The eReader functions perfectly, but there are defects in the background.

Summary: This is a good device for reading. It is light weight and easy to navigate. As mentioned above, it does have some defects in the reading area, which takes some getting used to. At first it bothered me a lot, but I have learned to ignore these imperfections.
Summary: So far it's been great. I'm able to read my favourite books not concerning about book weigh and volume, also I'm able to save money inserting school papers and pdf files in it, instead of printing them. Nevertheless, after all previous advantages, I can hear too the songs that I desire and want. So, with this product, I'm definitely on a better-off situation.
Still capable but competition has better screen and software

Summary: The Sony T-1 came out in 2011, but differs little from the 2013 Sony T-3 model. First the differences, (1) 800 khz processor on the T-1; 1 ghz on the T-3. This translates into faster pages turns and response on the T-3. (2) T-1 screen resolution 800 x 600; T-3 1024 x 758 (3) T-1 battery rated at 1 month; T-3 battery rated at 2 months.
Summary: it was purchased as a gift, the recipient loves it, and is still using it. White edging is easy on the eyes it mimics that page and doesn't feel confining for ease of eye movement on your page.
Summary: Very nice screen but refuses to list books correctly, crapy software makes a beautiful reader pretty much useless so I am still looking for usable firmware or a fix while I use my old reader for my many books.
Excerpt: As a reader the Sony PRS-T1 is a good competitor to any of the others. As a music player it's better than most cheaper and equal to most high-end dedicated players. It also allows the user to take notes in handwriting using a stylus. The big problem is that the user interface can be frustrating....
Great and format versatile ereader for reading lovers like me :)

Summary: Sony never lets me down, although in price and flexibility of system (I mean being too restrict, too exclusive when it comes to accessories) I still go for it because the quality and design are simply outstanding. This ereader has a great improvement in handling the PDFs, I owned a PRS 600 and it is a lot more "pearl" like, I mean, the background is really light and the fonts are really dark and this contrast makes it even more similar to a paper.
