What Color???

Hello

I am ordering the sony prs505 on Friday and I thought I knew which color I wanted (silver) because it would go with any of the covers and look nice......but I just read a review which said that the blue color was the best choice to go with because it made the text look cleaner and easier to read...........what do you guys think????? Have you noticed any difference in readability based on the color of the reader???? And how dark a blue is it??? Is it very close to black??

I think it makes no difference whatsoever. Pick the one you like the most. 99.9% of your focus will be on the book.

The silver is the best because it makes you even smarter than you already are!

Seriously, I don't think it matters in terms of sharpness of text. You can also put a skin on your 505 to change it.

There really is no question here. Silver is the only color to choose. (The Lone Ranger didn't call his horse 'Blue,' did he? No.) People with silver e-book readers get better service in supermarkets, have nicer weather, and always know what day of the week it is. Usually.

My Sony is silver. I would never even consider having a blue one, much less a red one. Unless I had a blue or red one. Then I'd consider it. But ONLY then. I'm not even sure why Sony made colors other than silver? What were they thinking?!? Now... if they made one in Robin's Egg Blue I might be tempted.... Nah.... Silver.

It really doesn't matter for the clarity or contrast with the typography. It all has to do with not clashing with my shoes. Silver goes well with everything. Except gold, that is, but I don't have any gold shoes so no problem!

I love my blue, but I also love the red, and my mom loves her silver

I have a pretty cloth cover I bought on etsy to give it some oomph
