Thanks, it's good to know that the 700 handles PDF's well - so long as they're not too large (A4 - 8.5x11") or full page image PDF's (for the whole book). The reflow might be useful so long as the formating of the text looks good.

But the big question is whether the 505 can handle PDF's as well as the 700. I think the one feature the 505 doesn't have is being able to pan while zoomed in on a PDF. That's useful for looking at larger PDF's (A4 - 8.5x11") but probably not need for book sized PDF's (6x9"). If the 505 can work well enough with PDFs then I can save myself $100 bucks (can get it for $199).
