Comparing the displays of the PRS-505 and PRS-700

Over the weekend I visited a Borders bookstore which had the PRS-505 and PRS-700 sitting side by side. When you look at both next to each other, the 505's display is obviously better. Specifically, it's more paper-like and the letters are relatively much more sharp. The 700's display is more muddied and closer to a poorly lit monitor. I had read this feedback elsewhere but wanted to confirm for myself. In short: the additional features of the 700 are nice, but the essential reason for an e-book device is the paper-like display. If I had to choose tomorrow, I'd get a 505 no question.
