Cons: The screen is the worst I've seen. I had a Nook I was happy with it because the screen is very READABLE almost without a glare and reflection. I returned it back to the store because I prefer something that I can write my own notes on the book. So I thought PRS-600 is a better choice since it has a stylus and you can add a note to a page just like when you scribble on your old books for something you want to highlight and append your ideas. But PRS-600 is very unreada...
Excerpt: About four years ago during Black Friday (online) shopping, my mother spotted the Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600. She was all excited because it was bright pink, an e-reader and very cheap (at the time). Before doing any research, she hastily ordered it without my knowledge. When the e-reader arrived, I thought it was pretty cool because it was touch and it was bright pink. However, I have to say it was sort of a disappointment.
Summary: Reader itself is not bad, but well overpriced for what it is. Would never buy another of these. A friend bought one at the same time as me and she also has had to send back for repair. Next one WILL be a Kindle.
Pros: Once set up it's easy to use, and lightweight
Cons: Screen difficult to read in sunlight, battery life not as good as Sony states and have already had to send back to Sony for repair, luckily it was still in warranty. The main gripe about this is the software you must use to load books, its clumsy and slow. Reader Library freezes regularly and web help site is terrible.so
