Which Hanlin Ebook is worth buying ?

I've seen there are many versions to the Reader.
Which Hanlin Ebook today can compete the Sony Reader for example ?

The new V3 looks to be almost identical to the sony reader, but it is slightly bigger and made of plastic instead of metal.

The website makes NO mention of the V6. Are you sure it's real?

Well... The guy from EBay (which has a store) told me that this is the link to the product and its V6 (He is willing to sell it for 200$).

In case it is the V6 , Is the device worth anything ?

Well, that link got me curious, as it's an unreferenced link on the english site. So I started going through them in order, ie id=01, id=02 ++.

I think that link is an old model. The L6+? It only has an LCD screen and it'd probably only be in Chinese, so it's not worth getting.

I have both V8 and V3. I think V3 is worth to buy.

There is a table in their web

But the V3 is a lot pricey then the Sony Reader.
How much better is it ?

I was just looking on the site for the V2t and it looks like it's not in their product list. I can see it by searching. According to the release date, it should be out. I hope it's still in the works because it looks like just the product I'm looking for. The V9t is impressive but I like the idea of a small reader for when I just want to read a novel and want something I can toss in my handbag.

PS: Just wanted to say a quick hello to the forum. I've been lurking here for months trying to make my decision about a reader. There seem to be so many kind, helpful people here so I just wanted to say hello and thanks!
