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.
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: Got a great deal on a refurb, directly from the Sony store. It's not a bad thing to buy last years model at a huge discount and get a matching cover for free. The reader is a great unit, one of the lightest out there with very clear readability, all necessary connectivity, SD extendable, even plays MP3s. Fits any pocket. No regrets here. So far so good, where I have to take the stars off is for the software.
Summary: Two negative features are : it doesn´t connect with my Mac Power PC notebook, too old! and I expected the screen to become luminous so I could read at night but so far I need a lamp One positive feature is it easily discharges epub books from Wi Fi, quick an d simple.
Summary: I just bought this two weeks ago, and while it is easy to use and set up, there were two things which bothered me. The first is that the battery life is advertised as lasting a month which is not true. In fact, I exchanged the first one because the battery lasted only three days but the replacement does the same thing. I would rank this a 5 Star product if the battery lasted at least 7 days, but it is very inconvenient to have to charge it every 3-4 days!
Excerpt: "...a Kindle and this, the Sony PRS-T1. I've tried reading books on my iPhone and iPad but I wasn't a fan. I've never tried the Kobo to compare, so really I only have one decent e-reader that I've experienced to draw comparison, and that is the Kindle. My friend let me borrow their Sony PRS T1 to review - luckily it came with a book already loaded. My first impression was that it look quite cheap compared to a Kindle. The casing is made of black plastic, ...
Pros: Technically, a good specification . Good screen display .
Pros: Недорогая, приятный дизайн, возможность изменения ориентации страницы в браузере, операционная система Андроид. Легко устанавливается Cool Reader, поэтому нет ограничения при чтении разных форматов. Правда виснут doc файлы больших размеров (13Мb).
Cons: При эксплуатации оказалось, что сенсорный экран скорее недостаток, чем достоинство. При навигации пользоваться им не очень удобно, а вот случайно пролистать страницу, при случайном касании - легко. Из-за хаотичного мерцания экрана пользоваться интернетом тяжело и не приятно. При пролистывании страниц кнопкой - часто случается, что листается две страницы к ряду. Это напрягает. При использовании интернета - аккумулятор опустошается, как вода из сита. В десятки раз быстр...
