Summary: Bought this to have a backup when my older model fails. This model is very clear and easy to read, but I have not been able to group my books by collections anymore. This is a major inconvenience when you have over a thousand books on the reader, and is a step backwards from my older model.
Summary: I purchased this device several months ago for academic reading and note-taking. It seemed great according to the specs and special abilities, like being able to take handwritten notes, but when I received it, I had nothing but problems with the software. I have learned to deal with many of the quirks of the unit since switching to Calibre library management software, but I don't think I will be buying any Sony readers in the future.
Summary: I had ordered a Nook Simple touch and was so disappointed with it that I returned it. The Sony PRS-T2 is much better. The Nook wouldn't connect to my home WiFi. The Sony PRS-T2 connected to the same network immediately. The T2 has a nicer screen. You can scribble notes and drawings on it with a stylus and save them. I'm sure that this feature will be handy. My only quibble is that you can't to attach the stylus to the reader. I guess you have to buy the case to do that.
Summary: This reader was a father's day present for my husband, he's enjoying it a lot!!!! Ha had one and lost it, I asked him if he wanted a new reader or a tablet, and he chose the reader because it is small an very very light.
