so tempted, but as both our 505's are still working just fine, I can't really justify it [yet]

I'd say go for it. A 505 is no match for the T1.

Do you know of anywhere in the uk where I can buy one for £50-£90? New.

Until then, sticking with my 505.

Never mind. The 505 is still serving me well. Imho the best reader Sony designed.

I couldn't get it online. They're making me do in-store pickup. Luckily there is a store near where I work that has them in stock.

For 6" readers prior to the T1, the 650 is the best. I've had a 505. The 650 is much nicer.

Fry's should go out of business given the type of business they do. They put things on sale and then don't allow online ordering. DOWN WITH FRY'S!

Same here. I have a 350 and it works wonderfully. $79.99 is a good price but I have to weigh want against need and need wins the round.

Woo-hoo! I had to go to Frys for some work stuff today (didn't fight too hard) and I thought I'd just check and see...turns out there was one more, brand-new in its box, hiding away behind a bunch of other e-readers, at the back of the shelf. It priced out at $79.99, even though the sticker still showed full price.

This happens pretty often at our local Frys, which is pretty disorganized - their online system will say something is out of stock, but if you go and look, you can find one tucked away somewhere on a shelf. Of course, it happens the other way sometimes too - the system will say it's in stock, and it won't be when you get there. Win some, lose some, but glad I won this one.

I think Frys must be closing out the Sony Readers. The fancy display with the advertising is beaten up and the demo unit is gone at our local store. And, when I talked to the sales associate to verify the price on the last one they had left (that I bought), he said he didn't think they were going to get any more in. He had the impression they weren't going to carry Sony Readers any more. So in that case, if it's a close-out, it's understandable they only have spotty availability - what's left in stock at their stores.
