Where to buy Sony Reader 505 in NY, NY?

Hi all,

a friend of mine is probably going to NY for a few days. Does anybody know where exactly he can find the reader? I don't want him to loose too much time seeking. I recon he will be mostly in Manhattan.

Thanks for any tips
Andreas

Cheapest in Manhattan is as www.datavis.com ( http://datavis.com/cgi-bin/product.exe?prrfnbr=472536 ) for $279.99 plus NYC tax which brings it to $302.37. They have dozens of them right by the door (silver) and some blue ones upstairs. Bring a copy of the web printout if you can, because the box was marked with a $300 price tag which I suspect they would have charged if I didn't have the printout in hand. They are on Fifth avenue and 39th street and are authorized sony dealers. You could go over to B and H photo at 9th and 34th, but they get you for another $10 and they can be a pain about price matching. Or the Sony Store, of course, on Madison avenue in the 50's for $300+tax

J&R (downtown) is also a good source.

Do any of these places sell the 500 model? (New or refurb?)

Thanks a lot for your help. So in about two weeks I should also be owner of a PRS.
Thanks

Picked up a 505 today at Datavision. They are by the front door, just to the right in a case. Note that the boxes all have a silver picture but the actual color (blue or silver ) is printed on front.

Bring in a price printout from their website and they should give you that price ($279.99) instead of the $299.99 sticker price, no hassle. $303.xx out the door!

How much does the 500cost there? Datavision sells the 505s for $20 less than Sonystyle ($280 plus tax if you show them the website printout), just down the road at 39th and 5th.

Darn! I should have checked them first. I work just 2 blocks away. But the 505 is nice too. (We have one of each now.)

Are the 500's refurbs? Or just getting rid of the remaining stock?

My guess.....refurbs. That is what Sony is selling the refurbished 500's for on SonyStyle.com
