But I was quite happy with the Sony before the lighted readers came out, and if Sony introduced a lighted reader with the same general feel as the PRS-T1, that would be the perfect reader for me - worth an upgrade.
This is also my situation. My first reader was a Sony and I liked it better than the other options at the time. I upgraded to the T1 ands still prefer it over other devices, but would take a nice lighted Sony. If I had not previously owned a reader, I would probably choose the Paperwhite.
