This is a basic e-reader but not a good or great reader.
9 June 2013
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.
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.
Not bad reader but Sony PRS-300 seems to be better
29 August 2011
Summary: Not bad reader, but touchscreen makes the screen a little glossy. Not very comfortable sometimes. + Can be russified. + Can play music. + Has touchscreen. + Has possibility to use memory cards. - Has glare on the screen.
Summary: I totally agree with those who gave a 3 star rate. The software reminds me of the nineties. Having been reading ebooks in palms, smartphones and ppc's to read from this Sony 600 reader is a complete regression. Along with the software, the glare in the screen is a constant annoyance.
Excerpt: I did a fair amount of research into which ereader to buy, and found the UK selection somewhat limited (though this has improved now). My main problem was that I just wanted to read on it, so ruled out any with a keyboard as I felt this took up extra, unused space.
