Fortunately for my ego, I've already been disabused of my speed-reading delusions by my wife, who thinks that Jane Eyre is a nice afternoon's diversion. And she's nothing to one of her professors who won't watch the Sense and Sensability screenplay because she can read it faster than the show runs.
So if I understand you right, your wife can read a page on the Sony Reader faster than the e-ink page can turn to the next one. Thus, she dislikes the Sony Reader because it slows her reading speed too much.
