the "Customer Satisfaction Center" usually simply hung up without getting through.

Unfortunate Purchase

19 December 2007
  • Summary: I made the unfortunate choice of purchasing a PRS505 after trying one out at a Borders Book Store. I was impressed with the easy to read type, as well as the easy to manipulate controls.

ALL THIS TECHNOLOGY AND NOT DYSLEXIC FRIENDLY!

Julie A. Brant "image - Underdog", Amazon
15 June 2010
  • Summary: All the technology available to make this product unique and give access to disability people, especially students that have dyslexia. Never mind the music, they should install the ability to allow the book to read to you from either a read and write gold programme or textaloud.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

DMPiper, Amazon
15 June 2010
  • Summary: !!!!DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!! I have had one of these for just over a year, and read less than half a dozen books on it. After picking it up to continue reading from the night before, the screen has developed a 1 inch square in the top corner which is unreadable.

PRS 505 eBook Reader

BookFans "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger", Amazon
15 June 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this product after seeing the din about eBook readers and I was just waiting to open the pack when the reader arrived. But this excitment was short lived once I started using the reader. I guess this is the most horrible product Sony could have ever designed.

Problems with item

Miss L. Carter "Lucy Carter", Amazon
15 June 2010
  • Summary: I wondered if any other customers had any problems with this item. This was a gift for my mother's 60th birthday and she was thrilled to bits with it that is until it stopped working. Sony have refused to mend it unless we pay a ridiculous amount of money (more than it cost!
