Crap firmware makes a beautiful reader useless

R. Browning "t5grrr", Amazon
8 November 2013
  • 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.

Compact solution, yet battery kills all advatages of this e book.

  • Summary: This e book is compact solution for outside reading, when traveling to school or university. Yet it has a huge con, its battery. If reading scanned document, the battery life depletes enormously fast.

Screen froze, short warranty, no charger

Pocket Brain "pocketbrain", Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: Broke 4 months after purchase despite careful handling (never dropped). Lower half of screen froze white & vertical stripes down left side. I think it's a faulty device, which Sony ought to cover, but it's costing $30 for repair (+ postage). Otherwise, it worked well & was fairly easy to import pre-formatted text files from the computer to the reader. We thought Sony was a reliable brand, but wouldn't buy one again because they only warranty for 90 days.

Would be better but for awful warranty

Kluelos, Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: I've had my PRS-T1 for just under 6 months. The Wi-Fi has stopped functioning and won't detect any networks. When I undertook to have it repaired or replaced under warranty, I discovered that the warranty was barely there. If I was willing to settle for trading for a refurbished model, it would cost me $30. If I wanted to have mine repaired, it would cost me a minimum of $25 plus shipping, and I wouldn't have it for however many weeks it took.

Poor for note taking, viewing pdfs, use in dim light, to hold

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 April 2012
  • Summary: Product was purchased with the intentions of using it for note taking and reading pdf files in addition to reading books. Note taking using the stylus is difficult; any slight touch of the screen by part of the hand causes a line to be drawn marring the notes. The screen is simply too sensitive for easy note taking with the stylus or your finger Reading pdf files is cumbersome.

  • Excerpt: Half-hearted product, over priced. ePub DRM a major headache. The publishers have handed the eBook market to Amazon on a platter.

Ambigous product

Es, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: This machine is a great dissapointment to me. While the reader as such is very good and i am mostly pleased with it, the software needed for communication with the computer is pure disaster. I have lost many notes via its "tricks", and many hours trying to solve these problems, even with the customer support, to no avail. If you want it for casual reading of things yu read once and never again, its a great choice.

Worst Sony Reader yet!

R. Richardson, Amazon
24 November 2011
  • Summary: I've been using Sony Readers for about 4 years -the PRS-T1 is my third. It's very unstable - I'll be reading and all of a sudden the pages start streaming rapidly. Sometimes it goes directly to the last page of the book. The touch also is too sensitive - often when I turn a page, the dictionary opens. NOT HAPPY!
