Good Bookholder

E. Tucker "wisdom seeker", Amazon
30 October 2009
  • Summary: I found the Sony to be quite useful in holding many books, especially while traveling. It's wonderful not to have to carry the actual paper copies, and there are many titles to choose from through electronic sources.

Good, but not as good as Kindle 2

Sheryl Katz, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: A lot of the reviews published here on Amazon are pretty old for technology. As an avid reader who has both the Kindle 1 and Kindle 2 as well as the Sony PRS 505, I'd like to add some observations in light of the current state of the market.

Only a reader

Justin Lee, Amazon
3 February 2009
  • Summary: The pages display very well and the Sony software for the reader is simple enough for anyone who has used iTunes or other multimedia consolidation programs. The reader is a little slower than I have patience for, and figuring out all of the formats of books you can use as well as signing up for all...

Reader OK, store bad

Malina Kirn, Amazon
13 March 2008
  • Summary: Think of the Sony Reader as an etch-a-sketch. Images are displayed in black and white, with no backlighting. The next page is displayed by 'wiping' the old image and putting the new one up. It requires minimal power to sit and show a page, so battery life is a function of how many pages you read.

A good reader, a reasonable price

Michael D. Raes "WereSquirrel", Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: This was a fantastic find for me. Both as a professional and as an avid reader. It is however, a device designed for a very specific purpose. That wasn't meant to be a negative though. Just a comment for those ready to use the device for unusual pursuits.

But what about the service?

M. Sharkansky, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: I owned an ebook of a previous model (PRS-500), and I must say franky, it was a great thing - all the backdraws aside, I used it a lot and enjoyed it a lot. 5 stars without hesitation.

The truth about PDF!

JerryWithaJ, Amazon
12 November 2007
  • Summary: I've decided on a rating of 3 stars. If the E-reader is to be used for reading electronic books, I'd give it 5 stars. All the raves others give it are well-deserved. I had a different purpose in mind. I was intrigued by E-reader's claimed ability to handle PDF files.

  • Excerpt: Пользовалась читалкой года три, никаких не было нареканий. Батарейка начала выдыхаться через два с половиной, легко купила не ибее новую и установила.
  • Pros: - Удобный и понятный в использовании агрегат. Никаких тебе регистраций через интернет, читай себе книги и не заморачивайся.
  • Cons: - Для ридера тяжеловат.
