"The Sony REader Daily is almost what it should be"3.5 starson by Green Latern
Pros: Touch screen is very nice, besides the Sony store, you can download at Google books as well. Of course being able to obtain info from your library is another nice feature. It looks great, it has a great protective case, and works well.
Cons: The glare can be annoying at times, but like many have said, just tilt it a little and it is gone. The Kindle has more of a white background and the letters are darker for easier reading. Easy reading is the most important thing here folks.
Summary: I like the features, look, and larger screen for reading over the Kindle with its keyboard on the bottom.Of course being able to obtain information from your library is nice too. The layout of the WSJ on the Sony is better than the Kindle. Don't know why the layout is different. However the Kindle does not have glare, and it's easier to read compared to the Sony since it has more of a white background and the words are darker. It's not a big difference, but enough that it tempts me to get the Kindle. The most important thing is being able to read with your reader. Now it's true if you never saw the Kindle, you would say that the Sony reader is just fine. Yes there is still a glare, but not enough to turn you off from buying it. I can't believe they did not offer a contrast control. That would of allowed me to give this unit 4 full stars instead of 3 1/2. If you have read a paper back with the grey paper and black letters, the Sony is more like that. Still the more I have read with the Sony, the more I have gotten used to it and really have fallen in love with it.Called Sony today 2/25/10, the price has dropped to $379 with free shipping. Looks a little better.
