Excellent eReader

I spent months comparing the various eReaders, formats supported, whether or not they could handle the DRM books available for temporary download from the library, ease of use and durability. Sony came out the winner, hands down. It supports a huge variety of eBook formats, and was designed for library DRM books using Adobe Digital Editions. The only problem was, I didn't really want a touch screen - I had read that it was too easy to brush the screen by accident and turn a page of the book. And, the only non-touch screen version Sony still made was the 5" pocket reader. My old eyes wanted that extra inch of readable landscape! Fortunately, the PRS-505 is still sold on eBay, with its 6" diagonal screen size. It has a nice feel, sturdy and substantial, with a metal housing. Many of the eReaders are in a plastic housing. I have read library (ePub) books, pdf files, easily converted mobi books to BeBEB with external (free) software, and all display beautifully on the Sony eInk screen. I can't recommend this reader enough.

Terriffic product! Would reccommend it to any one.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This reader is wonderful! My old one died and I searched for another to take its place. I could not have made a better choice.It was billed as used but I could not tell it. The reader was in pristine condition as were the cover and accessories. The seller also included an outside protection cover that is really great!
