Great reader, crap software.
22 July 2012
Summary: PRO:The device itself is nicely priced for its specs. Larger than average screen, decent memory, and I have had no issues stocking it with books from a third party vendor or my own private collection. Interface is clumsy, but tolerable. Battery life gives me at least a week of heavy use. CON: Sony's "READER" software is an astonishingly clumsy, slow and bug-ridden work of crap.
Summary: I bougth this product to can read PDF books. This ereader shows the books just fine, because to me is not a white background. Also it's slow to move to next page or search another book. I think is better a tablet or new kindle, because i prefer read the PDF on my iphone 4.
Summary: bought ths refurbished reader a few weeks ago. Works OK but som trouble with the glare in the touchscreen at some angles. Didn't notice the custom taxes so this went from not so cheap to expensive..if you live in Sweden be aware that you should add an extra 100 dollar at the price. The wifi doesn't work but I didn't expect it to..eg it maybe work but it can't find any store..
I have had to replace each of the three sony readers I purchased, most several times

Summary: I have used the sony reader for numerous years. I have always had to replace the first one (brand new) that I have received, with the exception of this Daily Edition reader which was sent to me to replace the Touch which I had to have replaced four times within about 6-8 months. The current problem I have is with the Sony Reader Library software. Every time I purchase a book, I have to call tech support because the software no longer works.
Summary: I really like the hardware. It has a nice big screen almost like an upscale paper back. The screen is terrific. I have compared it several times to a friend's Kindle and the contrast and clarity are about the same. There is a touch more glare due to the touch screen, but is seldom a real problem. Just tilt it away from the glare. The built in cover is high quality and makes it look like a book.
Summary: Got this device after owning a Sony PRS505 for a couple years and trying my wife's Kindle. I like the big screen and the functionality of the touch screen on this new Sony device. Don't like the glare of the screen; it's not always easy to find an angle to get good readability without serious reflections. The Sony store experience, when browsing using the built-in cellular modem, is slow at best. Kindle beats it hands down.
Summary: I waited a long time for the new Sony Daily Edition. I have carpal tunnel problems that are aggravated by the downward necessary click on the the page advance button on my wife's Kindle. This wouldn't bother 99% of users, but it means I need a touch-screen reader. Here is my take on the new Sony, after reading my first full book on it. Pros: 1. Screen display is close to the size of a real book page.
