Excerpt: The Sony Reader Daily Edition is a solid e-Ink reader
Pros: Very easy to read in a bright room, Very big screen size, Excellent customer service, Long lasting battery life (1 week), Fast transfer speed, Very fast turn-on time, Very high apparent quality, Fast to turn between pages, Small footprint, Holds a lot of books (holds 1200 with expansion for up to 50,000)
Cons: Impossible to read in a dark room, Thick, Heavy, Poor fingerprint resistance
Summary: Sony clearly hopes that 3G connectivity and a large touchscreen will make the $399 Daily Edition worth the extra dough over the $259 Kindle 2 or Nook. All things being equal, these features might be enough to convince consumers. However, the slowness of the Daily Edition's interface hindered our appreciation of the device.
Conclusion: The Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950 is my personal favorite among E-Ink ebook readers. It's light and portable yet the larger display shows more words per page (nice if you're a fast reader) and is somewhat better for PDFs. The E-Ink Pearl display is noticeably better than the older Vizplex E-Ink technology with higher contrast that requires less ambient lighting-- there's no need to turn on several lights in a room.
Pros: Excellent Pearl E-Ink display with touch, larger screen yet portable.
