Mine arrived today - I've already downloaded a library book and a Google Book. Once I got the wireless working, everything works wonderfully.

A few hiccups with the library having multiple duplicates of some books, but apparently that's a problem with the beta version of Calibre I'm using. Deleted the duplicates and reloaded them, and that's fine. The library manager has force closed a few times, too, but I also think that's a Calibre problem.

It is REALLY shiny - it doesn't look so much like shiny plastic as it does shiny varnish (yes, I know it's plastic, I'm describing how it *looks*) - even shinier than I was expecting. Reading with an over-the-shoulder lamp is causing some glare that I'm not at all happy with. I wasn't planning to skin it, but I may have to.

Other than the shine, I'm extremely happy with it.

Sounds like white is the only way to avoid the excessive shine. However, the red is really nice looking! I was hoping it wouldn't need a skin to avoid the glare.

I found both the shine and colour of both the red and black ones to be too distracting to read with. Although in general, I would normally prefer those colours to white (as they are easier to keep clean ...or at least harder to see dirty marks), I decided on the white as it was less distracting and the black shows up fingerprint marks really badly.

After moving to the bedroom, where the lighting is different, I didn't find the bezel distracting at all. I may have to work with the lighting in the living room to reduce the glare.

All-in-all, I love the reader - I wish they'd made the front the same nice matte finish as the back, but I can work with it.

There was some bugs in yesterday's build. Kolenka fixed them last night and Kovid created a new beta build this morning.

As a man, I have the same question. Photos do not also give a perfect impression of different shades of color, but metal strip sure looks pink to me, and the pics I have seen of the accompanying case also appear to be pinkish. Previous "Red" Sony readers have not presented this concern. I wish they would go back to the shade of the red 505. It was perfect in my view.

Well I've ordered the red one. Maybe I'll have it sometime this year. I bought it because my cell phone is red and I am a creature of habit. If no one chimes in before I get mine, I'll let you know.

Without any skins, I like the red finish, as I lusted after a red 505 back in the day, but already had a silver when the red came out..

I'm still sitting on my hands waiting for DecalGirl to come out with T1 skins and see how everything looks, and see if the crashing problems are going to be resolved (I certainly hope so).
This is exactly where I'm at. Debating whether I will want to skin or not, and if not, I'm leaning toward the white device. If I do skin, then the black device might work as well or better, with that black slanted edge helping the screen "pop".

So for the moment, I am waiting.

The metal strip IS red, but its one of the reflective type that can reflect pink and fushia and many different shades of red. But, yes, it looks pink, but it's really red.

My wife is looking at Decalgirl's Sakura design, so we are waiting for the red to be available locally. Or white if she waffles back to Lost Worlds.

I guess another way of asking is: "Live, in-person does that 'pink panel' stand out from the red unit frame, or blend in (more than it appears from photos/videos)?"

It's very pink. I got the red one yesterday and everybody who has seen it is calling it pink.
