Great item! Love it! Missing some awesome features, but still great.

Summary: This is much better than reading a normal book. It's amazing! It was a little dissapointing that it lost a lot of features from the prs 600, but still really great. Best part is that it has a backlight.
Only one with backlight, great but short battery life.

Summary: This is the only ereader out there with a backlight that has e-ink. The screen isn't shiny so there's no glare so it can be read in the daytime or at night with the backlight. I'm usually using the backlight so maybe that's why it seems like the battery doesn't last long. You can highlight areas and create notes. It accepts different types of ebooks. You don't need any special software to add or delete books. It comes with a cool leather book like cover and stylus.
Summary: it's a wonderful reading machine, it has a decent touch screen that's been very helpful navigating through the book that i've read. though the glare from the screen sometimes a little bit annoying, but you can get rid of it by turning the light as a background. the body is feel firmly in my hand and it's a solid metal, yes right, a solid metal not like some china product plastic.
Summary: I find the reader meets my needs as a college student. I can purchase the same book my classmates have and scan it in (which is time consuming but worth the trouble) and always have all my books with me in a compact space. I can study on the go too! Unexpected delays are not half as unpleasant as they used to be. I also read more leisurely which keeps me in sync with the world. It would be wonderful if this device had wireless like the kindle.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Long Battery Life
