prs 505 vs prs 350 & 950
I finally was able to be in my local Best Buy store when both the 350 & 950 were working at the same time. I have been lusting after one of the new Sony's since they came out but wanted to handle them in person berfore the splurge. I probably would be more interested in the 650 but the other two gave me a good idea of what to expect when and if it would be available again.
I saw no difference in the two new readers as far as the quality of the reading when they were set up identicaly, however I probably would opt for the 950 simply for the fewer page turns, as I read almost exclusively at home.
Here is the kicker though, I took my 505 with me to compare in the store and found hardly any difference in the print quality (my 505 is set up with default fonts). Also I found the page turning just as easy and more comfortable with my 505 button clicking method vs the swipe turning on the newer reader.
I realize this is simply my own prefrence and there are other things to consider when picking out an ereader, but for me I will be perfectly happy and satisfied with my old 505 till it stops operating.

I loved my 505 too, but I love my newer models even more. For me I really like the extra features of the touchscreen, dictionaries, cover browsing and Wi-fi on my 950. But, if you are just that happy with your 505, then maybe it's best to wait until the next generation of ereaders come out.
