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).
Power switch was changed in the new version, usb too, as the plug wasn't fixed well enough. As to the USB conexion being unstable, i don't know if the new version fix that
