Opinions on ebooks.com ADE-on-505?

Now that we have ADE support I've been browsing around ebooks.com. On the plus side I see a lot of books that aren't on the Sony site. On the minus side, when comparing books on both, the ADEs are consistently more expensive and usually significantly larger.

I hate to spend more money and use up more space, but that beats wasting money on what could be next week's inductee for the Dead Formats Hall of Fame, which is what Sony's format is looking like now. Any happy or miserable ebook.com ADE-on-505 customers?

What I am thinking is that these are mostly PDF with DRM.

I bought one and that is the case. And the one I bought doesn't reflow well.

So what I really need is an A4 sized Reader...

No what you need is quite different: send a mail to ebooks.com explaining why PDF files shouldn't be named "Adobe", and that to support the PRS-505, they need to publish ePub files instead.
