I bought this item as a gift for my wife. This is the second one I have bought for her. I bought her a second one that she leaves in the car for when she gets delayed and doesn't have her first one with her. She loves her readers and uses them all the time. The screen is easy to read and the menus are easy to navigate and quite intuitive. Books are easy to buy and load on the device. Battery life is generally good but if you are not careful how you charge it the battery will not last long.
Larger and heavier than the previous Sony Pocket edition, but screen is slightly larger, which is good. Has all the features of previous edition, plus upgraded additions. Does not have the finger swipe option to page turn- uses the circle arrow at bottom instead. Has the option of bookmarking/page marking a particular page number, to return back to. Larger battery life. Option of using either the side press number bars, or the bottom circle arrow button at bottom to navigate through settings.
I bought several readers such this for me and my friends.
+ Light and compact.
+ High quality paper (not pearl but very good).
+ Understands a lot of format (understands even fb2/zip after installing a custom firmware).
+ Has several useful applications such as dictionary, calculator, chess etc (when using a custom firmware)
- Doesn't have a slot for a memory card (but has enough internal memory to store a lot of books).
- Can't play music (but it's book reader, not music player)
- Doesn't have a wall charger included, have to buy separately.
I owned a Sony ereader in the past and after years of daily use it finally quit holding a charge. I looked at Kindles etc but did not want the headache of something that connects to the internet. This little reader was perfect. Works similar to the older Sony. It's smaller in size but alot easier on the eyes. I can go 4 or 5 days without charging, and charging takes about an hour.
Love this product!! The battery life is Amazing...already read over 200 pages of a book, and the battery indicator states full.
Easy to use, easy to download books to. GREAT Item.
Highly recommend to any avid reader!
