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. However, it has no Wi-Fi or 3G capability. Loading new books on the unit is very cumbersome and you need some form of PC to do it.

Digital Reader....

  • Summary: This product is to easy to navigate and get around with downloading books. I have only one complaint, but it is a big one. There is no back light. I would not recommend this product because it is hard on the eyes when you are reading. I contacted Sony, and they informed me that nothing could be done about this problem. If I had known, I would not have bought this reader.

The PRS-600 is good if you absolutely must have a touchscreen.

  • Excerpt: Overview The sony reader touch edition (PRS-600) is a great item for those who absolutely must have a touchscreen E-Ink Reader, otherwise a Kindle might be a better choice. I have owned this reader for a little over three months and have used it extensively. PROS CONS OTHER THOUGHTS OS Compatibility I have used Calibre to upload books to my reader through Windows XP, Mac OS-X 10.6, and Ubuntu 9.10. It works great on all systems.

Great basic reader

  • Excerpt: I cannot lie. I love my Sony Reader. It stores an obscene amount of books and the Reader Library is easy to navigate. As far as the reader itself, it's battery life is unsurpassed. It is very lightweight and easy to carry around in my purse. There are a few drawbacks to the Sony Reader though. The screen may scratch easily without a screen protector and there is no backlight or color technology associated with this reader.

Sony ereader good not awesome

  • Excerpt: Sony ereader good not awesome. This title is due to the fact that I expected more from SOny. I was waiting for so long to buy an e reader and decided for Sony because of brand and the product features. It has a small screen and lacks the vivecity of the new e readers. Not many resources and I have seen easier to manage readers. Not worth the price.

  • Summary: The screen is so shiny it is hard to read. I am getting a clear cover I hope will reduce the gloss. It holds a lot of files but takes a long time to boot up.

Would not buy again.

  • Summary: As soon as I received it was very disappointed, should have bought a Kindle. Heavier than a Kindle at 10 oz. The most disappointing thing is the fact that it DOES NOT connect to the internet. You must down load your books to your computer, then attach your Reader to your computer with included wire set, and down load to your Reader. This is not make the Reader valueable when traveling, or just want a new book. Could not turn around and sell it as soon as possible.

Sony Touch PRS-600

  • Excerpt: The Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 is probably the best model I have ever seen. To start off with, the whole screen is touch accessed which I really like. This gets rid of all the other buttons on previous models and making it easier to handle. I wouldn’t exactly say that it is easier to use because it isn’t. It still performs what it is supposed to do and that would be it.

Sony Touch PRS-600

  • Excerpt: The Sony Reader PRS-600 touch edition is probably the best model I’ve ever seen. For starters, the touch screen is available that I really like. This gets rid of all the other buttons on previous models and easier to handle. I would not say exactly that it is easier to use because it is not. He returned to what was supposed to do and what it. It essentially allows users to select and then buy books to read while traveling or simply at home.
