Sony Reader PRS-T2: An incremental upgrade

30 October 2012
  • Summary: The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.
  • Pros: The Sony Reader PRS-T2 is a compact and lightweight touch-screen e-book reader with built-in Wi-Fi and fast page turns. It offers access to a large catalog of e-books, magazines, and newspapers via Sony's online store, plus online loaners from your local library. It also supports EPUB files, and is compatible with any e-book store that uses the Adobe DRM format. Its battery lasts for up to two months on a single charge with Wi-Fi off.
  • Cons: At $129, the PRS-T2 costs $10 more than competing models that have an integrated light. The Sony bookstore isn't as extensive as Amazon's or B&N's, and the Sony Reader app isn't currently available on the iPhone and iPad.

Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review

11 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony has never been a major player in the e-book reader market. The Sony Reader line has kicked around for half a decade, but has never been able to catch up to industry leader Amazon. With the holiday season approaching, Sony’s decided to give the dedicated e-reader another go, this time with touch. Has it finally caught up to Amazon? Almost. If the new Kindle Paperwhite weren’t around, Sony would finally be in a place to make up some ground with its new Reader.
  • Pros: Improved screen refresh and contrast, Touch capability, microSD support, Facebook and Evernote support, Two months of battery life
  • Cons: No light-up screen, Higher price than competitors, Touch interface not as user-friendly as competitors, Screen refreshes can leave behind dirty screen, Must tether to PC to get updates, DRM book selection

Sony PRS-T2 eReader Review

Good E-Book Readers
24 September 2012
  • Conclusion: If you are looking for a dedicated e-reader that allows you to browse and borrow free eBooks from the library, this is for you. There is simply no other e-reader on the market that makes the entire borrowing process intuitive and easy to understand. If you are the type of person that just buys all your books, the Sony bookstore has a varied selection of bestsellers.
  • Cons: Turning Pages of books is a chore, PDF support is going downhill, Heavier then the previous model, Sharp Edges on buttons and design hurt after longer reading sessions, NO Audio, Only compatible with Cover and Cover with Light from the PRS-T1.

An ebook reader for the note-taking set

3 September 2012
  • Summary: The Reader PRS-T2 is Sony's best model yet, by far — it's faster and more responsive than ever, and added some genuinely great features to the mix as well. Sony's ecosystem is also becoming more compelling, as the company's phones and tablets get better — though the missing iOS app is a huge hole. Evernote integration sets my heart aflutter, but as useful as it is it doesn't feel quite finished.
  • Pros: Fast, response performance, Evernote compatibility, Thin and light
  • Cons: Evernote integration is really clunky, Display already feels outdated, Bottom-located power button

Sony Reader PRS-T2 review: same old e-reader, new and (mostly) improved design

28 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The PRS-T2 is a slightly refined version of last year's Reader. There aren't many changes to report, but the new Reader remains a solid choice nonetheless.
  • Pros: Note-taking capabilities, Dual-touch zooming, Expandable memory
  • Cons: Some awkward design elements, Image ghosting, No more audio playback, Google Book access

Sony Reader PRS-T2 review

Pocket Lint
19 October 2012
  • Conclusion: There are some things that are sweet about the Sony Reader PRS-T2. It's lightweight, nicely designed and offers plenty of options for getting content on to the device without a PC. READ: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review But there's also something sour. It lacks the latest front-lit display that the Kindle Paperwhite, Kobo Glo or Nook GlowLight will offer you, so it doesn't feel like the most technologically advanced device out there.
  • Pros: Lightweight, plenty of content sourcing options, library lending support
  • Cons: Touch can be a little too sensitive, lacks the comprehensive ecosystem of some rivals, the lack of a front-lit display sets Sony at a disadvantage

Sony PRS-T2 : E-Book-Reader mit guter Ausstattung

12 September 2014
  • Summary: Toller Bildschirm, flotter Seitenaufbau, WLAN-Zugang und Speicherkartenschacht: Der Sony Reader PRS-T2 glänzt vor allem durch seine sehr gute Hardware. Auch das geringe Gewicht sorgt unterm Strich für ein kräftiges Plus. Nützliche Zusatzfunktionen wie das Posten auf Facebook, der (eingeschränkt nutzbare) Browser und die Möglichkeit, handschriftliche Notizen zu verfassen, fallen ebenso positiv auf.
  • Pros: schneller Seitenwechsel, sehr gute Verarbeitung, praktisches Bedienkonzept, PDF-Reflow-Modus
  • Cons: E-Book-Shop führt nicht immer alle Bestseller, keine Frontbeleuchtung

Sony Reader PRS-T2 : eReader multifunzione

1 July 2013
  • Summary: Sony Reader PRS-T2 è un eReader con touchscreen E-Ink Pearl da 6 pollici, che integra Facebook, Evernote e un browser complete.
  • Pros: Android, Wi-Fi, integrazione di Facebook ed Evernote, browser completo e veloce, scrittura e disegno a mano libera, assemblaggio di qualità
  • Cons: Prezzo elevato e scarsa localizzazione per l’Italia, come testimoniano l’assenza del dizionario italiano, dei vocabolari dall’italiano ad altre lingue e dello store dedicato

Обзор Sony PRS-T2. Революции не получилось

26 March 2013
  • Summary: По цене Sony PRS-T2 в России не сильно отличается от первой. Что обидно, по функциям особо тоже ничего нового не сделали. Плеер убрали, и для многих это может оказаться критичным. Цена-то немаленькая. Кнопки ещё сменили, но мы бы тоже не отнесли это к серьёзным моментам. К слову, далеко не все считают, что это изменение пошло на пользу. Ладно, достоинства и недостатки мы перечислили, поговорим о главном. В штатах Sony PRS-T2 стоит примерно 130 долларов.
  • Pros: Высокое качество сборки, Более удобные кнопки, Отличный экран, Самый лёгкий ридер
  • Cons: Нет аудио, Невзрачный внешний вид, Всё ещё неудобные бортики, Неторопливая работа
