Fantastic Sony PRS-600 Review

Wow! Unbelievably detailed 600 review at The Gadgeteer. If you're on the fence, go here. Review is really good and pics are awesome. One of the pics shows the screen glare, but the others also show that it's not really a big deal when reading.

Hi !

I'm still a bit concerned about the glare/reflection we can see on the screen. I really need to hold one in my hands.

The thing I like about this review is that the PRS-600 is actually displaying the book I'm currently reading What were the odds !

Thanks for the link. Yes, a great review. I like it, but already have a 505. Five years ago the 600 would have sold strictly for its sketching abilities: as a 6" electronic steno pad.

Great review. Thanks for posting the link.

The 600 looks like it'll be good for taking notes on books -- something I've missed with the 505.

I just saw this

left to right: 505, 600, 700

click on the image to zoom.

I can see why people hated the 700.

The 600 looks pretty good here. Main reason I'm thinking about one is the ability of searching "Where was the first use of <whatever> in this book?"

Excellent review! But I would like to say the Kindle is much better than the Sony Reader because there are more books available for the Kindle, and books on the Kindle are cheaper than books on Sony Reader.



Have a good day....

The above post should have been deleted in its entirety, IMO.
