Cybook is 4 grayscale vs. PRS-505 is 8 grayscale

Hello,
I was under the impression that both devices are using Vizplex. Is there an owner of the PRS-505 that can compare the screen of the PRS-505 to the Cybook for me? Based on the postings of the lucky new Cybook owners I would say they're the same.
Thanks!

The screens are the same, but the controllers are different. Black text will appear the same on both devices, but the 505 can display more grey scales.

JoeC, I see in your device list that you have a Sony device that reads eReader format books. When did Sony put out a device that reads eReader format books? Is this a firmware upgrade I missed?

JSWolf - I made that entry when I was an ignorant newbie. I just changed it. Please forgive me!
