  • 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.

Customer service is ATROCIOUS

  • Summary: It is a great book simple to use, no back lit screen to prevent headaches. Unfortunately I find up loading a book from the computer more of a task then it should be. Customer service is awful, I purchased a book sometime ago and can no longer find it in my library I contacted customer support and it I recieved a genric reply 2x before I got a personalized e-mail giving me the same directions I'd already been given that didn't seem to work & my follow up to that went...

Great e-reader for the price

  • Summary: Got this for my daughter whom is an avid reader. The text is bright with the e-ink display and battery life is phenomenal. She uses it a lot for reading and checking her email. WiFi works great. Unit is extremely light. I highly recommend it.

Good ereader especially when using the library

Paul, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this after I cracked my Kobo. I love the fact it connects to my library. I can download books directly from the library website. The web surfing is not that great, but it only takes a minute to download if I know what I want. I have used it for email, but I wouldn't call that a great experience. I have gone through through about 80 books in the year+ I've owned it, and it still runs smooth. I have noticed that "sleep mode" acts up. and may hang the ereader.

Not just for entertainment--A good work tool

Carol Brown "oreo cookie", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had my Sony reader for eight months now. The reason I chose a reader over a tablet is battery life. I charged my reader when I first bought it. Since then it only get a charge when I plug it in to download books. I have never seen it less than full charge. I Chose Sony over the other readers because of the Large storage available (32 Gig). The other readers talked about sending my personal files into their cloud. The word "Cloud" means internet.

Excellent e-reader

Part Time, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: Basically an excellent e-reader. All the functions work well and the controls are convenient and quite intuitive. The screen is very good, clear, but it could use a bit whiter screen background ("brighter", or more contrast) - the "paper white" could be "whiter." Sony realized this and the new PRS-T2 got a bit whiter screen, BUT the T2 dropped the MP3/audio player function which the T1 (this player) has.

Good quality ereader, comparable with kindle

Marijn, Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: I own a Kindle and wanted to have a second ereader. There are a lot of good comments on the Sony so i opted for that one. Similar design as the Kindle, but with navigation buttons on the front and not the sides, or by using the screen. Reading quality is good, reader feels good as well when holding it. One thing which can be improved is putting ebooks on the reader. This works excellent on the Kindle (love it!) but takes some more steps on the Sony.

My second one...

FlSuep "Sue", Amazon
15 September 2012
  • Summary: I must have liked the reader well enough as I bought a second one. Yes, the first one was fun and I was able to do the internet suff I needed, like check-in for travel when away. BUT DON'T BE A DOPE, AND LEAVE IT ON A PLANE. YOU'LL NEVER GET IT BACK. Don't buy this reader if you believe you will do a lot with the internet. It is somewhat hard to work with (read and jumpy) but it works. It is easy to setup and download books. Reading books in the sun is not problem.
