Any comments about Sony PRS-300 or BOOKEEN Cybook Opus? Those two would cost about 220 euros. How they compare to pocketbook 360 which would prolly cost me 260 euros (Edited price down, seems to be 239 + 19.90 from ebay Germany) or so if I order one from Germany.
If storage size is an issue the Sony PRS-300 does not have a space for a memory card, so you only get the internal memory which says it holds 350 books. I was seriously considering this reader until I hit that obstacle. My e-library is nearing 2000 books and I like to have them all on my reader. If storage isn't an issue, the PRS-300 is a nice reader. Sony builds very sturdy products. The reader software is crap, but you can use Calibre instead.

If you can afford it I'd highly recommend the PocketBook 360. I love mine. It is very light and portable. It comes with it's own hard cover to protect the screen so you don't need to buy an additional cover. And it is by far the most flexible reader in what format types it supports.
