Page turns seem faster but I have experienced the occasional 2-3 second freeze followed by a double page turn which never happened on the 350. So it is not perfect.

My roommate, who has a T1 and a 350, looked at it briefly and said it seems easier to read. Not quite sure why, but it does.

I would not regret the 350 though. Reliable, sturdy and with a very good screen, plus I still love the alphabetical index for collections etc.

I had a friend's Kobo mini for about 2 hours. I didn't have Sony 350 with me, so I can only 'compare' by memory. The colors of the screen are different, mini was more yellow-ish, 350's is milky-grey; fonts on mini 'seem' more black and matted (different color screen gave illusion?) I wouldn't pick one over the other, after 5 min of reading, I forgot their differences.
