Summary: If you just want an eReader, this is one of the best if not the best. The metal case is more durable than the plastic. Sony was the first. Contrast and readability are great! As Sony and others added touch screen capabilities the contrast weakened dut to the extra layer on the screen.
Long life. Metalic case. Cardreader. One of the best reader.

Summary: Advantages: A good screen (compared to Sony T1 and this new generation, the quality of the screen is almost similar). Pretty quickly flipped through the pages. A metalic case (looks good, durable, but heavier book). Quality leather cover. Built SD and MS Card reader.
Summary: I ALWAYS WANTED A READER, AND I SAW THIS ONE AND I HAD TO HAVE IT. BECAUSE IT WAS PRELOADED WITH 600+ BOOKS AND IT'S SO EASY TO USE. THERE'S NOTHING I CAN SAY BAD ABOUT IT. I SORT OF WENT ALITTLE OVERBOARD, NOW I HAVE 4 READERS AND THEY ALL ARE WONDERFUL AND IT'S SO EASY TO DOWNLOAD BOOKS.
Summary: Yes the PRS-505 is older technology. So what. This was bought to supplement my first PRS-505 which has had a rough 5 years with me already. It is small enough to be handy, light enough to easily be held, easy to read and with an SD card capable of holding several hundred books in the TXT,PDF,or EPUB...
Summary: I have had a Sony ereader for about 3 years now and I love it.I can take a library with me on trips and I love to read. The Prs 505 is great since it has the slots for the sd cards and can store more books. I have had on my old one 900 books including the ones on the storage card.
Terriffic product! Would reccommend it to any one.

Summary: This reader is wonderful! My old one died and I searched for another to take its place. I could not have made a better choice.It was billed as used but I could not tell it. The reader was in pristine condition as were the cover and accessories.
Summary: I spent months comparing the various eReaders, formats supported, whether or not they could handle the DRM books available for temporary download from the library, ease of use and durability. Sony came out the winner, hands down.
Summary: We received out PRS-505 in a very timely manner and it works exactly as advertised. We are very satisfied with ereader This is our second PRS-505 and are very pleased with how easy they are to use.
