Pros quick response touch screen, screen is crisp and clear, no glare, the way the stylus hides right in the corner makes no worry of losing it.
Cons no light so you cant read it in the dark, no memory slot for expanding memory, no wi-fi, no 3g
Summary this is my first e-reader, my husband bought it for me for my birthday yesterday. so far ive played with it for quite a while, and its still fully charged. ive already added 5 books to it, which makes 13 total with the ones that come on it. although you have to actually plug it into your computer to add books it's quite simple to do it and its very quick. the only problem ive had is when i charged it thru USB (when i first opened it) i let it charge for about 6 hours and it still never said it was finished, so i unplugged it and attempted to turn it on and it said 'low battery' and shut right off. so i plugged it into the wall, let it charge and after 5 mins the light on the top shut off and it was fully charged. other than that i think its possibly the best e-reader ive used (ive used the kindle and the nook) this surpasses them both by FAR! i like how small it is, and my favorite thing about it is the way you can draw or right notes, the tapping in the corner to easily and simply bookmark a page, and how you can tap ANY word twice and it will pull up its meaning in the dictionary. i also like how you dont have to push down on the touch screen for it to register your moves, the lightest most gentle touch is more than enough for the PRS-350. so as for now, ill stick with sony!!
Pros light , a really dedicated ebook reader , internal memory is more than enough , the screen is great (no glare).
Cons small font size (but it's propotional to its size , so it's no bother for me actually !)
Summary A really dedicated ebook reader , why did I say that ? because with no wireless function , no web browser , no mp3 feature , it really is just the perfect gadget for reading only ! It's my second ebook reader , the firs one being sony reader prs 600 , I wanted to feel the improvement of the screen (couldn't find the prs 650 , so I bought this one) and no I'm fully satisfied ! :D I even realize how I don't really that much memory that prs 600/650 offers , 2gb internal memory in prs 350 is enough . the mp3 feature ? I never use it !
Pros Lightweight, an ideal companion for its size, good storage capacity.
Cons No audio compared to the other Sony Reader models, no SD card slot, no wireless ebook store (I have to go on turn on the computer before buying a new book).
Summary Overall this reader is 4 out of 5.
Pros E-PUB support
fantastic build quality
excellent battery life.
Cons small price premium over others, but worth every penny.
Summary The best reader by a long shot. If you want onboard connectivity get the 950.
Pros 1) Pocket size, but big enough for enjoyable reading experience. 2) epub support, so free copies of current books available from library. 3) Touch screen, it's the difference between a good and a great reading experience. 4) Long battery life.
Cons 1) High cost for e-rook coeader and the lighted book cover. 2) The lighted book cover is too wide (+1 inch), but is so darn useful I can't get rid of it...
Summary Great e-reader. The Sony should be ranked higher by CNET. The Kindle is nice hardware, but is too big, has no touch screen, and does not support epub borrowing from libraries. The Sony lack of wi-fi/3g is a trivial issue for a dedicated e-reader (I've got hundreds of free e-books loaded and waiting to be read), and color screens run down the batteries with no benefit to most readers (except children with color picture books)...
