Hands on Review of the Sony PRS-T1 e-Reader

Good E-Book Readers
1 April 2013
  • Conclusion: One of the things I noticed right away was the lack of a physical volume slider on the device. It instead relies on software driven controls within the audio application. The T1 does not have speakers but using the headphone jack you can listen to a wide array of media options in AAC or Mp3 formats. I found the sound to be crystal clear, but does not have any kind of EQ. On the front of the unit are 5 buttons which you primarily use for navigation.

Kindle Killer?

Gear Patrol
10 April 2012
  • Excerpt: In the era of the iPad, it’s hard to get jazzed about another dedicated e-reader. As big of technophiles as we are, though, we still think there’s room for a specialized reading device. Sony’s new Reader Wi-Fi ($149) , more formally known as the PRS-T1, claims to hold the new record as the lightest 6-inch e-reader on the market, weighing a feathery 5.92 oz and measuring 0.35-inches thick. It also sports a surprisingly luxurious new body design.

Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1 (2011)

9 April 2012
  • Summary: While there's no compelling reason to buy it over the Kindle Touch, the Sony Reader Wi-Fi is a very solid e-reader.
  • Pros: The Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1 is a compact and lightweight touch-screen e-book reader. It offers access to large catalog of e-books, magazines, and newspapers via Sony's online store, plus online loaners from your local library, has support for EPUB files, and is compatible with any e-book store that uses the Adobe DRM format. This Reader also offers audio capabilities and has a microSD card expansion slot, and its battery lasts for up to five weeks on a single charge ...
  • Cons: At $149, the PRS-T1 costs $50 more than the $99 Kindle Touch and it doesn't offer some of the little extras, like 3G wireless, e-book lending, and social-media integration, that competing e-readers offer. The Sony bookstore isn't as extensive as Amazon.com's, and the Sony Reader app isn't currently available on the iPhone and iPad.

PC Magazine
11 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Sony finally comes down to earth with the Reader Wi-Fi, a $150 ebook reader that compares well with the B&N Nook Touch and upcoming Amazon Kindle Touch.
  • Pros: Slim design. Excellent contrast. Includes a memory card slot, a headphone jack, and ePub support. Attractive font choices.
  • Cons: Clunky Reader Store is difficult to use. No Reader Store-compatible iPhone or iPad apps. A few bugs.

Sony Reader Wi-Fi (PRS-T1RC) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 November 2011
  • Summary: If you're looking for an eReader with a solid selection of eBooks and a stylus, Sony's Reader Wi-Fi is worth a look. But while it beats the Kindle and Nook in terms of note-taking abilities, it falls well behind the competition in many other areas, and costs $30 more. The sluggish keyboard and dropped Wi-Fi connections proved vexing, to say the least.
