Summary: I bought 3 used e-readers PRS-600. Batteries works for about 3-4 days of hard reading average without recharging (they are losing 1 bar per day). New PRS-300, I had before, held charge for 2-3 weeks, PRS-505 - about 1 week. Probably brand new batteries are working much better.

Summary: I like this item because it does not require WI FI It does bother me that sony is making it hard to find there readers and I have invested alot in e-books. Kindle or sony need to make it where you can read on either reader or sony needs to keep up and make there readers easy to get.

Summary: Nice basic ebook reader with two sd memory card slots for added storage space.Third Sony I have owned. All have been purchased on eBay at a great price.I've given two away to first time eReaders to learn on.
Summary: My second of these, one for me, one now for wife. Old enough now to be quite reasonably priced used,but plenty of memory available with 2 expansion slots. Sony library app. not the best, but other good ones available free on line.
This is a basic e-reader but not a good or great reader.

Summary: I am so glad I only paid $20 (including shipping) for this unit. I bought it just to see what it was like. I would guess that this is the very base model of the Sony readers because it is not a very good one. The functions (very few) and the print quality seem to be OK.
