I own an Odyssey, a Kindle 3 (now Kindle Keyboard) and an eDGe. But I had the chance of testing for a couple of days a friend's Sony PRS-T1.
The screen of the Odyssey looks a bit more gray than the T1 or the K3. But, in my opinion, it does not influence the reading experience that much. Overall, the Odyssey does a very good job when you want to read EPUBs and you want to fine-tune your reading experience (but they should include a setting for the margins, I agree.)
Pro's: many advanced settings while reading EPUBs, you can load your own fonts (!!!), side buttons for turning pages, aluminium back, you can create and use your own dictionaries
Con's: USB driver still to be fixed (new firmware: when???), power switch difficult to operate, no PDF reflow
If you have a chance of trying it, please proceed. As suggested above, if you want to get one, check that it does not have assembling problems (buttons, power switch, microUSB port).
