Red. It's the best color for most everything.

Humm...I think I remember a thread or two around here or maybe a poll that mentioned the superiority of the the BLUE color....

****actually, the BLUE color on the 505 is so dark it seems like black. IMO, the darker color makes it seem to fade into the background***

I think this discussion was around almost a year ago. And the agreement then was that dark colored readers were preferable. Due to the screen being concieved as "brighter" on a dark colored reader than on a light colored one

Seriously, I think it's all just a matter of personal preference. I don't recall anyone on here ever saying that the color of their reader has made it difficult for them to read books. You get the color that appeals to you most or the color that you can find, and I think you'll be happy.

I loved my black PRS-500. I loved my silver PRS-505 until they released red. I love red and and whined that I never get the red electronics until my husband gave me the red one last year for Christmas. I loved that red PRS-505, and now I love my PRS-600 in red. In my experience, the color of the reader only ever mattered when I was looking at the color of the reader - not while I was reading.

Pfft! One, little thread is far from the impression you gave of a universal agreement. You have to do better than that

Well, considering it's almost a year ago.... I remembered it as if there were more people involved. I blame age and failing memory on this one
