Been a while, suggestions for a reader?

As the subject implies, it's been quite a while since I was looking for a reader. I've currently got the Sony PRS-300 which I've been pretty happy with, especially for the size. Storage space limitations don't bother me, it's far more than I need to carry a ton of books around with me.

However, lately it feels like the battery life may be waning a bit, and its CPU takes forever when I first open a book to render/flow everything out, and *deity* help me if I accidentally hit the zoom button, takes forever because I need to go from S->M->L->S again.

Anyway, logically the PRS-350 would be my upgrade device, but is there anything with some faster page turns? The 0.7s doesn't bug me too much, but if there's faster I'll take it. I saw the Bookeen Cybook Opus, which according to the Reader Matrix has a 0.1s page turn mode. Huh? Does this actually work as specified and does it still give me good quality text?

I would say this is a good spot to start.

I suggest waiting to see what comes out later this year. Rumor has it that Sony may be doing a front lit Reader.
