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. Charger a good thing to have as charging through USB port is cumbersome, as entire library has to reload. Good used should be twenty dollars plus shipping. Easy on the eyes, and several useful options.
Excerpt: I recommend this as a first e-reader this is very easy to use, and works well with most down-loadable sites. The screen is easy to read, and the size of the text can be changed easily. It was simple to search the Sony Reader store to find titles to download, and the process went smoothly. Not having wireless access isn't really a drawback; it actually makes it simpler to use, in my opinion. The touchscreen is responsive, and the included stylus works well.
Excerpt: I received mine as a gift for Christmas 2009 because I ran out of space for regular books (trend to downsizing). I try to plan ahead to take it to appointments or while waiting for car repairs. The numerous fonts are helpful, but I wish I could read it a little more easily at night in bed. The other downside is that advancing the page is awkward for a right-handed person. I also would appreciate a built-in clock. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Excerpt: I purchased this after Christmas last year (of course paying DOUBLE what it costs now..) as my gift to myself. I love it and love the versatility of where I can obtain books. That was my biggest "Pro" when I decided to get a Sony over the Nook or Kindle. I can truly get books from just about any website and (convert them if necessary) use them on my Sony Touch Edition. I am a very heavy reader and the battery does not last more than 4 days for me.
