Summary: I had high hopes when I opened my gift box to see an e reader. I did not know that much about the Sony one but rather had looked at another reader. The Sony PRS-505 would be the basic no frills answer if looking for a reader. You have 3 choices of font sizes and the plain background is easy to read in good light. For those of a "certain age" it becomes difficult to see in low light.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Very light -easy to carry
Cons: E books cost, Hard to see in low light, Must manage with computer, Must order power cord
