Yes, for many the added features will be worth the money. I also think that someone who was thinking of picking up the prs-600 and additionally buying a cover, travelling case and charger would be better off picking up the 900, as what they would pay for the extras would probably just about cover the price difference, AND they get a better and larger screen.
I think of the 900 as being Sony's luxury model, a Mercedes compared to the 300 which would be a cute little Honda Civic. It is pricey, but I do feel that the price is justifiable, especially given that the model just came out on the market. I can see it selling for $50-$70 less about a year from now, without the added travel case.
