Summary: Now I can bring large novels with me anywhere since this will always fit in my bag, and won't be as cumbersome as Atlas Shrugged. I love that I can switch to other languages without downloading any add-ons, and the dictionary is amazing to have at my fingertips and for the most part pretty extensive. Even though I think it gets confused with some words with endings (aka "-ly", "ing", etc.
Summary: This is a great reader if you can still find one. It's compatible with most formats - if you have Calibre software (a free download) it's very easy to manage. The hardware is probably the best on the marketplace even today, Kindle white is admittedly whiter and has the inbuilt light but then you are a slave to Amazon's bookstore. If you can buy one of these for around $100 it's a steal. The one I got on Ebay was used but in mint condition.
Summary: I ordered "New" device, but I received used one. I understood it because there were no books (except PDF files for Users). Instead of then there were a lot of empty folders with the writers' names (so all books were deleted). I so this e-book in "Sony style" store and also I own PRS-350. I decided to keep this PRS-650 because it was in the good condition (but who knows how the battery might be exhausted ), I like Sony e-books and, especially PRS-?
Summary: I already had a prs-650, and I purchased a used one for my father, who has never used a computer, and he is using it a lot! So I'm very satisfied. I must warn people buying from outside the US that taxes costed me almost 49 EUROS!!!!!, and it increased the final price a lot! I thought that a a second one product had not taxes, and I was very disapointed.
A must have reader, capable of carrying a library.

Summary: Although the price is still a bit high, the reader is a must have device for those who love reading, since you can carry a whole library in it, and it is easy to handle. The screen is like a book page, no glares at all. And the most important for me: I can read my own PDF and word documents.
Summary: Never used any other reader and was brought this one for a birthday present. I've now used it for 4 months and can safely say that I love it. Easy to read, easy to use, EBook software not great but sufficient. Would reccomend to anyone.
Summary: I researched e-readers for almost a year before I finally purchased the Sony PRS-650BC. Others must have been aware of its qualities as well because I could not get one anywhere in Australia. I ordered one via Amazon; it arrived within four days, all the way from the US to Australia. Great service! The Reader is exactly what I wanted.
Summary: I finally received my Sony PRS-650 about a week ago just before leaving on a flight. I found the Reader easy to use. The controls, for the most part, are very intuitive, and easy to learn. It handles PDFs well, and the open epub format makes it easy to comparison shop for the books I want. The size is also user-friendly. Nothing about this reader feels second rate. It is a quality product and it does add to the whole reading experience.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the product, nice design and the RED colour is gorgeous!!! It surpassed my "severe" expectation. It's much lighter than other ereaders and has all the features I need.
