"This has been a disappointment"3.0 starson by jmlarsen1
Pros: Attractive, nice size, more memory than the PRS-550, touch screen
Cons: Battery life is very short compared to PRS-550; doesn't work very well. Have had it replaced already, but battery life still short and the touch screen frequently doesn't work. It has required resetting at least twice in the last month.
Summary: I was hoping this would be an improvement on the PRS-550. It is nice that it holds more books (not that I will ever have 300 books on it) but the battery is very poor. I just took a short trip and the battery was fine when I left, but after a day, it was totally dead. The PRS-550 would last several weeks. After I recharged the battery and used the mechanical page turner (rather than touch), it started jumping forward forcing me to reset it. I did have the PRS-550 replaced right after I purchased it, but after that it has always worked well. Still does. I am wondering why I wasted the money because I am worse off than I was with the PRS-550.
