Sony Reader Digital Book (PRS-700)

PC Magazine
20 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Sony Reader PRS-700 is an elegantly designed, easy-to-use device for e-book fans. As long as you can deal with the steep price and the lack of wireless book buying, it's a good read.
  • Pros: Touch-sensitive screen. Streamlined interface. Attractive design.
  • Cons: Pricey. Doesn't provide wireless download of titles (unlike Amazon's Kindle). LED sidelights aren't very strong.

Gesture Controls Make Sony E-Reader Easy to Handle

20 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The slick touchscreen and clean menus make the PRS-700 easy to befriend. Reading aficionados will appreciate the gesture-controlled page turns and the LED sidelights. Though the device comes with a stylus, it often responds better to your fingertip. WIRED User interface is a breeze. Handles PDFs like a pro. Sidelights are a blessing for considerate insomniacs.
  • Pros: User interface is a breeze. Handles PDFs like a pro. Sidelights are a blessing for considerate insomniacs.
  • Cons: Screen looks better than it works: Major glare kills eyes, some text looks fuzzy, and touch controls are finicky.

Sony PRS-700 Review

20 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Eyestrain, cramped fingers, sore wrists… these are the hallmarks of reading online. In fact, when doing so, usability experts assert that we’re not really reading at all, and flip through websites so fast that we barely even register the information in our brains (no skimming this review, please!). An electronic, or “eBook” is supposed to be different, though – it’s a relaxed experience more akin to reading an actual printed publication.
  • Pros: Holds 350 books; easy to use; stylish and slim
  • Cons: No wireless access; have to buy books on computer; smaller selection than Kindle

Sony PRS-700

23 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Un’ altro ebook reader della Sony di cui oggi faremo una recensione è il PRS-700 . L’ ebook reader di casa Sony ha uno schermo touchscreen da 6″ E-ink con un elevato contrasto ed una risoluzione molta alta di 170 dpi.            Il touch permette di interagire con il PRS-700 proprio come un vero libro, basta un semplice sfioramento col dito e subito vi ritroverete nella pagina successiva, dandovi cosi l’impressione di leggere su di un libro cartaceo e non su un...

Eerste indruk: Sony Reader Digital Book

12 August 2009
  • Excerpt: De Sony Reader is het eerste elektronische boek dat ik in handen heb. En ik moet zeggen, met zo'n mooi leren hoesje erom houdt het in ieder geval al vast als een echt boek. Het voelt licht in je handen en het is klein en dun genoeg voor iedere handtas. Het scherm is 6 inch en werkt met elektronische inkt . Dit betekent dat het scherm alleen grijswaarden kent, en geen backlight zoals computerschermen. Rustig voor je ogen dus.

Sony Reader Digital Book (PRS-700)

14 March 2009
  • Summary: Вкупе с элегантным дизайном, сенсорным экраном и другими аксессуарами, Sony Reader Digital Book PRS-700 среди «читалок» электронных книг представляет собой большой шаг вперед. Проблема только одна: 400 долл. — это дорого. (За эти деньги можно купить нетбук!) Еще Sony Reader не обладает преимуществами Amazon Kindle, в частности, функциями беспроводных покупок.
  • Pros: Сенсорный экран. Упрощенный интерфейс. Привлекательный дизайн.
  • Cons: Дорогой. Нет беспроводной загрузки книг (в отличие от Amazon Kindle). Светодиодная подсветка сажает батарею.
